Dorman releases 279 new repair parts and components

Dec. 12, 2022
The automotive and heavy-duty parts supplier recently released several new products before the year's end.

Dorman Products has introduced 279 new light-, medium-, and heavy-duty vehicle repair parts and components. Of these parts, 135 are first-to-the-aftermarket repair products.

This includes an OE FIX coolant sensor for Mack refuse trucks (924-5516XD). The original equipment coolant level sensor on certain Macks may provide inaccurate data that sends the engine into limp mode, causing costly vehicle downtime. This OE FIX solution more consistently and accurately monitors coolant levels by using a magnetic float with a larger swept area and a stainless steel shaft potted with epoxy, helping drivers and fleet managers keep trucks running longer.

Other new solutions this month include 20 new upgraded coil springs designed to provide a 35-70% increase in load handling capacity, custom-engineered to improve ride quality, reduce driver fatigue, and improve handling on many pickup trucks, SUVs, RVs, plow trucks, vans and more.

Dorman also released a new air suspension upfit kit for 2009 to 2014 Ford F-150s (949-044), an add-on solution designed to help compensate for a sagging suspension by providing additional support to maintain factory-like ride height and handling. The patent-pending solution includes air springs that feature a fail-safe design that includes a more substantial internal coil spring, and the kit includes all the components required for a complete, straightforward installation with no drilling, welding, or special tools required.
