Recently we have been speaking a lot about suspension and shock absorbers rather particularly.

In our article from last week, Shock Fade: Why is it important to Look out for?, we took a look into shock fade and the effects it has on the vehicle.

Fluid displacement is used to create the dampening required for stability and a comfortable ride. And as the process continues we see that shock fade occurs. Tiny bubbles then causing the resistance the shock is needed to create to become less and damage the vehicle.

Tough Dog’s foam cell shock absorbers give you the best solution.

This award winning shock bring you the best all rounds performance. The foam cell insert is a micro-cellular foam insert that has gas trapped in the cells. Taking up the space air or nitrogen would normally occupy. This helps to drastically reduce the effects of shock fade, allowing your shocks to perform better for longer, even on the harshest of corrugations.

Features include:

  • Large 41mm internal bore
  • Twin tube design
  • High temperature, all weather oil
  • 18mm, double chrome-plated rod
  • Additional welding on all studs & eyerings
  • Multi stage Velocity Sensitive Valving
  • Rod wiper seal and multi lip seal
  • Hydraulic rebound stop
