On a pro stock mount adjustable front shock for a metric car,is there any way to really tell where you are on the adjustments?I can't really tell by just working the shock in and out.they came on our new car and i want them just at 50/50 setting.And according to the info there is 9 setting but only 3 spots marked on the shock,so does that mean their is 3 sets for each marked spot??

Call the tech guys at either ProShocks or Speedway, they could probably help ya out.

Called Pro Shocks and there is really only 3 adjustments when the marks line up on the 3 marks on the body.So the middle is 50/50.

I made the mistake when building our purestock to get the adjustable PRO shocks.My thought was to get an edge on makeing needed adjustments.We have the same problem you described.....cant ever tell what adjustment you are set on.Didnt think three small adjustments would make such a diffrence but o boy they are.Am planning to replace them as soon as i get the chance.I suggest you TRASH them!

I bought a rear adjustable SS Pro last year, couldn't reach confidence in which setting was which, called them - got the runaround, emailed them, never got a response. That was the last PRO shock I will buy. If I find that PRO is owned by someone else, I will not buy THEIR stuff. If I find the PRO owns someone, I will not buy THEIR stuff. The only leverage a racer has is his pocketbook.

I had a set of them also and didnt care for having to question if setting was correct.wound up buying a set os bilstiens and they are like night and day compared to any thing else out there.They dont fade even in the roughest track conditions In my opinion they are the perfect shocks for a 3000-3500 pound car.
