KYB Americas Corp. has announced a new partnership with Japan Offroad Service (JAOS) that will make KYB JAOS Suspension products available in North America through KYB distributors. Since 1985, JAOS has designed and manufactured a complete line of quality accessories and components for import and Jeep sport utility vehicles.
The new KYB JAOS line will kick off with lift kits for the Jeep Wrangler JK, as well as the Toyota 4Runner and FJ Cruiser. These Suspension Lift Kits provide up to a 2” lift as well as 14 position damping. An adjustable dial at the base of each KYB manufactured shock and strut allows for 14 different rebound and compression settings. The 14 settings allow the user to manually adjust the suspension for vehicle loads, larger tires and wheels and varying road conditions.
Each kit comes complete with two shocks or struts, two coil springs and other installation products as needed. Front and rear kits for the vehicles listed are currently available. Additional products for the Jeep Wrangler JL and Toyota 4Runner are scheduled to be released soon.
Continuing their tradition of utilizing offroad racing as a development platform, JAOS, along with KYB, will be entering a Lexus LX600 to compete in the upcoming 2022 Baja 1000.
