Details


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

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.
What is a rebound adjustment?

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

Features:
  •     Floating piston design with high pressure nitrogen means no cavitation around the piston.
  •     14mm diameter internal shaft.
  •     44.5 mm diameter shaft struts, inverted.
  •     Steel cylinder body shocks, inverted.
  •     High end, track ready suspension.
  •     Rebound adjustable (”Singles”).
  •     Low friction seal.
  •     Adjuster knobs permanently mounted on the dampers.
  •     Rubber bushings for ”eye” shock mounts.
  •     Optional spherical top mounts.
  •     Optional DLC Coated shafts.
  •     Optional DDP piston (double digressive).
  •     Rebuildable.
  •     Optional custom valving.

Love your business and your attempt to service MINI owners. One suggestion for you. When you feature a produce on the front of your emails each time, you should explain just exactly what the part is, what it does, and why a MINI owner would want to replace something on their car with it. All of us are not mechanics and might not recognize a picture of a part. As you do the site now, you always put these things in there and the copy is written as though everyone knows exactly what the part is for.

Another idea, what are the types of things that many MINI owners can do with their cars in terms of customization. Your site is so vast and the number of ideas so large, it's hard for the average person to get their arms around what you offer and why we should buy. You write as though we already know what we want when we come to your site. In actuality, many MINI owners who are not car-savvy don't even know what they might be looking for.

I hope this is helpful.

Best.
