Sidem mounting tools

Sidem does not only offers an extensive range of steering and suspension parts, but also a range of mounting tools.

We have mounting tools for ball joints. Our mounting tools are an aid to fasten ball joints in a steering knuckle or an arm. You can do this by squeezing, screwing or, in certain cases, knocking.

Not every brand has the same ball joints, that’s why different brands require different mounting tools. Sidem knows this and that’s why the company offers a whole range of specific mounting tools for specific brands.

With our mounting tools we try to make the life of the mechanics easier. At Sidem you can not only get your steering and suspension parts but also the mounting tools to install them easier.

New mounting tools: set jam nuts

We have a new addition to our mounting tools range: sets of jam nuts.

Jam nuts are used on the tie rods to prevent the tie rod ends from loosening due to vibration. We created an easy to carry box with all common jam nuts, this is to ensure a clever repair.

A part of Sidem completes the repair

SIDEM has the widest range in complete sets in the market of Steering and Suspension parts. With the highest availability of sets and a constant urge to expand it, SIDEM becomes an indispensable partner.

Our many years in the business has given us the advantage to manufacture sets that meet customer requirements, achieving quicker repair times and satisfied drivers.

27-05-13 >>Lisez plus

Whatever your choice is, just know Sidem is the right one.

For several Audi models Sidem offers a quite impressive selection of sets.
You always can choose for a set of Track Control Arms accompanied by Mounting Material.
If you want Stabiliser links joined to the set, that’s no problem. We even offer a set where the Tie Rod Ends are included.

To keep it simple we use the following logic:
OE-number + S1 = SET of Track Control Arms + Mounting Material
OE-number + S2 = SET of Track Control Arms + Mounting Material + Stabiliser Links
OE-number + S3 = SET of Track Control Arms + Mounting Material + Stabiliser Links + Tie Rod Ends

For example sets for Audi A4 (8EC,8ED):
37072 = 8E0 407 693 AL = Part of SET
37878 = 8E0 407 693 AL S1 = SET of Track Control Arms + Mounting Material
37876 = 8E0 407 693 AL S2 = SET of Track Control Arms + Mounting Material + Stabiliser Links
37871 = 8E0 407 693 AL S3 = SET of TCA’s + Mounting Material + Stabiliser Links + Tie Rod Ends

As we know: The replacement of several parts at once gives us the advantage of better handling and shortens the repair time significantly.

Always be aware of this when comparing Sidem parts with others.
Sidem parts must comply to high quality standards and need to be as complete as possible.
We will offer a complete track control arm for each comparison number.

SIDEM keeps on Shining In Durability, Efficiency, Manufactur

We always try to serve our customers with complete parts.
Therefore the washers on axial joints are included according to the original part to complete the repair.
It’s an extra effort from us to manufacture, store and include in the package, but for you it guarantees an entire repair.

Sidem is constantly expanding its product range

When axial joints need to be replaced, the steering rack gaiter needs to be removed.
Manufactures often use clamps that can’t be reused afterwards or when they are damaged the steering rack gaiter isn’t secured properly anymore.
Dust or dirt is free to enter and damage the axial joint. The rubber of the gaiter can be worn or damaged, weak spots or cracks can occur.That’s why the steering rack gaiter often is replaced simultaneously with the axial joint. This may prevent a shortened lifetime of the axial joint and a longer repair time in a later stage. That’s why Sidem is expanding their range with Steering rack gaiters with metal clamps to complete the repair.

Set self locking nuts

We are constantly pushing to meet the needs of our customers, so we also have a set of self locking nuts available.
This can come in handy since a nyloc nut can only be used once because the nylon insert no longer performs its function to 100% of design. Therefore nyloc nuts should be replaced after each use or re-torque.

Since we are working with safety parts who encounter vibrations and movement,  it’s very important that the repair can be completed without fear of loosening nuts. The nylon is tightly wedged into the bolt threads and provides resistance to turning once tightened, this under nearly any condition.

So if during the repair of Sidem parts other nuts need to be removed or a part needs to be adjusted after wheel alignment, you can always rely on this set to achieve the required safety conditions.

Replacing parts in pairs

When working on steering and suspension, we notice that most parts have an equal on the opposite side. When a defective part is found, it is highly recommended to replace the same part on the other side as well to prevent a noticeable performance difference from side to side and to preserve your safety. This is necessary when replacing stabiliser mountings, stabiliser links, track control arms, silentblocks,…

It is not absolutely necessary to replace axial joints, tie rod ends, steering rack gaiters and ball joints in pairs, but many professional installers insist on replacing both even if only one is bad. This is because it is likely both parts will have covered the same distance and have the same amount of wear. This will ensure the entire steering and suspension system is functional and secure. It also saves the customer the inconvenience of having to bring his vehicle in a second time.

Any steering and suspension repairs should be followed by a quality four-wheel alignment at a reputable repair facility. This is due to the fact that you will be removing many different components and could possibly pull the alignment out causing tire wear or damage in the future.
