The damping is approximately 25%-30% stiffer and gives a firmer, sportier yet forgiving ride quality. The dampers are oil filled and gas assisted for a more refined ride quality. The Stance+ Ultra coilover dampers use NOK oil seals for improved damper life.The springs are powder coated black and the kits also benefit from built in bump stops, helper springs (most applications) and shorter piston rods which also help provide a smoother ride. Not only will the car be lower but it will handle much better than on the standard factory suspension, your car will corner flatter and feel more predictable through fast sweeping bends. With the reduction in body roll the car will change direction quicker and feel far more agile and responsive. The Stance+ Ultra coilovers have been designed for road use but they can be used for occasional track days. The ride height setting is completely up to you and can be changed easily to suit your requirements. Set the car up with a moderate drop for fast road or wind them down super low for urban cruising, the choice is yours. Most kits also include shorter drop links where required by the vehicle.
