Features & Benefits

Engineered for comfort and control in today’s trucks, vans and SUVs, Gabriel® ProGuard™ shocks absorbers’ larger diameter piston delivers better-than-OE response and performance with increased oil capacity for better heat dissipation to maintain control. And like all Gabriel shocks and struts, ProGuard™ shocks feature a super-finished chromed piston rod for superior corrosion resistance and a leak-proof piston seal which extends product life.

  • Piston seal reduces oil by-pass for maximum shock control and performance
  • Larger reservoir tube provides better cooling for longer shock life
  • Low friction oil seal for greater comfort and longer shock life
  • 1-3/8 In. bore piston construction for greater durability

    Very impressive for the cost

    I purchased these shocks to replaced the factory original shocks on my 2003 Avalanche. These shocks installed very easily and were a direct fit replacement. The ride and handling has improved back to how it rode and drove when new. Time will tell how they hold up, but so far so good. Very impressed.

    Pros: easy to instal, function perfectly, resonable cost

    Cons: Appearance - these shocks look plain

    Not for me

    1 of 1 people found this helpful

    If you like a hard ride you will like these shocks, I do not, It feels like someone welded all of my suspension together. These are the roughest riding shock I have every seen.

    Pros: Easy install

    Cons: Rough Ride

    Nice replacement for OEM

    1 of 1 people found this helpful

    Easy installation requiring nothing more than lifting the corner involved (from the frame to unload the suspension) and removing the wheel. The top nut on the old shock may be tough to get off if you live in corrosion-land; a bit of PB Blaster helps.

    Note that the included hardware is different in design than OEM; the OEM system has a two-piece bushing that is "captive" for tightening (cannot be over-compressed) and thus the top nut is torqued against it. This setup uses two bushings between a pair of half-moon steel clamps; a reasonable pre-load is placed with the securing nut and then is locked with the supplied locknut. It's simple and works well; how it holds up over time remains to be seen.

    For the price it's hard to argue with and unless you have trouble getting the old shock out due to corrosion replacement is simplified by the torsion-beam design of the front suspension making access to the fasteners trivial. Recommended, especially considering the nice price-point.

    Pros: Easy install, hardware included (use it!)

    Cons: None

    Not great for a 2004 Avalanche

    1 of 1 people found this helpful

    The avalanche seems to have a special bushing system and a larger than normal hole. The bushing has a metal sleeve in the middle of it. So I was just going to reuse it but the shaft of the shock was too large to go through. Purchased another brand.

    Cons: It did not fit
