Front Strut and Rear Shock Adjustment
Your Shelby GLH-S is equipped with fully adjustable KONI shocks and struts. If you wish to change the dampening characteristics you will need to use the adjusting knob stored in the glove box.
1. Front Strut Adjustment
Take the adjusting knob which is supplied, open the hood and find the top of the front struts. The top end of the adjusting rod has flats over which the adjusting knob of the same configuration fits. Place the knob over the
top end of the front strut and lock it in position by turning slowly until you feel the knob engage. Now turn the adjusting knob clockwise. If you feel resistance do not use force, as the strut is in the unadjusted position. Reverse the adjustment slightly and try again. To adjust the dampening force, the knob has to be turned in the direction of the arrow for increased dampening and the opposite direction for decreased dampening.
WARNING: Adjust both the left and right struts identically. Failure to do so could produce unstable handling and uneven tire tread wear.
Always take away the adjusting knob in order to prevent possible damage to the hood.
2. Rear Shock Adjustment
To adjust the rear shocks, open the rear hatch back and remove the black shock tower caps located on each side of the car behind the rear seat. Take the same adjusting knob provided and proceed according to the same procedure mentioned above.
