JL 2-Door: Falcon SP2 3.3 Fast Adjust Piggyback Shocks - All 4

Up Down

Falcon SP2 3.3 Fast Adjust Piggyback Shocks

Falcon SP2 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. The new Mode Adjust feature tunes compression and rebound for Soft or Performance settings.

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.

These shocks are great! Put the new shocks on my 2018 Rubicon a couple of weeks ago and have been enjoying the new ride TREMENDOUSLY! OEM shocks were OK, but I felt like I was always riding my bump stops. Dampening was just too soft. I’m not an aggressive driver, but put a couple of adults in the back seat or pack some moderately heavy stuff in the back cargo area and I couldn’t even crawl over a speed bump in my neighborhood without feeling my rear bump stops hitting my frame. And off road, the soft damping rate meant that even slow-rolling over small-to-medium size rocks or ruts would make the jeep feel like a pogo stick. ENTER FALCON 3.3 SP2…. I’ve got a two door Jeep, so the original damping on the original Falcon 3.3 is a little too stiff for my blood. But not the SP2. The ‘soft/cold’ setting is awesome! Just soft enough not to rattle my kidneys when hitting bumps or potholes on the street, but still stiffer than the OEM shocks so they soak up the bumps off-road and ‘settle’ very quickly so I don’t get whiplash or feel like I’m riding a pogo stick. Add that to the extra travel I’m getting with the 2.5-inch Teraflex Spring lift I paired them with, and I never/never hit my bump stops any more – even with grown adults in the back seat. Quick adjust settings on the 3.3’s allow me to dial in a comfy but adequately stiff ride on road and quickly change if for off road. And when I leave the pavement, it doesn’t matter whether I’m slow crawling over rocks or bombing down a rutted trail - I never go pogo; I never hit my bump stops; and I never lose traction. One final thing: BIG shout out to Doug and Paula! Absolutely world-class customer service!
