Gabriel Ultras are precision-engineered for the ultimate in safety and performance and are designed to provide improved comfort and control, long life and durability, and maximum shock performance for today’s passenger cars.

Ultra shocks are equipped with G-Force technology featuring:

  • Infinitely Variable Damping for on-demand control on all road conditions
  • StableSteer Valving improving tire contact with the road for control, safety and performance
  • G-Force Piston (1 3/8” bore) with bonded iron construction for long life and durability
  • OE designed single lip oil seal minimizes friction for optimal sealing
  • Orifice Control Disk for consistent control for comfort and stability

And like all Gabriel shocks and struts, Ultra shocks feature:

  • A super-finished chromed piston rod to inhibit corrosion, ensure proper seal lubrication, provide a more consistent wear surface
  • A leak-proof piston seal which extends product life
  • D.O.M. (Drawn-Over-Mandrel) Tubing that reduces internal wear for longer product life
About Gabriel

Starting in 1907, Gabriel invented the original shock absorber, followed by the first hydraulic shock absorber, the first adjustable shock absorber and the first air adjustable shock absorber. And today, it's still that same innovative, independent American company--building high-performance shocks and struts that cover over 96% of North American vehicles. Gabriel continues adding new product coverage, including expanding their line of ReadyMount strut assemblies, which make installation faster, safer and easier. And Gabriel continues that independent spirit, working hard to deliver innovative new products and services, every day.


Product Description

The Gabriel Ultra Passenger Car Shock is precision-engineered for safety and performance, and it comes equipped with G-Force technology for quicker response, improved product life, and consistent, reliable ride and control.StableSteer valving provides response from all four corners, and the G-Force piston is bonded iron construction for durability and longer life.By providing a positive seal between the piston and working cylinder, the nitrile leak-proof o-ring piston seal eliminates oil bypass. The orifice disk with variable nine-stage valving provides consistent oil flow while the heavy duty compression head valve withstands extreme impact, greatly reducing internal component failure.Preventing oil blow-by between piston rod and piston, improving operational consistency, is the nitrile rod guide o-ring.Internal nitrogen gas pressure optimizes the relationship between product component and gas pressure, reducing fade and improving vehicle control.

Gabriel G57040 ReadyMount Complete Strut Assembly (Automotive)

I purchased these Rear Shock along with the Gabriel Front Ready Mount Struts listed above. Just pull back the side panel in the trunk without removing it to expose the rear Shock Mount. Do not remove the Shock Mount but remove the large Center Nut on the Shock by using an Offset Close End wrench and a Vise Grip or small Open End wrench to keep the Shock's Shaft from spinning as you remove the Nut. I managed to remove the Bolt under the car without jacking up the car but you may want to do so to gain some room but do not raise it too much and use a Jack Stand for safety. 3/4 to 1.5 Hours depending on your skill level and tools for both sides. The Offset Wrench is a must!!! Google for some Pictorial Tutorials. If you have trouble getting the Shock's Shaft to go into the small hole in the Shock Mount while under the car you may just want to remove the Shock Mount from the top and place it over the Shock's Shaft.

The ride is like being on marshmallows but very taunt when you encounter bumps. I would assume other cars may not be as taunt as Volvo's are designed that way. Rides so smooth I am not use to the marshmallow feel yet and the car is much quieter over all even though they are on 5 year old tires in need of replacement. Time will tell how they hold out. ENJOY & BLESSINGS!

Husband was able to install these on my 1998 Volvo S70 T, with no problems, in about 3 hours all 4 wheels (I also got the matching rear shocks done). Avoided the $350 install fee at the local shop because no specialty tools are needed to mount these struts. Had evaluated the 'Volvo spec' brand of suspension products on the specialty websites that we have here in the NW. Just did not want to go the twice the price route to have the cache and prestige of Volvo spec gear on this car, this daily driver that will see its wheels driven off in the course of my job that requires about 100 miles a day. So far, I find no appreciable negative difference in the ride quality (which was the reason I fell in love with this car to start with). Granted, by the time these were replaced, the ride quality was not likely close to what would have been 'factory'. But I notice the upgrade. Husband noted that the original gear that was on the car was definitely worn out at 156K miles, so the money spent was well worth it. If money is no object, and you like the prestige factor, sure, go with Volvo spec. If those two factors don't apply to you, then go ahead with these Gabriels. Super fast shipping via Amazon, too (vs. the 3 weeks it would have taken the local shop to procure them). Noted: I think I posted a review of the STRUTS (front end) here, when it should have been a review of the SHOCKS (rear end)!!LOL but you get the picture!

Easy install, about 1/2 the price of Honda factory parts and works and drives well on my Odyssey Van. Would buy again.

They fit and work great, i only recomment that you use the original nuts. The washer/nut provided where not think enough that caused a radil once installed. replace with original and radil gone. Also the nut with cap that volvo originally put on it better since it keeps it from rusting the nut to the bolt.
