SCHAEFFLER AUSTRALIA’S FAG CHASSIS RANGE

Backed by more than 130 years of chassis expertise

Schaeffler says its FAG product range offers high quality components and repair solutions for suspension and steering, drive shafts, strut mountings and wheel bearings for the automotive aftermarket.
Since 1883, Schaeffler has been developing and producing components and advanced chassis modules for original equipment manufacturers under its FAG brand.
As a development partner of leading automotive manufacturers, Schaeffler says it works to develop technical innovations that keep vehicles safe on the road and help to improve fuel consumption and reduce exhaust emissions.
The chassis is constantly subjected to strong dynamic forces and different road conditions. Other factors also influence the chassis like ozone, dirt, water, salt, and gravel which can accelerate the wear of parts and reduce their durability.
For these reasons, Schaeffler says it considers the whole chassis system during product development, focusing on quality in both the design and production of components.
Whether individual components or complete repair solutions, Schaeffler says FAG products deliver high quality and performance necessary for steering parts, driveshaft components, vehicle damping and wheel bearings to improve driving safety and driving dynamics.
Schaeffler states FAG offers a wide range of chassis products made with the latest materials and with market leading manufacturing technology. Modern sealing concepts and coating processes protect components from corrosion increasing their performance, durability and efficiency.

High-quality chassis components and repair solutions
The FAG range also includes steering and suspension parts, drive shafts and strut mountings for chassis repairs.
Products include control arms, tie rods, stabilisers, supporting and guide joints, and axial joint kits. Every part is developed, tested and approved by Schaeffler engineers in line with Schaeffler quality standards.
To ensure driving safety, chassis repairs must be carried out correctly with high quality parts. To make repair work easier and to save time for mechanics in sourcing and ordering quality parts, FAG repair solutions contain all the necessary components as well as all required accessories, such as nuts and bolts – all in the same Schaeffler quality. Repair solutions also include any information required about special tools that may be needed for the specific repair work.
Wheel Bearings
Under the FAG brand, Schaeffler says it offers everything for the easy replacement of wheel bearings including high-precision and reliable wheel bearings and complex bearing modules from the FAG WheelSet for replacing the wheel bearings at both ends of a single axle; to wheel bearing repair solutions for light commercial vehicles, and pre-assembled wheel bearing units for heavy commercial vehicles like the FAG Repair Insert Unit (RIU) and FAG SmartSET. Globally, Schaeffler says it produces over 42 million wheel bearings to the highest quality every year.
