Well Joe, if you'll ever be in Victorville, I'll buy you a beer, or other cold beverage of your choice. ;)

I recognize a couple of those suppliers as using our industrial ovens that I design to manufacture their products. It's interesting how this stuff comes full circle. :)

The rear side shafts is of particular note. GKN is a solid company. They make the key AWD bits for the Ford Focus RS, Range Rover Evoque and are one the leading edge AWDrivetrain firms on the planet. Their work in torque vectoring, and designing AWD with the ability to disconnect the rear drive shafts (For MPG) is netting them a lot of business right now. Many mfr's are turning to them as an AWD supplier of key system components.

Thanks, interesting info.
Conspicuous by its absence is the name of the airbag supplier.
ZF is the supplier of the "damping system". Does this refer to suspension dampers?
I knew Akebono manufactured OEM brake pads, but did not know they were an OEM supplier of calipers also.
