Perhaps the most universal Penske shock available, the 8760 is used in a wide variety of professional racing applications. In its standard configuration, the 8760 is a triple-adjustable, coilover damper. The 3 adjustments are comprised of a high speed compression adjustment, a low-speed compression adjustment, and a single rebound adjustment. The high-speed compression adjustment works with preloaded shims on a piston face while the rebound and low-speed compression adjustments consist of a needle/seat arrangement for a bleed bypass. The reservoir is available in either integral (piggyback) or remote style (with a hose connecting the main shock body to the reservoir).
All aluminium body components combine for a lightweight, high-performance damper that can be configured in a variety of ways due to its modular design. It is available in a large array of body, eyelet, body cap, and reservoir lengths, which makes custom installations possible. Both 45mm and 55mm body sizes are available as well, which permits the use of 2.00″, 2.25″, and 2.50″ I.D. springs. The 8760 is used currently in BTCC, Grand-AM, ALMS and even on the leading British truck racing lorry, among other series.
