Shocks Apart

We had a set of shocks made with two compression tubes and one rebound tube. This gives the shock three different compression settings so it can be flexible at ride height, get stiffer as the suspension compresses, and then ramp up to extremely stiff at full compression, allowing the shock to act as a bumpstop. The single rebound tube offers two separate rebound or extension settings for the shock. This can allow the axle to drop away quickly and then slow before full compression so it doesn’t kick up the back of the vehicle.
