By upgrading your suspension, your car will not only look much better closer to the ground but should also have significantly better handling. We've put together some of the best coilovers and suspension components on the market today so your whip can hold the road better while delivering a buttery smooth ride.
FORTUNE AUTO 510 SERIES COILOVERS
The Fortune Auto 510 Series offers the all-new Concave Flow Digressive Piston(tm). This Jekyll and Hyde technology offers many benefits including the convenience of tuning your suspension without having to re-valve your dampers and using the wide damping range as an artificial spring rate. The large adjustment range contributes to a comfortable ride on the street and unyielding performance on the track, all with the twist of a single adjustment knob.
TEIN USA FLEX Z COILOVERS
TEIN's new FLEX Z coilover line provides a full featured coilover package that its predecessor offers but at an amazingly low price, possible by way of a fully sealed damper unit. Included upper mounts simplify installation, while 16-way damping and full-length adjustability (separate ride height and spring preload settings) allow you to tune your suspension for any road condition. Proprietary ZT coated damper bodies and 2-layer/1-bake powder coated brackets provide all-weather protection for year-round use.
