Question Adjustable shocks allowed in SCCA stock classes?

Here are the relevant rules from the SCCA web site for Solo II Stock Class:

Both the front and rear suspension may be adjusted through their designed range of adjustment by use of factory adjustment arrangements or by taking advantage of inherent manufacturing tolerances. However, no suspension part may be modified for the purpose of adjustment unless such modification is specifically authorized by the factory shop manual for non-competition purposes.

I interpret the above as saying adjustable shocks (such as KYB/AGX) are not allowed, since the factory "adjustment" is fixed at only one setting. I've seen other posts that say adjustable shocks are allowed, so I'm confused. Does someone have the definitive answer to this?

read section 13.5 This is the rule that makes AGX's legal in stcok class.
The make of shock absorber may be substituted providing that the number, type, (e.g., tube, lever, etc.) system of attachment and attachment points are not altered.

Strepto's right, the AGX is legal because it's stock ride height. Might help that KYB made the OE strut too.

For the money the AGX is all you'll need in GS. It's pointless however if you have an Integra Type-R in your region or you intend to run at regional / national events. The RS stands a much better chance in STS or in DSP.

Wayne, the rules you are quoting are refering to alignment adjustments. They are talking about adding eccentric bolts where none exsisted and grinding slots for the strut top bolts etc.
Adjustable shocks are definitely allowed, assuming they don't alter ride height.

Thanks to everyone for clarifying the rules. I was trying to use the stock class restrictions to limit my spending...

In fact, there is a Type R in G Stock around here, but fortunately for me, I have a 2.2L. The Type R is only 2 months old, but the novice co-drivers are learning quickly. But I'm still up against Neons and older Integras in E Stock.

At least I'm having fun until I can get my hands on a turbo, factory or otherwise.
