Whether your vehicle requires a damper to work with existing springs or a strut, coil over hydropneumatic damper, General Kinetics has the solution. Passive dampers can be configured with integrated end stops or position sensitive damping to further extend performance. Hydropneumatic struts offer the spring and damper functions in a single unit.
