Air Shocks

Air shocks have become extremely common for hard-core trail rigs and rock buggies because the compression and rebound are easily adjustable. The air acts as a spring, which can be adjusted by the volume of air in the shock. Air shocks are usually built for the most extreme rockcrawling conditions with hardened chromoly tubing and shafts of 1.25 inches or more in diameter. These may not be the most high-tech shocks, but they serve a purpose.
