Here is a set of 4 lift shocks that will work with pretty much any brand lift kits or springs. They are for lift kits ranging in size from 3 inch up to 8 inches of lift. These are brand new UCL shocks that come with a lifetime warranty against manufacturer defects.


Longer shocks designed for your Caprice platform

Extended lift shocks are longer than stock and are used in lifted car applications in replacement of OEM stock shock absorbers. UCL gas charged lift shocks for Impala, Caprice  and other B Body platform cars have a better dampening rate than stock. They also have increased travel. This will prevent your shock absorber from bottoming out when lifted.


Great ride quality when used with a lifted application

Lifted shock absorbers reduce the effects of traveling over rough pavement which leads to improved ride quality and car handling. The shock’s main purpose is to dampen spring oscillations. It also is used at times to limit excessive suspension movement. These lift shocks are of a gas charged twin tube design. They use a low pressure charge of nitrogen gas in the reserve tube to reduce foaming and aeration, commonly found in worn out older vehicle shocks.


Heavy duty construction for years of use

Specially designed reservoir tubes are stronger than OEM and provide increased stability for the hardened piston shaft assembly. An effective wheel bounce damping reduction is noticed, resulting in a smoother ride quality. The special design of the hydraulic piston absorbs and dissipates vibration.


Notes about this application

Note: Extended shocks do not raise your ride height. In order to accomplish this, you will need to install a lift kit. UCL has both lift springs and lift cups that work great with these shocks.
