For Cars & Light Trucks
GR-2 (silver)/Excel-G (black) gas shock absorbers, strut cartridges and complete struts are affordably priced, twin tube designs that blend a smooth ride quality with enhanced road control. A low-pressure gas charge and patented check valve minimize foaming and aeration to help make sure the ride stays consistent, even under rough conditions. When you want to blend like-new vehicle ride qualities with a little more control, you want KYB GR-2/Excel-G gas series shock absorbers, strut cartridges or complete struts.
IMPORTANT NOTE: KYB’s silver GR-2 gas series shock absorbers, strut cartridges and struts have the same internal design as the black Excel-G versions. There are no internal differences, changes in quality, performance or application between the silver and black models regardless of place of manufacture. Silver models with the name GR-2 were sold solely for vehicles in the United States and Canada while the black Excel-G models were sold for vehicles in other countries. KYB is moving toward one name and one color and in the future all will be black and labeled with the Excel-G name.
