Shock Absorber and Strut Comparison Guide

 

This is just a quick glance chart to give you a view of the different shocks designs on one page.

In our opinion, monotube high pressure gas units offer the best dampening power, performance, and handling. (the dark green section).

This does not mean you always need performance. For average driving, a twin tube low pressure unit is still a good choice. (indicated in the yellow section).

The AGX is a specific kind of unit for performance, and the only adjustable unit for cars we carry of this kind (indicated by the light green section).

 

 

Bilstein Sports - High pressure gas monotube design. 360psi to prevent aeration and shock fade. Sports usually (but not always) have a stiffer performance valving than the Heavy Duty units, and are recommended for vehicles with a lowered / performance suspension-springs installed. On shock applications, they can usually be used on stock height cars and trucks as well. These are great for performance, handling, and stability. (They are only available for a few specific vehicles).

Bilstein Heavy Dutys - High pressure gas monotube design. 360psi to prevent aeration and shock fade. These are very durable units and great for performance, handling, and stability. The best choice for work and severe use vehicles.

Bilstein Light Dutys - High pressure gas monotube design. 360psi to prevent aeration and shock fade. These have a lighter valving than the Heavy Duty units. (They are only available for a few specific vehicles).

KYB Monomax for Trucks - High pressure gas monotube design. 280psi to prevent aeration and shock fade. Unlike Gasajust units, which all have a similar valving, Monomax units are valved specifically for the vehicle they go on. These are great for performance, handling, and stability.

KYB Gasajust - High pressure gas monotube design. 280psi to prevent aeration and shock fade. These are great for performance, handling, and stability. Because of their price, this is the most economical monotube shock design we carry. And one of the most popular.

Edelbrock IAS Performer - High pressure gas monotube design. 200psi to prevent aeration and shock fade. These are great for performance, handling, and stability. IAS shocks also feature urethane bushings and Powder Coated finish. MADE IN THE USA!

Edelbrock IAS Classic for Cars - High pressure gas monotube design. 200psi to prevent aeration and shock fade. These are great for performance, handling, and stability. The Classic series is identical to the red IAS Performers, except they are painted a gunmetal color and feature a classic Edelbrock logo on the unit itself. MADE IN THE USA!

KYB AGX for Cars - Low pressure gas twin-tube design. These units are externally adjustable to give you more control over your handling and control. You can adjust the valving. They can also be used on cars with lowering / handling springs up to 1 1/2 of lowering (no coil-overs).

KYB GR2 - Low pressure gas twin-tube design. These units are good for average, everyday driving, and a very good replacement for the OE units you have.

Bilstein Touring Class TC - Low pressure gas twin-tube design. These units are good for average, everyday driving, and a very good replacement for the OE units you have.
