The Suspension consists of tires, tire air, springs, shock absorbers and linkages connecting a vehicle to its wheels and allows relative motion between the two making for a smoother ride. While you do get a smoother ride a balance needs to be found and Suspension systems must support both road holding/handling and ride quality, which are at odds with each other. The setting of suspensions involves finding the right compromise. It is important that the suspension keeps the road wheel in contact with the road surface as much as possible, because all the road or ground forces acting on the vehicle do so through the contact of the tires.. Usually the design of front and rear suspension of a car is different but new technology is making vast changes in this area.
KYB is one of the world’s largest suppliers of shock absorbers to vehicle manufacturers, with 1 in 4 of all vehicles leaving production lines worldwide fitted with KYB as standard. KYB is also the largest OE shock absorber supplier in Europe. Years of expertise have helped KYB to become an industry leader not only in shock absorber production but integrated automobile control systems and suspension module production and development.
KYB aftermarket shock absorbers are manufactured using the same factories and technology as for OE. The valving is updated to allow for the fact that the shock absorbers will be fitted to a vehicle with other worn suspension components; in order to restore the ride as close as possible to how the vehicle was when it was brand new. This means that KYB aftermarket products are the same as OE supply.
KYB provides superior product quality to all of its customers throughout the world in a variety of industries. KYB will never compromise on product quality. All KYB factories are certified with ISO9001, QS9000 and ISO14001
