The challenge to conquer the largest rocks and deepest ruts is hugely appealing to hard-core Land Rover drivers. Whether you’re in competition or just driving for fun keeping the tyres in contact with the ground and the vehicle stable is crucial to successfully mastering the roughest terrain. Long travel suspension is not new, however achieving great performance, control and reliability is more than just fitting any old long travel shocks.
Built to exactly the same tough specifications as the Pro Sport shocks including velocity sensitive valving, huge 20mm shaft, 40mm piston and fully welded mounts. The main difference is that the Terrafirma Extreme LT shock is a massive 5” (125mm) longer than standard. Amazingly the Extreme shocks share the same high quality ride and handling on the road yet allow enormous wheel travel when off road.
Specific valving has been developed to allow the same shock to be used front and rear giving bump killing performance and unrivalled strength and flexibility in the serious rough stuff.
The Terrafirma Extreme shock is constructed with pin mountings top and bottom which directly replaces the original front shock. The traditional rear top eye mount on the All Terrain and Pro Sport shocks however will not accommodate the extreme articulation achieved with the Extreme shocks. To enable a rear pin top mount shock to be fitted requires a special mounting kit TF519. The kit comprises a pair of brackets and all necessary nuts and bolts.
