Shocks are the single biggest change to be made on the Freightliner chassis. The stock shock absorbers made by Sachs do not offer the control and ride quality that most people are looking for.
We recommend Bilstein shocks for the best in ride quality and stability. Bilstein is the leader in gas charged shock technology.
Gas charging on a shock does not harm ride quality. What it does is make the shock perform the same all the time by not allowing the oil to foam as a conventional shock does.
We have Bilstein Shocks for the Straight axle and Independent front end designs.
