Aragosta 8-16K/8-16K Type SS 2 Way Suspension Kit w/ Pillowball Upper Mounts for R32 Nissan Skyline GT-R

The Type SS coilover stands as the pinnacle of Aragosta’s engineering prowess, purpose-built for track-focused applications and offering a versatile range of custom spring rate options. These coilovers are equipped with advanced features, including 2-way remote reservoirs to effectively mitigate damper oil heat soak, and the added benefit of individually adjustable compression and rebound settings. The Type SS boasts a host of high-tech components, such as low-friction, WPC-treated inverted struts, height-adjustable Rana springs, Kashima coated forged aluminum cylinders, specially formulated synthetic damper fluid, and Aragosta’s unique low friction seals.

The Ultimate in Smooth Performance

  • At the core of the Type SS coilover lies an ultra-lightweight, high-pressure forged aluminum cylinder, employing next-generation film treatment and Kashima coating. The revolutionary impregnation of molybdenum imbues the cylinder with exceptional lubricity, leading to remarkable friction reduction and unmatched durability that surpasses conventional hard alumite coatings. This innovative technology ensures impeccable linearity, smoothness, and outstanding traction capabilities at the highest level.

High-Precision Machining with the Highest Priority on Performance

  • Aragosta holds meticulous attention to detail when it comes to the processing accuracy of the cylinder. The brand’s capability allows for the execution of surface roughness of 0.2 micron and 2/10000 mm for both aluminum and steel cylinders. Additionally, an advanced honing treatment is performed to enhance the surface accuracy and roundness inside the cylinder, adhering strictly to specified values. Such precision engineering is rarely found in the domain of damper manufacturing, setting the Type SS coilover apart as an exceptional product.

Superior Finishing Technology

  • For optimal rust prevention, impact resistance, and durability, the steel cylinder’s outer case is coated with cationic electrodeposition coating, recognized as the best in the industry. The coating’s reliable electrodeposition extends to every thread corner, significantly prolonging the coilovers’ lifespan while maintaining peak performance.

Equipped with High-Performance Spring as Standard

  • As a testament to Aragosta’s commitment to excellence, all Type SS coilovers come equipped with Rana springs as a standard feature. These springs embody the pinnacle of series-wound spring design, ensuring not only exceptional quality and durability but also playing a pivotal role in maximizing damper performance.

Sharpened Internal Structure

  • To further reinforce the Type SS coilover’s exceptional performance, damper pistons and needles are employed to precisely control fine damping characteristics, even at extremely low speeds. This versatility covers a wide range, from comfort-oriented settings to sporty responses, significantly enhancing traction performance. The external damping force adjustment mechanism offers a smooth and direct click feel, enabling precise changes across the 20-step adjustment range to accommodate various driving preferences.

High Hardness, High Efficiency WPC Processing

  • Aragosta incorporates precision shot peening, known as WPC processing, into the inverted cartridge cylinder. This cutting-edge technology substantially reduces the wear coefficient in cartridge cylinders with high sway resistance, resulting in improved oil film retention in the sway part. This unwavering commitment to prioritizing performance, even in unseen components, underscores Aragosta’s dedication to excellence.

Items that are in stock in the US, either at Bulletproof’s warehouse or at a supplier’s warehouse, are generally delivered within 7-10 days. Special order items from overseas take considerably longer. As a courtesy Bulletproof offers delivery estimates to our customers which take into consideration manufacturer availability and shipping schedule. These estimates represent our best guess based on previous orders from the manufacturer and do not in any way imply a guaranteed delivery window. Many manufacturers work in a “just in time” inventory system and often take 2-20+ weeks to produce an item once an order is submitted. All deliverable items are then sent to our Japanese warehouse. Bulletproof ships a minimum of one full ocean freight container every month from Japan, oftentimes more than one a month. Ocean freight takes an average of 4 weeks. Typically it breaks down to one week in Japan for paperwork and customs, two weeks by boat and one week in US customs/clearance. Due to the wide number of variables between manufacturer and shipping schedules, delivery estimates are simply just that – estimates. We attempt to estimate conservatively and we usually deliver faster than our estimates suggest. It is not Bulletproof’s policy to guarantee delivery time of any special order item, this is impossible for us to do. By ordering you acknowledge that there is no required delivery ETA and an order may not be canceled or altered due to manufacturing or shipping delays, all ETA’s are provided as a best guess only. Please review the full Terms & Conditions.
