Inside Line: Corteco

by

Inside Line Ford Ka 1996 to 2009

Top struts perform several important roles, some of which are related to dampening noise and vibration control. As the aftermarket arm of one of the world’ leading OE manufacturer of vibration control products, Corteco has a number of answers to problems concerning component replacement on ageing Ford Ka models.

A key role of each top strut is to secure the suspension struts, or shock absrobers to the body shell. In doing so, they act as a conduit for the vibrations generated as the wheels travel over the bumpy and uneven road surface. Because the top strut design incorporates a vibration control dampening medium, this acts as a shield from these vibrations, so the driver experiences a much more comfortable ride.

Because the dampening medium is subject to wear, top struts will fail and Corteco has identified a number of components likely to require replacement. These include two top strut mounts (part numbers 21652920 and 80000493).

Corteco’s OE manufacturing connections mean that it is able to supply top struts with or without bearings, if appropriate.

An additional advantage is that Corteco will supply top struts as singles rather than pairs.
