      The University of the Aftermarket Foundation (UAF) has introduced a new corporate-support aspect to its popular UAF Coffee Club recurring-donor program.
      Called the BARISTA level, the new donor program provides organizations with a pathway to join individual donors in “pouring it forward” to benefit of the automotive aftermarket through education.
      “We are excited to offer this unique new program to give aftermarket organizations a chance to ‘expresso’ their support and help provide scholarships and educational opportunities for the next generation of industry professionals,” said Mike Buzzard, UAF trustee and chairman of the UAF Coffee Club sub-committee.
      Organizations that donate a minimum of $3,600 to the UAF that is earmarked for the Coffee Club campaign will be recognized as BARISTA at the UAF Coffee Club event during AAPEX on signage, the UAF Website, UAF newsletter and other UAF communications. BARISTA donations apply toward Lifetime Trustee status.
      “BARISTA donors will join UAF Coffee Club members at a special networking event at AAPEX which has proven to provide a valuable venue and professional connection springboard for those new to aftermarket careers to interact with industry veterans,” said Buzzard.
      To learn more and become a BARISTA, contact UAF Executive Director Jennifer Tio at [email protected] For more information about the University of the Aftermarket Foundation and its available scholarships, or to make a donation, visit

      Plews & Edelmann has expanded to 53 exclusive, new power-steering hard-parts SKUs within its fast-growing Edelmann Elite line.
      These parts, which include 41 rack and pinions, 10 power-steering pumps and two power-steering gearboxes, are only available as new parts from Plews & Edelmann and provide added coverage for more than 27 million VIO.
      “Even before the addition of these exclusive part numbers, the Edelmann Elite hard-parts line exceeded competitors’ coverage from each competitor supplying new steering parts,” said Evan Bauer, Plews & Edelmann director of business development. “However, we recognized that coverage gaps still existed and set out to fill those gaps with parts only available from Plews & Edelmann regardless of competitor. The SKUs that were identified include remanufactured units that have notoriously high warranty rates across all three categories (pumps, racks and gears). A rack for a 2017 Chevy Traverse is a perfect example with the reman equivalent running an alleged warranty rate around 15%. Our alleged warranty rate of 2.8% is evidence of the need for different thinking in this category. These new parts have truly put more distance between Plews & Edelmann and our competitors in terms of power-steering hard-parts coverage.”
      The Edelmann Elite line has grown to 298 SKUs that meet over 80% of customer demand and deliver application coverage for more than 260 million VIO. Every new rack and pinion, power-steering pump and power-steering gearbox is designed, developed and built as a brand-new part by Plews & Edelmann, utilizing key reverse-engineering competencies to overcome design flaws. No used or remanufactured components are employed. All of the parts are 100% tested and backed by a 100-year/1 million-mile warranty.

      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.

      Hi i have a 2006 g35x that i just got. i put sport pads in the front becuase i used them on my old car and loved the extra power that they gave me. i need new rear pads too, my question is will putting sport pads in the rear mess up my car's handling or braking? like it won't mess with the brake bias, the system that alters brake pressure to each wheel, make my car more likely to fishtail or anything like that when i hit the brakes in a corner right? it'll just give me more stopping power? i'm thinking this as all the companies sell sport pads for rear too. anyone here done this before? any tips? thanks.
