I understanding moving my pullbar left and right to load each tire, but what happens when you mount the shock left or right of the pullbar? Thanks all for any explanation!

NWModracer is correct about it planting the tire on braking the problem with it is that the other tire will have a tendency to bounce. The shock is there to keep the tires from bouncing when on the brakes. I have seen prople use this to dig in the right rear going in but I have seen cars get tire hop with only 1/8 inch movement. You MUST also keep the shock straight in line with the chassis. The chassis where the guy was adjusting it had two bars straight up and down about 10 inches apart in the center of the chassis. The mount for the shock was on a tube running across these and mounted to weight clamps so it can go up/down and side to side.
