You want to install custom shocks on your car. Maybe you just want to make a simple change with a single adjustable tube shock or maybe you are going bigger with air suspension or perhaps multi-way adjustable coil-overs. The reality is that each one of these shock solutions needs to be measured a slightly different way to make sure you are getting exactly what you need and to make your car work the best. You cannot simply go on the measurements of old stuff or different shock styles to get it right.
The fun part is that this is an easy process to get correct and because of that, this Ridetech video on the proper procedure for completing the task is very straight ahead. They go through the different shock offerings and how to properly measure them for your car’s application. They also talk about the importance of making sure you get the shock measurements correct to insure the shock has enough stroke to carry your car through normal driving.
Like most everything else, this is not rocket science but it is a critical part of making sure your car goes down the road and around the corners the way you want it to!
