Is it possible that the same shocks can work for drag and road course?

Just a quick heads up... I just ordered a pair of front coil overs from CCP( 11/28/16) I spoke with an employee who noted that if you buy the single adjustment shocks...they will ship you the dual adjustment. No additional cost. I guess they are no longer carrying single adjustment. I paid for single adjustment and received the dual adjustment as promised. Might save you a few bucks...if they are still doing it.

the single they offer is a QA1 shock and its about the same price give or take 30dlls , Viking only offers a double adjustable shock so they can stay competitive and cheaper. My guess is viking is outselling the QA1 so they removed the single since its just not any cheaper then the double. Good to know with shipping mine were 60dlls more, its a nice chuck of change if its true.

Yes if that are DA ad mentioned. With the viking Crusader ones, you can adjust the rebound and compression independently. 19 compression settings and rebound 22 settings.
Also the valving can be changed for even more tuning.

But remember this is only one part of the chassis setup and everything needs to wok together.

I have Opentracker Racing Roller, UCA and LCA's along with Spring perches. The spring perches come out and the bottom of the coil over assembly bolts right to the UCA. The top of the spring sits in the shock tower pocket like stock springs. Both ends of the assembly are roller bearings.

As a side note, I will be selling my current front Viking Crusader shocks that have less than 300 miles and 50 1/4 mile passes.

Just installed these on mine a few weeks ago. Everything went smooth as noted by others. Haven't driven on them yet so I can't comment on that. There's a few pics on my build thread. Look up 67 mustang restomod build

Yes i installed them alredy. Its probably the easiest suspensions component i ever installed, the only hard part was getting the snaprings to seat in the bushings.
