Coilless gas charged shocks (also known as air shocks) and struts were out in a big way. With many of the units taking charges from the top and bottom of the shock, the idea is to use pressurized oil and gas to control the rebound and compression of the shocks. Some air shocks, such as ORI struts, act like bumpstops at full compression, eliminating the need for additional nitrogen-charged bumpstops.
