KYB Excel-G Rear Left Kia Sportage / Hyundai Tucson JM 2004-2012 (1PC 339747)
Ride Comfort may be important, but restoring a vehicle’s Ride Control, stability, stopping, lane change responsiveness and handling is critical.
KYB Excel-G Shocks & Struts are designed for the most important performance purpose: Restoring the vehicle’s original capabilities. KYB is a world leading supplier of shocks and struts to new vehicle manufacturers and the Excel-G is made on the very same KYB OE assembly lines, uses the same OE quality components and is calibrated to restore original, designed performance, not change it.
That has earned Excel-G the classification: OEA (Original Equipment for the Aftermarket). The KYB Excel-G is a nitrogen gas-charged, twin-tube design that includes every quality component that our global OEM products include and it is the preferred choice by professional technicians.
Vehicle specific, hand assembled in house damping valves: The rebound and compression valves are the heart of a shock; they manage tire contact, steering response and control body movement. KYB assembles both the rebound and compression valves by hand, in a pressurized clean room to avoid contamination and make sure the valves control vehicle and tire movement as designed.
Fluid leaking can be a cause of shock failure. The KYB Excel-G has an ultra-smooth triple chrome plated chrome piston rod to reduce seal wear. The multi-lip, synthetic oil seal is also engineered to keep fluid in and has a wiper to keep contaminates out of the oil.
Proper wheel alignment is critical to vehicle performance, KYB utilizes the thickest and strongest bodies and brackets in the industry to increase rigidity. A sintered iron rod guide also helps to maintain correct alignment in all driving conditions.
Fluid must be managed through the valves for a shock to keep a vehicle operating as designed. The KYB Excel-G uses seamless, extruded steel tubing in the inner cylinders, and includes a Teflon band around the piston for a positive seal. This eliminates the chance of any fluid bypass and allows the valves to do their job and keep you in control.
