The KYB Gas-a-Just mono tube shock absorber has additional performance advantages over the traditional twin-tube design: it can instantly, automatically adjust to your performance needs and never experiences fade due to aeration. The Gas-a-Just is available as an OE mono tube replacement and as an OE twin-tube performance upgrade. The KYB Gas-a-Just has two separate working chambers: an air-free hydraulic piston and valve area for responsiveness & control, and a second high-pressure nitrogen gas area with a floating piston that provides a comfortable ride during normal driving and adds instant performance on demand.
