TeraFlex: New Falcon Shocks!


More information here: https://teraflex.com/shop/category?u...9C%93&q=Falcon

Description

The Falcon Series 3.3 Adjustable Piggyback Shock is designed and engineered to deliver race inspired performance and handling while exclusively built to the specific requirements of the Jeep Wrangler. Vehicle stability is the paramount goal with all Falcon shocks.
For years shocks have been simply ‘adapted’ with minimal tuning and not specifically designed for an application. Falcon Shocks changes that mentality. The Falcon Series 3 Piggyback shocks are corner specific, built from the ground up, and deliver the best damping characteristics possible with fitment and function outlining the highest priorities. A lengthy and painstaking development process has finally delivered these new advancements to a waiting Jeep market.
The front shock features a unique piggyback design with the reservoir positioned horizontally to increase clearance with large tires during articulation and turning. An offset upper stud positions the shock body away from the frame for maximum clearance.
The rear shock positions the body and reservoir at the bottom to eliminate shaft damage from rocks kicked up by the tires. The outboard mounting increases clearance for lifted vehicles with raised track bar brackets.
Falcon shocks feature Lucas Oil full synthetic shock oil for superior performance across all temperatures to reduce shock fade. The proprietary synthetic formula also contains special anti-wear and lubricity agents that produce excellent thermal stability.

Falcon Series 3.3 adjustable piggyback shocks are available in different performance levels including adjutstable and non adjustable versions.

That rear design is terrible, anybody who plays in the rocks will destroy that piggyback reservoir. I think they should go back to the drawing board to get the rears flipped the other way.

The video shows them being dragged over rocks and they held up fairly well but what would they look like 6 months later after multiple wheeling trips.

I had the same thought. There is a big difference between dragging a $130 shock vs dragging a $350+ (guessing) shock.

I'm wondering how the travel on these compares to the shocks they currently sell with their lifts. As far as the rear piggybacks, I can see me smashing those beyond repair fairly quickly. Guess it's a good thing they have a 3 year warranty.

I just watched the other 2 videos. Damn these are nice shocks.
The shaft is freaking HUGE.

@TeraFlex when are these going to be available to purchase? And do you have the extended/compressed lengths available for the 2.5"-3" version?

All Falcons will be released Jan 2017!
Hey guys, great questions about the reservoir built on the bottom instead of the shaft. For one, these shocks are designed to take a hit. The bushing allows some swivel-movement so the body can deflect from larger obstacles without causing damage to the shock. We have also moved the shock outward from the centerline of the jeep towards the tire for more protection and it fits perfectly with jeeps with a raised rear trackbar bracket, where most shocks rub and hit, causing significant damage.
Another major benefit and reason we did the body downward is that the shaft can be easily damaged by rocks and debris kicked up by the front tires and as soon as there is a knick in the shaft or scratches, those pass the seals of the shock every time the shock compresses and extends and can very easily cause premature failure of the shock. Our shaft is tucked up close to the body and protected from these scenarios.
We went the extra mile to give our customers extra protection on the body by having the aluminum body "Type 3 Hard Anodized" which is incredibly hard for superior protection. The thickness of the body cap and the body is also extremely overkilled to take a beating and keep on going, where as if you take a hit to your shaft, you're done. Your shock will start leaking and you will have to send it in for repairs or buy new shocks.
Also, one of our big things is fitting with OEM applications with none to very minimal modification of components to fit, where as some of the bigger shocks with 2.5" bodies require significant modification such as removing or relocating the rear swaybar, aftermarket exhaust, trimming of the factory shock bracket, etc. These are basically a bolt in and go solution with superior performance, will fit from mild to wild builds, and the easiest adjustment that you will actually use (without burning your arm on the exhaust or pulling out a mirror to look up under the jeep to see what setting your adjuster is on). 30 seconds and you can have all your shocks adjusted from street driving and ready to hit the trails. No other shock on the market for the JK offers that. Hope that helps!

For those with great concern, we will be offering a bolt on skid plate that contours the body cap and extends to provide extra protection for the adjusters and will help further protect your investment. Look for more info coming in the next few months.

some of the pricing doesn't look that bad. Pretty competitive with others on the same level. I'll probably be buying the steering stabilizer soon. I need new shocks too, but I can't have everything.
