8 STAGE ADJUSTABLE REMOTE RESERVOIR SHOCKS 8 stage adjustable Remote Reservoir shocks from Terrafirma incorporate all the virtues of the original Remote Reservoir such as its massive 20mm double chromed shaft, Viton oil seal, swivel hose fittings and silicone dust shield. Originally only seen on mega budget custom-built off road racers, adjustable remote reservoir shocks carried a price tag out of reach to all but factory supported teams. Terrafirma 8 Stage Adjustable Remote Reservoir shocks offer a new level of performance for recreational and hard core off roaders alike. Terrafirma 8 Stage Adjustable Remote Reservoir shocks fit directly onto original Land Rover mountings for easy installation and can be adjusted to suit different terrain and activities. Why remote reservoir? The harder and faster you drive off road the more heat is generated in your shocks, the temperature increase and the speed at which the shocks are trying to operate causes aeration (foaming) in the oil which leads to the deterioration in the performance of shock absorbers known as fade. Terrafirma 8 Stage Adjustable Remote Reservoir shocks have increased oil and nitrogen capacity separated by a floating piston within the remote canister. This prevents the gas mixing with the oil at high temperatures significantly improving performance compared to conventional shocks, massively reducing fade and loss of performance. The new larger capacity remote canister now has an 8 stage damping adjuster to allow the driver to adjust the damping characteristics of the shocks according to driving style and vehicle load, The nitrogen pressure is now fixed to suit the high performance of the shocks (no complicated nitrogen valve). Visually these shocks are seriously impressive, mounted to the vehicle effectively upside down, and designed specifically to allow reliable routing of the hose and reservoir. As always with Terrafirma the largest possible fully welded pins and eyes are used with natural rubber bushes. Finished with high quality deep silver paint to resist corrosion and including the smart Terrafirma 8 Stage Adjustable Remote Reservoir shock absorber logo, a bright blue flexible polyurethane gaiter protects the double chromed shaft from stone damage. Built using race bred valving and similar specifications to the Pro Sport and Extreme shocks including Terrafirma’s massive 20mm double chromed shaft, 46mm piston and 52mm large capacity shock body.
