SMOOTH SHOCK: Smooth body double adjustable shocks are a good choice when you do. Not want or need the ability to alter your stance. They are available for the front and/or rear. These shocks offer bolt-in performance, and come complete with all mounting hardware. Lightweight aluminum twin-tube design with a sleek clear anodized finish.
Adjustment knobs: Labeled with a "C" for compression and an "R" for rebound with distinctive clicks. There are no dead clicks. That is why all Viking tuning recommendations are from full soft.Other shock brands often recommend tuning from full tight, as often the first 10+ clicks provide no changes to the valving. By not offering non-adjustable or single adjustable, Viking is able to maximize stroke for each body length, ensuring you get the most travel out of your shock or strut. Aluminum, precision machined piston with a deflective disc and a P. Hard chrome plated, centerless ground piston rod (shocks utilize a 5/8" rod; struts utilize a 7/8" rod).
Viking's double adjustable shocks and struts are priced close to the single adjustable price of most other manufacturers. Viking focuses on independently adjustable compression and rebound shocks and struts only, which means a lower price for you! Each shock and strut is hand built, tested, and serialized in our Lakeville, Minnesota factory. TUNING AND ADJUSTMENT INSTRUCTIONS Vehicles used on the street, drag cars, and road racers will all have different needs in terms of shock valving.
However, it does not stop there. Driver style / capability, road / track conditions, vehicle type car vs. , vehicle weight, horsepower, tires, etc. All create different needs in terms of shock valving.That is the beauty of a double adjustable shock. Your Viking shocks have a total of 19 positions (18 clicks plus a zero position) of adjustment per knob, for a total of 361 different valvings. Compression and rebound are independently controlled on the Viking shocks. The "C" knob adjusts compression, while the "R" knob adjusts rebound.
Manually moving a shock is not an accurate testing method for ensuring that shocks are functioning properly. Position zero is the softest setting and is found by turning the knob counterclockwise until the positive stop is located. Position 18 is the stiffest setting. Only very light force is needed to adjust the knobs; do not ever force the knob past its intended stop as doing so will damage the shock. Recommended baseline points for adjusting your Viking shocks are as follows.If extra firm springs are utilized, the compression setting might be set softer and the rebound setting firmer. Drag Racing: Front: 12 - 18 compression; 0 - 4 rebound. Drag Racing: Front: 12 - 18 compression; 0 - 6 rebound (600-900 HP) Rear: 2 - 6 compression; 6 - 12 rebound. Drag Racing: Front: 12 - 18 compression; 2 - 8 rebound (>900 HP) Rear: 2 - 6 compression; 12 - 18 rebound.
