The Gas-a-just is available as an OE monotube replacement for vehicles that came equipped with a monotube shock, and as a performance upgrade on vehicles that came equipped from the factory with twin-tube shocks. The KYB Gas-a-just has two separate working chambers: An air-free hydraulic piston and valve area for responsiveness and control, and a second high-pressure nitrogen gas area with a floating piston that provides a comfortable ride during normal driving and adds instant performance on demand.The high pressure monotube design responds instantly to conditions and driver inputs to deliver increased handling capabilities over twin-tube designsMonotube shocks have separate chambers for the nitrogen gas and hydraulic fluid, this eliminates aeration and foaming and helps maintain consistent damping force in all conditions.Fluid leaking can be a cause of shock failure, the KYB Gas-a-just has an ultra-smooth triple chrome plated chrome piston rod to reduce seal wear. The multi-lip, synthetic oil seal is engineered to keep fluid in and has a wiper to keep contaminates out of the oil.Adds handling and controlA great addition for larger tire and wheelsIncreases steering responseImproves stopping distanceIncreases stability

We;; if these KYB are adjustable then they didn't provide the instructions and I couldn't see how to adjust or any adjustment knob screw or anything to adjust, I had to take car into shop in order to get shocks on because I couldn't compress them enough to install in garage like my last non gas shocks. SO overall not very happy but then I haven't got car back to test drive.

Hello Gary,

 

“Gas-a-Just” has been a slogan/descriptor used by KYB for these shocks for decades. However, that does not mean that they are manually adjustable (which is an entirely different animal, and a much more expensive shock to buy).

 

I have pasted the complete product description from our website below. If you read it fully, you will see that the shock “automatically” adjusts itself to different driving conditions. It is a 2-chamber design.

 

Regarding installation, we have been selling these same shocks for three decades, many thousands of them. We’ve never heard of an installation issue. So I am hoping that your shop has success, and that you are pleased with the performance of the shocks. Again, please read below to understand how the “adjusting” happens with these shocks.

 

Thank you,

 

Rick
