Default front shocks

I'm redoing the front of my altered. It is a por desing with a torsion bar and straight axle. I want to keep the straight axle but put coilovers on it with a fourbar. I just bracket race with it and know only run in the mid 10's with plans down the road 1-2 years to run mid 9's . thinking about the strange shock is it worth the extra $200 for the double adj. vs. the single adj. and do you think i should have the front shock vertiacl or angled in at the top to help the axle articulate, the pits have lots of potholes in them. the rear is solid right now and to make the car driveable I put a tube inplace of the shocks on the front for know. so know it is a solid chassis car which is a very rough and bouncy ride 125" whilebase
thank in advance every one

Default front

I would rather have more adjustments than I need than less.

Really the only way you will know is do it.

Double adjustables are worth every penny ... and I'll also say this .. save up for a decent shock instead of buying a cheap shock.

Afco, Strange, Penske, Ohlin all good shocks.
