Innovative new product to save workshops time and money


Roadsafe, one of Australia’s leading undercar component suppliers for the automotive aftermarket for over four decades, has introduced a suspension replacement innovation that it says will save workshop’s labour, time and money while ensuring an accurate and complete control arm and related bushings replacement.
Roadsafe Replacement Control Arms are said to ensure that general automotive technicians and suspension specialists can fit a completely brand new, high quality control arm as a bolt-in replacement with no pressing required.
The use of Roadsafe Replacement Control Arms reportedly reduces suspension component fitment issues, by eliminating the process of fitting new parts into unknown worn components.
Roadsafe explains that whether the reason for repair is worn suspension arm bushes or a worn ball joint, the other components fitted to the arm have done exactly the same amount of work over its lifespan, so in reality while still serviceable, these components could be on borrowed time, requiring dismantling a second time in the near future.
Another complication with modern vehicles is the use of what are referred to as “time positioned” bushes. This is where the centre hole is offset rather than being dead centre of the bush. 
Roadsafe explains the complication here is when pressing in a new bush, the positioning of the bush is absolutely critical and if pressed in only a few degrees out can lead to alignment issues, harshness, noise and most importantly, shortened service life of the bush which usually leads to a come-back job.
To eliminate all of these issues and create a better result for your customers, while saving workshop time for your business, Roadsafe says you can replace the complete suspension arm and “get the job right the first time.”
Available from Burson Auto Parts stores nationwide, Roadsafe says it offers a vast range coverage across almost five million vehicles for these innovative suspension repair components.
Applications cover a wide variety of vehicles with the range constantly expanding to meet Australian car parc replacement requirements.
The Roadsafe Replacement Control Arm range includes upper arms, lower arms, radius arms and strut rods across both front and rear replacement applications.
The quality of these automotive aftermarket suspension components is backed by a 40,000-kilometre, two-year warranty.
As parts of Australasia’s largest automotive aftermarket company, Bapcor Limited, Roadsafe and Burson Auto Parts say they are enhancing the proud Australian company’s commitment to automotive repairers nationwide with this new Roadsafe product range.
