Description

The 8983 remote or piggyback double adjustable shock is the best shock for the money for the amateur racer or track day rider. The 8983 has a remote compression adjuster that gives the user 25 clicks of compression adjustably, as well as 25-40 clicks of rebound adjustability, depending on adjuster option. This allows you to fine tune your suspension for any variable. Large knobs are easily accessible by hand or using standard wrenches. This makes making adjustments on the fly quick and easy.

There are a number of options you can choose from. Length is most critical, you can choose to have your shock height adjustable from OEM length in the following ways:

  1. OEM +12mm (longer shock)
  2. OEM – 12mm (shorter shock)
  3. OEM +/- 6mm (go longer or shorter then stock shock)

The Penske Advantage

  • Separate compression and rebound adjustments
  • Maximum stroke available for optimum suspension travel
  • Ride Height adjustable
  • 100% Designed, Manufactured, and Built in the USA
There a few advantages, one is fitment. The 8983 has more stroke which allows it to work on more applications. Another advantage is it has a larger nitrogen area which helps with consistency over a race period. As a shock heats up, the nitrogen pressure will increase with heat, this will cause a different feel from start to finish. This will also directly affect tire wear.
Yes, like most Penske products, you can easily upgrade the 8983 to the 8987 with a simple canister upgrade.
Yes, the 8983 is the same bore size, so you can run our AMA upgrade valving in the 8983 just like the 898.
