Gabriel Guardian™ shocks are the replacement shocks you can count on to get you from point A to point B without any surprises. Guardian™ 9-stage valving is tuned specifically for your vehicle’s application and a high-pressure nitrogen gas charge resists compression and aids in rebounding to keep your tires in constant contact with the road. The pressure also reduces fluid foaming that causes faulty damping and fade, ensuring you get superior handling, stability and control, without the loss of highway driving comfort.
Guardian™ shocks deliver new car-like performance at a value price. But unlike other companies, Gabriel uses a super-finished chromed piston rod on all of brand's products, not just on the “premium” ones. So even though it’s a value price, you know you’re getting superior corrosion protection, long-lasting durability and the highest quality with Gabriel Guardian™ shocks. It’s the right thing to do, and what you would expect from the company that designed the first automotive shock absorber in 1907 – the Original Gabriel.
Synonymous with technology-advanced products, Gabriel® is the company of 'firsts' founded by Claud H. Foster with a strong dedication to revolutionize automobile suspension systems. In 1907, Gabriel created one of its most prominent inventions - the original automotive shock absorber, then followed by the first automotive hydraulic shock absorber, adjustable shock absorber and air-adjustable shock absorber. With the same pioneering and independent attitude backed by over 100 years of manufacturing expertise and innovation, Gabriel continues to precision engineer and advance its high-performance shocks and struts as well as fit- and ride-test them to ensure that you'll get that legendary quality, best-in-class performance and unmatched durability that allows the company stand many miles ahead of the competition. Experience the Gabriel independent spirit with any vehicle on any road.
