MONROE® CONTINUE EXPANSION OF MAX-LIFT RANGE

Monroe® continue to expand their already extensive range of Monroe® Max-Lift gas charged lift supports, with their full range of 117 Max-Lifts now covering over 93% of the cars on Australian roads. After adding 26 new Max-Lifts in '99, Monroe® have over 30 new Max-Lifts scheduled for release during 2000, helping to ensure distributors and installers can cater for every motorist's needs.

Monroe® Ride Control Product Manager, Mr. Peter Goodrich said, "Monroe® Max-Lift sales have continued to grow year to year, and are an increasingly important part of our pro duct range. With Max-Lifts now available for over 93% of the cars on Australian roads, and our development schedule to cover many more applications this year, distributors and installers certainly have the range and opportunity to make some valuable add-on sales."

Monroe® Max-Lift is the market's premium replacement product and is manufactured to the highest quality, design and durability standards. Max-Lifts have a superior piston rod finish (coated in a salt nitride process for exceptional corrosion resistance) and a Teflon piston seal for superior sealing strength and durability. To ensure a smooth lifting action, the gas chamber is filled with a high pressure, inert gas to provide lifting force and oil to control the rate of lift.

Max-Lifts also feature the required electrical fittings for connecting hatchback accessories when necessary.
