Please answer the following questions before adding to cart to help us provide you with customized for your specific vehicle.
Horse trailers. Travel campers. Cords of firewood. Your rig's drivetrain can handle these massive loads without so much as breaking a sweat. But, they put a lot of strain on your suspension. All that weight over your rear end squashes stock shocks like a bug under a boot. Stiffen up and drive right with Gabriel HIJACKER Shocks, the fully adjustable air shocks.
Whether you need a touch of extra support or a ton, you have the power to dial in the perfect degree of stiffness with your Gabriel HIJACKERS. They inflate like your tires—simply air them up before you towing for enhanced handling and a dramatically reduced risk of bottoming out. Once you've unhitched your trailer or unloaded your payload, just let out a bit of air for cloud-like smoothness.
As durable as they are useful, your HIJACKER Shocks are built tough with chrome-plated piston rods and unbeatable wiper seals for maximum dependability. And, they're custom sized for a direct replacement fit, making installation a cinch. Plus, Gabriel covers your HIJACKER air shocks with a 1-year/25,000-mile warranty.
Our 20+ Gabriel HIJACKER Shocks customer reviews have an average rating of 4.50 out of 5 stars. To see specific reviews about your vehicle, please select your year, make and model from the drop down above.

really great product for the price. i have purchased several of these over the years for different vehicles, and was very pleased with all of them. deffinately worth the buy for a better ride, and to raise your vehicle a little for different loads.

very poor so far. I bought these to help hold up the truck and level it out while towing a trailer. They claim to take up to 200 pounds of air, so far I haven't managed to get more than 80 lbs in them and they don't raise the truck at all. At this time I wouldn't recommend.

These are a great deal .. sold at the same price I paid for a pair - 25 years ago !! They installed in a fraction of the time it took to remove the 10 year old OE shocks. Regular shock action with the ability to level out my truck when I tow or carry heavy loads.

Gabriel Hijacker Air shocks did just what I needed for my ford explorer. It lifted rear end and does not sag anymore.The ride is still smooth. Also I use the explorer to haul a dump trailer,a put 4 tons of rocks on trailer and the explorer hardly moved with that load.I am one happy customer!!!

How do I find out if my 1995 Ford Explorer has a rear adjustable suspension or just a standard one? Does it refer to the rear pneumatic suspension?
Answered by Nathan S. — Jul 09, 2012 7:28 AM 1995 Ford Explorer
This kit will fit trucks with standard springs, such as leafs or coils. The definately will not fit a truck with factory air bag suspension.flag Accept Answer

Unfortunately, we can only ship to US territories and Canada at the moment. We can certainly ship to a freight forwarding company of your choice here in the states. Feel free to give us a call to place your order.flag Accept Answer

We install San Gabriel air shock system on a 73 dodge charger. we do not have any leaks on the lines and hte shocks are one side 1 1/4" higher than the other side. What should we do to fix this problem?

You might have a weak leaf spring. If you have installed new leaf springs, keep in mind that some mopar springs actually make one side of the car sit higher to compensate for engine torque.flag Accept Answer

Which one is compatible with the Gabriel HiJacker air adjustable shocks?? Thank you. DJ
Answered by Nathan S. — May 03, 2012 3:57 PM 2002 Ford Mustang
You can certainly use these shocks in the rear of your mustang as an overload shock. Any attempt to use them with an air management system or front air bags would possibly require modification of the lines or kit.flag Accept Answer

I have a T&C minivan and would like to know the PSI for airshocks. Currently it's 110PSI is this too low, just right or too high? This is with no load only my wife and I driving.
Answered by Nathan S. — May 03, 2012 3:59 PM 2002 Ford Mustang
I would say that is a safe number considering you could go to 200 psi maximum air pressure.flag Accept Answer
