Heavy-Duty Difference

Gabriel Heavy-Duty - Proven

Experience + Coverage + Durability = Proven Results

No one understands ride control like Gabriel®. In 1907, we created an entire industry around it. And since we’ve been manufacturing and supplying shocks to the heavy-duty industry for over 50 years, we know what’s durable and what’s not. Our HD product designs don’t just look good on paper; they’ve been proven on and off pavement for five decades, time-tested and improved based on real-world use and the increasing demands of fleet operators. So, you can be confident they’ll perform as expected – mile after mile, job after job.

We’ve got you covered.

Today, more than ever, installers, fleet managers and operators rely on Gabriel’s HD technology to get the job done because our Truck, Trailer and Bus shocks’ coverage is unmatched in the HD aftermarket industry. Our extensive FleetLine® and GasSLX® product lines cover more than 3,000 OE part numbers and more than 2,000 competitors’ aftermarket part numbers. This exceeds Gabriel’s nearest competitors’ listed offerings by more than 50 percent in total. But, we don’t just manufacture heavy-duty shocks and struts. We design and build a broader line of proven, hardworking and durable shocks and struts than anyone else in the world.
