Point
・The stock shock absorber may not be able to provide a stable ride. It may have a big body roll when you turn into the curve with fast speed. If you select our "MAXIV GT" series, you can surely feel the stability and make your driving more safe and comfortable.
・HKS has been seeking the best damper setting to make both driving performance and comfortability to come together.
・We set a suitable spring rate for achieving a well-balanced damping force to make your ride more comfortable, more smooth and stable without excessive body roll or bouncing on rough roads.
・With reduce body roll, you can enjoy a comfortable ride with plenty of grips even on twisted roads.
・This kit offers great customization with a possibility to both low down and lifts up a vehicle for various use.
・Only shock body length is adjusted. Thanks to this, the kit provides a suitable stroke amount without changing the spring length.
・Due to the tension of bushes in some cases, the vehicle height cannot be adjusted exactly as you might have calculated. Please adjust according to the situation with the actual vehicle.
