Ford Thunderbird 1968, Drag Race Shock Absorber by Competition Engineering®. Quantity: 1 per Pack. 3-Way Adjustable Drag Shocks are designed to allow the racer to dial-in the race car to meet changing track conditions. Shock valving plays a very important role in the way your car will perform both during initial launch and throughout the quarter mile.The principle behind shock absorber design is to allow the front end of the race car to rise rapidly upon initial launch, creating greater weight transfer and better traction to the rear tires. As the car travels down the track, the front end will gradually descend to its ride height without unloading the rear tires which is a major cause of wheel spin. Rear shocks work in conjunction with front shocks making the transition from initial launch to top end charge as smooth as possible.
Notes: It’s recommended to replace shock or strut in pairs (passenger and driver side at the same time).
- These ratios also represent the percentage of force required to compress and extend the shock unit
- Only this time, the first number is compression and the second extension
- Also adjust by compressing them fully and rotating to the desired setting on the body
- Can be adjusted for changing track conditions by simple compressing and turning the shock
