Nitro Charged Shocks

The Walker Evans nitrogen-charged shocks have a floating piston in the reservoir, and 2-inch aluminum bodies with hard chromed shafts. They come with special seals that reduce oil leaks with slight deflection as well as reducing seal drag for easy movement. The 12- or 16-position valves adjust the reservoir orifice to adjust the ride quality, and they are fitted with a safety bypass so that it won't blow out seals when abused on the hardest setting. We found minimal body roll on the hardest setting, but with such a short-wheelbase vehicle, we run it softer to keep our fillings intact.
