TeraFlex – Falcon Series Shocks

Teraflex Falcon Series 3.1 Piggyback Shocks
Original Press Date: November 2016

The Falcon Series 3.1 piggyback shock is designed and engineered to deliver race inspired performance and handling while exclusively built to the specific requirements of the Jeep Wrangler. Vehicle stability is the paramount goal with all Falcon shocks.
For years shocks have been simply ‘adapted’ with minimal tuning and not specifically designed for an application. Falcon Shocks changes that mentality. The Falcon Series 3 Piggyback shocks are corner specific, built from the ground up, and deliver the best damping characteristics possible with fitment and function outlining the highest priorities. A lengthy and painstaking development process has finally delivered these new advancements to a waiting Jeep market.
The front shock features a unique piggyback design with the reservoir positioned horizontally to increase clearance with large tires during articulation and turning. An offset upper stud positions the shock body away from the frame for maximum clearance.
The rear shock positions the body and reservoir at the bottom to eliminate shaft damage from rocks kicked up by the tires. The outboard mounting increases clearance for lifted vehicles with raised track bar brackets. 
Falcon shocks feature Lucas Oil full synthetic shock oil for superior performance across all temperatures to reduce shock fade. The proprietary synthetic formula also contains special anti-wear and lubricity agents that produce excellent thermal stability.

Falcon Series 3 shocks are available in different performance levels including adjustable and non adjustable versions.

Choosing the Perfect Lift

Congratulations! You’ve got a new Jeep and now you’re ready to make it a one-of-a-kind custom ride.  Aftermarket suspension, tires, wheels, bumpers, LED lights and more.  With so many available upgrades and custom accessories, almost anything is possible.

We see hundreds of Jeeps every year, and enjoy guiding people as they take their ride through the transition from stock to stud.  Most folks that we see, buy a new Jeep with the intention of using it as a full-time daily driver and part-time off-road warrior; for camping, hunting, fishing, organized off-roading etc.  Sound familiar?

One of the first modifications on their “to do” list is: Raise the ride.  We think of this as a hinge decision that will effect almost every other major upgrade/modification, including tires size, axle upgrades and more.  One of the most common introductory Jeep lifts installed at Axleboy is the 2.5” Teraflex suspension lift.

2.5″ Suspension Lift

The 2.5″ Teraflex Lift is a Good Place to Start

Like we mentioned, the 2.5” Teraflex suspension lift is an introductory lift.  That being said, it offers a modest amount of additional clearance and is capable of tackling many off-road trails without losing the functionality you would expect from a daily driver.  Here are just a few points to consider before deciding on a 2.5″ liftt:

  • It provides enough lift to comfortably fit up to a 35” tire
  • It gives plenty of clearance to tackle most light-medium rated trails
  • Maintains low center of gravity
  • Fewer parts to install help keep costs down
  • Same/one-day installation
  • Excellent ride quality
  • No significant changes to drive line angles

Just A Little Taller With a 3” Lift

Every inch of clearance counts when you are taking the road less traveled…but what about every ½ inch?  Before going for that additional ½ inch of clearance with a 3” lift consider this:

  • Changes in drive line angles may require a new front drive shaft
  • Additional parts involved in the lift amount to higher parts and labor costs
  • Comfortably fits up to a 35” tire
  • Allows for plenty of flex under the wheel well
  • Install may take up to 2 days

Can You Take Me Higher?…Say 4 Inches or More?

4" Long Arm Lift Kit

4″ Long Arm Lift Kit

Do you want to roll with the big dogs and go places that no stock Jeep would ever dream? Going bigger on both lift and tires may be the answer.  With a minimum 4” lift:

  • There is now enough space to fit 37” tires
  • Serious consideration should be given to upgrading both front and rear axles
  • We strongly recommend new front and rear drive shafts
  • Bigger tires will necessitate re-gearing the differential ratios. Proper gearing will give back some of the power that is lost when increasing tire circumference.
  • Significantly more parts (flex arms, brackets, exhaust spacer, etc) increases the overall cost of installation
  • Proper installation may take 3-4 days (actual install time may vary)
  • Be aware that your Jeep will have a higher center of gravity and you may not fit in the parking garage any more
  • Your Jeep will be nearly unstoppable off-road and you’ll be the envy of everyone you work with

We are a fully stocked and qualified Jeep modification shop. In addition to providing access to a huge selection of lift kits, we also do tires, wheels, axles, differentials, bumpers, fenders, recovery gear, LED lights and more.  Be sure to give us a call or stop by the shop before your next mod.

Lifted Jeep

Is a Bigger Jeep Better?

Stock to StudWhen you are trying to decide if a bigger Jeep is really better for you, you are likely to get suggestions and advice from friends, family and other Jeepers.  These are great sources to get the gears turning and once you’ve got a general idea of what you want, come out to Axleboy and talk Jeep.  Our experts are glad to discuss the pros, cons of any project and put together an accurate estimate to turn your dream Jeep into reality.

 

Quite frankly, bigger tires go over bigger rocks.  Bigger engines deliver more power to climb, crawl and roll.  And if you’ve ever been stuck in a ditch, you know just how valuable a good sized winch can be.

Like most things in life, there is a certain amount of trade-off when deciding how you want your jeep to look and ride.  Incidentally, those bigger tires and a bigger engine also create more drag and suck down more gas than similar stock Jeeps…but you didn’t buy a Jeep based on fuel economy.

Ultimately, when the time comes and you find yourself debating whether or not to go big, there’s just one question that could help you reach a definitive conclusion: “How do you see yourself using this vehicle in the future?”

Keep it Stock

Perhaps you’re just looking for something to make you look good on the pavement.  Stock Jeeps generally look good right off the lot and there are several ways to enhance that natural look while customizing it to your personal taste.

The guys at Axleboy can add floodlights, tail-light grills or convert your Jeep to a soft-top.  These are all great ways to customize your ride without going overboard on the budget or losing that classic Jeep look.

Add A Little Lift

If there is any possibility of leaving the pavement then we suggest considering at least a 2-4” lift kit and tires with a thicker wall.  The TeraFlex 2” Budget Boost lift kit is one of the most popular lifts for light off-road activity and we often pair it with a 31×10.50 tire.

This gives your vehicle just a little more ground clearance and enough durability that you won’t have to worry about puncturing the tires when you roll over small rocks and branches.

Wilderness Warrior

If you are a wilderness warrior, spending more time off-road than on the pavement, then bigger is definitely the way to go.  The Axleboy experts know that durable tires, high quality suspension, a winch, tire carrier and custom gears are more than accessories.  They are necessities that you rely on every time you head into the great outdoors.

Whether your style is stock, off-road adventurer or somewhere in between, Axleboy has the parts, the professionals and the experience to make your SUV dreams come true.

When you are ready to customize your Jeep, stop by or call Axleboy at: (636) 939-JEEP and get the job done right.
