i liked the slam bags that were in the front to begin with, but the customer didnt like the way it rode, i suggested a simple cheap fix, and that was adding a shock, but he just sold his other 66 drop, and decided to blow some money on this one, so bought all the tubular control arms with shockwaves, new weatherstripping, and new chrome and is having car repainted after its done with me, paint is a little blotchy and has alot of dry spots.

but i had to warn him about the shockwaves, so now we will see how long they last.

Is that true? You can't ride up or down on Shockwaves? How come?

they are setup like a coilover shock sorta... low or high ride hieght maxes or bottoms em out QUICK..

they are designed to be driven at a specific ride hieght (middle of the travel or so)

also, if bottomd out or maxed out, ART wont warranty them :mad:
