Rotoflo A2 Billet Shock Absorber A-18015-RT

Rotoflo A2 Billet Shock Absorber A-18015-RT

These beautiful reproduction of the old Rotoflo A2 shocks, make a great addition to any dirt track racer, speedster, or vintage hot rod.

They have been patterned from original Rotoflo shocks but have been upgraded in the following ways. The housing is now billet aluminum, with an oilite bushing around the rotor to prevent the housing from wearing. The rotor end has been machined to accept any of the stock Model A shock arms rather than the original splined arms.

The shocks come in a machined finish so they can easily be polished to a shine or media blasted to give them the look of a cast piece. They have a 4 inch bolt pattern.

They come with a firm 50/50 action great for the street or the track.
