Are you unhappy with your short shaft? Why settle? Upgrade that shaft to a full 9 inches!
is proud to offer this "Build-Your-Own" option for Viking Performance
9" Stroke Shocks and Coilovers. Many times we find that people have
issues selecting the proper shock for their project, we are here to make
it easy! All you need to do is select the bushing style you want (Poly
or Bearing), and your valving. We do the rest!RIDE HEIGHT RANGE MEASUREMENT
This is a very
crucial specification, please acquire the accurate measurement *AT YOUR DESIRED RIDE HEIGHT
of the top centerline to the bottom centerline of your upper and lower
shock mounts. If you have a dedicated racecar and have a specific style
suspension system, the following will help:If
you have a very customized setup and have specific geometry that makes
the suspension SEPARATE OR SQUAT then you need to consider the following
information for your application.
See chart highlighted below for full shock travel information
(compressed and extended lengths). Example, if your ride height is 16"
and you have a rear suspension that separates 4" when launching...you do
not want to get a shock that sits in the middle of its stroke, as you
will top the shock out and have traction problems. In this case you
would want to have 1-2" of shaft showing at ride height and the 5+" in
the shaft ready to extend. So you would use say, a C315/316 shock with a
14.75" compressed height and 23.75" extended height.RIDE HEIGHT VS SEPARATION GEOMETRY EXAMPLE: (will have 7.75" of available extension with a 16" ride height)
16.00" ride height - 14.75" full compressed = 1.25" of shock shaft showing at ride height (available to compress/squat)
9.00" stroke shock - 1.25" of shock shaft showing = 7.75" of shock travel available to extend/droop
*We have customers who run these at 0.750" to 1.00" of shaft showing, with 8"+ of extension down trackRIDE HEIGHT VS NEUTRAL
GEOMETRY EXAMPLE: (will have 4.5" of available extension AND compression with a 19.25" ride height)
19.25" ride height - 14.75" full compressed = 4.5" of shock shaft showing at ride height (available to compress/squat)
9.00" stroke shock - 4.5" of shock shaft showing = 4.5" of shock travel available to extend/droopRIDE HEIGHT VS SQUAT
GEOMETRY EXAMPLE: (will have 6.00" of available compression with a 20.75" ride height)
20.75" ride height - 14.75" full compressed = 6.00" of shock shaft showing at ride height (available to compress/squat)
9.00" stroke shock - 6.00" of shock shaft showing = 3.00" of shock travel available to extend/droopSHOCK LENGTHS - FULL COMPRESSED -VS- FULL EXTENDEDC315-316 14.75-23.75BUSHING STYLE OPTIONS
Bearing mount widths are available in 1.00", 1.25" and 1.50" widths and use 1/2" -OR- 5/8" Bolts.

VIKING PERFORMANCE TRIPLE ADJUSTABLE COMPRESSION VALVING:
(We only offer these in Berserker and Crusader Valving)
performance is on the line, look no further than a Viking Performance
Triple Adjustable shock for your performance vehicle! With these Triple
Adjustable shocks, rebound tuning is the same as the double adjustable.
On the compression side, the compression is split into two adjustments -
low speed and high speed. This allows for significantly greater high
speed shaft forces without impacting low speed feel or performance. The
potential force range at lower speeds becomes an area instead of fixed
lines. Small and compact like their industry leading double adjustables,
these Viking Triples do not need canisters.
shocks offer the most powerful compression forces of any other shock
offering available today! A triple adjustable shock is the best choice
for all situations and applications.WARRIOR: For cars that are PRIMARILY street driven but racing is life. Comfortable performance and durability.
BERSERKER: For cars that fall under Warrior but make 600+HP - this is the average boosted car owner's choice.
CRUSADER: For cars that are PRIMARILY raced with "limited" street use. Meant for Racecars / Weekend Warriors.
