MORE DRIVING FUN, MORE DEPTH IN HONDA CIVIC TYPE R (FC) FOR SMALL MONEY:
ST HEIGHT ADUSTABLE SPRINGS AND ST COILOVER SUSPENSION
ST suspensions have also developed coil springs and coilover suspensions with part certificates and adjustable performance dampers for the fifth generation of the Honda Civic Type R (FC). Both suspensions ensure excellent road holding in everyday life through KW Engineering with KW dampers that can adjust the rebound damping. For all those who want to make the compromise with the standard suspension, ST suspensions have also developed height-adjustable springs.
The adjustable damper technology of the ST XTA and ST XA makes it possible to further increase the driving dynamics without compromising ride comfort.
With the ST XTA and ST XA coilover suspension, the Type R becomes an even more agile sports car. KW automotive, the suspension manufacturer advises that if required, the basic damper setup for the Civic can be further adjusted. For example, if the standard wheels are replaced by a different wheel / tire combination, this can be adapted directly at the suspension kit.
Due to the damper setting, drivers can also take influence on the handling and ride comfort. 16 clicks are available to choose from, and each individual click has a noticeable effect. The further the rebound valves are opened via the damper setting, the higher the ride comfort gets when driving slowly.
If the valves are closed, the handling characteristics are increased and the body structure tends to roll even less. The feedback from the road is also getting more direct, without the tires losing grip on uneven road surfaces.
In addition, the ST XTA and ST XA coilover suspension kit with its adjustable dampers allow a continuously lowering on the Civic Type R. The 320 hp Honda with an elaborate suspension strut construction on the front axle can be lowered on both axles between 10 to 30 millimeters. The ST XA also harmonizes well with driver assistance systems such as the Honda Agile Handling Assist (AHA) and Electronic Stability Program (VSA).
For the Honda Civic Type R riders among you who are really satisfied with the compromise of the adaptive production chassis, we have developed the ST coil springs with continuously adjustable height. The height-adjustable spring set can be installed within a few working units with all the necessary accessories. The ST threaded sleeves mounted on the Honda shock absorbers, in conjunction with the adaptive series dampers, allow infinitely variable adjustment of the lowering on both axles from 5 - 20 millimeters - ideal for all those who only have a good looking lowering in mind. The functions of the electronic damper control are retained.
Part of delievery of the ST XTA coilover suspension kit are also the racing springs and the adjustable top mounts. On the front axle they allow camber adjustment to exploit the full performance potential of sports tires. By changing the camber angle, the tires are given an optimum contact surface for maximum tire grip when cornering fast. The ST Unibal bearings make the handling of the Civic even more direct.
