I have a set of Penske double adjustable shocks and I think the hose is too short on all four. I am sending them to Penske to be fitted with longer hoses and was wondering what would be a good length. Also, where is a good place to mount the canisters? I am sure these questions would have to compliment each other.

Thanks

We have tried many different places to mount the cannisters. Since the Penskes have a shorter line to the cannister the best place we found is the same as Dean's install.

These are pics of double adjustable JRZ's that come with about a 2 ft. long braided line to the cannister. Here's a couple of ideas that make it easy to access and adjust the compression. On both the Penske's and the JRZ's you still have to take off the tire to adjust the rebound which is located near the top of the shock mount.

Are those 8100 series shocks?

I think they are 8700s. You can get the bump can heads 2 different ways: off-axis parallel to the can, or side outlet at 90 degrees from the can. I can get to the rebound adjusters on my front shocks without having to remove the tire. I cut cooling holes at the tops of my fender arches below the hood air extractors. In addition to the primary benefit to brake cooling, they also allow me to SEE the rebound adjusters while my hand goes in below the liners. The rears are still a pain - have to jack the car up and unload the tires to get to them.

Ah. I just noticed the main difference. My shocks are mounted upside down in the front. My reservoir attaches to the top of the shock when installed. I really like where you have the cans located SVS Turbo. I like the accessability. Could you give more details? Length of hose, types of fittings used, etc... How do you have the rears done?

Thanks
