    Default 70 Chevelle shorter rear shocks

    The stock length shocks let the springs pop out of the perch when lifting the car by the fame. Looking for shorter extended length shocks. The ones in there now are 20.5" need some about 2" shorter.
    I've got 3" drop springs now.

    Give us a call and we can spec some shorter Vikings.

    Keep in mind we have to put the most emphasis on achieving the proper shock ride height (i.e. where the shock sits when the car is ready to drive, full of fuel, driver in car). When you call, have that number available. Center of upper t-bar to center of bottom bolt hole.

    Another option might be some sort of limiting strap or cable.

    Sounds good, I'll take some measurements this weekend and give you a call next week.
    Thanks

    I had the same problem and got a set of shorter Fox shocks from ridetech.
