Ive read it several times. I can't figure out what im reading wrong. (i must be confused)

The way Im understanding this is that "babyblue" was talking about how high the front sets.

Then "Crime scene" replied that It needs front shocks and that the new shocks would lower the front down once they were replaced.

I'm just not reading something right I guess. Or im ignorant about shocks.

Wink Okay, we're getting a little off the original topic here, but...

Nash, your understanding of shocks is just fine. Crime Scene's comment is in error. The ('sprung') weight of the car is supported by the springs (not the shocks). The 9C1 springs are taller than the SS springs and they cause the front of the SS to sit 'high' (as seen in the photo). You can also do this with 'stiffer' springs of the same height, as they will not 'squat' as much under the same load.

If you took the springs out of the car and just left the shocks in place, the weight of the car would simply collapse the shocks all the way down (you can do this yourself with an old shock). Think of shocks as 'shock/vibration dampeners'. They are called 'shock absorbers' because that is exactly what they do - they 'absorb' the 'shock' - via a piston forcing oil (or gas) from one side of the piston, thru an orifice ('hole') to the other side of the piston.

There is not a shock that will raise a cars ride height after it goes bad. Even 'air ride' ('bags') will simply collapse when they go bad or lose pressure. When you 'bag & drag' a car, the (inflated) air bags press between the frame and the 'axles' raise the car and support its weight. When you want to 'drag' the frame (or the skid pads you've added to the frame - if you're bright) you reduce the air pressure in the bags (or hydraulics) which causes the car to lower down to where it starts dragging.

HTH
