Why does the suspension look like i drove over a rock?

I never try to send any one down the same path as me, for the chance of learning something new that i had not thought of. MR Sinister did that for sure.

I'm running drag tubes already and the other problem is my car is heavy! 3860 with me in it.
I don't have the double adj shock. they were to price for my budget. I did buy some Competition Engineering 3 way shock that i have not Yet installed.
As far as coming to high on the converter, you are right. Was trying to get a better 60 foot time.

The other thing, i have notist with these videos, is that the left tire is getting hit/wrinkle sidewall more than the right rear slick.

This is for you both......well any and every one.

Do you think i should set the new shock up initially equally? such as in a 50/50 setting(compression/Rebound). I have 3 settings 30/70 40/60 and 50/50.
Would you stagger the setting from left and right and if so what would you recommend for my first initial setting.

Also i bought some 3 way shock for the front end as well. My choice is 90/10 80/20 and 60/40 I basically have worn out front shock up front right now.

Thanks for all you thoughts so far, Keep then coming.....

I won't speak for screws because he can hold his own, but all 50/50 means is it has the same compression and rebound dampening. A better what to say what it's doing is to use an example of a 90/10 front shock.

All that means is it comes apart 9 times easier than it goes together, or, the extension has 9 times less dampening than the rebound.

Those numbers really mean nothing.

The issue is you need to use the shock to control the motion of the spring, and it's that way for any spring type suspension.

If you can't control the spring in extension and compression (or bump and rebound as I like to say) then you are going to fight your chassis until the cows come home, although I've never learned how long that is.

Like I posted, you are beating the **** out of the tire, and the tire isn't happy about you handing it its *** so it is bouncing back. You control that by slowing down the rebound (more dampening) and slowing down the bump (more dampening. That slows the hit on the tire, and then slows down the tires equal and opposite reaction to getting its brains smashed out.

There is no way a 3 position or 9 way type of shock can do that.

You also need DA shocks for the front end, because what happens up front affects what happens in the rear.

You really need DA shocks on both ends, and then rent the track and spend the day just tuning the chassis.
