QA1 26 Series Steel Monotube Shock
Circle Track Monotube Shock Absorber
QA1’s 26 Series shock is designed to be budget friendly, and the competition’s enemy. This one-piece, steel bodied monotube is the lowest priced, best performing shock in its class.
A New Look for the 26 Series!
The 26 Series was recently changed to an electroless nickel plating that encapsulates the base metal and completely seals out the elements. This nickel plating provides excellent corrosion resistance, superior hardness, consistency and lubricity.
The main benefit of the 26 series being nickel plated is the finish on the inside of the body. On a monotube shock, the piston rides along the inside wall of the shock body. If the finish of the inside wall is porous or rough in any way, the shock will be inconsistent. The nickel plating creates a durable, smooth finish that is free of any rough spots. The result is a shock that will perform exactly how it should from start to finish.
- Electroless Nickel Plated Body
Encapsulates the base metal and completely seals out the elements, proving excellent corrosion resistance, superior hardness, consistency and lubricity.
- Linear, Digressive and Low Speed Super Digressive Valving Available
Digressive is the classic monotube shock feel. Linear provides a more stable car and allows the driver to feel the car better. Low Speed Super Digressive is an excellent choice when maximum rebound force is needed for big, low speed, tie-down applications.
- Racer Revalveable and Rebuildable
Designed for unparalleled repeatability.
- Tuneable Gas Pressure
Available with tuneable external gas charging port.
QA1 uses a premium proprietary blend of specially engineered oil to prevent fade.
- One-Piece Body Design
- 46mm Piston
Large diameter piston allows for maximum car control at all shaft velocities.
- 15mm Centerless Ground, Hard Chrome Plated Piston Rod
Precision surface eliminates piston rod flex, increasing valving consistency.
- Deflective Disk Valving
Damping curve allows for complete control of suspension at low shaft speeds without creating extreme forces at high shaft velocities.
- Can be Run Upside Down
Can be mounted upside down with no change in rate to reduce unsprung weight.
- Replaceable 1/2" I.D. Bearings
- Custom Valving Available
Note: Part# 2699-1B has axle damper specific valving.
With the Tuning Kit (part #TK08) you can change your shocks to the valving you need.
