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.
