Silk Road RM-A8 Coilovers

Extremely high-quality, high performance coilover systems for the most popular Japanese sport compact applications. High pressure, gas-charging, mono tube type shock absorber. Extra-thick piston rod design, coupled with innovative valving, allows a perfect balance between capable high-speed damping and low frequency smoothness. Also minimizes aeration and cavitation, even under extreme conditions.

* 8 step dampening adjustment allows fine-tuning of overall suspension dynamics.
* Inverted strut system substantially enhances rigidity and heat dissipation.
* Includes high-quality pillow ball mounts.
* Adjustable, locking spring perch PLUS adjustable threaded shock body.
* Individual spring rates available for purchase separately.
* Integrated, rubber dust boots maintain performance and enhance durabilty

UPDATE!

RM/A8 applications now include nitriding on the piston rod, the cylinder and the outer tube.
Merits of nitriding
Increased surface hardness
Increased abrasion resistance
Superior corrosion resistance
Improved heat resistance (warping)
Improved fatigue life of the metal
Offers more benefits over processes such as cementation or induction hardening.

904/27/2006MR2The Silk Roads arrived very quickly. The construction is top notch. The install was straight forward but this kit didn't come with install manual. What was packaged with this kit was two spanner wrenches, an extended adjustment tool, Allen wrench, four coilovers, a manual in Japanese and a nifty sticker. I just installed the kit and two things I had to tackle was the height adjustment which has taken me two weekends to do. The other is that my front rims now rub against the springs. I bought 5mm spacers to remedy this. Ride quality is actually very smooth. The care does jolt you though if you go over bumps or dips. I noticed that my MR2 also has more vibration when the car is at idle. There is one more thing about this kit. I was under the impression that the adjustability of the shocks was only eight way. I was able to turn the knobs 11 clicks. So far my impression on this coilover kit is excellent.
1001/10/2006SupraOrdered the coilovers with 20/12k spring rates. These coilovers are very high quality and they work nicely.

Have you seen these Coilovers?
