by | Dec 12, 2023 | 0 comments

Demonstrating its capabilities as a full systems aftermarket provider, ZF Aftermarket is launching 16 new part numbers for Continuous Damping Control (CDC) shock absorbers available for passenger vehicles in the U.S. and Canada. In addition, the company is expanding the range of TRW brake boosters and master cylinders originally launched at AAPEX 2023 in November. 

ZF Aftermarket is adding 16 new SACHS CDC part numbers in the US and Canadian (USC) region covering a variety of BMW 5, 6 and 7 models.

The company is planning to release additional CDC part numbers in the first quarter of 2024. The CDC electronic damper system has been in large-scale original equipment production since the mid-2000s and is offered for many vehicles, from luxury cars to SUVs to compact cars.

ZF has produced more than 34 million CDC dampers globally, setting the stage for growing demand in the aftermarket. 

SACHS CDC shocks for passenger cars provide perfect damping in any situation. State-of-the-art technology continually records variables that affect ride control, anticipating and adjusting the damping force to the external conditions.

The damping force varies depending on road conditions, payload weight and vehicle handling, providing better stability even in critical driving situations; reduced stopping distance; and damping force adjusted for each wheel – all for a safer and more comfortable ride. 

“We are very pleased to offer SACHS Continuous Damping Control shocks in the USC market and look forward to continuing to build out this product line, Likewise, we are expanding the availability of TRW braking products to provide our customers with even more ‘True Original’ parts,” said Mark Cali, Head of Independent Aftermarket, USC for ZF Aftermarket. 

ZF is adding 53 part numbers for TRW Brake Boosters, the most extensive line of new (not remanufactured) original equipment brake booster available for European cars in the USC independent aftermarket.

Manufactured by ZF and built on the heritage of TRW brake actuation systems, they extend the range of ZF brake boosters to a wide range European make vehicles in the USC market. 

ZF Aftermarket is also expanding its line of TRW Brake Master Cylinders manufactured in steel, aluminum or cast iron. The 69 new parts feature OE-specified rubber seals and dust caps to resist ageing and come with fitting accessories included. TRW Brake Master Cylinders also include a chrome 6-free ‘silver’ finish for steel and cast-iron models for a protective, durable and rust-resistant coating that is free of heavy metals.
