AST is one of the most advanced and high quality suspension manufacturers in the game. Any of their products will leave you completely satisfied and even more in love with your car than you thought possible
The Sportline 2, or 5100 series, is the beginning of AST's performance suspension. It is designed for street and track use, so it will give you the acceptional performance and amazing looks that you expect would come with a product of this caliber.
The 5100 Series shock absorbers utilise inverted / upside down technology. The inverted design is race proven technology and produces an extremley strong damper, providing better suspension geometry under heavy lateral and braking loads as seen in a road and track environment.
The 5100 Series shock absorbers give your car a better performance than the standard twin tube design. With the 5100 Series suspension you can adjust rebound with one knob. The adjust platform allows you to adjust the ride height of your car. AST suspension shock bodies are specially designed to keep maximum stroke, even with a lower ride height.
Monotube design essential for performance, The oil and nitrogen are separated by a floating piston, which allows for the use of a larger piston, increasing the damper performance and sensativity felt by the driver, all this added together produces more grip, gives more control and driver feedback from your vehicle.

Rebound controls the rate of extension of your shock absorber, By changing the rebound you can directly change the characteristics of the vehicle.
