The new "Ultra" Double Digressive Piston (UDDP) with revised shim stacks, featured on our 510 dampers, allows for tremendous amounts of low speed force that helps with driver inputs such as dive, pitch, and roll. Furthermore, the damper force greatly tapers off to provide the driver with an internal "blow off" effect which helps with large impacts on track, keeping the vehicle stable after hitting curbing at high speeds. After countless hours on the shock dyno and testing on the track, we are proud to offer high performance coilovers that rival many high-end European shocks which cost several thousand dollars more. Due to the ultra digressive nature of this shock absorber, this product is recommended for track use only.The ability to upgrade to 2-Way canisters at any time ensures that your investment is a sound one. Update your shocks without the need of investing into a complete new coilover system: simply send your 510 series shocks into our service center for the modular 2-Way upgrade. All 510 series dampers are fully rebuildable, serviceable, and can be custom valved at any time. Please consult our 2-Way application list for more details and availability.510 series damper shaft seals have 40% less drag than our previous models. This provides for less hysteresis and for superior control of driver inputs. Our new seals are made of a specially formulated Buna rubber compound that provides a great balance between reliability and performance! Since the shaft seal is the most important seal on the shock, a stronger seal will greatly improve quality and performance.

510 SERIES - GENERATION 5 UPDATES
Radial Bearing Upgrade
510 Series Generation 5 dampers now include our Koyo radial bearing upgrade as a standard option. Radial bearings provide less spring bind for noise free operation and smoother steering response.
Ultra Precise Shim Stacks
Shims are deflection disks that cover up the port holes on a piston. They regulate the fluid flow which generates the force found in a damper. "Valving" or "re-valving" of a shock is accomplished by using a variety of shims that will ultimately provide enough resistance and damping ability for a particular application. Minute differences in the shims' diameter and thickness are very critical; just a thousandths of an inch of variation in the dimensions can change a damper's force profile up to + or - 25%. The shims' consistency is crucial in matching shock absorbers to one another. Generation 5 dampers utilize a high-grade shim material made of Sandvik steel, ensuring precision matched dampers.
Lightweight Internal Floating Piston
The new Generation 5 Internal Floating Piston is considerably lighter and uses a low-drag teflon band that drastically reduces stiction. This allows the damper to react quicker to shock forces.
