Falcon Series 3.3 Fast Adjust Piggyback Shocks

Falcon Series 3.3 Fast Adjust Piggyback Shocks offer a wide range of adjustability with their easy to use three-position Fast Adjust Knob. Settings include soft, medium, and firm. The middle setting incorporates an eight-position Micro Adjust Dial for more precise tuning between soft and firm.

Volume Optimized Damping

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 History:

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 Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited.

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.

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 Wrangler-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.

For anyone considering purchasing the Falcon 3.3 Shocks, I simply have one piece of advice, DO IT! They will not disappoint. I have the AEV Dualsport 2.5 lift installed on my JK Unlimited for around 6 months now but something wasn’t quite right with the ride. That is where the Falcon 3.3’s come in. This is how a kit is supposed to ride out of the box. By far the best riding shock I have ever had the opportunity to install and ride on. They perform both on road and off so even your mall crawler will thank you when you run over the speed bumps trying to beat the Prius to get that elusive first row parking spot at the next big sale at the local mall. I tried them on settings 1 and 3 first that are pre-set from Falcon and it was an immediate improvement over the Bilsteins that I was used to riding on but I wanted more control. The 2nd setting that allows you to dial in even more is where I found myself making the most improvements to ride quality. Even making a single adjustment on the dial is noticeable on and off road. My perfect setting is with the selector switch in the 2nd position and the dial in the 5th position and it’s like riding on pillows going down the road. I would dare to compare it to many of the luxury brands out there and dare say that it will ride better. I truly believe that these shocks should come with EVERY lift kit on the market as a standard option. You guys nailed it and I would give it 7 out of 5 stars.
