Built to withstand the hardest, harshest working conditions.
In an industry where only the strong survive, your fleet needs the kind of performance and durability that never stops flexing its muscle. Gabriel® is the only aftermarket manufacturer to use a super-finished chromed piston rod in every shock and strut we make, not just the premium ones. Our super-finished chromed piston rods offer the best defense against corrosion.3 By delivering the ideal amount of oil to the seal, they reduce wear and tear on the seal, minimize chances of leaks, and extend the life of your shocks so they keep working long after the job is done.
With over a century of engineering expertise coupled with the rugged reliability of Gabriel chrome, you can be confident our HD shocks have the brains and brawn to power their way through the harshest conditions.
