Mounting struts

Strut mounts play a vital role in: handling, alignment, braking and steering. The mount attaches the suspension strut to the vehicle; one side is fastened to the vehicle, the other to the strut. In the middle is insulating rubber. As the vehicle moves, the up and down impact pushes and pulls at the mount. The mount cushions impact, to reduce the vibration and noise that would otherwise transmit to the vehicle.

Why choose Gabriel strut mounts?

  • Manufactured to OEM specification
  • Excellent rubber durability and elasticity

Protection kits

Gabriel protection kits protect the shock absorber piston rod from projections of dust or water. Easy to fit, the protection kit consists of a dust cover and a rubber shield. The cover protects the sealing and the piston rod. Any damage to, or corrosion on the piston rod will shorten the life expectancy of the shock absorber.
