Falcon JKU SERIES 3.3 FAST ADJUST PIGGYBACK SHOCK ABSORBERS feature a three-position Fast Adjust Knob to change the damping settings from soft (1) to firm (3), while the middle setting (2) incorporates an eight-position Micro Adjust Dial for more precise tuning between soft and firm.

Designed specifically to meet the unique requirements of the Jeep Wrangler, Falcon Shocks have engineered Jeep-specific shock absorbers that deliver increased stability, improved ride quality, and comfort for daily driven Jeeps as well as race-inspired off-road performance, handling, and stability.

Historically, universal shock absorbers have been adapted to fit many applications with minimal tuning. Falcon Shocks rewrites the book on shock absorber development.

Built from the ground up with a focus on fitment and function, our Falcon JK / JKU SERIES 2 MONOTUBE SHOCK ABSORBERS and corner-specific Falcon JK / JKU & TJ / LJ SERIES 3 PIGGYBACK SHOCK ABSORBERS deliver the best damping characteristics possible.

After a lengthy and painstaking development process, we have delivered these advanced shocks to the awaiting Jeep market.

VOLUME OPTIMIZED DAMPING

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 speeds resulting in a jarring ride.

Falcon’s proprietary Volume Optimized Damping (VOD) features a digressive linear valve that produces quicker ramp up for increased damping volume, which improves vehicle feedback and control during low-speed driving. VOD also improves the shock absorber’s ability to reduce bottoming out at full compression during faster speeds or over uneven terrain.

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.
