i am putting new shocks on the car and was thinking about using a welded bearing shock. i can find plenty of info on modified and late model combinations but was wandering what works best for a street stock. am probubly looking at pro shock.
the car is 3100 lb with a track that is a long 1/4 short 3/8 banked clay and is generaly wet with one ruff turn and one smooth. any help would be aprreciated.
i was going to go with the mod setup but was worried about the extra 600 lb.

My car is about the same as yours as far as weight goes. I use the Afco shocks. 1294's on the rear and 1275 and 1276-4 on the front. The 76-4 is a split valve shock that I use for the right front. I really can't tell the difference between it and a 76 (on the track) but nevertheless, I run it anyway.

Try QA-1. They make a good shock and will help on your setup.Some are rebuildable.

You are correct about the added weight being a concern over the modified setup. I would call Pro or AFCO to talk with them about which shocks you should start with. Both companies have excellent tech support.

AFCO Racing - 812.897.0900

Pro Shocks - 770.995.6300

i ran this on my 3300# stock car. Pro shocks.. 7-5's front...and 9-5's rear... also had an easy up shock for the right front... used it only when the track went dry slick... i used these same shocks on my mod too..
