    Has anyone done the rear air shock if so how is the ride compared to ncy low boy or a 11" shock. Ive been on chuckus life and have found the number for the shock it is acually 70's model corvette shocks

    • I'm the one who put the vet shock tutorial on the website.

    • Yeah i was talking to my lift repair man at the shop today and his opinion on running just the air cylinder is it is only there to adjust ride height and wouldnt dampen the road like the air shocks wood

    • Yes i was trying to tag you but couldnt. Lol

    • Have to put @ symbol before name too tag someone in the group you're not friends with.

    • I work next to napa and after 30 mins or goinh over part number he was like "boy aint you looking for the shorty vet shocks. Boy i had them on my harley before you was born" lmao

    • Haha! Yeah it's the Monroe shock

    • I jusy did a 150 swap and im still riding with the stock shock lmao. I had to compress it about a inch just to get the bolts in. And it bounces and bottoms out smh so its either 120 for 10" ncy or the air shock for 54 and i get two shocks. One to install and the other save for later

    • The air cylinder is just that no shock to absorb the bumps in the road.

    • No air in either and you are at full comoressed. Like having a hard tail. Have enough psi in the shock to alow suspension travel

    • Really you deleted your comment. Y?

    • The ride is so much better than a shock

    • Ill be ordering them in the morning

    • I decided to stay out of this convo after I posted. My tutorials up. Seem to be going towards Garzas air setup. No worries tried to get to it after I read the rest sorry

    • So you getting the cylinder or the air shock

    • The air shocks

    • They only come as a pair. Only $59 from napa. With lines too. Sunday im going to goto local junk yard and get a air compressor off a expedition or town car. Lol. Ill post picks

    • Let me get the part number for the shocks when you get them. I have a compressor already. Just haven't got the shocks yet

    • I have them at work. Ill post them tomorrow.

    • Sweet

    • Fully compressed they are 9.5" and extended to 14"

    • I figured 10.5 to 11 is enough to have a nice ride without the bounce and bottom out i have now.

    • Sounds right

    • Actually an air cylinder has plenty of give to absorb bumps. Just have to find the sweet spot and ride...

    • The air cylinder doesnt have fluid dynamics to absorb a sharp jolt. Yeah it has air that is being compressed to give a cushioned ride but no rebound effect like a shock absorber does.

    • You come on here asking for advice and now all of a sudden you're an expert in air suspension? For the record, yes a cylinder absorb bumps. No, it doesn't feel like a hard tail.

    • Wow dude im so shocked that youre saying the vette shocks dont have fluid in them. The air in comressed in a diaphragm between the top mount and the lower shock housing. And in the shock hoising is viscus fluids that have specific compression and rebound rates. Go read a book if you dont think so. Ive already passed ase master certifications. Never is i ask for advise. I asked for a comparison of ride quality. So dont get your panties in a bunch. Air suspension is the same design and functionality as a vehical. Of yeah they are corvette shocks. Hmmm

    • My air cylinder still doesn't feel like a hard tail, regardless or fluid or not...

    • Ol dude said no air and they would still have a bounce. Then deleted after i posted that with no psi it would be like a hard tail

    • See in same comment i said have enough psi to keep travel in it

    • An air shock with zero psi is going to ride like a log wagon also...

    • Yeah it would

    • No air in either one would feel like a hard tail.

    • No I meant with air it would bounce. And with no air it would hard tail. With air it has a spring pushing back so it actually does bounce when you hit something

    • I'm too damn high to sit here and bicker about air suspensions... Both work, end of story.

    • Yep

    • Tony Roach here it is.

    • Gotcha. So an adapter needs to be made. Problem for me is I don't want one shock. I wanna keep dual.

    • You probly can just make a mounting adapter for the swingarm. It comes as a pair for $59. You cant beat that

    • This can be used single side shock? No isses? I need to read that tutorial...

    • Wil Edwins hit up Jeff Silvers he's local to us and rides on his own air setup. Also does awesome fab work!

    • Yeah it can thats what im doing.

    • Let me know how it works out maybe I'll buy the other shock from you if you want to sell it

    • I will. Ill be posting the install on here too. Ill be using a ford expedition air pump. Going for a cheaper route than buying the $600 kit from dirty air suspension.
