Closeout Inventory Items by Manufacturer:
Racing shock absorbers must be tuned, often called re-valved, to help achieve maximum race car performance. Calculations can be performed based upon specific vehicle data to determine damping forces. Then valving is modified, often testing several builds with a shock absorber dynamometer to closely match predicted values.

For many years Shock Shop recommended the Ohlin's ST44 shock absorber. In the opinion of Shock Shop, it is the most tunable racing shock ever produced by any manufacturer. Shock Shop ceased representation of Ohlin's when, unfortunately, they stopped production of this shock. Soon there after, Penske introduced the 7500DA series of shock which, along with the Penske 8300 series are now the best new shocks permiting tuning to meet the needs of a specific race car.
Shock Shop represented Bilstein, Genesis, Hyperco, Mitchell, Öhlins and Rowley products for many years. However, in an effort to semi-retire, Shock Shop is closing out its inventory of these products and will not be offering additional new product. Certain of their product information will remain on the Shock Shop website indefinitely.

It is intended for anyone who is interested in understanding vehicle dynamics and wanting to improve race car performance. It is meant for both the entry level racer and the more experienced engineer. It includes a copy of Bill Mitchell's WinGeo 3 software limited only in that one can not save a file. Learn about RCE
