Black Ops Shocks

Adapted from technology honed in the NSACAR, F1, and Baja Racing series, we are excited to introduce the Acme Aero Black Ops Shock. The Acme Aero Black Ops Shock is a direct bolt-on replacement for most bungee and spring landing gear systems.

  • Up to 3.5”of travel at the shock which equals 7-9” at the wheel
  • Total system weight 12 lbs.
  • Dual internal fail safe stops for safety
  • 100% serviceability
  • Limited lifetime warranty
  • Tested to endure 5,500 lbs in compression
  • Tested to endure 22,000 lbs. straight line pull
