PDF of our struts sizing chart


The only truly “easy to use” universal “bag over” strut. BOSS “bag over” struts suit virtually any strut equipped car, Clevis mount, loop /loop or pin/loop fitments. We offer 5 lengths, all providing 10 position dampening. 22mm chromed shaft with a 50mm shock body enables any clevis or loop to be installed at the bottom or top. Steel top plates with lipped seals to prevent any leaks and exclusive BOSS pivot ball tops for fitting to most cars are supplied.

By measuring the distance from the top of the tyre to the bottom of the strut, its easy to select the bag over length required.

After almost 10 years designing air struts BOSS bag over struts can’t be matched. We even supply a no risk 900mm DOT rubber reinforced strut hose with all BOSS bag overs.

*Please note due to a change in the Australian Design Rules (ADR) all BOSS Bag-over struts come with the Factory fitting clevis pre-installed for the Australian market. It is not permitted for a third party company to install them.



*All posted USD prices are out of our factory only, you pay shipping, duties, taxes etc.
**Complete struts include bell tops, strut hose, seal plate and 2500# bags.
***Minimum Quantities are 100pcs of each size (10,12,14, 16, 18 etc).

Air Cylinders

BOSS manufactures automotive air cylinders specifically for use in suspension systems. Unlike industrial cylinders that are not designed for high cycle applications BOSS cylinders will last the distance. Suitable in place of coil-over suspensions (silver cylinders) and in strut applications on small vehicles (red and blue cylinders).

With technology designed and invented by the BOSS team, air cylinders can now ride better than the struts or coil-overs they replaced.

  • Coil-over - the shock and spring do not compensate for side loadings, has upper and lower control arms to support suspension.
  • McPherson strut - the strut is not supported by a suspension arm at the top, the strut takes care of side loadings when turning.
  • Bag-over - an airbag mounted over a shock absorber for strut or coil-over applications.
