The Terrafirma Air shock is super strong 2.5” (66mm) diameter and uses a massive 1.625” (40mm) hard chromed highly polished piston shaft with the latest technology valving and seals. Air shocks are charged with high pressure Nitrogen, factory set at 150psi and adjustable between 100 and 400psi depending on the weight of the vehicle and preferred ride height.
Terrafirma Air shocks are designed to be mounted vertically with the shaft at the bottom for optimum performance. It is possible to fine tune the air shocks performance to very precisely suit a given application by adjusting the oil volume and the Nitrogen pressure. For the Terrafirma air shock we have assumed an average setting based on vehicles ranging between 2000 and 3000kgs. A basic rule of thumb is as follows:
Terrafirma does not offer a mounting kit for the air shocks due to the highly customised applications they are designed for. When building an off road vehicle ensure that the top and bottom mountings are attached to load bearing frame or chassis members, remembering these shocks take the full load of the vehicle in place of a conventional spring.
The amount of travel afforded by these shocks is incredible and care must be taken to ensure brake lines can extend sufficiently and no driveline binding occurs.
