I bought some lightly used 3 way adjustable CE's. I put them on the 90/10 setting and leave them there all the time street or strip. They seem to work fine for my level of performance.

As I recall they were a little confusing on the adjustment markings and opposite of what they should have been. work

Pump gas, n/a, through the mufflers on street tires with 3.54's

I run these too but have never been clear on how to set for 90/10.

Same for me as I put them on the 90/10 setting and leave them there. And mine is a street/strip car also. Drives and handles fine. And works ok at the track. Ron

Same set up here. Got a pair for $10(yes $10) at the Indy swap meet a few years back. One wouldn't adjust, but was set on 90/10, so I set the other one there and it works fine. Better than the old "loose" stock shocks I had on there before.

I sold a set that were on my car for>10 Year’s for $10 not too long ago. Internet deal, not the ones you bought. Ya! Pain in the butt to adjust. Set them on 90/10 and left them that way.

I've used several different sets on different A boy Mopar, BB and SB, automatics and stick shift.
They all worked okay BUT if your going to make big HP with marginal traction then you will need a better set of front shocks like the Koni SPA or better up twocents

Never cared for them. Always seemed real stiff and never could get them to adjust to the 90/10 setting...don't think so anyway.

They worked fine on my car for years, but that was on a 3800# car running 11s - 12s.
I never had an issue with adjusting them. twocents

It is tricky adjusting them.
I ran them on all 4 corners of a S/S spring 9 sec A body for years. Worked great

Do you remember what you adjusted the backs to?

I remember with the S/S springs i had the back left the loosest and back right tighter
40/60 back left, 50/50 back right. Never used the tightest setting

The timing on this is impeccable, I just bought a set of fronts and rears off a member, got the tracking info today. Thanks to the OP for asking about them so I can learn the ins and outs as well. beer
