Fabtech 5" Short Arm System w/ Performance Shocks - 2007-15 Jeep JK 4WD

Utilizing the factory link arm mounts Fabtech offers a 5" Short Arm system that features heavy wall 5/16" thick links with rotational urethane ends for unrestricted movement. These heavy duty links feature adjustable ends to dial in caster and pinion angles. System includes front upper and lower links while the rear receives lower links only. Lift is accomplished with replacement coil springs that have a slightly higher spring rate over factory while retaining flexibility for offroad use. The front Trac Bar is relocated keeping the arc of travel uniform to the drag link angle with included dropped pitman arm. The relationship of the Trac Bar and drag link is critical in providing bump steer free driving. The rear Trac Bar is also relocated keeping the axle located under the vehicle for proper front and rear axle tracking. Fabtech offers heavy duty replacement driveshafts to be used with this system for maximum driveline reliability. Extended length bump stop brackets, sway bar links and brake line brackets finish off this excellent performing system.

Performance Shocks


Fabtech Performance Shocks have been designed to work in conjunction with each of our suspension systems, resulting in superior ride control. Features include high velocity 9-stage valving for excellent dampening capabilities and a closed cell insert to reduce shock fade at high speeds.


  • - Twin Tube Hydraulic Construction
  • - 9/16" Hardened Chrome Piston Rod
  • - 1 3/8" OD Piston
  • - Closed Cell Foam insert
  • - High Flow 9 Stage Valving

Rear Performance Monotube Shocks


Fabtech's Monotube Shock Absorbers feature high pressure nitrogen gas that reduces fade during aggressive offroad driving. The Monotube design allows for a larger piston compared to twin tube shocks with greater cooling efficiencies due to the single wall seamless tubing. An internal free floating dividing piston separates the nitrogen gas from fluid to eliminate foaming and shock fade. Each shock has been pretuned specifically for the vehicle application providing a superior ride quality.


  • - Monotube Construction
  • - Internal Floating Dividing Piston
  • - 14mm Hardened Chrome Piston Rod
  • - 46mm OD Piston
  • - Separated high pressure nitrogen gas
  • - Thick wall seamless tubing
