How could I recognize what type of shock absorber is fitted at my car by the manufacturer?
The types of shock absorbers that have been fitted by the factory in series Forester from 1997 to early 2008 are: type A, type B and type C.
The safest way for us to recognize our own type of shock absorber is to roll up the car with a jack and remove a rear wheel to verify our own type of shock absorber.
-If there is an incorporated nitrogen flask at the bottom side of the shock absorber fitted, then we have type A which represents 90% of the cases.
-If there isn't an incorporated nitrogen bottle on the lower side of the shock absorber fitted and the factory colour is black, then we have type B.
-If there isn't an incorporated nitrogen bottle on the lower side of the shock absorber fitted and the factory colour is green, then we have type C.
ATTENTION: All the rear shock absorbers of the Forester series are brand Tokiko. If your rear shock absorbers are not Tokiko then they are not original and we do not accept the return of your non-original old shock absorbers.
2008 onwards: For models Subaru Forester 2008 onwards, our company has been going on the process of reconstruction and the improvement of the rear shock absorber. At present we are in a testing phase and we emphasize particularly on the improvement of grip. Therefore we have already improved the way of lifting permanent larger loads. In the upcoming months we will be ready to offer you the unique advantages of our solution at the best price.
