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

Designed to deliver an exceptional ride during spirited driving, from twisting back roads to competitive circuit tracks, the Aragosta Type S Coilover Suspension systems embody the epitome of balance, linear handling, and seamless traction. Meticulously engineered, these coilovers offer a wide range of adjustability, making them equally proficient as a true daily driver/weekend warrior suspension for nearly any situation.

The Ultimate in Smooth Performance

  • At the heart of the Aragosta Type S Coilover Suspension lies an ultra-lightweight, high-pressure forged aluminum cylinder, enhanced with next-generation film treatment and Kashima coating. The cylinder’s unique impregnation of molybdenum results in an astonishing lubricity, providing significant friction reduction and durability unmatched by conventional hard alumite coatings. This enables the Type S Coilovers to deliver outstanding linearity, smoothness, and exceptional traction ability at the highest level of performance.

High-Precision Machining with the Highest Priority on Performance

  • Aragosta places a premium on the precision processing of the cylinder, achieving an extraordinary surface roughness of 0.2 micron and 2/10000 mm for both aluminum and steel cylinders. Furthermore, an advanced honing treatment is meticulously performed to ensure precise surface accuracy and roundness inside the cylinder, a feat that is exceptionally rare among damper manufacturers and exemplifies Aragosta’s dedication to engineering excellence.

Superior Finishing Technology

  • The steel cylinder/outer case of the Type S Coilovers boasts a cationic electrodeposition coating, considered the finest in terms of rust prevention, impact resistance, and overall durability. The reliable electrodeposition reaches every corner of the thread, providing extensive coverage and increased lifespan for the coilovers.

Equipped with High-Performance Spring as Standard

  • The Aragosta Type S Coilover Suspension systems come equipped with Rana springs as the standard, exemplifying the ideal of a series-wound spring. Beyond their exceptional quality and durability, these linear springs significantly contribute to maximizing the overall damper performance.

Sharpened Internal Structure

  • To support Aragosta’s exceptional performance, the Type S Coilovers are equipped with damper pistons and needles capable of finely controlling damping characteristics even at extremely low speeds. This wide range of adjustability spans from comfort-oriented settings to sporty responses, thereby dramatically enhancing traction performance. The external damping force adjustment mechanism provides a clear characteristic change across the 20-step adjustment range, offering a smooth and direct click feel for precise tuning to suit any setting.

High Hardness, High Efficiency WPC Processing

  • The inverted cartridge cylinder of the Type S Coilovers undergoes precision shot peening, utilizing WPC processing, the pinnacle of technology for modifying metal surfaces. This advancement significantly reduces the wear coefficient in cartridge cylinders with high sway resistance, resulting in improved oil film retention in the sway part. Aragosta’s commitment to prioritizing performance in concealed components highlights their unwavering 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.
