First Line’s on-going commitment to grow its product range and offer the parts that the independent trade really needs means that it will sometimes add the more humble part as well as the more interesting. Hub nuts may not set the heart racing, but for keeping motorists safe while driving, they are vital and the new range complements the existing range of bearing kits.
Although many of the hub nuts are already found in a number of its bearing kits, First Line has recognised that during some service and repair procedures, such as CV boot/joint replacement, the nuts need to be removed, which can cause them to be damaged and therefore they cannot be reused.
Also, as these products are safety critical items, on principle, First Line recommends that hub nuts are replaced as a matter of course whenever they are removed during any kind of workshop operation. Therefore, to avoid the inconvenience and cost of buying a bearing kit just to obtain the nut, the new range has been introduced.
The initial range of twenty-two hub nuts caters for the vast majority of the most popular applications and includes car, 4 x 4 and LCV vehicles.
