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.

Is the hardware ( nuts and bolts ) included?
Ross R on Apr 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The only hardware included are for the front upper portion for the shocks. This includes the rubber damper bushings, metal washers and 1 nut per shock. You will need to reuse the lower bolts and all hardware for the rear shocks.
Are these compatible with a rear wheel drive 99 Ford Explorer?
Chris W on Apr 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: For the 99 this will fit the 4wd and the AWD without adjustable suspension, not the 2wd.

The 2wd we do carry and it will work again as long as you do not have adjustable suspension.
