When Terrain Tamer wanted to offer a premium twin-tube alternative to their award-winning G Series Slimline shock absorber range, the only option was to develop a product with increased internal chamber diameter and a larger piston rod. Having larger body dimensions allows for increased oil and gas capacity, which provides better cooling and reduces shock fade. Terrain Tamer TGS Expanded Body shocks and struts are designed for off-road durability and on-road comfort.
The TGS Series Expanded Body design incorporates a 20% increase in body diameter and a 25% larger diameter hardened piston shaft when compared to the G Series. This makes it a leading choice for off-road and heavy duty applications. With double-welded eyelets and high-quality Nitrile seals, these shock absorbers are built tough for a long life.
