The shifter module must be strong and stiff enough to support the forces required to engage the transmission. Since the levers must move across the module and have built-in detent features, the material used must have good lubricity and wear resistance.
Ascend's Vydyne R533H is ideal for the module base and lower transfer case lever application because of its balance of strength, stiffness, and the wear properties needed to work with moving levers. Vydyne R543H is used in the transmission selector lever to provide the extra strength needed for engagement.
The Ascend automotive team relies on years of experience to create optimal parts for Ford,® as well as for General Motors® and Chrysler.®
