      ST Coilovers

      HPA oversees the rebirth of an American Suspension Brand: ST Suspensions.


      As the original exclusive importer of KW Suspensions for the North American market over a decade ago, the HPA team has continued to work closer than ever with this talented German manufacturer. HPA is proud to officially announces the rebirth of an iconic US brand: ST Suspensions (formerly known as Suspension Techniques).

      Since 1979, the ST brand has been associated with cutting edge suspension offerings for a broad platform of vehicles. In 2005, KW Automotive GmbH of Germany acquired the ST brand with visions of lifting the quality expectations for the budget conscious enthusiast.

      Over the last several months, the team at HPA has worked closely with KW Automotive North America in Sanger California to review the ST Coilover program in efforts of optimizing the program offerings for a perfect fit with our platforms and roadways. Even the future color scheme is being updated for these high tech dampers.

      The ST program has been in an identity crisis and never been offered center stage… until now. By injecting some of KW’s European technology into this new line of coilovers, the ST brand will set the bar for quality and functionality within a market segment overrun by rebranded offshore knock offs.



      ST Suspensions Coilovers feature:

      • Zinc plated steel housings with “D” shaped threads to ensure ease of height adjustment across the life of the damper

      • Steel impregnated composite spring seats guarantee against corrosion and prevent binding when adjusting ride height

      • Pre-set low pressure twin tube damper construction optimizes pitch and roll without compromising comfort over harsh road surfaces

      • Self centering integrated dust boots protect piston rods and seals from stone chips and road debris

      • Rising rate Elastomer bumpstops increase spring rate under extreme conditions to avoid the need for a stiff ride in day to day usage

      • High tensile steel springs offer more travel than standard steel

      • 5 year limited warranty backed by the world’s largest coilover manufacturer
      Over the coming months, the “New Look” ST coilovers will start to hit the shipping lane from Germany to the US as the green and black combination is phased out in favor of the yellow and black.

      We wish to thank everyone for stopping by the ST booth. We are looking forward to everyone’s reviews from those who purchased their kit over the weekend.

      It was a great time and offered us a real opportunity to field the enthusiast’s queries as to who is ST and why choose ST.


      Key features of ST Coilovers / How it compares to other brands on the market:

      ST is the “Baby Brother” to KW’s Variant 1 coilover. Designed to bring a quality solution to the sub $1000 coilover market, KW integrated many of the features that make their Variant 1 suspension so popular into today’s ST coilover kit, while taking steps to minimize production costs. ST coilvers provide a very comfortable ride (so important for daily drivers in areas with rough road conditions) with tight handling for sporty driving.

      Quality Features:

      * Specially designed D-shaped coarse thread pitch - easy to maintain, resistant to thread damage.
      * Steel impregnated polymer (plastic) spring perches - will not fuse to the shock body as aluminum perches are prone to do.
      * Perches are self lubricating ensuring many years of trouble free adjustability.
      * Rising Rate Elastomer bump stops - functions like an extra spring to absorb impact and add comfort.

      Cost Savings:

      A big contributor to reducing the price point was moving to a zinc plated steel housing instead of stainless steel. Besides cost of materials, the production time is greatly reduced as construction methods are simplified.

      Secondly, by utilizing spring rates that cross over between multiple vehicle sub-models, ST can cover more applications with less part numbers; thereby reducing inventory carrying costs. Further to this goal, ST is switching from green colored springs to yellow to share inventory with the springs used in the main KW production line.


      With such a successful weekend at Waterfest, we have decided to extend our special offer until the end of July of a FREE exclusive HPA Hoodie with your ST order if you become a Fan of our Facebook Page.

      Does the ST coilover kit reduce sagging in the rear end? Is there enough adjustment to take out the negative camber?
