Fabtech Shocks

The year was 1989 and the place was Chino, California.  A small fabricating shop began making “built to order” performance suspension systems for Prerunners and Race Trucks.  That shop grew into today’s Fabtech, a respected industry leader in both suspension systems and accessories for off-road enthusiasts all over the world.  Everything they make is designed and manufactured in the United States, handcrafted by Fabtech employees.  You won’t find sub-contracted components in any Fabtech products.  Their Research and Development and Manufacturing facility is state of the art, using CNC (Computerized Numerical Control) lasers, lathes, and welders.

If you’re looking for shocks for your car, you’ve come to the wrong place.  Fabtech is in the serious off-road market, with shocks and accessories for the big names in light trucks and SUVs, from Toyota and Nissan, to Ford, Chevrolet, GMC, Dodge, and even to Hummer.  They also have a full line of suspension shocks and systems for popular UTVs (Utility Terrain Vehicles) including the Kawaski Teryx, the Polaris, the Arctic, and the legendary Yamaha Rhino.

For Trucks, and SUVs, their line of Dirt Shocks and accompanying suspension systems give superior handling and performance both on and off road, in either 2 wheel drive or 4 wheel drive applications.  The Dirt Shock 4.0 features nitrogen charged monotube in a coil over design.  They are adjustable and can even be taken apart for further fine tuning.  They come in smaller body sizes, from 2.5 to 2.25 to 2.0.  You can add Fabtech steering stabilizer systems complete with mounting brackets to any of these and bump stops to the 2.25, 2.5, and 4.0 shocks.  Finally, they offer a 2.0 shock with reservoir, made exclusively for the Yamaha Rhino.  Dirt Shocks are available for other UTVs as well.

Fabtech performance shocks use a twin tube design and can be used with both OEM suspension systems and Fabtech’s high performance single and dual stabilizer systems.  For select vehicles they are also available in a coil over configuration.  The Fabtech web site at fabtechmotorsports.com has an exhaustive application guide where you can find what’s right for your vehicle.

Finally, Fabtech offers some versatile and practical accessories for off-road vehicles, including bumper mounted desert guards.  Mounting varies by vehicle but all of their guards can accommodate two 6” auxiliary lights, a huge plus for night time off roading.  They also offer angled and flat stop spare tire mounts, shock boots, and a whole bunch of other interesting stuff, like brake line extension kits and ball joint spacers, to name just a few.
