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.

These camber plates are very well built structurally, improved the handling of the car dramatically, but IE built this unit around a very low quality bearing. By increasing the camber in the way that this unit does, it puts more load on the bearing and within only a couple months of installing it, the bearing becomes noisy, than gets sloppy, and than you car sounds like your front end is going to fall off on mild bumps. We installed these fixed camber plates following the instructions to the letter and within a few months, every set had to come off the cars they were on.

Just received my latest order for the R56 Gloss black hood scoop. Easy Install and great fit. Only issue is the gloss finish has major swirl scratches. Not sure if this was a return that got put back on the self or came from factory this way.
