ok someone clear up two things for me-

does adjustable shock valving mean adjustable stiffness of the shocks?

also what are pillow ball mounts?

The answer is a lot more complex than stiffness. Basically, adjustable shocks let you change the rebound and compression. Compression controls the unsprung weight of the car (tires, wheels, rotors, etc.) This is what makes a car feel stiff or not. If it's set too high, the car will bounce over bumps and lose traction and generally be a lousy ride. Rebound effects the transient characteristics of the suspension in motion. This controls the transfer of weight from side to side and from front to rear.
I’ll assume you mean adjustable pillow ball mounts. These are the top mounts for struts that make it possible to adjust camber beyond what the camber bolts can do and make it possible to adjust caster. Most cars don’t have a means of adjusting caster.
