2020-02-27 - Adjustable Coil-Over Shock Value

Q.
We are looking to run a [Insert your old car here] which currently has a value of 350-points.  The problem we have run into is we can't find a shock that would work with this car other than coil-over shocks. We found a set that is single adjustable and coil over and needed to confirm the point value. Am I correct in thinking it will be 25-points per corner?
Thank you very much.

A.
Non-Adjustable shocks with a value less than 2x the oe shocks can be used points free.

Coil-over springs with ride-height adjusters are 10-points per corner.

If the shocks valving is adjustable then add an additional 25-points per corner for a total of 35-points per corner.
