Spherical Bearing Mounts
Kevlar lined spherical bearings mounted upper and lower equipped with anti rattle technology. Manufactured with several key details, foremost the inner diameter of the rose joint is correct 12mm stem and length size for perfect OEM fit. Running upper and lower dust seals for all climate running with retaining top hats.
Body and Bag
Ultra strong chromoly construction with robot welded body. Oil valving / damping tuned to specific vehicle mass. Add to this the tapered rubber sleeve, harnessing a unique rollover lower section designed to allow constant flexibility at all heights with no increase in maximum diameter., Retained with a ratcheted body, ultra strong grooved collar and rated to over 700lbs of lifting force. The body also is tuned in dimension to allow upper tower clearance, lower relocator clearance and mid body trailing arm clearance, especially on King and Link pin configurations, this also increases the steering limits.
Surface area was always the goal, the narrow bore piston retains residual strength taken from the proven stem coil-over giving the shock lateral stiffness way beyond the required need for a shock making this technically an air strut. This piston twinned with the 80mm (Approx) bag body increases surface area of lifting to almost 10x mass to the equivalent product at driving pressures, meaning true accurate heights, less deviation across width of vehicle and ultra accurate control through smooth supported piston movement.
The goldtop, manufactured in 6082 aluminum, visually can be seen the narrow headstock giving ultimate clearance to narrowed front axles, maximum clearance to trailing arm, chassis legs and steering components. The square stem deliberately long to give freedom to float forward and backward without intrusion to supporting components and also giving height to allow the air tap to remain ultra accessible and run either visual or hidden depending on user preference. Aluminum headstock provides the tapered air port in industry standard NPT fixing (included) to 1/4″ ptc rotating air tap. Internally 8 degree hollowed out cup to the seal ring barb giving options for armored and 3/8″ installations. This pocket increases drop by a further 1.25″ giving unparalleled lift vs drop.
