This system from HKS is designed for both performance and comfort. Awesome sporty drive with great control and comfortable ride in the street. Originally designed for the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 2001-2006, this kit will also work very well on the AWD 3000GT VR4 or Dodge Stealth R/T Turbo platforms with optional SCE suspension adapters and some very minor filing of the upper three strut bolts. We are developing a complete installation guide, but its quite simple.
Unboxing and preview videos:
*Single Tube Damper Design*
Mono tube dampers allow for more accurate and stable control and adjustment of dampening. Lower ride height and centre of gravity gives a more stable ride.
Protect the shaft from the flying stones.
Using this special surface coating provides 5 times better durability over standard galvanising. This prevents build-up around the threads of the adjustment areas allowing for easier height adjustment.
With the new design of cylinder shaft since the HIPERMAX M-1, MAX IV increased the cylinder shaft size to have a firm damping even at a little stroke range because of the optimized oil pressure characteristic. We mainly adopted this to the rear damper that can have a better driving experience.
*New Design Needle*
Newly designed needle has been used to revise the very low speed and middle and high speed dampening which is key to a comfort ride.
*Reduction of Unsprung Weight*
In order to reduce unsprung weight, bracket, ride height adjusters and lock nuts are made from aluminium. (Not for all vehicles)
*30 Step Damping Force Adjustment*
30 levels of dampening adjustment allow fine tune adjustment for street or circuit.
