    Default Rear shock

    Im going to make my own one for the rear end.Im going to make it so it is transverse mount like the rear spring with two large arms.Im just going to get my local brake and clutch shop to make the friction pads and use a valve spring and bolt to keep the friction.

    look up macsratz.com they make and sell some. all it is, is a adjustable shock that gets its resistance from the tightening of a bolt between washers and the arm. the tighter you tighten the bolt the more the resistance.

    Timbo,
    Can you send some pics of the friction shocks? I like the looks of them, but how do they ride? I'm not seeking a cadillac ride, but I would like some cushion. I'm not as young as I used to be.
    :rolleyes:

    Im running them on my 35. I did take them off the back axle because they bounced alot. But they work great on the front. You can run thicker oil in them and that helps. I like um..:)

    Friction Shocks don't use oil.

    friction shocks, I need to look into that a bit more I think. More pics are always helpful BUT so is a simple forum search.

    Google Larry Grobe's shop at www.voodoolarrykustoms.com
    Larry has a set of friction shocks on his VooDoo Diablo dodge.
    I believe he made them also.
