We got a chance to install on of the new Greddy type "S" coilover. Some of the features are:large 46mm dia. pistons in a Mono-tube shock, 32-way adjustable damping, adjustable base and spring perches, thick billet upper mounts, and a lightweight coil springs. Instead of the common heavy spring rates, that offer harsh rides and easily loose traction on bumpy American roads, Type-S systems utilize a relatively softer spring with a longer stroke to maximize traction on race tracks or on the street. An added benefit of this is also a comfortable ride for the street. Applications available for many popular Japanese vehicles.
What we found really nice is that Greddy gave the user the ability to adjust the REAR dampening rate without the addition of expensive electronics or removing the shock to adjust. There are two little extensions that mount to the top of the shock and attatch to a knob you mount on your strut bar in the rear hatch. the customer was very satisfied with the handeling and ride quality after a few small adjustments. What we like is that it gives the end user the ability to adjust his/her own dampening rate. We thing this suspension will do well in the Z and G community and is a great mod for the money!! We have several in stock if anyone is interested...

What are 32-way adjustable shocks? The Koni 2822s my neighbor uses on his track car are 4-way adjustable and run over $1K each.
