SHOCK TUNE

TUNED 3.3 FAST ADJUST SHOCKS, KEY BENEFITS

  • 10 compression damping settings with the 3.3 fast adjust knob
  • Internal SP2 free bleed adjustment allows for 2 distinct tune profiles
  • Increase in comfort and vehicle control
  • Enhanced cornering stability
  • Reduced sway and wind buffeting
  • Controls large and small bumps more effectively than factory shocks
  • 100% bolt on with basic tools

Tuned shock absorbers are one of the best bang for the buck upgrades for any vehicle. Proper damping can make or break the ride comfort and vehicle control, and low quality factory units are quickly overwhelmed. Falcon's shocks represent a pinnacle of intelligent deign. Built to our specifications and tune, we've applied everything we've learned over the years of tuning custom and modified vehicles to bring increased levels of comfort, compliance, and control to adventure vans and RV's. With a superior damper, we're able to effectively reduce sway from wind and obstacles, while simultaneously controlling large and small bumps more effectively.

Falcons's 3.3 Fast adjust shocks technical features:

  • 2.3" aluminum body dissipates heat and resists corrosion.
  • Full 2" Damper piston (238% increase over stock)
  • 3/4" diameter hard chromed shaft resists impact and corrosion.
  • High pressure nitrogen charge ensures cavitation free operation

The red 3.3 fast adjust knob combines industry leading adjustment range with intuitive and easy compression adjustment while the shock is installed. Position 1 is the lightest setting, great for blasting down washboard roads or rough city streets. Position 2 is a mid setting with 8 micro adjustments, a great way to dial in the ride and handling setting for daily driver preference. Position 3 is the firmest setting, used for occasional heavy loads or when driving conditions require the most control. The SP2 mode adjust feature is an internal bypass port (free bleed circuit) set during installation. Closing off this port drastically changes the shock rebound and compression characteristics and essentially allows us to put 2 tune profiles into one shock. This setting is chosen when installing the shocks based on vehicle weight and ride preference. The shocks are manufactured as left and right pairs. The 3.3 fast adjust knob is placed in a spot that is easy to see and adjust.

    A couple not obvious things about installing these on a t1n sprinter as opposed to the newer ones

    + On the t1n, the shocks aren't facing out like the newer sprinters, meaning that the fast adjust knob isn't easily accessible from the side. You need to crawl/reach under the van and adjust them. Just fyi
    + The t1n install instructions are confusing. The shocks (esp on a 140"wb) need to be installed with the reservoir facing the front, NO MATTER THE LABELLING. Although it looks like they won't fit at first due to the brake cabling, they do, and if installed with the reservoir facing back, there isn't enough clearence between the reservoir and a floor cross member (at least on the 140"wb t1n) for the shock to compress. The 158"wb has differently places cross members so AFAIK the shocks can be installed either way on the 158"wb t1n.
    + The e2e of these is slightly longer than the distance between the shock mount points (at least on my t1n), even with the axle in the air. This means its necessary to compress the shock for the install. Its very difficult (impossible?) to compress the shock from underneath the van after installing the upper bolt, so what I did was compressed the shock and tied it up to stay compressed with a rolling hitch to enable it to decompress and drop the bolts into place.
    + I put a video of these points and my install on youtube. Its bad quality and vertical but this explanation along with the video could save you a couple of hours on this install: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7-GprQCI4R4&ab_channel=BrutallyHonest

    As far as performance, the 2006 t1n I installed on is new (to me), and although it has "only" 110k miles, the shocks I replaced were the original shocks and completely done. In addition to the van compass rears I installed bilstein b6s up front at the same time. The ride quality is definitely way (!) better than previous but maybe the comparison isnt fair.

    Either way, from my point of view, $1k shocks divided by 10+ years they will hopefully last is a worthwhile upgrade to my van, even if I could have gone bilstein b6s in the rear as well for 750i$h less.

    this thing is exactly what we wanted !

    This April we bought a brand new Mercedez Sprinter 1500 cargo van high roof 144 base 2RWD to conver it to a camper van. we are sick of tired staying at home for a year avoid pandemic.

    Once we got van home, we found out its too hard to ride. my wife almost throw up the first time. its designed to carry cargo not human beings. so we decided upgrade suspension is a must or nobody want ride on it second time.

    I ordered this Falcon 3.3 pair for rear from van compass, backlogged, waited 3 months to arrive, just about we finished 80% of our conversion. parked van on drive way, raised up rear as high as we can, still shock full length is little longer for sprinter 1500. so we use hydraulic jack to shorten it to fit into bolting positions. it takes me and buddy few hours figure out 1 rear, then 2nd rear is 20 mins. trick: raise rear as high as you can so tire axle drop down far then easy to install shock full length, otherwise use something like a hydraulic jack to shorten it (muscle may not be powerful for a brand new shock never compressed).

    then we rushed out test drive, my wife says its a "light and day" difference, 10 times better. Falcon 3.3 is adjustable, our whole weight is about 6500lbs, so setting 2 minor adjust 2 would fit nicely.

    The owner is very nice and honest, not usual shops trying to rip you off, we are very happy with him(name might be Richard as we saw on youtube) , we highly recommend his products. Good man he is !

    Happy camping !

    Smashed it!

    The shocks- the improvement is crazy! I fitted them myself on the drive and I didn't even jack the van up and it was done in 30 mins! Vancompass were awesome from start to finish! They advised against replacing the leaf springs as I planned and it saved me heaps of money! And the ride now is super!!! In comparison to before!! Incredible. upfront I had sumo springs and bilstein b6's and in the rear falcon adjustables...
    I gained about an inch of lift, arriving back to stock height fully converted. No sway and perfect on the highway to!
    Very happy! Cheers
