Although shock absorbers might not be the most exciting part of a vehicle, they are important elements of the safety of a vehicle, equally like tyres and brakes.

Toyota genuine shock absorbers have several advantages, including adding value to the vehicle.

These absorbers are specifically designed for each individual Toyota model to optimise handling perfor­mance and suspension safety.

From the piston structure to the connective bushings, every Toyota genuine shock absorber is designed for perfect fit.

Many non-genuine shock absorbers are “one size fits all” designs for a variety of vehicles, regardless indivi­dual requirements.

Good shocks not only enhance safety and performance, but also increases comfort.

High-quality materials

All Toyota shock absorbers include bushings and include Teflon processed piston bands and piston rods which are specially coated for superior rust resistance.

These long-lasting parts work smoothly to reduce noise and bumps to make driving a pleasure. Many non-genuine shock absorbers avoid using Teflon and other protective measures.

Toyota genuine shock absorbers are designed for longevity and performance. If you have your Toyota Service Centre service your vehicle, the shock absorbers will always be inspected according to the servicing schedule.

Toyota genuine shock absorber

Only genuine Toyota shock absor­bers are designed and engineered specifically for your Toyota vehicle.

Our genuine Toyota shock absorbers perform better, last longer and give a more comfortable ride.

Not so obvious is the safety role they play in your vehicle’s handling and steering.

Shock absorbers deteriorate over time and may need to be replaced.

Signs your vehicle might need new shock absorbers include:

  • uncomfortable driving;
  • bouncing after dips or bumps;
  • less control over steering;
  • tyres wearing out faster;
  • longer stopping distances;
  • unresponsive steering; and
  • an abnormally bumpy ride.

Worn shock absorbers can also cause tyres to wear and reduce the efficiency of the anti-lock braking system (ABS) and the electronic stability control (ESP), and increase the risk of skidding in wet conditions.
