    Individual Shocks

    Designed to replace OEM Shock Absorbers. Sold Individually

    Shocks are the BRAINS of your suspension! Nothing influences how your car rides and handles more than shock absorbers. If you could pick only one thing to change on your car to get the most overall improvement...upgrade the brains of your suspension…the shocks! It took us 16 years to find shock technology that we felt was worthy of our customers. After engaging the expertise of FOX Racing Shocks, we felt we were able to bring the already crowded shock market a product that was both unique and improved.

    Cutaway Features

    1.) Mono-tube design allows large piston for superior oil control – increases ride quality and handling performance

    2.) 1/2" hardened shaft is precision ground and straightened to a tolerance of .001" inch for increased durability and performance

    3.) Billet end cap with integrated debris wiper to prevent seal damage

    4.) Teflon piston wiper allows consistent piston/bore contact and repeatable performance

    5.) Oversized rod guide improves piston rod stability

    6.) Integral internal bumpstop eliminates extension crashing

     

    7.) Mono-tube bore is cathode anodized for years of wear resistance

    8.) Hard coat external anodizing ensures years of lasting beauty and performance

    9.) Specially contoured composite gas separator cup optimizes dead length and ensures proper nitrogen/oil separation

    10.) Mono-tube design not only optimizes performance, but uses fewer components than a twin tube design. This is superior fluid control in its most simple and efficient form!

    Twin-Tube vs Mono-Tube

    The mono-tube design is the choice of nearly all high end and OEM and extreme performance shock manufacturers. Its main advantage is that a larger piston and a more efficient oil flow path leads to cooler operating temps and more consistent performance in extreme environments.

     

     

    The HQ (handling quality) Series shocks adds rebound adjustment for the driver who wants to tune ride quality AND handling quality to their specific taste. A wide rebound adjustment range allows you to cruise down the road in plush comfort or firm up your suspension for those Saturday morning canyon roads!

    Shock absorbers are, without a doubt, the brains of your suspension. Nothing influences how your car rides and handles more than its shock absorbers. Their primary function is to control the oscillations of your car's suspension spring thereby keeping your tires in contact with the road.

    To best accomplish that objective, RideTech Smooth Body HQ (Handling Quality) Shocks are built on a monotube design. Monotube shocks optimize performance by using fewer internal components than twin tube shocks. The Monotube key advantages are the use of a larger piston, more precise valving & an efficient oil flow path to create cooler operating temperatures & predictably consistent performance respect to damping and reliability in extreme environments. These unique shock absorbers have been more than 16 years in the making, and the technology and overall upgrade they provide will change the ride and handling of your vehicle.

    The HQ Series shock adds rebound adjustment for the driver who wants to tune ride quality and handling quality to their specific taste. A wide rebound adjustment range allows you to cruise down the road in plush comfort or firm up your suspension for those Saturday morning canyon roads!
