Tip Of The Week: Energy Shot Shock Guards

Tip Of The Week: Energy Shot Shock Guards


I have found that empty energy shot bottles make great shock protectors for off-road vehicles.  I cut the bottles in half lengthwise and drill a small hole through the neck of the bottle.  Then I use the lower shock mounting screw to attach it to the control arm.  This keeps my shocks cleaner and also protects the shock shafts from getting damaged.
