03-08 Subaru Forester SG5 EnduraPro Shock Absorbers by Tein

EnduraPro and EnduraPro PLUS are high-performance OE-shape shock absorbers. Designed to use with the vehicle's original (OE) spring and upper mount, their lower spring seat is shaped identical to the OE shock absorber. In addition to replacing worn or leaking OE dampers, these products are excellent to improve specs like ride quality or handling without changing your ride height. You can also use them with TEIN lowering springs.

A "sealed structure", attained by a new production formula, combines high quality with reduced cost. The top end of the shell pipe is narrowed, oil and gas are injected, and the whole unit is sealed by crimping the metal. This new approach massively shortens the production process. As a result, we have succeeded in vastly cutting production cost.

For strut-type suspensions a thickness increase improves the strength and durability of the bracket attaching to the vehicle (steering knuckle) compared to OE shock absorbers. This higher rigidity of the knuckle's support also improves steering feel and makes the ride feel more stable. Please note that the thickness increase varies per vehicle model.

The shell case, the key part of the shock absorber, is made of a high-strength material with tensile strength around 150% of the OE shell case. Weight increase is curbed by keeping the thickness of the cylinder wall the same. A bigger shell case diameter expands its oil capacity, for improved durability as well as a long-term stable damping force performance.

Exhibiting a stable viscosity in a broad temperature range, the high-performance damper oil sustains smooth strokes and a reliable damping force under all kinds of circumstances. It has excellent anti-foaming properties that protect it from cavitation (bubble-forming), and is resistant to overheating, so that it works noiselessly even on rough roads. The damper oil keeps up its superior performance long-term, because it is also resistant to deterioration over time.

The shell case's bright TEIN-green powder paint coating excels in strength and durability, while our coating technique is eco-friendly and without organic solvents. After pre-treatment, TEIN's patented 2-Layer, 1-Bake powder coating method with corrosion-proofing paint is used for superior durability and rust protection. Outstandingly corrosion-resistant, EnduraPro and EnduraPro PLUS can safely be used in regions with heavy snowfall or coastal areas, etc.
