Do they tighten up over time?

Seems like they'd just get looser....which would be better, right?

Best to have them dynoed once a year. Most compitent chassis shops (drag or oval) have shock dynos.

Alex,
What's a fair ballpark cost I'd be charged?

Ryan, most shops do it for free or coffee.
I have never been charged, although we always take ours to Strange Eng.

Alex,
Do most shops have the "specs" for how the shocks should 'dyno'? Or, do I / can I get the shock specs from the shock manufacturer and take that data with me to the dyno?

Thanks again,,, Ryan

C&E (same as the Summit) will send you the data if you e-mail them Ryan. Most of the chassis guy know where they need to be based on rebound anyway. They are usually testing shocks daily. Especially the oval track guys.
