there are alot of factors that can affect your decision on witch shocks to run .
one thing too watchout for though is too have ageneral set up [springs,wedge,ect.]that is right ,because a shock change can mask an underlying chassis problem.
That being said ,a nice thing about shocks[you may already know this] is they will only affect the car in one area, were a spring will affect it all over ,ie carloose in stifen right rear shock will tighten car getting in and not affect car off the corner,were if you stiffen the right rear spring to tighten the car it will loosen it up off the corner .
But generaly speaking a softer shock pacage is better for a smooth slick track and stiffer are better for tacky tracks.
