Hydraulic vs Gas Charged Shocks, which are better for your car? gas, hydraulic, heavy duty, extra heavy duty ?

Posted by Administrator on 12/21/2013 to Shock Blogs




Hydraulic shocks provide a softer ride than gas charged.

 These shocks were original equipment on most cars prior to 1980.

 The ride feels softer because of slight lag of response in a hydraulic shock

 compared to a gas charged shock which has an instantaneous response.

Cadillac Commercial Car Rear Shocks - 1971

Posted by Administrator on 12/20/2013 to Shock Blogs
This is a new one to me: I had a customer today who says his shocks on the rear do not have the cross pin top mount and eye bottom mount. The shock on his car has a 3/8" stud mount top and bottom and a closed length of 12.5" and closed of 20.56". Does anyone else have this set up?

Why was I having trouble finding Front Shocks for my


1961 - 63 Buick Special, Buick Skylark,

or Oldsmobile Cutlass F-85


 Because these front shocks have a unique mounting configuration

with a cross pin mount on top and bottom.

This configuration was unique to these cars.
