Our direct fit gas-charged shock absorbers help to restore your vehicle’s handling and ride quality to just like new.

Direct Fit

Direct fit replacement; not only will the part fit correctly, but it will function correctly.  Many competitors combine applications to cut down on the amount of parts they have to carry. This can result in the following issues: incorrect vehicle height, poor response and an uncomfortable ride.

Rigorously Tested

Rigorously tested and made from higher quality materials than the competition. Our parts are built to have a longer life in any environment or road conditions.

Matched Parts

When you buy the kit pre-built by us, you can be sure that the parts are matched for optimum performance.  Not all shocks and struts are manufactured the same, so mixing and matching can result in fit issues and potentially decrease the life of the parts.

Saves Time & Money

When you buy one of our kits, you not only save money over buying the parts individually, but you also save time having to search for all of the different parts that are correct for your vehicle (because we did it for you!)

Lifetime Warranty

This item is backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty. In the event this item should fail due to manufacturing defects during intended use, we will exchange the part free of charge (excludes shipping charges) for the original purchaser. Please keep your invoice for proof of this warranty.

So Far So Good
Ordered this along with the front suspension kit offered. Been on the vehicle over a week and no issues. Leacree brand shocks, which are Japanese aftermarket parts. Smooth installation. I would recommend this product.
