Max Control Monotube

Gabriel MaxControl Monotube shocks are great for off-roading or a solid, sporty ride when on the road. They feature a larger 1 13/16" (46mm) bore size, which increases strut pressure absorption, resulting in greater damping efficiency, quicker response, and the smoothest and safest ride possible.

  • New rod guide bearing allows greater sensitivity and response
  • Larger bore size inside the pressure tube enables the shocks to react quicker and creates a smoother and more comfortable ride
  • Super-finished chromed piston rod provides more consistent wear surface for proper seal lubrication over longer life
  • Single-tube design and multi-stage sealing minimize chamber temperature and help keep out debris for long-lasting durability
  • D.O.M. (Drawn-Over-Mandrel) tubing reduces internal wear for longer product life
  • High-pressure nitrogen gas and floating piston technology allow the shock to react immediately to steering wheel movements for ultimate handling
  • Additional external rod seal keeps the chamber virtually debris-free for longer lasting performance under any condition
  • Enhanced sensitivity and quicker response time keep tires in contact with the road to maximize braking effectiveness and keep you in control at all times
