It’s a fact of life – some vehicles work harder than others. That’s why Dorman offers three lines of chassis parts designed for specific uses and situations, so you know you’re getting the ideal replacement.
Dorman’s chassis parts are designed for a direct fit and long service life. From control arms to bushings, sway bars, tie rods, and ball joints, our chassis parts include premium features like sealed bearings, high-performance lubricants, corrosion-resistant finishes and new hardware.
For drivers who want their vehicle to handle like new again, our line of Premium ball joints, tie rod ends, stabilizer links, pitman arms and idler arms with XL technology meets and goes beyond the quality of original manufacturer components.
Our Premium chassis products with XL Technology feature ArmourGrade™ studs, an advanced low-friction polymer socket, and highly polished EverSmooth™ ball surfaces for precise handling. Premium I.C.E.™ grease in a sealed housing ensures an extended maintenance-free service life while our exclusive WeatherShield™ coating offers 5-10 times the corrosion resistance of OE finishes.
At Dorman Products, original equipment quality is just a starting point. From here we apply our own engineering protocols to determine if we can improve on the OE design. Drawing on our expertise in steering and suspension systems, we examine the variables that impact performance and longevity, and where possible we redesign and upgrade the part to increase efficiency and service life.
Our benchmark for engineering is a process we call ACE – Application Certified Engineering. Utilizing the ACE protocol, every premium part we develop is a unique project. Rather than simply reproduce a less-costly version of the original part, we make engineering, materials, and production decisions based on what will make each individual part stronger, more durable, and more efficient.
The quality of a part can’t always be determined by its appearance alone. Most generic parts may look the same on the surface, but the differences lie in the way they are manufactured and from what materials. Dorman employs stringent quality control at every step in the manufacturing process and throughout every product’s life cycle. From material hardness to yield strength testing, you can count on Dorman quality from start to finish.
As a market leader in product data, our catalog is error-free, guess-free, and user-friendly. Through proper consolidations, we offer more applications per SKU than any of our competitors, and we provide ourselves on being first to market with exclusive new applications. Dorman offers the most complete coverage in the industry.
Dorman Premium Chassis products deliver quality engineering, manufacturing and performance for every need, from daily driver to rugged duty, at a fraction of original equipment cost. We back it all up with the most comprehensive catalog in the Aftermarket. With coverage, quality, price and performance all from one source, there’s only one choice for all your chassis needs: check Dorman first.
People’s lives and livelihoods depend upon cars and trucks. Dorman gives people greater freedom to fix these vehicles by constantly developing new repair solutions that put owners and installers first.
Since 1918, we have been the automotive aftermarket’s pioneering problem solvers. We have released thousands of parts and components that people could once only buy from original equipment manufacturers. By always innovating, we have led the way in growing the aftermarket, providing more opportunity to individuals and businesses who depend on automotive maintenance. That’s why our catalog includes more than 80,000 products and grows every year.
What makes us distinct from other aftermarket companies is our customer-first mindset. Everything we do is centered around providing customer value, both in the quality of our products, and the creativity of our solutions. Our engineers and designers go out of their way to save repair technicians time, and save vehicle owners money.
The engine that powers us is our Culture of Contribution. We empower and celebrate new ideas throughout our organization, because that just means we have more ways to solve problems. Our family-run roots give us a spirit of entrepreneurship that accelerates our speed and agility. This is a rare combination in a fast-growing, global enterprise that makes Dorman a special place to work.
