Twin tube gas charged shock absorbers, struts and cartridges NSF, NSG, NST Series.
Improved damping characteristics, improved straight-line stability and compliance in the corners.
KYB suspension tuning experts perform full vehicle testing for New SR shock absorbers and determine the optimal suspension characteristic for each car model.
Important to use when replacing OE mono-tube dampers to retain the correct design features of these vehicles. OE mono-tubes are most commonly found in NZ on mid 70’s to 80’s Mercedes vehicles, plus some Japanese performance vehicles such as Subaru Legacy GBT (Bilstein) Subaru Imprezza STI (KYB).
Of recent importance is the FG Falcon which has displayed lacklustre characteristics when the OE mono-tubes have been replaced with twin-tubes.
mono-tubes have been replaced with twin-tubes.
