Guys,

My Aldan shocks have a setting of 1-6 on the rears and 1-11 on the fronts. Is there a typical best setting on these for drag racing events? I don't have the manual for these so I am not sure if the lower number = a softer setting or if these settings are for rebound or compression. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Manny

What happens when they blow out, or how do you know they have blown out?

When i installed mine, one of the fronts blew 20 feet after backing the car out of the garage. apparently this is a known problem...

basically, the adjustable valve is crap and if they'd used a C-clip on it, it wouldn't blow...

but they do.

Mine were set for 3 and 5, but i've adjusted the fronts to 1 and i _seem_ to get better 60 ft times... still working on that, though.

Sorry, the front has both, the rears only have one. On the fronts, are the top knobs the rebound and the bottoms are the compression?
