Test for the Best.
The Apec Steering and Suspension range achieves excellence by testing all our parts against peak performance parameters. Whether that part is a ball joint or a wishbone, our manufacturing and quality assurance teams take precautions to ensure that we pack every Apec-branded box with unbeatable product reliability.
All our exposed steering and suspension parts are cataphoresis coated through an eco-friendly dipping process and tested using extreme temperatures that range from depths of -40°C to highs exceeding 120°C to assess durability against the direst environmental conditions. With an added 900 hours of salt spray testing, we instil each finished part with a 10-year anti-corrosion guarantee for quality that aligns with real-world conditions.
In addition to cataphoresis coating and testing, Apec Steering and Suspension parts are produced and evaluated using the following methods:
- 1,000,000 Life Cycle Testing
- Fatigue and Wear Testing
- Rotational Torque Testing
