I can use any shocks I want in any configuration, as long as there's just one per wheel. I'm building a new car for next year and am looking for opinions on where to start. What manufacturer and ratios do you guys use? I had Pro Shocks on the front of my last car (not sure on the the ratio) and 90/10 RCI's on the rear. I think I'll stick with the 90/10's on the rear, but am open to input. Thanks.

I switched from Afco's to Bilsteins this past year. Huge difference! I'll never go back to the cheap Afco shocks...

I RECENTLY UPGRADED FROM STOCK STYLE SHOCKS TO WELDED BERING I USE PRO SCHOCKS AND IT MADE A BIG CHANGE. ON THE FRONT I USE 78 RF 76 LF WITH ABOUT A 25^ FRONT LEAN ON THE REAR 95 BOTH SIDES FULLY VERTICAL.
WHATCH THE FRONT MOUNT ON THE SPINDAL BY THE TIE ROD AND THE UPPER CONTROL ARM AS WELL AS THE TIRE. I THOUGHT I HAD IT AND AFTER HOT LAPS HAD ALL THE PAINT RUBBED OFF THE RIGHT FRONT. THE SIDEWALL WILL FLEX MORE THAN YOU THINK.
