Gabriel is a brand name, they build shocks and struts. :tu:

I've used them on a few cars. Always hated them. They work well for awhile, but seem to wear out quickly.

But hey, what do you expect from a $12 shock. :P

No, you can get them here too. As far as I know they're rebranded Pedders or Monroe shocks

Are you sure Peddars aren't rebranded Gabriels? :wink:

And no relation to Monroe. Two separate companies. Similarly crappy products, though. :P
