Press Release

Newly introduced products include ride control technology for a range of makes and models, including Ford, Peterbilt, Freightliner, and more

Farmington Hills, Mich. – Gabriel® (Ride Control, LLC), the inventor and industry leader in automotive ride control technology, announces that it has introduced new Fleetline® ride control products for a wide range of heavy-duty vehicle makes and models, including Ford, Peterbilt, Freightliner and more. In total, Gabriel is announcing sixteen New Product Introductions, including multiple that are first-to-market.

FleetLine shocks are designed as a direct replacement for commercial OE shocks, and are built to meet or exceed OE specifications and quality standards. They feature valving rates that compensate for initial truck suspension softening to deliver top performance, as well as a pre-loaded piston ring that compensates for wear.

The recently updated FleetLine product line will soon feature an improved anti-corrosion coating and a drastically improved misting reduction seal, thereby reducing maintenance downtime and extending service life. With Gabriel’s improved misting reduction seal technology, oil loss will be reduced by 70% over time, leading to improved performance as compared to competing technologies.
