From Terrafirma:

Originally only seen on mega budget custom built off-road racers, remote reservoir shocks carried a price tag out of reach to all but factory supported teams. Terrafirma Remote Reservoir shocks offer a new level of performance for recreational and hard core off-roaders alike. Terrafirma Remote Reservoir shocks fit directly onto original Land Rover mountings for easy installation and can be adjusted to suit different terrain and activities.

Why remote reservoir? The harder and faster you drive off-road the more heat is generated in your shocks, the temperature increase and the speed at which the shocks are trying to operate causes aeration (foaming) in the oil which leads to the deterioration in the performance of shock absorbers known as fade.

Terrafirma Remote Reservoir shocks have increased oil and nitrogen capacity separated by a floating piston within the remote canister. This prevents the gas mixing with the oil at high temperatures significantly improving performance compared to conventional shocks, massively reducing fade and loss of performance.

With approximately 75% greater oil capacity considerably lower operating temperatures are achieved resulting in exceptional ride quality and endurance. Terrafirma Remote Reservoir shocks can be adjusted by varying the nitrogen pressure using a gassing kit such as TFGASKIT. The shocks are factory set at 100psi for immediate fitment and can be adjusted between 60 and 200psi to suit conditions and driving style. Higher nitrogen pressure will result in increased damping giving a firmer more controlled ride.

Visually these shocks are seriously impressive, mounted to the vehicle effectively upside down, designed specifically to allow reliable routing of the hose and reservoir. As always with Terrafirma the largest possible fully welded pins and eyes are used with natural rubber bushes. Finished with high quality deep silver paint to resist corrosion and including the smart Terrafirma Remote Reservoir shock absorber logo, a bright blue flexible polyurethane gaiter protects the double chromed shaft from stone damage.

Built using race bred valving and similar specifications to the Pro Sport and Extreme shocks including Terrafirma\\\'s massive 20mm double chromed shaft, 40mm piston and 57mm large capacity shock body. Available 2"" (50mm) longer than standard as well as the new super long travel +5"" (125mm) option for extreme off-road use.

As with the Terrafirma Extreme shock the +5"" (125mm) longer Remote Reservoir shock is constructed with pin mountings top and bottom which directly replaces the original front shock. The traditional rear top eye mount on conventional shocks will not accommodate the extreme articulation achieved with the +5"" (125mm) longer 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. The Terrafirma Remote Reservoir shocks are ideal for vehicles whose owners drive on \\\'full attack\\\' mode at all times. Adjustable for rock crawling, cross country and fast road simply by adjusting the nitrogen pressure.
