Protect your investment!

Although it is extremely rare that suspension is lost or damaged when a Factory Connection provided Shipping Label is utilized we provide shipping insurance for both inbound and outbound shipments.

  • In the event of a loss – Factory Connection will replace the suspension of "like" condition. (an investigation with the carrier must be completed before the replacement is issued; typically 2-10 business days)
  • In the event of a damage – Factory Connection will replace the damaged part of the component at no charge.*

*Note: Incoming packages must be shipped with appropriate packaging. Should components come without sufficient protection around the components and/or additional fill, Factory Connection is not responsible for any damage that occurs.

Factory Connection packages forks /shocks carefully wrapping and taping each component in bubble wrap and uses additional fill to ensure the components "stay put" and secure in the box during transit. In some cases we may ship additional parts in a separate box.
