I recently added the Stage 6 QA1 18 way adjustable rear shocks to my WK with Bwoody drop springs. I must say I am VERY suprised! Im not gonna lie.....I was VERY hesitant to believe the claims of what the rear QA1 shocks would do for me. But I believe in Harry@Stage6 and what he says...so I pulled the trigger. $320 later.....a very high quality looking shock arrived at my door step. The housing is a satin chrome with large Stage 6 lettering. Very nicely done IMO. Each shock has a black adjustment knob on the bottom of the shock with a - and + sign. Very easy to read.
Suggested damping adjustments are as follows:
0-6 clicks for drag racing
2-8 clicks for nice ride and handling
8-12 clicks for a firm ride and improved handling
13+ clicks for more aggressive handling
For everyday driving I found a setting of 5 clicks to be the best for me. Very responsive and just a tad stiff in the rear. For aggressive handling...I found a setting of 9 clicks to be good on OK roads or 12 for super smooth roads. I have not tested these at a track...but I suspect 13+ would be good.
For family driving...the best setting is 2 for me and the lowest I have been. The ride is very supple in the rear for an extreme drop spring like my Bwoodys. IMO....its very close to the stock SRt8 Jeep rear setup in feel, ride and handling. My family has thanked me...many times.
The EASE of adjustability is an AWESOME feature of these Stage 6 QA1 rear shocks. Its a simple turn of the knob to the positive or negative...depending on what the owner wants and takes just seconds. I can actually put a towel down to rest my knee on and reach behind my rear wheel and adjust the shocks from there. It is SO easy and ver fast. I love the way the knob clicks to let you know what setting you are going to. Really....a blind guy could adjust these if needed.
Anyway...as you can see...I LOVE
my Stage 6 QA1 18 way adjustable rear shocks and I will be the first in line to buy the new front struts when they become available!
Thanks to Harrison and Stage 6 for bringing these shocks to reality!
