This month’s new solutions include a strut and coil spring assembly for nearly 2 million General Motors vehicles with magnetic ride control front suspensions. This Dorman OE FIX loaded magnetic strut assembly (949-650) is designed to help professional automotive service technicians by pre-assembling all the necessary components needed to replace this part. This eliminates the need for a technician to have a spring compressor, which is required to properly assemble the individual components. This adds time and complexity to the repair. Dorman’s replacement includes everything from the shock absorber and coil spring to the dust boot and spring perch to simplify and speed up the job. And, because it features the same magnetorheological technology as the factory design, it fully restores functionality for like-new drive feel, according to Dorman. It even includes a protective cap to keep the harness connector safe during shipping.


Other highlights from this month’s new product announcement include:

  • An OE FIX engine coolant water outlet (902-302HP) for more than 270,000 Chrysler, Dodge and Mitsubishi vehicles that upgrades the factory plastic design to more durable aluminum to help prevent cracks and fluid leaks.
  • Nineteen new window regulator assemblies representing 26 million repair opportunities, covering multiple positions on a wide range of vehicles, including the front left and front right power window regulator assemblies (748-188 / 748-189) on 2013-2020 Ram trucks.
  • An aftermarket-exclusive engine air intake hose (696-029) to replace the original hose on select Ford Super Duty trucks that may be susceptible to failures.
