Probably custom made.

Not sure how you could use that much travel?

The air shocks have hydraulic rams in the bottom of them. They are what inspired the one's on Dave Cole's ProMod buggy. Pete also does them in coil overs:
last post on the first page of that link...so it looks like they are custom made air shocks with a hydrauic cylinder incorporated into them...not so sure on how they function though...what controls the hydraulics? is it just some sort of an accumulator set to a higher/lower pressure then the air?
