Yes, it has shock adjustment and heims joints to move it around. I have my shock set 3 from all the way soft. I started the year with it all the way hard making it like a hardtail then changed it after a few passes to feel the difference

Yes same type of adjusment, think it has 12 clicks on it, mine is 3 from all the way soft. You will know which way soft is by just lifting the car up.

I changed everything up so I cant give you a good front vs non front.
I rear suspended my car when doing so, changed converters and tires, added 100lbs to the car. 60's doing this went from 1.04 to 1.10, [email protected] to [email protected] This would all be shocks and driveshaft doing this.
Its a 582 makes just under 1000hp, loose converter 6700 stall spragless, and weighs 1960 with me in it.
