Afco makes a pullbar now that the spring works both ways during torque and on braking. So this would eliminate the shock!

the damper shock is angled up to the frame, while the pullbar is angled down. even a double sprung pullbar will not accomplish the same effect as the damper shock.

Dan, which tire are you on? With the Hoosiers we don't use a damper shock at all. With Amer. Racers we only use the damper shock to tighten entry on a dry slick. I use an Afco springbar for the pullbar.

How short of a pullbar are you talking? 20" long, maybe?

thanks for replies im on hoosiers we are now amra sanctioned trackfast 1/2 mile A,D,H 40's as for length of pullbar i'm open for suggestion i only have the shock mount so im gonna build the mount for the front of pull bar my car has 2 bars that start at the shock mount and go at angles to left and right side of car i was thinking of finding the angle i need for the bar and welding a piece of 2x2 horizontal from one bar to the other and finding a 4 hole mount that i could put on the 2x2 and could slide it left to right and use the holes to change bar angles. any thoughts on were to find this type of mount or is this not gonna work.
