ArvinMeritor Showcases Modular Suspension Technologies During 2007 Vehicle Dynamics Expo

Development Contracts Awarded for Three Advanced Products

STUTTGART, Germany, May 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ArvinMeritor, Inc. (NYSE: ARM) today unveiled several new light vehicle modular suspension technologies developed by the company's Light Vehicle Systems (LVS) Chassis Systems business unit. Three of the advanced products have been awarded development contracts. Today's announcement was made from the company's exhibit booth at the 2007 Vehicle Dynamics Expo in Stuttgart.

"Our customers consistently tell us they need more performance flexibility from their ride and handling packages, and they need it without incurring costly model variations," said Ed Frutig, vice president and general manager of LVS Chassis Systems for ArvinMeritor. "ArvinMeritor's chassis system solutions are the direct result of listening to our customers. Our systems are scalable, yet modular in design and assembly, and they can be independent or combined into fully integrated chassis systems that deliver active vehicle stability and ride control."

    On display in the company's Vehicle Dynamics Expo booth are:
     -- ArvinMeritor's Active Air Suspension System: Currently under
        development on a European mid-size, performance sedan, the Active Air
        Suspension System provides continuously variable spring rate
        adjustment.  Test results verify that the system can create up to a
        3-to-1 spring rate change in under 100 milliseconds, providing low-
        frequency active body control for improved ride, handling and
        stability. The system uses many of the same components of a standard
        air suspension system. This provides modularity and scalability, which
        results in a high performance, cost effective solution built upon
        proven technology.
     -- ArvinMeritor's Adaptive Damping System: Currently under development on
        a European performance coupe, the Adaptive Damping System provides
        best-in-class performance at a competitive price. It has a wide force
        range, fast response time, the ability to shift on force, and
        frequency dependent damping capability. This is done with an electro-
        magnetically actuated combination spool and poppet valve "spoopet,"
        replacing a standard piston in either a monotube or twin-tube shock
        absorber. All damping is provided by the valve, which eliminates
        deflected disks and simplifies the OEM's tuning and development time.
        The simplicity of the valve and the flexibility in manufacturing give
        ArvinMeritor the ability to provide a high-performance, cost-effective
        solution.
     -- ArvinMeritor's Active Roll Control Stabilizer Bar System:  Currently
        under development on a North American luxury sedan, the Active Roll
        Control Stabilizer Bar System meets the requirements of multiple
        vehicles on a single platform. It is derived from a single, center-bar
        rotary actuator that can be connected to a servo pump to provide
        single-channel or dual-channel active roll control. This system is
        capable of independent control of front and rear roll rates, and has
        the ability to adjust roll couple distribution real-time.
     -- ArvinMeritor's Light-duty Axles: ArvinMeritor's newest chassis
        development product offers a three-axis hypoid gear design that
        improves noise, vibration and durability; precision-forged
        differential gears; torque fluctuation-based NVH end of line testing;
        and improved dynamic sealing solutions.
