These Pedders shock absorbers are for our challenge suspension kit, they are a PIN/PIN fixing and will require our shock mounts to fit them on the front and rear of Land Rovers, they are 11 inch travel (+ 5.5 inch), they come ready assembled with the bushes and our bush isolation washers on each end, (these bush isolation washers are very important to help stop the pin of the shock wearing away, all our shocks come with them ready fitted) see the bush isolation washers in the Shocks and Springs section in my shop .
We recommend you use the Pedders Shocks if you want more of a comfort ride, they are better suited to a standard weight Land Rover or one that is carrying little extra weight.
The valving is softer than the OME Sport but still able to provide very good road manners. If its a heavier Land Rover then we recommend the OME shocks.
These are a quality Australian shock. They are foam cell and totally oil filled, there is no gas to mix or aerate with the oil when subjected to harsh or extreme use, this virtually eliminates shock fade. Because they are foam cell they they do not extend on their own like a gas charged shock will.
Procomp :- A budget shock better suited for use on a lighter weight trialer / offroader. The valving in these is soft, they will give a soft boaty ride on road, not recommended if your Land Rover is a heavier one or used for towing.
Bearmach 11” :- These are priced more like the budget Procomps but they offer better valving and build quality. They are still not recommended if your Land Rover is a heavier one or used for towing but they will give better road manners than the procomps.
Pedders :- These are a quality Australian shock.

The valving is softer than the OME Sport but still able to provide very good road manners.
Old Man Emu Sport :- These have powerful valving which provides very good road manners, even on a heavier Land Rover without Anti Roll Bars fitted. They are available with a medium and firm sport ride. We recommend these for the best road manners but on a Land Rover carrying little extra weigh they do ride a bit hard.
These are the shocks I designed my Challenge Kit around some 20 years ago.
