The RockSport Remote Reservoir Black shocks are specifically made to work with MetalCloak True Dual-Rate Coils; the Digressive valving provide the best of [click for more...] slow and fast speed performance.

Shocks are made with 2.5 diameter, 3/16 thick wall aluminum with a huge interior for fluid to ensure they stay cool and hold up to on and off-road abuse.

The Remote reservoir connects to the shock with a 3000psi high working pressure, stainless-steel braided, synthetic lined reservoir hose, with optimized flow orifices to allow unhindered shock oil flow.

Unique valve stack with Parabolic shim-form (multiple patents pending) provides a compact and simplified valve assembly that eliminates shim stack problems of conventional methods, allowing for our exacting target numbers to be achieved.

Our completed package allows for maximum shaft length to be utilized and provides more travel than any similar size Monotube shock; even the internals of the end caps are machined out for additional travel.

Functional Type III Military grade HARD Anodize process is used on the shock piston to keep the assembly from wearing down from the high velocity fluid transfer, ensuring a long lasting service life.

Oversized 7/8" hard chrome plated shafts, induction hardened to Rockwell C 60+, exceeding most competitors in durability and can take a beating over and over providing the BEST protection from rock debris; this allows a constantly smooth surface for seals and wiper to ride on.

A triple seal pack keeps shock oil in and contaminants out. Removable Bump Cap protects the seal assembly from full compression damage and provides access for servicing the shock.

Large, easy to grip billet knob with laser marked numbers allow you to change the compression setting simply; choose from 8 settings that add an additional 15% compression force at each click to tune in your Gold Standard. Dial in your off-road comfort along with great daily driving performance.

Shock attaches with built-in off set mounts that allow for long travel capabilities with the convenience of an OE like fitment.

The RockSport Black Shocks come with a 1/8", Laser Cut, gold zinc finished reservoir mount.

The shocks come with a gold zinced lower shock mount that is engineered to move the lower shock mounting location away from the Jeeps frame rails for added clearance - saving your shocks in the process. The lower shock mount is made of 3/16" hot rolled steel and is laser cut and CNC formed for perfect fitment.

RockSport Black Reservoir Shocks provide a high end shock with adjustable compression settings allowing you to dial in your Jeeps ride for fantastic performance with a comfortable yet stable compression and rebound cycle for Rock Crawling, Overlanding, Daily Driving or “spirited” off-road navigation (wink).

Note: RockSport Black Shocks are LARGE BODIED 2.5 diameter long-travel shocks. These are a Direct fitment for wide track axle Jeeps like Rubicon and Max tow. All 2.5 in diameter shocks will require additional modification for “proper” fitment if used on standard-width axle models; additional bump stops, low back spaced wheels, brake caliper clearance, etc. If you are unsure of fitment or what axle you have please give us a call.

Parabolic Valving

Parabolic Valving

Parabolic valving (multiple patents pending) provide precision fluid flow in a minimal sized piston stack. Machined parabolic forms contour the butterfly valve shims when under fluid pressure; the shape is contoured to allow variable resistance depending on force-loads allowing an extremely refined tune.

Piston Compression Ports

The smooth bore, multi-ported piston uses a total of 9 ports to produce an even force-load to the butterfly valve shims; 6 for compression and 3 for rebound that ensure longevity and optimal performance. The Shock Piston is finished with functional Type III Mil-Spec Clear HARD Anodize.
