    What shocks for good weight transfer?

    I've tried the search but come up empty. What shocks work good for weight transfer? I have a 98 TA A4 with 2.73 soon to be 3.42, 3200 Vigilante, LCA's, panhard bar, and adjustable torque arm. I dont care about cornering abilities as this is an occasional daily driver and a street tire drag race car. Thanks for any input.

    You want the Hal adjustible shocks from Thunder Racing.

    Strange makes some that work Very well.
    The part #'s for Strange are S-5271 and S-5071.
    You need to check your pinion angle and see where your at.
    Also I would go to the junkyard and pick up a pair of springs from a base model V-6 car. They will aid more than all your other suspension purchases so far.........
    Mark my words on that. I've done at least 60 cars over the years and everyone should a vast improvement.
    Also have you taken off the end links on the front swaybar links.....? That limits front end travel greatly also.
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

    I havent taken off the links from the front swaybar yet, I was going to remove it completely. The v6 springs are a good idea, used to do the same thing 20 years ago, but I hadnt thought of doing it on the TA. The pinion angle is at the stock setting now, where should it be and why. I'm new to setting up this type of suspension. I've always raced cars with leaf springs. I'll check out the Strange shocks.
