    I’m looking into some adjustable shocks for my 64 falcon straight axle car. ( 393” Windsor 4speed stock rear leafs ladder bars 500-600 hp). I’m looking for shock recommendations. Starting with the rear ( I’m getting ready to put a housing floater in) double adjustable would be great but are out of my budget. So single it is I guess. I don’t want to break the bank but I don’t want the cheaper competition Engineering or Lakewood drag shocks as I’m afraid they won’t be effective at my hp level. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    Rancho RS9000, 9 way adjustable. Look them up be length, stroke, and end attachment style needed.
    Calvert Racing sells the same shocks under his Calvert name for use with his Cal-Trac traction bars

    I just updated the title on this thread because I’d also like to see your falcon gasser rear shock mounts for an axle with a floater and ladder bars. Thanks

    I run the CE on the Shaker, set the right rear hard to compress and the left rear hard to extend.
    You may want to look at QA1 or Afco coil over shocks, just don't install the springs.

    I have looked at qa1 and strange shocks. Single adjustable. With the floater I don’t have any lower shock mounts now. Wondering if I’d be better off putting a piece of tubing between the rails for upper shock mounts. The original ones are at to much of an angle to attach to the axle housing.
