TROY, Mich., Jan. 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Meritor, Inc. (NYSE: MTOR) today announced the launch of ReadySet™ No-Ream King Pin Kits on MeritorPartsXpress.com (MPX) to help customers more easily find a king pin kit for major axle applications.
"With this new launch supported by easier search functionality on MPX for king pins, we now offer a full portfolio covering multiple pin diameters and lengths for fleets requiring quick maintenance," said Joe Ghering, senior manager, steering and suspension for Meritor.
ReadySet with pre-sized bushings is ideal for linehaul, vocational, city delivery and bus applications. The kit is offered under the Meritor® aftermarket brand and fits a range of axle applications from Meritor®, Dana®, Eaton, Spicer®, and Ford®. The no-ream bushing is a cost-effective option that saves labor over conventional bushing kits that require reaming and is easily installed.
With the kit, king pin bushings do not need to be reamed after they are installed into the steering knuckle, which saves labor, time and equipment costs. Instead of pressing in the bushings, customers can use applicable bushing drivers for easy installation. With the addition of the ReadySet line to Meritor's king pin portfolio, Meritor now has a complete offering that meets multiple price point requirements and covers 95 percent of the market for ream and no-ream applications. ReadySet king pin kits are covered by Meritor's standard one-year aftermarket warranty and are backed by extensive customer support.
Meritor is making it easier for customers to identify and purchase king pins by adding Xact Search functionality to MPX. Previously, customers had to know which kit fit their application or would have to call Meritor for technical assistance. Now, customers can identify the right king pin by entering make, model, year and axle manufacturer into the search fields and will see all Meritor's kits with different bushing offerings for the axle regardless of original manufacturer.
