Air Shocks

This is my opinion of them and only my opinion:

They are expensive.
Difficult to adjust.
Have to have a bottle of nitrogen and the setup.
They react very strange. Drove up a wall and the front spring compressed all the way, the rear air shock kept extending more instead of compressing.

I'm gonna take them wheeling this coming weekend and see what I think, as of right now I'm not very happy with them. I couldve went with coil springs for considerably lower cost and been more reliable.

I just want something that is reliable and that I can jump in and wheel at a moments notice.

Besides the fact of more money, what about coilovers???

I have heard good things about coilovers, but I can't justify that kind of money. It would cost about $2200 to put them all the way around a buggy.

hmmm

I saw the air shocks on Ruttdigger's rig work and they were fantastic and now TX_ZUKI is having good luck with them. Clint, your rig is heavier than theirs so that makes me wonder if that fact is making the air shocks act different on your rig? Maybe a little adjustment trial and error correction will get it right. Benji, bring your rig to Nocona this weekend so we can see it!

Air shocks arent for people who are impatient. They take a little while to get tuned in.
