I was wondering what the difference if any was between the Pro WB series (WB74 for example) and the Pro steel shocks (7400 for example). I looked at the rebound and dampening and those are the same. I am unfamiliar with Pro shocks and these type of shocks in general. Used to the street stock type from afco.
Thanks for any help!!

The Pro WB series has bearings welded on each end of the shock. The steel body series has threaded portions on each end of the shock to attach heim joints. Rebound and compression on WB74 and 7400 are the small. The WB is just a more affordable shock for the budget racer. If the welded bearing gets broken off in a wreck, you have to throw the shock away. But, most of the time if the wreck does enough damage to destroy any shock.

Thanks, I had read somewhere that the non WB's were for coil over only, but couldn't figure out why WB's were not since everything was the same on them except for the ends. I picked up a few new Pro steel bodied shocks at a swap meet for $50 before I had heard that. Glad I can use them! Thanks

The shocks are shorter than your normal Pro Shock. Be sure to watch the rebound length if you run them on the front!
