- Completely redesigned internal design
- Aluminum impact forged construction allows leak free operation
- Mono-tube design for superior oil control
- High quality bearing mounts and stud style mounts for years of reliable service
- Large rubber external bumpstop prevents harsh bottoming out

Mono-tube construction offers superior fade free performance and great ride quality. An impact forged aluminum body with an anodized finish provides superior strength and reliable service. A 5/8" chrome shock shaft moves a 1.834" piston that dampens suspension travel. Oil leakage is eliminated by use of a double sealed rod guide with a dust cover. Includes 1/2" bore x 1" kevlar lined bearings for noise free operation and CNC machined billet hardware.

The HQ (Handling Quality) series shock features a completely redesigned internal design.The most noticeable upgrade from the RQ is the adjustability. Choose from 26 different rebound settings by the turn of a knob. An adjustable shock allows you to tune your suspension until it delivers the performance and/or ride you are looking for. Drive to the track on one setting, change it for the track, then switch back again to drive home. The high quality mono-tube aluminum body shock is designed for superior oil control. High quality bearing mounts and stud style mounts will last for years of reliable service.

If you're not sure if you want an adjustable shock, think about how you use your Mustang. Even street driving will benefit from adjustable shocks but if you attend motorsports event regularly, you definitely want adjustability. An adjustable shock gives you the ability to tune the suspension until it delivers the performance and ride quality that you want. With simple turns of a knob you can adjust from your street setting to a track setting. Be sure to pair up the front HQ ShockWaves with rear ShockWaves for a truly balanced vehicle.
