Lemforder, an automotive aftermarket/OEM brand of ZF, mainly manufactures steering system parts and chassis components. Its headquarters are based in Lemforde, Germany. Lemforder parts are available for a wide range of passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, trucks and buses. The line of parts manufactured by the brand includes stabilizer links, steering levers, tie rods, control arms and suspension joints. The company also manufactures 8-speed/9-speed automatic transmissions, 7-speed dual clutch manual transmissions, clutch systems and gear-shift systems as Original Equipment for a range of makes including Acura, Alfa Romeo, Bentley, BMW, General Motors, Honda, Subaru, Porsche and Mercedes-Benz.
Lemforder parts are built of highly-resistant, superior-quality materials to ensure a longer life and reliability. The stabilizer links, located between the stabilizer and the axle rod, are meant to decrease the body roll of the automobile while making sharp turns. To ensure optimal performance and resistance to normal wear and tear, the hybrid stabilizer links are made out of carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP), polyamides and high-strength steel. This reduces the weight of the stabilizer links, making them suitable for electric cars. The ball joints used in the stabilizer links ensure a noise-free, seamless, comfortable ride.
The steering lever is an integral component that transfers the motion of the steering wheel to the steering knuckles, thereby turning the wheels of the vehicle in the right direction. The steering lever is usually attached to the idler arm. These levers should be strong enough to transmit the movement from the steering wheel to the wheels. Lemforder produces steering levers for both passenger cars and light commercial automobiles.
Tie rods transfer the movement of the steering wheel to the wheels of the automobile. The tie rods should also be fitted in the right position to ensure proper wheel alignment. Lemforder's tie rods are engineered with high-precision equipment to ensure that they are straight and exactly fit the application. The brand's tie rods give your car an exact factory-fit wheel alignment. Control arms help drivers have a better control over the vehicle. Lemforder's control arms are available in steel and aluminum to fit various applications.
The company has developed a light-weight 4-point link in collaboration with MAN Nutzfahrzeuge AG. These links incorporate a revolutionary design that eliminates the need for wishbones, stabilizers and other chassis components. This reduces both installation and labor costs. One of the experimental products of the brand is the electronically-switchable engine mounts which are out-of-the-box over standard engine mounts. These engine mounts adjust to different levels of dampening, providing a smooth ride in various drive-modes. When the automobile is in neutral, the mount switches to the air suspension. On the other hand, when the vehicle is moving, the mount switches to the hydraulic suspension.
