Coil over shock selection

I am finishing my triangulated four bar rear suspension and am now trying to figure out which coil over shock I want to use. I am pretty sure I am going to use QA1s because I found a real good place to buy them. But I can't decide which series.

-Ultra ride: rebound adj only (QA1 tech guy recomended)

-Aluma-matic: non adjustable, but supossedly ride sensitive (let the shock adj itself so I don't have to worry about it)

-Proma Star: compression & rebound adj simultaneously (could be a good thing, could be bad)


The price on all three styles is almost the same so I really don't know what i want. No matter what I pick I'm sure they will be better than a leaf spring.

There are so many damn descisions when it comes to building a hotrod.......................


Thanks,
Jared

Being Lazy

I think myself I would look at the alumamatic series..The adujustable shocks are great and what is needed if one is after the best possible handling..so that is the basic options here..

Really comes down to how important is it to be able to adjust and tune your suspension..

Decisions Decisions....
