Performance Shocks & Struts

The springs on your vehicle react to bumps, ruts and other road irregularities, cushioning the impact. Struts and shocks control spring movement, isolating the cabin from vibration, preventing excessive body movement and keeping the tire tread in contact with the road, for optimal traction and control. Your OE shocks and struts are fine for cruising, but don’t have the damping calibration to provide the stability necessary for performance driving.

Featured Products

Shocks and struts have pistons that move up and down inside hydraulic fluid filled cylinders. As the pistons move up and down in response to spring movement, the hydraulic fluid is forced through small fluid passages and valves, which slows spring movement. Compression damping affects the spring when the vehicle hits a bump and it compresses, rebound damping controls the spring when it expands and forces the tire back down, after the bump.

We aim to provide our customers with the finest Performance Shocks & Struts the industry can offer, which is why we accept no compromise when it comes to the quality. Created by the most reputable names in the industry, such as Bilstein, KYB, Koni, Monroe, Daystar, Eibach, ST Suspensions, Skyjacker, ReadyLIFT, Belltech, Firestone Suspensions, Hotchkis, Superlift, ARB, Lakewood, Rugged Ridge, Omix-Ada, aFe the Performance Shocks & Struts we've gathered for you feature precise design and everlasting durability.

Properly designed shocks and struts have valving for all stages of piston movement, from short and gentle travel as would be encountered with minor road irregularities to rapid and lengthy travel caused by potholes. However, OE and ordinary replacement shocks and struts are compromises, with damping designed more for a smooth ride. When a vehicle is driven hard with such components, it can result in excessive body roll and dive, and poor vehicle control. Our performance shocks and struts are designed for spirited driving, especially when paired with higher rate performance coil springs.

Although they are not used much anymore, if your vehicle is equipped with hydraulic shocks, you can significantly upgrade performance by switching to gas shocks. The nitrogen gas prevents the foaming that can occur in hydraulic shocks, which results in reduced damping force and poor road holding. And if your vehicle is equipped with twin tube shocks, switching to monotube shocks will give you the benefit of the monotube’s larger piston and increased valving area, for increased damping and better handling, and better heat dissipation through the single tube, for consistent, fade-free performance.

If you have a front strut equipped truck and want to make it level for an improved stance and the fitment of larger tires, we have struts that allow the lower spring seat to be raised in one of several positions, so you can get the exact ride height you want. Although monotube shocks do a great job of getting rid of heat, for severe conditions we offer shocks with remote reservoirs for increased fluid capacity and heat dissipation. And if you want the ability to dial in your own damping rate for performance driving, we have shocks and struts that are externally adjustable without lifting the vehicle or removing the tires.

Guides & Articles
If you are using your "daily driver" car or truck for occasional towing duty, you are looking for that ideal sweet spot where the weekday commute is comfortable and quiet, and the weekend trailering feels solid and secure. In other words, you don't want to vehicle to feel too "stiff" during the week, nor do you want it to ride "soft" when pulling a trailer.
Very often we don't even realize what a crucial role a car's suspension plays in providing a safe and comfortable ride. The system maximizes the friction between the road surface and your vehicle's tires, ensuring steering stability along with responsive handling.
Shock absorbers, also known simply as “shocks” (which is what we will call them for the rest of this article), are the suspension components which stop your car or truck from bouncing up and down after hitting a bump. They are a major contributor to your ride comfort and safety.
