Has anyone heard of this or even tried it? If so what are the effects good/bad Also how does it effect forward bite, does it hold up the rear of the car? Any info would be great.

90/10 would be a little extreme. You might want to experiment with something like a 60/40 or 70/30 split valve first.

This is a very confusing subject for some people. It is a 9" 0/0 shock that is sometimes used on a latemodel as a dummy shock to put the coil on when running the lr behind. You leave the normal shock in the normal(forward) position to give better control. THIS IS NOT A 90/10!!! the part #s do look very similar though.

The 90/10 on the left rear actually allows the car to roll way over on the right rear....This would be great for a really, really tacky track where you don't need any left rear bite to get the car off of the turns. The 90 side of the valving lets the left rear come down very slowly but extend very rapidly. When it does this all the weight will shift to the right rear. But it will take a long time down the straight away before it settles down on the left again.... Just another tuning tool.
