Shock Shop is Retired!!
Closeout Sale Items by Manufacturer:
Racing and street high performance shock absorbers must be tuned, often called re-valved, to achieve maximum performance. For many vehicles, calculations must be performed based upon specific vehicle data to determine damping forces. Then valving is modified, often testing several builds with our shock absorber dynamometer, to closely match predicted values. Read more here: SHOCK SELECTION & TUNING
Shock Shop customers have won numerous series and national championships and always find a significant improvement in lap times with properly tuned shocks. By utilizing the shock absorbers to help minimize tire force variation, higher cornering speeds and ability to get power down earlier coming out of corners results in faster lap times. In some racing series it may be necessary to utilize the shocks to control the sprung mass weight transfer to achieve a needed handling characteristic but this should be used as little as possible. In either case, proper shock tuning makes a big difference!
