    I tried searchin' for this because I know I've seen it before but I couldn't find it. Anyway, I have a factory dual shock setup on the front of my '84, and I want to remove one of them for improved ride and flex. The problem is which one should I take off, the front or the rear?? Or does it really matter??? Thanks /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    ive heard that it really doesnt matter, but for the best all-round performance, its probably best to leave the one thats the most vertical

    Remove the shorter one. That is the one that is going to limit flex.
