    If Suspension is altered from stock ride height, additional measurement are required:
    Measure your existing shock absorber by either removing it from the vehicle or on the vehicle. Determine extension length by jacking the car up until the wheels start to lift off the ground. This will be your extension length, measure the shock from each mounting surface. Next determine the ride height measurement of your current shock absorber. This can be achieved by measuring the same points but with the car sitting at ride height. Example A shows where to measure a bearing mount (center to center eye). Example B shows where to measure a stud mounted shock (center of lower eye to the bottom of the stud bushing).

    Manufacturer's Part Number:

    Shock absorbers are, without a doubt, the brains of your suspension. Nothing influences how your car rides and handles more than its shock absorbers. Their primary function is to control the oscillations of your car's suspension spring thereby keeping your tires in contact with the road.

    To best accomplish that objective, RideTech Smooth Body HQ (Handling Quality) Shocks are built on a monotube design. Monotube shocks optimize performance by using fewer i9nternal components than twin tube shocks. The Monotube key advantages are the use of a larger piston, more precise valving & an efficient oil flow path to create cooler operating temperatures & predictably consistent performance respect to damping and reliability in extreme environments. These unique shock absorbers have been more than 16 years in the making, and the technology and overall upgrade they provide will change the ride and handling of your vehicle.

    The HQ Series shock adds rebound adjustment for the driver who wants to tune ride quality and handling quality to their specific taste. A wide rebound adjustment range allows you to cruise down the road in plush comfort or firm up your suspension for those Saturday morning canyon roads!
