FCS Auto vs. OE Shocks and Struts

When comparing FCS to OEM shocks and struts, one of the key questions that always comes up is how our products compare to the OE units.

Two main points you need to consider when replacing your original shocks or struts with FCS

1. Meets Or Exceeds OE Quality

All FCS products are engineered to meet and exceed OE quality using the latest state-of-the-art manufacturing processes. All components and valving are specifically designed and calibrated to match the form, fit, and function required for each vehicle application, ensuring they provide the same ride and feel as the OE.

2. Affordable Pricing

We offer OE performance at an affordable price, providing customers with a cost-effective alternative to OE without compromising on quality.
