DESCRIPTION AND SPECIFICATIONS

Aragosta 8K/8K Type S Suspension Kit w/ 4 Cup Lift & Pillowball Upper Mounts for R33 Nissan Skyline GT-R

Aragosta Type S Coilover Suspension systems are engineered to achieve optimum ride during spirited driving, from winding back roads to competitive circuit driving. Balanced, linear handling and seamless traction are hallmarks of these meticulously designed coilovers. A wide range of adjustability allows for a true daily driver/weekend warrior suspension that is equally proficient in nearly any situation.

Specifications

  • Premium Rana springs for incredibly consistent rates and unmatched durability.
  • Forged aluminum cylinders with Kashima coatings provide incredible strength and corrosion resistance.
  • High rigidity steel inverted struts and cation coating ensure long life and smooth operation.
  • 20 step damper settings for an incredibly wide, usable range of adjustability.
  • Fully height adjustable.
  • Pillow ball and rubber mount options available in many configurations. 

Kit Contents

  • Coilovers (4x dampers + Rana Springs) 
  • Adjustment Wrenches

The Ultimate in Smooth Performance

The ultra-lightweight, high-pressure forged aluminum cylinder uses next-generation film treatment and Kashima coating. The special treatment of impregnating molybdenum realizes amazing lubricity of the cylinder itself. It is equipped with significant friction reduction and durability that cannot be compared with conventional hard alumite, and enables basic performance such as linearity, smoothness, and traction ability at a high level.

High-Precision Machining with the Highest Priority on Performance

Aragosta are particular about the processing accuracy of the cylinder and are able to execute surface roughness of 0.2 micron and 2/10000 mm for both aluminum and steel cylinders. In addition, an advanced honing treatment is performed to increase the surface accuracy and roundness inside the cylinder to the specified values. It is extremely rare for a damper manufacturer to perform processing at this precision engine on all of their cylinders.

Superior Finishing Technology

The steel cylinder / outer case is coated with cationic electrodeposition coating, which is considered to be the best in terms of rust prevention, impact resistance, and durability. It reliably electrodeposits to every corner of the thread for maximum coverage and increased lifespan. 

Equipped with High-Performance Spring as Standard

All Aragostas are equipped as standard with Rana springs, which embodies the ideal of a series-wound spring. In addition to high quality and high durability, the linear characteristics contribute to maximizing the damper performance.

Sharpened Internal Structure

Supporting Aragosta’s outstanding performance are damper pistons and needles that can control fine damping characteristics from extremely low speeds; covering a range from comfort to sports, dramatically improves traction performance. In addition, the external damping force adjustment mechanism gives a clear characteristic change to the 20-step adjustment range with a smooth and direct click feel, and corresponds to any setting.

High Hardness, High Efficiency WPC Processing

The inverted cartridge cylinder uses precision shot peening (WPC processing), which is the best technology for modifying metal surfaces. In cartridge cylinders with high sway resistance, the wear coefficient has been reduced and the oil film retention in the sway part has been significantly improved. It is a manifestation of manufacturing that puts the highest priority on performance to spend time and money on parts that are not visible.

Aragosta 4 Cup Lift System

This is an innovative system that makes it possible to avoid interference between the body and the road surface, which is a concern on very low vehicles. Speed bumps, entrances and exits of parking lots are no longer a concern. The Cup System raises the vehicle height in a short time with a single compact switch from the driver’s seat.

Main Specifications

  • Lifts both front and rear axle heights 40-70 mm in just 2 seconds.
  • Adopts highly reliable Roberta lifter system.
  • During normal driving, the conventional Aragosta performance remains.

Notes

  • Normal driving is not possible with the vehicle height raised.
  • The amount of height adjustment will vary by model.
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.
