Coil-over shock absorber with a chrome plated spring.

SSP coilover is a shock absorber fitted with a chrome plated assistance spring. Most often used on Bajas, buggies and trikes. The lower spring mount allows a small amount of tension adjustment. C spanners are included for adjusting.

It is very important to fit the correct length shocks to a lowered car. There must be at least 2 inches of up and down travel from the normal ride height. To ascertain what length you require you must measure the distance between the shock mountings on your vehicle after you have removed the existing shock. This must be done with the vehcile on its road wheels (not on a jack). Once you have measured you need to check it against te shock absorbers we list to see which ones you need.

Prior to fitting new shock absorbers always pump it through a few strokes the correct way up. This removes bubbles that may have formed in the fluid whilst in storage and improves the effectiveness.

They will be too short and the springs are more for aesthetics. These would be better suited:

I have a stock height bay with old KYB shocks fitted but it is poor in side wind conditions. I fitted coilovers on the front and heavy duty roll bars front and back which helped alot. Do you think a pair of these on the rear would help more? The rear sags by about an inch or so.
Question by: john pouney on 11 Jan 2018 21:36:00
In this instance we would probably look at lowering the vehicle slightly with some dropped spindles in the front and a spline adjustment in the rear to help combat the crosswind issue as these modifications will have a much bigger effect than the slightly increased spring rate the coil overs will provide.

Could you please tell me the following
The outside diameter of the coil spring?
The top and bottom mount bolt diameter?
Question by: neville on 29 Dec 2018 12:15:00
The spring diameter is approx 58mm and will take a bolt with a diameter of 11mm

I have a 1976 Kombi pickup (single cab) and use this to haul generators and equipment. I am looking to beef up the rear suspension a little so that the Kombi sits more level when there is a payload. The current suspension is stock standard. Will these shock assist with raising the rear of the a couple of inches?
Question by: Ken on 23 Jan 2018 21:59:00
These coilovers are unlikely to help with what you are trying to achieve. We would suggest some shock such as AC513KG5530 and looking at adjusting the torsion bars as per a workshop manual suggests.

Will this fit my A4 B7 2005 model? Looking to replace the rear 2.

Sorry, these won't fit an A4. Not a model we can help with currently.

Does those fits Daihatsu Sirion 2006. The two rear shock absorbers are gone?
Question by: Biniam on 2 Jun 2019 21:25:00
We only list these for a Volkswagen application, so are unable to say if they would fit a Daihatsu Sirion.
