I REMOVED MY PULL BAR SHOCK JUST TO VERIFY WHAT IT WAS (BOUGHT IT COMPLETE). IT IS AN AFCO # 1374 IS THIS A DECENT SHOCK AND HOW DO YOU READ THE AFCO NUMBERS?:confused:

what type of car is this ?
the shock you have is a 7 inch 4 valve shock
where actually is this shock mounted and in what direction ? not sure what you are refering to as a pullbar shock

My Apoligies The Fingers Were Going With The Brain Off! What I Meant Was The 5th Coilover On The Torque Arm. Car Is An 07 Mastersbilt And Spring Is A 325x10:d

On my mastersbilt we ran a 73 or a 73-7 on the slicker tracks to keep it on the bars

This is what MasterSbilt calls for. Not saying something else won't work though. Depends on track conditions and driver feel/preference.

That is a 7 in stroke, straight 4 valve shock.
Not sure myself what stroke a Masters requires, a four valve is what use to be used in slick conditions (three for higher grip) , not that it won't work well, but is not the normal baseline usually used when on the hook.
The higher rebound 3-7,now used as stated above,will tighten entry and help keep liftbar and rear suspension loaded, as... when... if you lift for entry.
