This "Shock Kit" is an alternative to the original stock Girling
shock absorbers for the DeLorean automobile. The original shocks, even the "New"
18 year old original replacement Girlings, are valved based on 1980's technology. This
means they were valved to make a cars suspension as stiff as possible, the 80's idea of
"performance handling". The shocks included in this new alternative kit are
valved for a much softer ride, which gives the Delorean more of a sports "Touring
Car" feel, yet they also include modern 1990's "Variable Speed Valve"
technology which stiffens the shocks for better handling as the going gets more
aggressive. The shocks included in this kit are current "top of the line" gas
charged units from Monroe and Gabriel. The front shocks will work with either stock height
Deloreans or cars which have been lowered. The rear shocks include a custom set of billet
aluminum collars for the rear spring locating cone which allow over 4" of vertical
adjustability, allowing you to set the rear ride height in relation to the front to
maintain the car at a level attitude. If you lower the front of your car, you can now
lower the rear the same amount, while still using the original stock rear springs. This
kit includes 2 new front shocks, 2 new rear shocks, 2 billet aluminum collars for the rear
shocks and miscellaneous hardware for installation. This kit requires no modifications to
the DeLorean itself.
