Lakewood Industries, the leader in traction and suspension products, has combined its experience with the latest technology in drag shock design to develop a shock absorber that has performance characteristics superior to any other drag shock available. Lakewood drag shocks are manufactured with only top quality components to ensure many years of consistent high performance. These drag shocks will provide excellent weight transfer on initial launch and bring the front end down quickly to avoid poor aerodynamics, resulting in lower ETs while keeping the rear suspension properly ''loaded'' for maximum traction. As vehicle speed increases, the precision speed-sensitive valving begins to operate, making your vehicle safer and easier to control at the end of the track. Even under hard braking, you will notice less nose dive and better over-all stability at high speed. Lakewood has also developed front street/strip struts for late model Mustangs and Camaros. These struts will give superior drag strip operation as well as excellent street performance.
90/10 Series Struts (Race Only):
Designed to respond similar to our 90/10 series front shocks. For use when quick front end lift is required off the starting line for maximum traction at the rear wheels.
70/30 Series Struts (Street/Strip):
Used for overall improved handling on the strip or when quick front end lift is not needed. Works best on medium to high horse power vehicles with wide tires, and low to medium horse power vehicles with slicks. This is the perfect shock for vehicles driven both on the street and on the strip.
50/50 Rear Shocks:
Best for vehicles with leaf or coil springs.
Properly "loads" rear wheels to prevent overreaction and wheel hop
