Falcon Shocks and Steering Stabilizers for Jeep

“High-Value Performance” is the driving force behind our vehicle-specific dampers for Jeeps, trucks, and SUVs. These Jeep-specific shock absorbers deliver increased stability, improved ride quality, and comfort for daily driven vehicles as well as race-inspired performance, handling, and stability for off-road rigs. Our Jeep-specific steering stabilizers deliver a properly weighted steering feel and consistent bi-directional turning for balanced and controlled side-to-side steering response and an equal return to center dynamics.

Follow along with Dennis Wood as he explains the beginnings of Falcon Performance Shocks and the company’s philosophy and engineering processes in this TeraFlex Video.

Historically, universal shock absorbers and steering stabilizers have been adapted to fit many applications with minimal tuning. Falcon Performance Shocks rewrites the book on damper development. These new shock absorbers and steering stabilizers are engineered to meet the unique requirements of the Jeep Wrangler, Wrangler Unlimited, and Gladiator.

Built from the ground up with a focus on fitment and function, Falcon’s corner-specific Series 3 Piggyback and Series 2 Monotube shock absorbers and Jeep-specific Nexus EF 2 steering stabilizers deliver the best damping characteristics possible. After a lengthy and painstaking development process, we have delivered these advanced dampers to the awaiting Jeep market.

Initial tuning begins by driving each vehicle on and off road for two days to set a baseline. Then we daily drive each vehicle for four weeks to look for “holes” in performance. After taking careful notes, we adjust the tuning and test for two more days. We evaluate the revised tune for four more weeks. Each shock absorber system requires 2–6 months of testing and tuning before meeting our performance targets. Our in-house engineers have invested hundreds of hours in shock tuning to deliver optimal results that can be felt in a “seat-of-the-pants” experience.

Falcon’s proprietary Volume Optimized Damping (VOD) features a digressive linear valve to improve vehicle feedback, stability, and control during low-speed, high-speed, and off-road driving. As the piston compresses and rebounds, the valve restricts oil flow creating a damping effect. VOD’s quicker ramp up increases damping volume during low-speed driving as well as reduces shock bottoming at full compression during faster speeds or over uneven terrain. Traditional velocity sensitive shock absorbers react quickly during low-speed driving, causing excessive “head toss” on rough terrain — or even driveways. Conventional damping then firms up during faster shaft speeds resulting in a jarring ride. With Volume Optimized Damping, stability and control are maintained throughout all driving conditions.

Falcon Performance Shocks are proudly designed, engineered, and assembled with domestic and globally sourced components at the Falcon manufacturing facility in West Jordan, Utah.
