Choosing the right shock absorber is easy, says KYB

KYB says it is one of the world’s largest suppliers of shock absorbers, with one in every five vehicles built fitted with KYB shocks and struts.
Combined, there are a total of nine KYB Sub Brands, each specifically designed to meet the needs of different driving styles and applications.
“In the last 12 months we have added three new KYB brands to what was already an extensive range,” KYB Australia Product Marketing Manager, Larry Coulthard, said.
With such an extensive range on offer, KYB says there is a shock absorber to suit every driving style and application, but the complexity of the range can make it a little difficult to choose the exact shock absorber.
To address this, KYB has launched its innovative Shock Selector. Featuring important technical and application information for each of the nine brands, the Shock Selector allows users to quickly and easily identify the KYB Brand that best suits their requirements.
Once the brand has been selected, finding the specific shock absorber for their vehicle is easy using the KYB Part Finder, says KYB.
“As the market leader we need to stay ahead of the curve and our new Shock Selector certainly delivers on our promise of innovation, by taking the complexity out of choosing the right shock absorber for each individual application,” Larry said.
The most recent additions to the KYB range includes the following brands: Tena Force for Standard Height Heavy Duty applications, New SR Special for performance upgrades to Japanese imports and the Ultra SR range designed specifically for performance upgrades to imported European models.
These three brands join KYB’s Excel-G, Gas-a-just, Premium, Skorched 4’s, Extage and AGX brands in supplying an extensive array of products to suit a wide array of requirements.
