Forge Motorsport Product Description
The Forge Suspension System has been developed with track/street driving in mind, but for those that prefer more show than go, it also offers a two stage lowering system that takes your car from low to really low!
Firstly, the shock body itself is adjustable in length, which means that you don’t have to make the spring shorter in order to lower the car. This means that ride quality can be maintained as the spring stays at its optimum length and the travel of the shock (i.e. its ability to absorb bumps) isn’t affected. On the F56 MINI Cooper Forge recommends up to 50mm ( 1.97") front and 50mm ( 1.97") rear drop in suspension level from stock.
Secondly, the length of the spring can be adjusted via two locking threaded nuts on the main body.
They started by adding the means of adjustment, and then added strengthening, especially as the development vehicle was used on the track. Then we had polyurethane bushes made by the industries finest, Powerflex.
The Forge Motorsport suspension gives you the best balance between performance & comfort. With 32 levels of damping adjustability, this suspension kit can be set for the street or the track.
- Pillow ball top mounts on the front shocks in order to dial out excessive camber
- Manufactured from carbon steel 52mm diameter seamless tube
- A 44mm linear characteristic internal piston provides the best damping response for the tube diameter
- High quality mono tube shock design
- The high viscosity oil used in the damper ensures the very best and most efficient shock-absorbing action
- Spring rates of 6kg/mm (front) and 4kg/mm (rear)
- The length of the shock can be adjusted, preventing the need to adjust the spring perch like on a normal coil-over, and so offering the maximum shock-absorbing travel
