The Builders Series Shocks offer 36 different applications. Each features 30-way adjustable damping along with unique air spring and mounting options for maximum customization.
Bellow vs Sleeve
The Builders Series features three air spring options: a sleeve-style air spring, a compact bellows-style air spring for tighter builds, and a standard bellows-style air spring for heavier builds.
Perfect for the rear of the vehicle, our sleeve style air springs feature a max diameter of 5.1" and a max load capacity of 1,222 lbs. at 100 PSI, which ensures a smooth and comfortable ride.
Our compact option features a max diameter of 5.5" and a max load capacity of up to 1,709 lbs. at 100 PSI to support the front or rear end of most vehicles when clearance AND load are of equal concern.
When weight matters most, our standard option features a max diameter of 6.5" and a max load capacity of up to 2,016 lbs. at 100 PSI to support the front end of most vehicles.
Choose between Trunnion, eye, or stud end options
Each air spring is paired with an adjustable, monotube, threaded-body shock, each available at three different lengths — short, medium, and long.Download Size Chart
Choosing the correct shock length is a critical part of setting up your vehicle for the proper ride quality.

Measure the shock length at ride height
While at ride height, measure the distance between the top and bottom shock mounts. Take the measurement and write this figure down.
Compare to chart and select your shock
Reference the Builders Series size chart and make sure the desired ride height is mid stroke of max and compressed height measurements.
