Product Description

As featured in School Bus Fleet Magazine!

Shock absorbers are critical components of a truck's suspension system. Not only do they absorb rough road impacts, but they reduce vibrations from potholes and uneven surfaces making it easier to brake and safer to move freely on long-haul trips.

This Match Made shock absorber is designed for several commercial vehicle applications including Ford, Freightliner and Thomas models using FAS II Airliner suspension and drive axle applications. It contains a chrome plated piston rod that prevents corrosion, extending the life of the product, and a square groove PTFE piston seal for low friction. It also contains a specially designed STOP control component to prevent rod punctures and valve damage. This aftermarket shock has a proprietary bushing formulation proven to outlast other brands tested and are produced with unique oil seal design to control loss of shock oil and nitrogen gas charge. Upper and lower valve packages are made from 100% disk technology. The weld work on this shock has the highest breakpoint rating in the industry, as an added bonus. It has a 14.96 in. to 22.95 in. compressed to extended length measurement. The stroke measures at 7.99 in. and has a bore size of 1.75 in.
