    Does anyone have expierience with the double adjustable viking shocks? How would they compare to bilsteins or even the KYB?

    I am looking to replace my monroe airshocks in the back soon and want to get something that is a little more performance oriented. I have KYB gas adjust in the front, however, I like the Idea of adjustability to tune the shock to my liking.

    Anyone got expierience with those shocks?

    So the qa1's are 253$ per shock. The entire front and rear double adjustable viking is 800.

    That's a lot more than the KYB's from Rock Auto.

    Note: KYB does not make rear shocks for Chrysler and Plymouth 1972 thru 1973 c-body cars. They used to but the part # is obsolete. C&P shock is longer than Dodge.

    I have them front and rear on my heap.
    For racing purposes the adjustment is great.
    For street driving seems like overkill.
    Good product so far,
