SupaShock Suspension (GTSR W1 only)
This race-inspired suspension system is taken from the Walkinshaw Racing Supercars and refined for on-road driving. This is, quite simply, the complete performance package with the suspension tune undeniably track focussed.
The front strut is a monotube upside-down configuration with the damper shaft and bump rubber contained within the strut leg. Lateral and longitudinal loading is controlled through a series of “du-style” bushes contacting the damper outer case. This design removes any side load from the damper shaft and increases the rigidity and response of the system.
Internal components come straight from the racing industry with linear/linear style damper pistons.
The front spring is a coil-over design rated at approximately 2.2 times higher than the balance of the HSV model range.
Other mounting hardware is retained from the regular HSV range to ensure an appropriate level of comfort and refinement.
The rear damper is very similar in construction to the front strut, with the same style “du” bushes to control side load. Again, original mounting hardware is used top and bottom to maintain an appropriate level of refinement.
This damper delivers the lowest frictional losses of any commercial damper available.
