What is an Ultra™ Cartridge?

Gabriel Ultra Cartridge

A typical strut must be replaced as an entire unit. The hydraulic wear-out items – piston, seals, tube and rod – are contained in the tube-and-rod assembly, which is permanently enclosed in the strut body.

In some strut designs, however, these wear-out items can be replaced or upgraded separately, with a new cartridge. A Gabriel® Ultra™ Cartridge is a self-contained tube-and-rod assembly, with all new hydraulic components, to replace your worn-out parts. Because it is an Ultra design, you can be sure that it has a super-finished chromed piston rod and G‑Force™ Technology, providing you with superior corrosion protection and the perfect combination of safety, performance and control in your car’s ride.
