broaden lines, test new designs and introduce new products.” Gabriel’s full-line of shock and strut coverage includes Guardian, ProGuard, Ultra, its premium line, MaxControl, as well as specialty products like Gabriel Hijackers shock absorbers and other accessories.

faster and safe installation of all new struts and component parts including the mount and spring for a complete out-of-the-box replacement solution.

Like other Gabriel products, ReadyMount strut assemblies are Fit and Ride tested before they are ever offered to the public. First, Gabriel technical experts fit-test parts on the actual vehicles for which they are designed to verify the parts fit properly and can be
easily installed. Then the technical experts ride-test the parts on US roads to verify they meet Gabriel’s high quality standards and that they deliver OE (or better) ride performance.

“All the parts in the catalog are supported by our AnswerMen at our Tech line who are the same experts who conduct the tests,” continues Janet Qian. “That first-hand knowledge and experience on all our parts is invaluable to our customers.” Gabriel’s full line catalog is available to view or download online at Printed copies are available by calling 1-800-251-5932.
