Installing a link stabilizer wouldn't be complete without these final checks. See the four things we do before handing the vehicle back to the customer.
How to replace the front lower arms on a Tesla Model S
Our Delphi experts share their guidance on how to replace the front lower arms on a Tesla Model S and how to avoid common pitfalls when it comes to suspension maintenance.
What is suspension?
Suspension is the term given to the system of springs, shock absorbers and linkages that connects a vehicle to its wheels and allows relative motion between the two. Suspension systems serve a dual purpose...
Steering & Suspension Quality Test Results
As part of its commitment to maintaining OE integrity on every one of its parts, Delphi recently conducted quality test results on its steering and suspension parts together against original equipment and key European competitor parts. Measuring for torque, movement, durability and strength integrity, tests were performed on ball joints and link stabilizers with Delphi matching or remaining within tolerance of OE specifications, while competitor results varied.
How to diagnose a shaking steering wheel
Here we provide an insight into the main causes, symptoms and fixes to help you streamline your repair work.
Understanding suspension bushes
Bushes play a pivotal role in the steering and suspension set-up of modern vehicles, allowing the suspension parts to move freely, whilst at the same time, absorbing noise, shocks and vibration.

How to train without leaving the workshop
Automotive technicians need to stay up to date with the latest technologies and techniques to provide the best service for customers. But sometimes the vehicle repairs you’re currently working on can’t afford to wait months for your next official course.
How to disconnect the high voltage power in an EV
Performing any maintenance on a high-voltage system can be extremely hazardous, so it’s important to have the right training and follow the proper safety procedures.

Designed to reduce vibrations and structure-borne noise, rubber-to-metal plays an important role in the steering and suspension set-up of modern vehicles. Thanks to their good damping properties and excellent load carrying capabilities, Delphi rubber-to-metal components absorb unwanted vibrations and sound, providing a comfortable and quiet ride, as well as improving vehicle stability and safety.
Control Arms and Wishbones
Connecting the spindle, hub or knuckle and wheel to the vehicle’s chassis, the control arm or wishbone - depending on the type of suspension - is a critical part of any vehicle’s steering and suspension system. Also known as an A arm, it allows the wheels to move up and down, while preventing forward and rearward movement and maintaining directional input from the driver. So, when the steering wheel is turned, the wheels follow suit. That’s pretty important, so you’ll want to fit a quality steering brand that always performs to the same standard as OE. Just like Delphi.
Top strut mounts
Designed to mount the top of the strut to the vehicle chassis, the aptly named top strut mount dampens noise and vibration, whist also acting as a steering pivot for a smooth and responsive ride. Featuring the same superior damping properties and load carrying capabilities, as the rest of our rubber-to-metal range, Delphi’s top strut mounts deliver a quiet, comfortable and critically safe ride.
A safety-critical part, the ball joint acts as a Block 1 pivot between the wheels and suspension, allowing the vehicle to be steered, whilst also ensuring a comfortable ride. Since it constantly pivots through multiple planes and angles, it is subject to significant stress and wear. So, you’ll want to fit a high-quality ball joint that has been designed, engineered and manufactured to the same standards as OE.
A link stabilizer, otherwise known as a sway bar, anti-roll bar or even stabilizer link, connects the vehicles left and right wheels through short links, reducing body roll whilst cornering, and absorbing shocks from potholes and uneven road surfaces. Fitting a strong, durable part is therefore a must. With an enlarged ball bin made from surface-hardened steel, a top-grade rubber boot and a high-performance grease, Delphi link stabilizers deliver a safe and comfortable ride, time and time again.
