What is the difference between oil shock absorbers and gas-oil shock absorbers?
According to the perception of most car owners, oil shock absorbers are "softer", the car feels more comfortable, but tilts more in corners and "bites" during acceleration and braking. Gas-oil shock absorbers are stiffer, but provide better control of the road and driving. We would like to remind you that all shock absorbers, regardless of their construction, use oil, or to be more precise a special hydraulic fluid. In oil shock absorbers air pressure is atmospheric, while in gas-oil shock absorbers - both of single and double tube design - in order to improve their performance, inert gas is pumped in under high pressure. This is why professionals refer to gas-oil shock absorbers as "gas-filled" shock absorbers.
KYB (Kayaba) PREMIUM shock absorbers
Premium double-tube oil shock absorbers are the best option for economical replacement of used original shock absorbers. Increased comfort level.
Depending on the vehicle, different shock absorber designs are required. It is easy to identify them by the first two digits of the code. If the number starts with 44 - it is a classic two-pipe shock absorber. If 63 - a two-tube McPherson-type strut. If 66 - two-tube oil cartridge. Also by these numbers you can find out that it is the oil shock absorber in front of you.

The Excel-G dual-tube gas-filled shock absorbers are an excellent replacement for the stock shock absorbers, providing improved vehicle handling and increased driving safety.
They also differ in design by the first two digits of the number. If it starts with 34 - it is a classic two-pipe shock absorber. If 33, it's a two-tube McPherson-type strut. If 36 - two-pipe gas-oil cartridge.
