KYB launches new electronic catalogue

KYB Europe Aftermarket has launched a new and improved electronic catalogue. The new catalogue has been developed in partnership with TecDoc, with whom KYB is an A-rated data supplier. It can be found at


There are many benefits to this new electronic version of the KYB catalogue. It allows the user to search using the vehicle plate number, VIN or OE number, it also allows users to cross reference from competitors to KYB, plus it is extremely user friendly. The content is updated every four weeks.

KYB invests considerable resources into electronic cataloguing, with a team of people inputting and checking data on a daily basis. The new catalogue will help distributors to select the correct part first time, reducing the chance to supply incorrect product to the garage.

In Europe, KYB is a leading manufacturer of original equipment (OE) shock absorbers, with several factories in Spain and the Czech Republic. The same world class OE product quality is available to the European aftermarket. KYB now also manufactures aftermarket coil springs in a new purpose built factory. In addition, KYB Europe supplies a comprehensive range of suspension mounting kits and protection kits.

KYB recommends that all shock absorbers and coil springs are fitted in pairs, to restore the vehicles suspension performance and handling to how the vehicle manufacturer designed it.
