Gabriel Testing and Benchmark Testing Statement
Gabriel continuously strives to improve our products. We test our products in development stage and after production. As part of these efforts, Gabriel often performs benchmark testing of our products against certain competitors’ products. These Gabriel-conducted tests are proprietary and provide us with the ability to assure our customers that they have purchased high quality parts. The sharing of the test protocols and results are at Gabriel’s sole discretion.
Whatever the purpose, Gabriel makes reasonable efforts to ensure the accuracy and validity of our testing. Test results may vary depending on conditions and the actual parts tested. Persons or entities relying on the results of any testing do so at their own risk. In no event shall Gabriel, its employees and agents be liable for any claim of loss or damage on account of any alleged error or defect in testing procedure or result.
THE INFORMATION AND VIDEOS CONTAINED ON THIS WEBSITE ARE NOT INTENDED TO BE STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS. THEY ARE INTENDED FOR GENERAL INFORMATION PURPOSES ONLY.
BEFORE STARTING ANY VEHICLE REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT PROJECT, YOU MUST HAVE THE PROPER TRAINING, TOOLS, EQUIPMENT AND EXPERIENCE NECESSARY TO SAFELY AND CORRECTLY COMPLETE THE PROJECT. THIS IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT FOR ANYONE ATTEMPTING TO REPLACE A WORN STRUT OR SHOCK ABSORBER, BECAUSE THE FAILURE TO REMOVE THE WORN PART OR INSTALL THE REPLACEMENT PARTS CORRECTLY ON YOUR VEHICLE MAY RESULT IN PERSONAL INJURY OR DAMAGE TO PROPERTY.
EVERY VEHICLE IS DELIVERED WITH AN OEM OWNER’S MANUAL. IF YOU CANNOT LOCATE YOURS, SEVERAL PUBLICATIONS EXIST THAT WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH THE SPECIFICATIONS FOR THE PARTS ON THE VEHICLE YOU ARE ABOUT TO REPAIR. READ THE OEM MANUAL SPECIFIC TO THE MAKE AND MODEL OF YOUR VEHICLE AND THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT ACCOMPANY YOUR GABRIEL PRODUCT BEFORE UNDERTAKING ANY REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT PROJECT. ALWAYS SEEK THE ADVICE OR ASSISTANCE OF A PROFESSIONAL WHEN NEEDED.
