The Race Tech Shock Rebound Separator valve replaces the OEM Shock Shaft Nut with an asymmetric valve that provides a different flow rate in each direction of travel.

The Rebound Separator Valve can be use for both Dirt and Street applications.

On standard shocks, the Low Speed Rebound Adjuster flows the same for compression and rebound. With the stock setup, testing shows that when the lowest speed rebound damping is quick enough to get good traction, the lowest speed compression damping is way too mushy.

  • In Dirt the Rebound Separator Valve solves the vague feeling as well as bottoming on long duration hits like big dips or gullies.
  • For Pavement the Rebound Separator Valves have the added benefit of pitch control (front to back movement during acceleration and braking). This keeps geometry more consistent.
