    Work being done/other variants in the works for Koni-style adjustable shocks as well. Don't worry, Kelly has not forgotten about you.

    Ready for these Kelly @BMR Tech. Finished up the 762 install as mentioned in that post. Let us know when we can preorder these. I have another brand in place that I've been happy with but I really like the shock travel ability these have to offer. Looking forward to seeing how these work on the track as well.

    Will these work with the Steeda Non-adjustable shocks? Really like the look of these.

    Yes I believe Kelly will have both M10x1.5 and M10x1.0 available in this design.

    Dumb question but I'll ask anyways...how secure is the horizontal nut at the top? Whats the chance of it becoming loose due to movement ?

    Will this cure the rattle of the Viking shocks?

    Outstanding. I'm running your SP080 setup, love it, but I do get some occasional rear bottoming out that on a few roads (specifically bridges) around here, puts the car into a bounce.

    Woo!

    What about compatibility for any other shock out there besides Ford and Viking? The other offerings on the market that you mention as being only there for strength have the choice of many many other sizes and brands of shocks.

    This seems very limited, unless you guys already plan on releasing further adapter sizes.

    Kelly needs to 100% confirm, but there will be the different rod end available for Koni STR.T and Steeda Fixed (M10x1.0), along with another design for Koni/Steeda adjustable and Magneride. That's in the works. By stating Ford and Viking, Kelly is stating that anything with a M10x1.5 thread and w/o an adjustment knob will be covered. This includes a lot of the other offerings on the market that use the stock mounts and mount nuts, including many of the popular coilover packages that aren't a true rear coilover (still separate spring).
