at the rear,drivers fix the shocks on the hole where the rear shock tower is fixed on the bearingblock...for that they put a long screw(approximately 18mm) with a spacer(aluminium or plastic)



on this pic we can see how they do that,like that the schoks are more bent

We have been using part number 909345 as the spacer.

You always want to minimize shock-travel in order to maximize traction.

A higher shock position with thinner springs and oil gives the same result as a lower shock position with thicker springs and oil, or not?

Phoe.... Thinner springs and oil will slow down the shock momentum (eg slow down fast travel). As a higher shock position will also increase the shock movement I dont think this will result in the same action.

Thinner oil will make the movement faster with the same springs but it still have to travel more ...

Hmmm...
I think this lowest possible shock position helps with tractionroll of the car....

Like you (with the 960) also have the possibility to change the settings of the rear body mount, this increases or decreases body movement when the car is cornering........
