What exactly is a tie down shock? What does it help accomplish?

a tie down shock is a shock thats high on the rebound side and usually lighter than you normally run on the compression. if you usually run a 5 in 5 out, a tie down on the rf would be something like a 3 in 6 out, 4 in 7 out, etc. it helps keep weight over on the rf tire and depending on what you're trying to do it will either keep weight from transfering as quickly to the lr tire if you run a leaf car or a 3 link without much body roll or if you you're in a mod or 4 bar style car, help keep the nose pinned and the lr up under the car.
