Q & A

What's in the Box

AFCO Eliminator Twin Tube Adjustable FRONT shocks are built specifically for drag racing. Using advanced onboard diagnostics, AFCO developed the Eliminator Series to precisely control your race car at every point on the track. With the easy-to-use, repeatable "click" settings, this shock will give you unsurpassed traction.

By allowing full control over both compression and rebound forces, Double Adjustable shocks give the tuner the ability to fine tune every aspect of the chassis movement to provide the ultimate in acceleration control and overall driveability. 

  • Lightweight aluminum construction also helps dissipate heat
  • Rebound settings are adjusted via a shaft-mounted knob with 32 clicks
  • Compression settings are adjusted via a body-mounted know with 32 clicks
  • Smooth, Ultra Low Friction rod guide
  • Low resistance allows internals to function to their fullest potential
  • Almost no "stiction" to interfere with putting the power down
  • Coil-over Ready w/ purchase of kit 106-20135D

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. Double adjustable shocks are the ultimate tool in the chassis tuner's arsenal. The double adjustments of both compression and rebound dampening are completely independent - changing the setting of one has no effect on the setting of the other.
  3. Can be used as a coil-over shock with 106-20135D coil-over hardware kit (purchase separate).

SKU-10623
                        

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
