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

Aragosta Type S Coilover Suspension systems have been meticulously engineered to deliver the ultimate ride experience during spirited driving, whether you’re conquering winding back roads or competing on the circuit. Characterized by balanced, linear handling, and seamless traction, these coilovers are the epitome of thoughtful design. With a wide range of adjustability, they provide an exceptional suspension that is equally proficient in any driving situation, whether you’re using it as a daily driver or taking it out for weekend warrior adventures.

Unparalleled Smooth Performance

  • At the heart of Aragosta Type S Coilover Suspension systems lies the ultra-lightweight, high-pressure forged aluminum cylinder treated with next-generation film treatment and Kashima coating. The special impregnation of molybdenum ensures incredible lubricity within the cylinder, surpassing the friction reduction and durability achieved by conventional hard alumite. As a result, these coilovers deliver outstanding linearity, smoothness, and exceptional traction performance.

Precision Machining for Peak Performance

  • Aragosta’s unwavering commitment to performance is evident in their attention to detail in processing accuracy. The cylinder’s surface roughness reaches an impressive 0.2 microns and 2/10000 mm for both aluminum and steel cylinders. Additionally, an advanced honing treatment further enhances surface accuracy and roundness inside the cylinder to meet specified values. Such precision in cylinder processing is a rarity among damper manufacturers.

State-of-the-Art Finishing Technology

  • The steel cylinder/outer case of Aragosta Type S Coilover Suspension systems is coated with cationic electrodeposition coating, renowned for its unrivaled rust prevention, impact resistance, and durability. The coating reliably electrodeposits into every corner of the thread, ensuring maximum coverage and an extended lifespan.

Equipped with High-Performance Spring as Standard

  • As a standard feature, all Aragosta Type S Coilover Suspension systems come equipped with Rana springs, which embody the ideal characteristics of a series-wound spring. Apart from being of superior quality and durability, the linear characteristics of these springs contribute to maximizing damper performance.

Enhanced Internal Structure

  • Aragosta’s outstanding performance is supported by damper pistons and needles designed to control fine damping characteristics even at extremely low speeds. The wide range of damping control, covering comfort to sporty driving, dramatically improves traction performance. The external damping force adjustment mechanism offers a clear characteristic change through a 20-step adjustment range, providing a smooth and direct click feel, making it suitable for any setting preference.

High Hardness, High Efficiency WPC Processing

  • The inverted cartridge cylinder of Aragosta Type S Coilover Suspension systems utilizes precision shot peening (WPC processing), a cutting-edge technology for modifying metal surfaces. This technology reduces the wear coefficient and significantly improves oil film retention in the sway part of high sway resistance cylinders. The focus on this level of manufacturing precision showcases Aragosta’s dedication to prioritizing performance, even in parts that may not be immediately visible.

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.
