Duralo is a company headquartered in San Diego that manufactures quality aftermarket shocks, struts, brakes, steering components and more. All Duralo struts and steering racks carry a limited lifetime warranty, while brake parts have a 1-year, unlimited mileage warranty (after all, brakes are a wear item). Duralo also offers upgraded versions of some of these parts that work even better than OEM.
The core of their business is complete strut assemblies. These are struts that have the springs and rubber mounts included and pre-assembled, for an easier and safer installation. With regular struts, you need to use a spring compressor to disassemble the original item and swap the springs and upper mounts over to the new one, which can be complicated and dangerous. Duralo complete strut assemblies have brand new springs and mounts already included and installed at the factory, so you can bypass that step. This also addresses any potentially sagging springs, or dried and cracked rubber in the upper mounts.
Duralo is also a large manufacturer of disc brake rotors and pads. Their ceramic brake pads have chamfered edges and include all the shims and grease required for installation, so they are virtually noise free, and the ceramic blend makes lest dust than traditional metallic pads. Their brake rotors are cross drilled for better cooling, so they don't warp as much, and slotted to keep the pad surface from scorching. The zinc coating applied at the factory helps resist corrosion and keeps noise down as well.
Duralo also offers both brand new and quality remanufactured steering racks, all of which are backed by the same limited lifetime warranty. This is acually where their business began over 25 years ago, and even the remanufactured items (professionally reconditioned in the US as well) have a fresh coat of paint so you cannot tell the difference.
The parts Duralo makes are probably the most relevant to your safety; if your engine quits while driving, you can likely make your way to the side of the road. If you lose your steering or brakes while driving, it's a moment of crisis you won't forget. Is that really an area of your car where you want to cut your costs?
