TOKICO Performance Shocks has been manufacturing shock absorber, brake parts and hydraulics for over 65 years. The company has been and continues to be a major original equipment supplier to a variety of auto manufacturers.
Responding to auto manufacturers? demands for shocks that could provide both good stability and good ride quality, TOKICO developed the twin-tube low-pressure gas shock absorber. TOKICO began working on this technology in the mid 1970?s. Since then much of the technology has been adopted world-wide.
The first U.S. built vehicle using twin-tube low-pressure gas shock absorbers was the 1982 Lincoln Continental. Those shocks and struts were designed and supplied by TOKICO, a long time leader in electronic shock absorbers and suspension products.
