- STANDARD Suspension Coilovers Honda Civic 92-00 EG/EK -

*** MFactory Competition Products are the newly appointed International Distributor for STANDARD Suspension ***






OVERVIEW

There are a lot of generic coilover kits available on the market at the moment, however, they are basically all the same/similar setup (i.e generic) and have not changed over the past 15 years, with prices ranging from $1000-2000; the more expensive only being due to the "brand" and the "assembled in XXX label" rather than the design features. Over 90% of sub-$2000 coilover kits on the market are still manufactured in Taiwan, even the ones "claiming" to be Made in USA, Made in Japan and Made in Germany

There are only 3 "Original Manufacturers" of Coilovers originating from Taiwan:

1) BC Racing (Majority own-brand, the rest oem/odm to Japan/USA)
2) STANDARD Suspension (10% own-brand, 90% oem/odm to Japan/Germany)
3) D2 Racing (Majority own-brand. Almost all Taiwan Brands are from Same-D2-Owner-Different-Brand/Company, or Ex-D2-Employee-New-Brand/Company)

If you are not purchasing BC Racing or STANDARD Suspensions proprietary brands, then you are more than likely purchasing either a re-branded D2 Racing Coilover, or a design based off D2 Racing blueprints (i.e Ex-D2-Employee) and applies to 90% of Coilovers currently for sale on Ebay.

Rather than reinventing the book, it is best to stick to tried-and-tested designs (especially for the street car) hence why all the current setups available are similar in specification. However, dependant on which originating Taiwanese Manufacturer you purchase from, the quality and choice of materials are very much different. Because of this, we at MFactory Competition Products have decided to do what we do best, and this is to provide the market with a quality solution that meets our #1 priority; Value for Money. We believe that, from the 3 original manufacturers, STANDARD Suspension offers the Best Manufacturing Standards and Highest Quality Materials, as evidenced by their strong portfolio of Japanese/German oem/odm clients.

- Offers superior corrosion-resistance

14mm OD or 20mm OD (MacPherson) Forged SAE 4140 Chromoly Steel Piston Rod
- Monotube shocks, although offering increased performance over Twintube shocks, have an inherent weakness; a load-bearing Piston Rod
- Although Inverted Monotube Shocks are touted as the solution, these come with their own set of problems, not least the substantially increased cost of manufacture
- Our over-engineered solution to the problem, with only a marginal increase in manufacturing costs, is our proprietary Chromoly Steel Piston Rod
- Offering a substantial increase in tensile strength over lesser-quality rods, not only does this keep costs down, it significantly increases product safety

- Unlike the majority of budget coilovers currently on the market, with their 30+ Level Adjustments, you can physically feel the difference between each adjustment
- In this particular case, more is not better; it's simply an inconvenience and setup-nightmare

10cm/15cm/20cm Length Adjustment Extenders (Optional)
- Designed for vehicle applications with limited access to their upper strut mounts

44mm OD Forged Piston
