Default Re: HAL Shock Owners.......

It will be a night and day difference with the drag springs and Hal shocks all the way around. I only have the front Hal struts on my car w/ stock springs all the way around for now. However, I know that Coach normally sets his at 2 in the back and 5 in the front for drag racing. He normally hooks with this setup, but he did have to loosen the fronts up to 3 when he went to the TX Motorplex since he wasn't hooking too well. With the stock springs, I loosen the shocks all the way up at the track since the stock springs aren't near as soft as the drag springs. On the street, I set them at 5.

We carry both the Eibach drag kit and adjustable Hal shocks here at L.G., so give me a call if I can help you out. I totally agree that the power your engine makes can only make you go quicker/faster if you can hook it up. <img border="0" alt="[Burnout]" title="" src="graemlins/burnout.gif" />

Default HAL Shock Owners.......

Looking to get the whole kit. Front struts, drag springs, and rear shocks. What are you setting them at when on the street and track? My car launches good, but up and down, I hear this is the fix. Thanks for info...

street i use 8/9 up front <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="gr_stretch.gif" /> and like 2 in the back.

i didnt bother changing them the last time at the track cause i was hooking and was lazy.

otherwise ive done 8 in the rear and 4 or 5 in the front <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="gr_stretch.gif" /> .

if you cant hook, use less <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="gr_stretch.gif" />

(1-12, 1=all the way loose)

I will run the fronts between 1 and 3.

I run the rears at 4 left/6 right in the beginning but might increase the stiffness if my spotter thinks the car squatted too much.

i run 1 in the fronts and 4 right rear and 3 left rear. netted a 1.72 60 foot on 26x11.5 ET streets.
if the track hooks i move the fronts up to 2 or 3 in the front.
on the street i run 6 out back and 8 up front.
BTW that is with V6 springs in the back and stocks up front.

Right now for the street I got mine set at 6 in the front and 3 in the rear...that seems to work fine...I do like putting them to 2 in the front, nose likes to come up.. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="gr_stretch.gif" />

HAL's made a BIG difference... <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="gr_stretch.gif" />
