Pre-load Valve System & M4P Deliver Ultimate Elasticity Ideal for Low-stance Enthusiasts."

HKS S-style L was designed to be highly reliable in various uses under any conditions. This new damper is recommended to preserve or improve the ride quality after upgrading tires and/or lowering the vehicle height. The driver can change the ride characteristics at will.

Single Tube Damper Design

 Mono tube dampers allow for more accurate and stable control and adjustment of dampening. Lower ride height and center of gravity gives a more stable ride.

Inverted Strut Type

Strut type dampers use inverted design for added structural rigidity. High rigidity is maintained by supporting the large bending force with a thick pipe; it is retained even when wearing large tires that increase unsprung weight.

PNE Coating

PNE Coating's corrosion resistance is 5 times as much as the galvanization's. This coating can protect against rust, and its smooth surface requires less force to adjust the ride height than conventional dampers.

High Grade Damper Oil

Sports damper oil used for MAX IV series is chosen as a damper oil; it maintains stable damping force and restrains heat sagging caused during high-load driving and/or summer.

PVS(Pre-load Valve System) & M4P(MAX Ⅳ Piston)

PVS (Pre-load Valve System) allows dampening force generation at low speed whilst maintaining suitable force at high speed. An even larger effect is achieved when combined with M4P. As used in MAX Ⅳ series, M4P is able to balance dampening force generation at low piston speeds whilst maintain control at high speed.

New Design Bump Rubber

From compacts to mini vans, all new range of bump rubbers have been created to suit various vehicles and driving conditions to help reduce harshness from bottoming out.

Strengthened Rubber Upper Mounts

Ride quality of city street driving can be improved. Durability is enhanced, and noise is reduced. * Some automobiles has options for pillow upper mount.The design of a needle, which performance was proven in Max IV series, enables wide and liner damping force adjustment.

Strengthened Rubber Upper Mount

Strengthened rubber upper mount for comfort during street driving.

Silent Tube & Spring Insulator

"Silent Tube" & "Spring Insulator" are equipped on springs to suppress unwanted noise.

Aluminum Lock Nut & Ride Height Adjuster

The anti-rust and corrosion characteristics for enhanced durability are featured. Using these can trim weight below the spring.

*1. Height from road surface to fender arch.
*2. Height at factory is the data tested at HKS with the setting of Full Kit. (HKS' recommended setting.)
*3. Adjustable range (However, the lowest value may not be road legal.
Even within the adjustable range, car body, arm etc. may contact. In such case, it will be hard to drive.
Damper oil leakage or any other problems caused by low ride height setting from the factory setting will void the warranty of the product.)
*4. Drivable range that there is no contact of car body or arms etc. (However, change of tire/wheel size may cause a problem.)
Caution). Actual data depends on each vehicle.
