Q & A

What's in the Box

AFCO Single Adjustable Monotube FRONT shocks are an economical alternative to the fully double adjustable design. The single adjustable gives you the ability to adjust rebound dampening control without affecting the compression dampening characteristics of the shock. Plus, with AFCO's exclusive "BNC" valving, these shocks eliminate bounce caused by the impact after a wheel stand.

  • Quicker R.T.'s
  • Gas Mono-tube design for superior tuning and performance
  • Rebound adjustable only - will not bleed over to compression
  • BNC Valving eliminates front end bounce
  • Can be upgraded to a coil-over shock
  • 100% co-Tested and Serial Numbered
  • Body Mount:  1/2" I.D. Bearing (1.06" wide)
  • Shaft Mount:  9/16" Stud (3-1/8" length, 1-1/8" threads, 1-3/4" washers)

Fits 1962-1967 Chevy II Nova. (May need to "slot" tie bar mount.)

Notes

  1. The rebound adjustment is the most critical in tuning a drag racing set-up. This adjustment allows the tuner to dial in the "un-loading action" of the chassis and keep the tires planted during the critical first 60' down the track.
  2. Can be used as a coil-over shock with 106-20135D coil-over hardware kit (purchase separate).

There's a lot riding on your springs-literally. Springs are your car's connection to the ground, and their performance is directly related to all other suspension components. Inconsistent, weak springs can cause a multitude of handling problems, and in some cases, dangerous situations. When it comes to choosing coil springs there are many alternatives, but if you want the best you can get, the choice is clear: choose Afcoils. 

All Afcoils carry a lifetime warranty to remain within 2% of the original nominal free height. Choose your length and rate. 

  • Machine-ground on both ends to tolerances within 1 degree
  • Pressed to solid height and "pre-set" - eliminates potential for additional set
  • Optimized material thickness and coil spacing
  • Made of super-high tensile strength chrome silicon wire for long life and and a consistent rate
  • All springs are cold wound on the latest automated coiling equipment and heat treated twice during manufacturing to be able to withstand even the most abusive conditions
  • To further enhance durability, Afcoils are shot-peened and coated with a durable yellow finish
