The Aragosta Type SS Coilover stands as the pinnacle of Aragosta’s coilover lineup, meticulously designed to excel in track-focused applications. These coilovers boast a diverse selection of custom spring rate options, allowing drivers to tailor their suspension precisely to their needs. The Type SS comes equipped with a 2-way remote reservoir system, effectively mitigating damper oil heat soak, and features independently adjustable compression and rebound settings, providing the ultimate control over the suspension dynamics.

The Ultimate in Smooth Performance

  • At the core of the Aragosta Type SS Coilover lies an ultra-lightweight, high-pressure forged aluminum cylinder, boasting advanced film treatment and Kashima coating. This special treatment, which involves impregnating molybdenum, results in astounding lubricity for the cylinder itself. The Type SS excels in reducing friction and enhancing durability, far exceeding the capabilities of conventional hard alumite coatings. As a result, these coilovers deliver impeccable linearity, smoothness, and remarkable traction abilities at the highest level of performance.

High-Precision Machining with the Highest Priority on Performance

  • Aragosta takes pride in the precision processing of the cylinder, achieving surface roughness as low as 0.2 micron and 2/10000 mm for both aluminum and steel cylinders. Additionally, advanced honing treatments are performed to enhance the surface accuracy and roundness inside the cylinder, meeting the most demanding specifications. Such meticulous processing is an extraordinary feat among damper manufacturers, solidifying the Type SS coilovers’ position as a true engineering marvel.

Superior Finishing Technology

  • The Type SS coilovers feature a steel cylinder/outer case coated with cationic electrodeposition coating, renowned for its exceptional rust prevention, impact resistance, and overall durability. This advanced coating technique ensures full electrodeposition coverage, providing comprehensive protection to every thread corner and extending the coilovers’ longevity while preserving peak performance.

Equipped with High-Performance Spring as Standard

  • The Type SS coilovers come standard with Rana springs, embodying the epitome of series-wound spring design. Beyond their exceptional quality and durability, the linear characteristics of these springs contribute to maximizing the overall damper performance.

Sharpened Internal Structure

  • To enhance the Type SS coilovers’ exceptional performance, Aragosta equips them with precision damper pistons and needles, capable of finely controlling damping characteristics even at extremely low speeds. This broad range of adjustability, spanning from comfort-oriented settings to sporty responses, dramatically enhances traction performance. Moreover, the external damping force adjustment mechanism offers a clear characteristic change across the 20-step adjustment range, featuring a smooth and direct click feel for precision tuning tailored to any setting.

High Hardness, High Efficiency WPC Processing

  • The Type SS coilovers utilize inverted cartridge cylinders featuring precision shot peening, a superior technology known as WPC processing. This advancement significantly reduces the wear coefficient in cartridge cylinders with high sway resistance, thereby improving oil film retention in the sway part. Aragosta’s unwavering commitment to prioritizing performance even in concealed components solidifies their 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.
