Use with Competition Engineering New Progressive Wound Coil-Over Springs or Rear Coil-Over Springs for your specific rear-end weight
Sold in pairs
Made in U.S.A.Tech Tip:
To fine tune the amount of weight transfer to the rear suspension for lower ET's, use Competition Engineering 3-Way Adjustable Shocks together with our Rear Drag Race Springs.
Rotate Competition Engineering's Adjustable Drag Shocks' shaft several revolutions with a wrench to free up the internal components before installing the shock in the car for the first time. This will make subsequent tuning adjustments easier.
When mounting rear shocks on a drag race vehicle you want them to be 90 degrees from the axle centerline. On street cars, you can tilt the top of the shocks inboard 5 -10 degrees for better handling.
Before weighing your vehicle, make sure that it is race ready - driver on board, full load of fuel, and the correct amount of ballast added.Q&A:
Q: With three settings to choose from, which one do I start out with?
A: Determining the correct shock setting is a trial and error process. However, knowing the condition of the track surface helps. If the track is slick, you want the shocks to provide maximum weight transfer to the rear tires. A 10/90 front setting extends the shock with little effort, allowing the front end to lift quickly for maximum weight transfer - and traction - to the rear tires. By using a 50/50 setting at the rear, the rear end will "squat" easily which allows more of the car's body weight to get the tires hooked up.
When track conditions are ideal, your goal is to minimize weight transfer. A 20/80 or 40/60 front setting will keep the front end from rising too high, preventing air from getting trapped under the car. At the rear, a 70/30 or 60/40 shock setting requires more force to squat the rear end which will take some bite out of the car.
