5 of 5 BJ front air shocks that fit! July 18, 2018
Reviewer: Bob E. from Dennis Port, MA United States  
My Deserter GT, essentially a street dune buggy needed a little adjustability up front. I tried other air shocks that didnt quite work and Im happy to say these fit, no interference and work!

I run a standard BJ front end with 2 1/2 inch drop spindles and get 4+ inches of travel using these shocks.   You might get more without springs, but I have some springs in place.

The bottom mount slid right on the stud, but I had to trim one side of the bottom shock bushing on each shock to gain room for a washer and nut on the mounting stud. It was a quick job with a saws-all but a hack saw would work also. Thats all it needed and it clears the trailing arm just fine.

Pretty simple to install or just like regular shocks. I did mount the shocks with the air nozzle to the rear as that seemed to make sense to me.

They might seem more expensive but for my money, yes theyre worth it because they work.

4 of 5 Replacing a leaking shock April 13, 2015
Reviewer: Bill Freckman from Azle, TX United States  
All in all, these shocks are really good. They fit well and they work to a "T". I don't drive my car daily so I think this set up the one shock that leaked. Maybe a bit of dryness....

5 of 5 It is satisfied. January 11, 2014
Reviewer: Shigehisa Kusano from tachikawa-shi, tokyo Japan  
I cannot use English.
However, it was able to use in comfort.
As it is, a mailing cost is high.
However, since time was not taken but it arrived satisfactorily, I appreciate.
I would like to use in the future.
