New shock absorber catalogue

KYB has launched its latest shock absorber catalogue – a complete listing of the KYB range as well as details of all new applications.

The comprehensive catalogue features 139 new shock absorber part numbers for KYB’s five ranges of shock absorbers and includes applications for cars, car derived vans (CDVs) and light commercial vehicles (LCVs).  Many of the new parts are already available to order.

KYB-Shock-catalogue2The new additions cover an impressive 6 million cars across Europe. Notable new applications include: Audi A4 and A5; Citroen C3 (exclusive) C4 Picasso and Grand Picasso; Hyundai i20 (exclusive); Kia Ceed, Proceed, Sorento; Mazda 5; Nissan Qashqai+2; Peugeot 308; Renault Espace IV; Suzuki Alto; Vauxhall (Opel) Insignia.

Also included are over 40 additional applications for Suspension Mounting Kits – which increase the life of the shock absorber and are easily replaced at the same time as the shock absorbers, as well as over 46 new Protection Kit applications.

80 Vehicle manufacturers are included in the KYB shock absorber catalogue, giving the largest aftermarket car parc coverage in Europe. For easy reference they are listed alphabetically.  A helpful pictorial listing of suspension components is also included at the back of the catalogue.
The catalogue is available to download as a PDF from the KYB Europe website, as well as being listed on major electronic catalogues such as TecDoc.

KYB recommends that all shock absorbers are fitted in pairs, to restore the vehicle’s suspension performance and handling to how the vehicle manufacturer designed it.
