SHOCK, Rear, KYB, Gas-a-just, each, high pressure gas, currently these shocks are painted silver by KYB, TheKYB Gas-a-justmonotube shock absorber has additional performance advantages over the traditional twin-tube design: It can instantly, automatically adjust to your performance needs and never experiences fade due to aeration. 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.
