Default What are you using up front? shocks/struts...90/10??

Well its about time that I do a little more work to the suspension...What are you guys using for drag shocks or struts up front? Competition eng. makes a 90/10 strut for 82-92 cars but dont have one available for our cars yet. Im not sure if 82-92 struts will work with our cars?? I was looking at HALs since they are adjustable but not a true 90/10 as far as I know...90/10 may be more than I need so it would be nice to have an adjustable setup. Lookin for ideas. TIA

-Dave

I use the stock shocks and springs in front and rear of my 98.

Hey, it works.

I havent seen a good (E.T.) return on the high cost of shocks/springs as of yet. That stuff is not cheap.

I had a bent/warped front shock, needed to lower the front end, and could use as much traction as possible because of slippery track.

They are so high I don't know if I would have ever bought them just for a little bit of added traction.

But they are sweet <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="gr_stretch.gif" />
