Pro Comp Shocks

If you own a truck or an SUV and you are strictly a “Buy American” kind of person when it comes to your vehicle’s suspension system, Pro Comp Shocks are worth a look.   Located in San Diego, California, they have been using state of the art technology to produce high quality shocks for both professional and amateur on and off road drivers since 1992.  Their huge manufacturing center uses cutting edge CAD (Computer Aided Design) engineering, CNC manufacturing processes (Computerized Numerical Control),  and laser cutting and fitting technology.   They also have extensive research and development operations in the same center and maintain a separate 60,000 square foot distribution center, allowing them to hold a huge inventory ready for quick shipping.  A quick tour of their web site at will give you an idea just how much they offer.
