Vi-King Double Adjustable Shocks & Trans Crossmember

Post by BBMALIBU on Sat Jun 06, 2015 3:43 pm

I just wanted to share some picture of my new Vi-King Double Adjustable Rear Shocks and
G Force trans crossmember (aka Summit Racing brand) soon to be installed.

I though everyone would like to see a comparison between the Vi-King shocks and Competition Engineering shocks.
Although the Vi-King are rear and Comp Engineering are front, you can get the idea of build quality between the two.

True, but remember the saying: "You get what you pay for."

Yes, the Vi-King double adjustable shocks were less expensive than QA1, Strange, & Afco.

Double Adjustable:
Vi-King: $179.99 each
QA1  $235.97 each
Strange: $250.00 each
Afco: you don't want to know

Vi-King double adjustable got very good reviews on a number of other forums.

Plus they have a 2 year warranty. I believe the others are 1 year.

From what I understand, Viking was started by 2 guys that left QA1. But a good double adjustable shock is an improvement to help get the rear tire to bite.

That is what I read on a few different websites.  

I am not sure how good QA1 DA shocks are, as long as the Vi-King shocks are good it doesn't matter to me who started the company.

I've heard all the stories that QA1 sucks, that they got worse recently and it may or may not have been the reason for the guys leaving etc. I also know of a few cars with older Qa1 parts that worked fine. I had QA1 springs in the rear of my car up until last winter. I think basically the reviews were given by people trying to go REALLY fast with cheap stuff and then complained it didn't work. For the average street/strip, bracket car I don't think you can go wrong with any of them.

I have the VI-KING double adjustable roller bearing units on the front of my car and am very satisfied.
2 year warranty. Complete set up was close in comparability to separate lower springs and shocks.
Plus , they look great.
See them in my post with the B-body front spindle upgrade.
