Shock Absorbers

Get the Best Shock Absorbers in the Market Today

A vehicle’s suspension system is made up of two parts: a shock absorber or the damper and the spring. The shock absorber or the damper is a mechanical device that absorbs and damp shock impulses, preventing the vehicle to bounce up and down. The spring allows the wheels of the vehicle to minimise jolting and makes the passenger’s experience pleasant. The suspension system affects the driver’s control and the comfort of the passengers. As such, it needs to meet high standards for optimum safety and smooth driving.

KYB Shock Absorbers

KYB Corporation is one of the largest worldwide manufacturers of shock absorbers for original equipment supplying around 50 million shocks every year to the world leading vehicle manufacturers. 1 in 4 of the worlds cars and light commercial vehicles leaving the production line are fitted with KYB shock absorbers as original equipment.

KYB Corporation also manufacture many other hydraulic products as original equipment, including aircraft components, special purpose vehicles, marine equipment, and original equipment motorcycle shocks and front forks.

High level technology, manufacturing and product quality corresponding with a superb aftermarket engagement guarantee excellent shock absorbers. The range offers oil and gas shock absorbers, and a range of high pressure mono tubes – the best for more demanding driving.

KYB Shock Absorbers

PREMIUM SHOCK ABSORBERS

Because it is factory assembled and factory exact, your customers can expect its built-in performance features to consistently deliver better-than-new road control and riding comfort. Premium is specially designed to compensate for the accumulated wear and tear on other parts of the suspension system. So it will provide a better ride and better steering.

Premium Shock Absorbers

EXCEL-G SHOCK ABSORBERS

Patented valving plus pressurised nitrogen gas account for riding comfort and, at the same time, dramatically reduce the aeration or foaming that commonly occur in shock absorber and cause its performance to start fading, even after only a few minutes in operation. Preferable for the customers who want to feel the difference.

GAS-A-JUST SHOCK ABSORBERS

The KYB twin tube gas-filled shock absorber:

Because these top quality, automatically adjusting, double- action shock absorbers are relatively new, you’ll find the following helpful in selling customers. The basic secret’s the combination of highly pressurised N2 and an all-weather fluid, which helps minimise bounce and sway to deliver more comfortable rides. Less bounce and sway improves steering cornering. In addition, top road contact means less wear on parts, tires. These features magnify in importance for vehicles with radial tires or those driven extensively, for sports car and performance buffs.

The AGX high performance, adjustable, shock absorbers:

KYB AGX Adjustable Gas Shocks allow drivers to adjust damping to match specific driving conditions.

SKORCHED 4’S

Shock Absorbers for off-road driving:

You can’t get the best from any shocks unless they are matched to the springs. To optimize the entire suspension package KYB has matched the Skorched4’s industry leaders King Springs’ range of coil and leaf springs, resulting in Skorched 4’s having exactly the right rebound and compression ratios in both standard and 50 mm lifted form.

Skorched 4’s also have velocity-sensitive valving so they permit axle articulation as the vehicle eases over rocks at low speeds, yet harden up to provide a flatter stance around high-speed corners to combat body roll and nosedive under hard braking. There’s even a little extra articulation as the skorched 4’s are longer than the OEM shock absorbers.

Shock absorbers take a pounding as heavy 4WD travel for hours on corrugated outback track, often at high temperatures. Even though the occupants may barely feel the bumps the shocks are working overtime, and the means heat buildup that will see a sub-standard shock absorber quickly fade and become dangerous. KYB’s solution is a twin-tube design with a large-diameter 35 mm piston, which means a greater oil volume and a slower heat buildup.

But the robust design doesn’t end there. There’s also a desert-tough 16 mm hardened-chrome rod for superior side-loa strength, a four-step top seal to keep dirt out and the oil in, seamless cylinders and eye rings to eliminate weak points. In other words, this is one shock built to perform, and made to last.

How Do Shock Absorbers Work?

Shock absorbers play an important role in keeping your vehicle functioning smoothly as you drive. Basically, they are hydraulic pump-like devices that ensure that the tyres always remain in contract with the road surface. By using valves and orifices, they control the oil flow through what we refer to as piston. They were also designed to control the impact and movement of the spring and the suspension.

In essence, shock absorbers work with springs to reduce the effects of driving over rough roads.

When is it Time to Replace Your Shock Absorbers?

Just like any car part, shock absorbers deteriorate with wear and tear due to regular use. Before they lose their ability to function properly, you must know the when it is time to replace your shock absorbers. Here are a few of these signs:

  • You swerve when you brake.
  • Your vehicle rocks over uneven surfaces.
  • You have longer stopping distance.
  • You hear vibrations in your stirring wheel when you are driving.
  • You slide or veer across against mild winds.
  • Your tyres are have uneven wear.
