LAS VEGAS, Jan. 22, 2013

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Meritor North American Aftermarket
business, based in Florence, Ky., has announced the immediate availability of
a Meritor-brand shock absorber product line. This new line replaces the
Gabriel shocks previously sold by the company and is available immediately to
all North American warehouse distributors and OEM dealers.

Announced here during Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week, the new Meritor shock
absorbers – American-made in an ISO-certified facility -- are available in
three models: cab shocks, standard duty shocks and premium adjustable shocks.

These are the first members of Meritor's new AllFit series, that address the
all-makes market segment demanded by fleets, owner-operators and installers
for quality, all-makes shock absorbers.

"These shocks reconcile perfectly with the diverse application and performance
demands of the heavy duty aftermarket," said Tim Bauer, director,
Undercarriage Products. "We understand our customers want choices, so we've
made this first move to offer this broad grouping of all-makes parts under a
Meritor brand. Truck operators can enjoy the benefits of a complete shock
absorber from a trusted supplier while our customers can streamline inventory
and enhance the operator's loyalty regardless of a fleet's brand
composition.The all-makes difference is in the bottom line."

The new shocks – ideal for Class 6-8 linehaul trucks, trailers and key
vocational segments like fire and rescue, delivery vehicles, school buses, and
municipal vehicles – provide an advanced sealing system, premium hydraulic
fluid, and a robust design to reduce excessive misting and extend product

The three product classes are:

  oCab shock: designed to isolate the cab from the vehicle's frame maximizing
    ride comfort.
  oStandard-Duty: manufactured with premium components to help ensure
    longevity on the road.
  oPremium Adjustable: can be converted to three settings...regular, firm or
    extra firm to support a variety of ride preferences.

"These shocks will provide superior ride comfort, all for greater operational
control of the vehicle and minimize road vibration," said Bauer. "Shock
absorbers play an important role in this equation by supporting greater
control and maximizing protection for the driver and cargo."
