Perfect for my deuce roadster.

July 11, 2015
With the 200 lb. spring, this shock is perfect for my '32 roadster since it is only 2000 lbs and the rear end is so light. Rebound adjustments are easily made for just the right ride quality.
Pros:
  • Clear Instructions
  • High Quality Shock
  • Easy adjustment
Yes, I recommend this product.

You need to determine the weight of the front end of the vehicle. The most accurate way is to weight the front half of the vehicle and select the spring rate that works with the front weight of the vehicle.

Do you have any idea on what the weight of your truck might be in the front ? What type of front suspension does the truck have? Is it a straight axle and how is it located or is it a mustang II IFS. I can give you a rough estimate but it would really help to have more information on your application. It might be best to call our tech line so we can ask a few more questions and we can get you a pretty close spring rate. If you have any further questions call me at Speedway Motors (800)979-0122 ext 6235 or at Sales@SpeedwayMotors.com

Is there an advanatge to mounting this rear coil-over shock at a angle if so what angle is best? Are adjustable shocks the best choice for a street rod? (33 coupe)

Yes there is an advantage to mounting the shocks at an angle. The advantage is that they will stabilize the rear of the car laterally. We suggest that they be mounted at 15 to 20 degrees. Adjustable shocks provide the best ride and handling in street rodding!

In choosing a coil over kit for a particular application and especially during the build process try and use the longest shock possible so it will offer the longest stroke to prevent bottoming out or topping out the shock during suspension travel. Also the longer the shock and spring the lighter the spring rate to handle the same vehicle weight. Try and keep the shock angle less than 20 degrees to avoid loosing the efficiency of the shock and spring. Shocks have suggested mount length which is leaving 50-60 percent of the stroke for compression during suspension travel. If the spring is sized correctly the adjuster ring should be ¼ to 1/3 the way up the threads to achieve mount length at ride height with the weight on the vehicle. There is NOT a book or listing for all the vehicles, options, chassis, etc. available and a little homework and conference time with a tech would be a start in ordering the right length and spring rate.

I'm sorry to say that I don't know what kind of coil overs they use on Fatman suspensions. These shocks are 11" eye to eye mounted length and will work with ½" or 5/8" mounting studs. Take some measurements of your shock mounts and length of shock needed to be sure this will fit.
