    margalla is a family car not a shahzor truck nor you are going to rally in margalla, go for oil shocks and yes go with Gabriel ones.

    i dont have any experience but common sense says that gases can be compressed more than liquids so doesnt that mean you feel less shock when your car hits potholes?

    generally speaking gas ones offer better damping.

    since you are not into the bad practice of getting the shocks repaired therefore buy gas ones. use them and throw them away. and there isnt much price difference.

    unless you dump rear of your sedan with rolls of optic fiber cables and transmitters and UPSs and power supply units bla bla after removing the rear seats and clock like 500-800KM in a day, day in day out, you cant claim that you use it as shahzore

    yaar use thicker spacer, the one we insert between shock mounts before putting in CNG tank and show some sanity and if you have decided to giver her a danda plz go ahead with gassi shak

    gas charged struts are more efficient in removing heat from the unit and more stable at high temperature too, Those shocks get real hot when working.
