Need Shocks!
« on: January 21, 2016, 08:41:31 PM »
Guys I need some help with buying shocks.  I have an 73 cuda with a D60 (b-body width) with 1.5 relo kit and cal tracs on it.  No mods to the front suspension.  The car has 600-650 hp  and will be true street/strip car as it will see track duty every summer. 

I'm looking at Santuffs and Afco's.  Can you guys recommend what size rear and what size front shocks I will need for a 600hp street/strip application, no I cant go measure myself due to not being co-located with my car (I'm in the military stationed away from my car at this time).  I was hoping someone who already been down this road can share lessons learned and recommend what shocks and what size shocks to buy.  Thanks.

You cant argue that Santhuff are as good as it gets, but for a real street strip car a set of AFCO or Strange will do very well for you
