Cool MY Shocks, ANY Shocks: The angle vs. the dangle

I'm putting a lift on my Hyundia 8 1/2 lift, 4' out, with a 3" stretch, and am trying to figure out which is better as far as the angle of the stock, coil over front shocks .......... This is a simple question about suspension ...... NOT about the Hyundai cart, okay? Cool ..... Forget that its a Hyundai ...... She's now a "Mongrel".

I'm having to add upper shock mounts and that part isn't an issue ......... This is: When you reposition the front shocks ...... On ANY shock, which is the better plan?
#1 To leave the angle of the shocks pretty much the same as in straight up and down .... vertical manner, or #2 Put them an on about a '65 degree angle?

For what I have and not wanting to replace shocks immediately Do and will they(the shocks) stiffen-up the more you roll them diagonally?

I'm not sure of how shocks work, and how the act or react to different angles. .......... so if someone has some actual new-world input, I'd like to hear it.

Boris, Welcome to BGW.

Laying a spring over increases the spring rate.
Layin a shock over decreases the shock rate and increases the suspention travel.

Suggest going to a book store and pick up a book on setting up a race car suspension. The formulas are worth their weight in gold to tune in a suspension correctly.

OR...

PM one of the other members here and ask them what the used and how it turned out for them. Pics are always helpful.

Good luck.

boris-

i don't know about all of the shock stuff, but i confident in telling you the angle of the dangle is directly proportionate to the heat of the meat

Salty...
So what you're saying is:

If the angle of the dangle and the heat of the meat don't match the stroke of the poke, you could wind up in a world of sh**!
