Basic Suspension Maintenance Time!

Basic Suspension Maintenance Time!

Have you been inspecting your suspension periodically? No?? Why not??? Just like most other aspects of your vehicle, an inspection of your suspension should be done. We typically like to inspect all suspension components, not just coilovers, during every oil change (every 5,000 miles). Suspension, and not just the shock absorbers, have quite a bit […]

Adjusting Damping on a TEIN Coilover

Just a quick reminder to those who are new to our adjustable suspension, specifically regarding damping setting (soft to stiff, and vice versa).

Why Nitrogen Gas for Dampers?

Why Nitrogen Gas for Dampers?

When we get this question, it’s typically assumed that the customer thinks we only fill our dampers with nitrogen gas. We get this question at shows, even though we have our clear damper models that people can try for themselves and literally see the damper oil inside the damper. We in fact do use nitrogen […]
