If you know anything about suspensions, then you have undoubtedly heard of KYB. About 1 out of every 5 new vehicles produced in the world is built with KYB shocks or struts! That is an incredible share of the suspension market. KYB is also a leader in original equipment for the aftermarket, which is why Buy Auto Parts has decided to carry the KYB name. When you are restoring your car, you want to put a shock in your vehicle that makes it handle like it was new. If you are looking to regain the firmness in your suspension that you had when you first purchased your car then KYB shocks and struts are the way to go! All KYB products purchased in the United States are assembled in Indianapolis, Indiana.
KYB manufactures a range of ride control, electronic and hydraulic parts for the Original Equipment (OEM) and aftermarket industry. Based in Tokyo, Japan, the brand markets its parts across various countries in the continents of the United States, Europe and Asia. Besides the production of suspension components such as shock absorbers and struts, the brand builds a range of power steering systems, construction and agricultural equipment.
KYB’s origins date back to 1919, when it was founded as the Kayaba Research Center by Shiro Kayaba. It was only in 2005 that the brand adopted its current name. To cater to the requirements of the North American market, it has established a sales subsidiary, KYB Americas Corporation, which is based in Greenwood, Indiana.
As an integral player in the production of suspension parts, KYB offers a wide variety of shock and strut assemblies for almost all makes and models. The twin tube shock comes standard in about 85% of passenger vehicles. It offers the comfort and control that is required for regular driving. An OEA KYB twin tube shock is 5% stiffer than a standard shock. Over time your suspension system wears down - it will not be as firm as it was when it was new. If you were to put a standard shock into your car, you would not get the performance that you got when it was new. By making it 5% firmer the OEA KYB twin tube shock compensates for the aging of your suspension and allows it to handle the way it did when you first bought it.
The current range of parts manufactured by KYB includes Excel-G twin-tube shocks, struts and cartridges, Strut-Plus complete assemblies, Gas-a-Just monotube shocks and struts, MonoMax heavy-duty monotube shock absorbers and AGX manually adjustable shocks, struts and cartridges.
KYB makes shocks to fit all your suspension needs. Whether you are looking for upgrades for your street tuner or a replacement for your Duramax, KYB has the right shock or strut for you.
