Since first opening its doors in 1986, STILLEN has been known throughout the industry for being product experts in each part we manufacturer and sell. Today, we continue our dedication to this tradition by not only keeping up with our own products, by also maintaining the same level of product knowledge about the other vendors we carry. To do so, we regularly invite vendors to visit us at STILLEN headquarters to train us on their product line. Just a few weeks ago, we welcomed RS-R to our facility and enjoyed an intensive training learning more about their product line, including their coilover shocks and lowering springs. Here are a few things we learned.
100% Japanese Made Coilover Springs
With a goal of delivering “a nice drop, great performance, and a factory-like comfortable ride,” the RS-R coilover springs truly live up to their reputation as the #1 spring manufacturer in Japan. Each of their springs is made from the highest quality steel that is sourced from Japanese domestic metal providers. From there, RS-R’s expert R&D team develops a quality spring that is model specific. This practice ensures that you get the optimum spring rates and drop heights to ensure the best ride in terms of comfort and performance based on the amount of drop you would like.
RS-R offers three different lowering spring options for you to choose from, allowing you to select the perfect balance of comfort and style for your ride. Check out their product line up below:
- Half Down Sus Lowering Springs – With 20-40% increased spring rate and a conservative drop height, these coilover springs are ideal for up to a 1/2 inch drop.
- Down Sus Lowering Springs – Characterized by an increased spring rate of 30-50% and known for its moderate drop height of approximately 1 inch. It’s no wonder the RS-R Down coilover springs are RS-R’s best-selling line
- Superdown Sus Lowering Springs – With a 40-60% spring rate, the RS-R Superdown springs offer RS-R’s maximum drop height and are ideal if you’re looking for a slammed look.
Quietest Coilover Shocks Available on the Market
RS-R has earned their reputation for having the highest quality coilover shock available on the market for good reason – they are. Like their springs of their shocks are constructed from high grade metals sourced from top Japanese metal providers. From there their team develops a vehicle specific valve set up, uses advanced laser cutting techniques to shape their upper mounts, hand welds their lower brackets and hand assembles each coilover in RS-R’s Japan headquarters.
Here are a few features that the RS-R coilover shocks are known for:
- Monotubes are hand assembled and
- Urethane bushings
