Re: VIKING rear DA shock adjustment (for street)

I assume the autocross your talking about is the events with cones marking the course?

67 chevelle malibu / SS/ custom

Currently undergoing a metal work to remove all rust, if I ever get there.

Cant decide on prostreet or cruiser with a 4 speed.

Thanks, but I got the answer right here from the forum 3 weeks ago. Now it's "search-able" for the next guy who misplaces his paperwork.

On that note though, you'd think they would have that info on their site somewhere, but they don't.

As 1.8TTony posted above, the included settings have changed since the originals myself and Marcus have anyway. They're 180 degrees opposite of what works with my car, but they're broken down to HP levels now, it seems.

Gotcha. I still have the Calvert 90/10's on the front, so I had to try and find a somewhat happy medium. With my rears set as yours, it'd definitely not be happy, lol.

Re: VIKING rear DA shock adjustment (for street)

The Viking's have a seem to have a pretty steep initial ramp for the compression so 0-3 clicks will give a significant change in feel. I run 0 comp and 5-8 rebound on all 4 corners for comfort. For handling maybe 5 on the compression. Either way I am still amazed at how much you can change the ride quality by just turning a few knows.
