      The APR Roll-Control Coilover Suspension System is designed to dramatically improve handling while delivering a stylish visual upgrade to your vehicle’s appearance. This is all made possible while retaining a comfortable and exciting daily driving experience expected from a high end system. With this system, you will experience a harmonious balance between the springs, struts/dampers, and bump stops thanks to a careful selection of spring, and damping only possible through the use of non-generic components.

      This system is built to last. Unlike bargain systems, we only use premium materials. The struts are made from stainless steel, with anodized aluminum spring seats, allowing years of height adjustment without worry of rust destroying the threads. The springs are made from a high tensile strength chrome silicon which greatly resists sagging. Spring seats feature a locking collar, instead of a set screw, which prevents a common failure. Thick stainless steel stabilizer bar end link mounting tabs are strong and allow adjustment for proper orientation. There’s no worry of end link binding issues, and they will not bend like thin aluminum systems found on even some of the higher end systems. Lastly, each shock and damper is dyno tested for quality assurance. This system delivers the premium quality components and the driving experience you have come to expect from APR.

      Quick Facts:
      • Easy height adjustment: 50mm front and 25mm rear
      • Lower up to 55mm all around, depending on factory ride height
      • Improved handling, precise turn-in response, and enhanced grip
      • Designed for street and track use
      • Adjustments: height, corner weight, and stabilizer bar end link position
      • Stainless steel monotube strut design
      • Excellent corrosion resistant materials throughout
      • High tensile strength chrome silicon springs
      • Anodized aluminum spring seats for superior corrosion resistance
      • Locking collar front spring seats
      • Every shock is dyno tested
      • Upright stop collar with integrated keyway
      • Application specific bump stops
      • Rear dust boots included
      • Noise reducing spring isolators
      • Included height adjustment tools prevent thread stripping
      • TIG welded components
      • Serviceable front struts
      • Made in the USA

      Do these work with the adjustable ride control (comfort vs race)?

      Any other aspects will change, but the damping will not adjust.

      These aren't DCC/MAG ride dampers. I think those are extremely expensive when comparing like specs. You do need cancelers, or you get a code. I'm not sure if they can be coded out or not.

      Arin, if a set of these get "lost" in my car at the BBQ this weekend I won't be upset in the least.

      Adjustable Stabilizer end link? That seems interesting. I don't think I've seen this before. Would this remove the need for adjustable end links? Unless I'm understanding what this is incorrectly.

      The adjustability is there if you need it. I've seen plenty of aluminum arms fail when the end links bind, especially when the right and left struts are identical.

      Arin, whats the ride like? Are they tuned for a harsher sport ride or normal? I have DCC but am willing to cancel it if I dont feel every tar line like the Grand Canyon.

      I thought the ride was a perfect balance. I like a stiffer suspension, but I'm not a fan of harshness (I'm not a solid motor mount kind of guy). I felt I could easy tear into the twisties and daily this comfortably.
