The KYB Gas-a-Just monotube truck shock absorber has additional performance advantages over the twin-tube design: It can instantly, automatically adjust to your performance needs and never experiences fade due to aeration. The Gas-a-Just is available as an OE monotube replacement and as an OE twin-tube performance upgrade.The KYB Gas-a-Just has two separate working chambers: An air-free hydraulic piston and valve area for responsiveness & control, and a second high-pressure nitrogen gas area with a floating piston that provides a comfortable ride during normal driving and adds instant performance on demand.

Product Features:
  • Provides up to 25% more damping control over original equipment shocks
  • Gas-a-Just reacts to load changes and adds instant responsiveness on Ford trucks
  • High gas pressure design is perfect for hauling heavy loads
  • Monotube design outperforms all other standard shock absorbers
  • Unique, air-free, hydraulic unit eliminates performance fade
  • Engineered to help vehicles with electronic safety systems (ESC, ABS, etc.)
