Smooth Body Shocks are the most simplified style of shocks ADS offers. They are not designed to support the weight of your vehicle, but do provide excellent dampening characteristics. Ride height of the vehicle must be set by existing coils, leaf springs, torsion bars, air bags, or another style of shock. Tuning adjustments include varying the nitrogen pressure, and adjusting the internal piston valving.
ADS Smooth Body Shocks are offered in 2-1/8”, 2-1/2”, and 3.0” body sizes, each in several configurations. Our 2-1/8” Smooth Body Shocks are offered in Emulsion and Remote Reservoir configurations, while our 2-1/2” Smooth Body Shocks are also offered with a Swivel Piggy Back.
