Sway-A-Way race shocks


I went to ORW (local 4x shop, and they had some hyd/air bumpstops that I asked you guys about earlier. They are much bigger than I thought, 2" dia x about 12" long!
Anyway, my new question is they have Sway-A-Way race shocks, does anyone know anything about these? I was thinking about 2-1/2" dia x 14 or 16" stroke with coilovers. They had Fox & Bilstiens too, but the Sway-A-Away were so much cheaper.

Re: Sway-A-Way race shocks

They have different sizes and options, but the jist is $200 to "how much you got?"
The ones I wanted were $250, 2-1/2" diameter, 18" stroke. You have to buy the springs and spring kit seperate. $100 for the kit, $100 per spring (two required per shock). So basically $1100 a pair.
I'll be sticking with my leafs & bilsteins for now.

Re: Sway-A-Way race shocks

Does ORW do straight axle conversions? I saw a 91' GMC a few months back in 4-Wheel and Off-Road with a straight axle conversion, he had a ORW decal on the side of his truck, he was gettin' lots of air too. Does ORW have a website?

I don't know much about ORW, or any off-road shops. I know they do stuff to trucks tho.
All I have is a # for my local ORW in CA: 858-565-7792
