Is it really necessary to have double adjustable ( coilovers )shocks on the rear? I know it is nice to be able to adjust the extend and rebound seperately, but for the kind of racing we do wouldn't single adjustable coilovers like the QA1's be sufficient?

But the folks at QA1 tell me they don't make a double adjustable shock.

Jerry,

At your power level and ET you need the double adjustable IMHO.

Strange makes a double adjustable coil-over. Not as much $$$ as Koni. I've never used them, but I had their single adjustables on my 69 and they worked great.

Later,
David Cole
