Litens Aftermarket has just launched its new

, and the company says it is prepared to “continue as the largest supplier delivering the highest quality of power transmission products.”

“With this updated website, our current and future marketplace partners will have a better experience and are going to find it easier to locate valuable information such as our parts catalog, new-number announcements, what’s new at Litens and much more,” said John Lussier, president of Tendeco.

Litens’ technology is applied globally to more than half of the vehicles on the road today, working to reduce emissions, while improving fuel economy, performance and passenger experience, according to the company. “So, it is only right for our website to reflect our capabilities in full capacity, while acting as a hub of resources and benefits to our customers,” the company added.

“This new website emphasizes how important the use of OE quality in the aftermarket is,” said Damien Gabel, managing director, ATech. “Low-tensioning devices, overrunning alternator decouplers (OADs), BASFiltr and TorqFiltr and mid-hybrid tensioners are largely participating in the global CO2 reduction. We hope that this new website will provide clarity to the replacement market, in regard to the latest technology used in current cars.”

What’s New?

Not only is the new website easy to navigate, but it also was primarily built by keeping the company’s consumer needs in mind. The site has a direct link that can guide users to Litens’ online store, where customers can find products through associated VIN, make, model, year or engine, for a quick and direct purchasing process.

“As our new website features are premised on convenience, we hope to configure a user-friendly experience for our clients and partners through,” said Lussier.

Features include:

  • Showcasing frequently updated new-product releases
  • Sharing a platform filled with engaging news stories
  • Providing contact information so anyone can reach Litens Aftermarket without difficulty
  • Exhibiting an all-encompassing high-performance line

“To help save time, effort and energy, we have crafted our new website’s ‘Download’ section, which is a source of trustworthy information on our products and their respective descriptions,” said Lussier. “Here, our channel audience can also access installation sheets that will simplify and support the installation process.”

      I swore for years that I would never buy a brand-new car. I didn’t even want to make a car payment. You see, I’ve always owned cheap (read “broken”) cars. The way I see it, you either make a monthly payment to the bank, or to the parts store. Since I’ve been working on cars for most of my adult life, it made more sense to keep driving cheap cars and doing the work myself.
      That all changed when my 2003 Nissan Altima left me stranded on the side of the highway on my way to pick up my daughter from daycare. I was so thankful she wasn’t in the car with me yet; it was icy, snowy and just downright dangerous.
      I started looking for a new (to me) car that night. I couldn’t justify driving half-busted cars any longer, and I certainly didn’t want to put my then-3-year-old daughter in danger.
      Thanks, COVID …
      Fast forward a month or two, and it’s March 2020. Ohio shuts down, and there’s a lot of uncertainty. I was still searching for a newer car to buy at this point, and I was leaning toward a gently used VW Golf Alltrack. Then, in April 2020, VW offered 0% financing on its new cars.
      When I did the math, the payment on a new one was the same as the payment on a used one. So, I hurried up and scooped up a brand-new 2019 Alltrack, and it’s been my primary vehicle ever since. Mind you, this is the first nice car I’ve ever owned, and I was pretty excited to drive something that was still covered under warranty. But my inner car guy has a lot of influence, and before long I started to make some upgrades.
      Upgrades
      It started out slow. First, a set of WeatherTech floor mats. Then, I picked up some protective film for the headlights, taillights and fog lights. Next, I bought an auto-dimming rearview mirror with built-in HomeLink garage-door-opener functionality. I bought an entire arsenal of car-cleaning products, from microfiber towels to a DIY ceramic coating kit. This was the first nice vehicle I’d ever owned, and I wanted to protect my investment!
      Then the “real” upgrades started. Bigger front and rear sway bars helped to keep the body roll in check, and completely transformed the way the car drove around a corner. Aluminum skid plates underneath for added protection from whatever the roads in Ohio could throw at me. A set of projector headlights with HID lighting gave me unparalleled nighttime visibility. Then, I got the opportunity to test out a prototype 1.25-inch lift kit. Sure, it’s not much, but a touch of added ground clearance is always nice. It also brings the car up to the height that it should have been from the factory, in my opinion at least.
      The truth is, I simply can’t leave a vehicle alone. I have to make it my own, one way or another. But I enjoy the process, and it’s satisfying to watch it slowly evolve into exactly what I want it to be. I share this to help you get inside the minds of some of your more passionate DIY customers.
      Growing Opportunity
      I can’t help but look for things to change, upgrade or improve whenever I buy a vehicle. Doing this might not make sense to everyone, but it’s how I make my vehicles better for me. However, I suspect that I’m not alone in this mindset.
      With new-vehicle prices skyrocketing, it makes sense that someone might choose to repair or upgrade their current vehicle instead of trading it in for something else. And that’s a huge opportunity for the automotive aftermarket.
      According to the 2022 SEMA Market Report, U.S. consumers spent a whopping $50.9 billion on accessorizing and modifying their vehicles last year – an all-time high for specialty-equipment sales. Trucks are a major driving force behind this sales trend, accounting for nearly one-third of those sales.
      Considering that the Ford F-150 has been the best-selling vehicle in the United States for many years – and the top three best-selling vehicles in 2021 were pickup trucks – this should come as no surprise. According to the SEMA report, sales of “utility accessories” such as truck bedliners, truck caps, racks, truck-bed covers and trailer and towing products are expected to grow from $3.79 billion in 2021 to $3.87 billion this year. If you’re not stocking truck accessories, you might want to give this category another look.
      Here’s the bottom line: Every time somebody buys a new or used vehicle, there’s an opportunity for us as counter pros to help them find the accessories they need. The question is, what are you doing to capitalize on this exciting category?

      Rislone has introduced new High Mileage Power Steering Stop Whine with Leak Repair (P/N 4604), describing it as “a quick and dependable solution for customers suffering steering ‘whine,’ sluggish steering or a power-steering system leak in their high-mileage cars, SUVs and light trucks.” 
      Power-steering problems are common in older vehicles, especially those clocking 75,000 miles or more. Noise and whining, minor leaks and hard-steering complaints can dull your customers’ driving enjoyment and, if ignored, only get worse over time. 
      “High Mileage Power Steering Stop Whine with Leak Repair can cost-effectively and quickly solve a range of power-steering issues,” said Clay Parks, Rislone vice president of strategic development. “It’s an affordable solution to noisy power-steering systems that generally occur when the system is low on fluid, there is air trapped in the fluid or the vehicle has some mechanical issues.”
      The all-new product contains a special blend of viscosity improvers, anti-wear friction modifiers and extreme-pressure performance additives, according to the company. It’s formulated to stop bearing, piston and valve noises inside the power-steering pump. Special lubricity additives smooth out rough, hard and tight steering and reduce friction. Stop-leak additives repair minor leaks and help prevent new ones. 
      Customers can use the product to top off existing fluid when low or add a bottle as a preventive-maintenance measure whenever power steering fluid is changed. It’s compatible with all types of domestic and imported power-steering fluids, including petroleum and synthetic formulas, and works with systems that use ATF automatic-transmission fluid. 
      Most passenger cars and light trucks require one 11.8-ounce (350-millileter) bottle for every 1 to 3 quarts of power-steering fluid. In smaller systems (those under a quart of capacity), use half a bottle. Depending on the power-steering problem, results will either be immediate or noticeable within a few days of driving, according to the company. A second application may be needed for hard-to-stop leaks or to solve other system issues.
      Rislone High Mileage Power Steering Stop Whine with Leak Repair is a sister product to Rislone High Mileage Transmission Stop Slip with Leak Repair (P/N 4502) for automatic and manual transmissions.
