Reconditioning OE products saves time, non-renewable resources, and energy. All reconditioned bumper covers and wheels are part of our Keystone Platinum Plus line.
Reconditioned Bumper Covers
LKQ’s reconditioning process and professionally trained technicians bring these original equipment parts back to like-new quality, guaranteeing you a cost-effective repair, every time.
A repair technician performs a complete repair process, following the bumper through the entire process to its final primer coat.
Thermal Reforming: High temperature soak tanks chemically, clean the bumpers, and return them to their original molded shapes.
Preparation: Bumpers are then stripped from the clear coat or any non-flexible paint to ensure that all primers and paints will adhere properly.
Plastic Welding: Double-sided airless plastic welding is performed after any tears in the bumper are stabilized with a specialized tape.
Sanding and Filling: Once the structural repairs are completed, a flexible epoxy is applied to create a level surface. The bumper is sanded with progressively finer grits until a smooth, scratch-free surface is achieved.
Final Primer: The technician performs one last detailed inspection of the bumper cover after a final sanding and application of black or grey coating which serves as a primer coat for color bumpers or as a finished coat for black bumpers.
Our rebuilding process includes:
Units completely disassembled and cleaned
New or rebuilt backing plates and axle shafts installed
Units are filled with oil and friction modifier (where required)
New “OE” grade bearings and seals, and 100% rebuilt full floating hubs
Axles shafts and housings checked for straightness
1 ton dually axles come complete with machined rotors and hubs
LKQ rebuilt differentials come with a standard 12-month parts and labor warranty.
Our professionally trained technicians completely remanufacture each engine back to original specifications.
Engine pressure is tested after assembly to assure water jacket integrity
Spin tested after assembly to assure compression, oil flow, oil pressure, and real main seal
Cranks turned on state of the art equipment and micro-polished to OE "roughness" spec
New pistons, rings, bearings, gaskets, timing chain or belt, valves, valve springs, and freeze plugs are added
Heads resurfaced, valve seats re-cut, vacuum tested after assembly, and pressure tested as an individual casting
Blocks bored, align honed, and cylinder honed with computerized equipment for perfect finish size and taper
Most engines are shipped as “long block” assemblies and include a new water pump and gasket set.
Our transmissions have been fully remanufactured back to original specifications by professionally trained technicians.
Transmission dyno tested to verify shift points, RPM, pressure, ratio and shift time to the millisecond
Torque converter included
Solenoids tested before units are assembled
Gaskets, seals, bands clutch plates replaced with new
Completed valve bodies pressure tested to assure proper function
All of LKQ’s reconditioned wheels are original equipment parts that have been returned to like-new quality by our professionally trained technicians. Our exclusive process repairs damage caused by rock chips, road salt, minor impacts, and ultra violet rays.
Intensive testing to ensure like-new quality
Cost savings over new replacement wheels
