Shock valving vs travel

Shock valving vs travel

Shock valving vs travel

I am wondering about shock valving (specifically rebuildable Bilsteins)  and travel. I understand thatshocks are speed sensitive devices.  Does this mean say a shock with 5" travel to one with 10", with the same valving would act the same for a given shock velocity  irrespective of displacement?  

RE: Shock valving vs travel

For the first 5" they will be the same but the next 5" is displacing more fluid as the shaft area increases or decreases internally.

RE: Shock valving vs travel

Yes, the shock shaft or piston has no idea that its in a 5" tube or a 10" tube - unless (of course) it is in a position sensative shock - like the FOX Position Sensative series. JK
