Q & A

What's in the Box

These aluminum-bodied QA1 Stocker Star Adjustable Rear Shocks bolt right in where your stockers were and give you twelve valving options to tune your ride and features external adjustment with the knob on the outside of the shock.

  • Easy, bolt-in installation
  • Deflective disc valving - increased valving response, control and consistency
  • On-the-car valving adjustment - no more removing shocks to adjust valving, simply turn the knob
  • 5/8” centerless ground, hard chrome plated piston rod - increased durability, eliminates piston rod flex
  • Forged aluminum body - lightweight, stronger than billet
  • Bright anodized body for a show-winning appearance
  • 3-step sealing system - exclusively engineered double lip seal with wiper eliminates seal drag and dirt intrusion
  • Dyno tested and serialized assures consistency in production and performance 
  • Revalveable and rebuildable by QA1 Authorized Service Centers

Why does the T-Bar have a slot and not holes like most shocks ? I own a 71 Chevelle and wish to get QA1 TS801 but have notice that the T-Bar has a slot and instead of holes like my old shocks. Also the hardware that comes with these shocks are the upper bolts and are 9/16" and my car has 1/2". With QA1 having slots instead of holes would it be more likely for the shock to move?

It has slots to fit more applications. Once bolted tightly in place rest assured no movement will occur.
