AAD offers an extensive range of quality shock absorbers & struts. AAD’s supplies three quality brands, Gabriel, KYB & Monroe.


As a National distributor of the Gabriel range of shock absorbers and struts, AAD’s range is nothing short of impressive.
With Australia’s largest range of Gabriel stocked in all five warehouses you can be sure we have it. AAD has applied its’ philosophy in brake, to the suspension market and adopted a must have approach. If it is required in the country we have it.

Shock absorber innovation just hit another milestone.

Here’s why you didn’t even feel it.

Presenting the new ultra line of shock absorbers and struts featuring G-Force technology from Gabriel. This technology is the coming together of countless man-hours and rigorous testing to create a shock absorber that doesn’t just react, but actually thinks, leaving you with a shock absorber guaranteed to deliver the ultimate in safety, response and long-lasting performance.

Ultra products are precision engineered for the ultimate in safety and performance.

G-Force technology includes:

  • Stable Steer Valving – Provides consistent response from all corners, giving you the most stable, safest ride
  • G-Force Piston – Bonded iron construction for durability and longer life
  • Leak-Proof Piston Seal – Eliminates oil by-pass for maximum shock effectiveness and performance

Features and Benefits

  • Infinitely variable damping for on demand control for all road conditions
  • G-Force technology for quicker response, improved product life and consistent, reliable ride control
  • Stable Steer valving provides improved tire contact with the road for control, safety, and performance
  • 1 3/8” bore piston (in most applications) with bonded iron construction for durability and longer life
  • Leak-proof piston seal and rod guide eliminates oil bypass
  • Orifice control disk with variable nine stage valving provides consistent oil flow
  • OE designed single lip oil seal minimizes friction for optimal sealing
  • Super finished chromed piston rod provides superior corrosion resistance and enhanced seal properties
  • Larger, bulged tube (in most applications) aids in cooling
