        That takes care of lateral damping, what's gonna do the up 'n' down?

          Faaaaark, that's a nice looking shock.

              "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

                  Horrible build, I'll come round later to take it off your hands.

                    The steel bodied Bilstein US stuff for trucks and circle track is remarkably cheap. The non remote reservoir circle track shocks work pretty well on road and track cars too.

                      The top mount is hidden above and brings the shock more vertical- this was just a quick snap while walking around.

                      In other new- new 2 stubtech lowered spindles ordered- new steel hubs with 1/2 studs, and new Harrop front brake kit ordered for it- should pull up nicely.

                      Hopefully front airbag mounts and shock mounts will be finished this week- then the chassis will go off to get painted, and diff shortened. Then final assy starts.

                      Front brakes will be the same as this..

                        Sure are- front is non remote res- and was about $100 US ea [emoji15]- rears were a bit more with remote res etc

                          I thought "what the fuck is this guy doing with these shocks?" for a second, then It became clear the top ends weren't mounted so I added the italics.

                          Good to know they are so cheap, are they adjustable?

                              I was going to say watch the mounting angles for the rear shocks. A fair number of people are having issues when they're not mounted as close to verticle, and the mounts aren't inline, as possible. Someguys are just blowing seals while others have had piston shafts bend, although I suspect the combination of weight and speed is the issue with the bending. This isn't just the yank desert guys, the Challenger forum is full of guys with problems with their Bilsteins.
                              I'd also double check the shock travel, both full extension and full compression. Some listed applications are too short so if you use the full travel of your suspension you find the shock acts as the limiter before the suspension limiters do. Pretty disappointing to be honest, especially given the price.
