    QA1 Single Adjustable Front & Rear Shock Package

    Anyone have experience with these? My rear shocks are shot and I'm going to replace all four. I am on a budget and these seem pretty good for the money.

    Depends on what you use the car for. Qa1s are typically more of a drag oriented shock

    Well it is a daily driver with the hopes of being more suited to drag racing. These seem better than KYBs, which are very affordable, however I have read that they do not last very long. My question is, am I sacrificing a lot of quality getting these QA1s now, or should I hold off and get some Konis?

    Setups really vary but i wouldn't recommend konis if those are your plans. I would recommend looking into strange shocks as well since it's more of a drag setup you're looking for.

    QA1's are a ton better than they used to be. Their engineering is top notch and a lot of the troubles from 10 yrs ago are gone.

    Send me a mail to ramey@umiperformance.com and I can send you the dyno sheets. We also carry Viking double adjustables which are similar. We sell quite a few of them as well.

    Even though both brands excel at drag, I don't mind using them for handling either...
