            replaced old shocks (Gabriels). the Gabriels expanded quicker than this particular shock. Only one of my old shocks were still good. But will do for only light trucks with little hauling.

                                  To know the exact fit application, If you could please include the year make and model of the vehicle and we would be better able to assist you.

                                  There really isn't much difference in my opinion, just the truck shock absorber is more heavier duty.
