All the way back in 1907, Gabriel invented the original shock absorber for automobiles. Before long they also rolled out the first hydraulic shock absorber, the first adjustable shocks, and the first air-adjustable shock absorber. So if you want to talk about experience in shock design, these guys were literally there from the beginning.

Of course, the automotive industry has evolved mightily over the last century, and with it so did Gabriel. To this day, Gabriel continues to be the same independent, innovative American automotive company that introduced new concepts to the world. With both aftermarket and original equipment shocks and struts, they provide gear for over 96% of North American vehicles. They don't just do cars and heavy duty vehicles - they even provide equipment for stuff like car washes and industrial washing machines.

Gabriel is constantly broadening their line of products, while also endlessly searching on improvements to existing designs and expanding the number of vehicles they fit. Every new design is fit- and ride-tested for maximum performance and comfort, and they continue to take steps in manufacturing that are typically reserved for high-cost "premium" brands - most notably their extra-finished chrome piston rods, which ensure amazing durability, an even wear pattern, and a superior seal.

When you're looking to improve your suspension performance, no matter what you do with your vehicle, trust the company that started the automotive shock industry - the Original Gabriel.
