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 AST 2-way Suspension System, or the 5200 Series, is AST's second highest performance suspension system available to the MINI. This suspension system uses an external canister for extra dampening power. It is designed to perform on the track, but will also give you all of the benefits and comfort of a street-based suspension.

The 5200 Series are 2-way adjustable shock absorbers which are based upon competition 3-way adjustable shock absorbers. The 5200 shock absorbers are adjustable in compression and rebound.

The design of the compression adjuster is an evolution of the compression adjuster we provided for the American Grand-Am series for the last few years. The 5200 shock absorbers were designed to achieve a quick and easy set up, allowing separate adjustment of compression and rebound.

In the 5200 Series, AST uses an external canister. Throughout testing and competitions, the 5200 has been praised for its performance and capabilities, surpassing other major, more expensive brands and setting a new standard of 2 way damper. Its no surprise that the 5200 is fast becoming a favorite damper among race teams and track day enthusiasts world wide.

Features:
  •     High end, track ready suspension that is totally streetable
  •     Fully upgradeable to 5300 spec
  •     Front / Rear Top Mounts Included
  •     Rebound and Compression Adjustable (‘Doubles’), with a remote reservoir
  •     Remote reservoirs allow additional travel and heat dissipation
  •     44.5mm diameter shaft struts, Inverted
  •     New low friction seal on all AST dampers
  •     Spherical lower "eye" shock mounts
  •     Reservoir with hose or piggyback
  •     Spherical upper shock mount assemblies
  •     Synthetic hydraulic fluid
  •     Optional DLC Coated shafts
  •     Optional DDP piston (double digressive)

Customers' comments

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.

My comment has to do with placing an order this weekend for less that $10 of products I tried paying with paypal three times and all three times it let me into the paypal system after logging in with my info for paypal then handed me back to your system at my shopping cart with the items still there and no order as if I never went through the process to pay with paypal. I finally opted to pay via my credit card and the system accepted the payment type and completed my order. Was this caused by a glitch in the system or what was the deal? My final order number is order #106762 which is the only one of four attempts in the end to be successful.

Greetings,

The above order arrived to my home yesterday. I've just opened the box and I wanted to let you know how delighted I continue to be with OutMotoring.com. This was my third order from OutMotoring and each one has been well-handled.

UPS was been the shipper. The shipping box arrived filthy and beat-up. I don't why delivery trucks never seem to be cleaned. Judging by the crushed areas on the shipping box the thought of damaged items crossed my mind. However, upon opening the box I found that the staff person(s) at OutMotoring made sure my order was extremely well packed. I believe that the packing paper used is an expensive grade and that along with care the in packing being generous and accomplished with thought had indeed protected the items in my order.
Further, the items in the shipment were in the manufacturer's packages and in perfect condition, clean and not damaged in any way. Nothing in the shipment had any appearance of having been mishandled such as being tossed around, dragged, or thrown about on a shipping bench.
Two of the items were T-Shirts, and these had been placed in separate zip sealing plastic bags that I expect were supplied and handled by OutMotoring. The T-Shirts had been respectfully folded, and even the excess air was pushed out of the plastic bags. Beautifully done.

When I placed this order I made note that my previous order had included two window stickers that were defective. I didn't ask for a refund or exchange of these because I was concerned of it being thought of as my having made a mistake during the application and trying to get you to pay for that. But I knew the importance of this defect for other customers and decided the best thing to do would be note the issue so that the remaining stickers could be inspected.
It turned out that I had joyful surprise finding that included in this shipment were three of the replacement window stickers. Wow! And without my asking, just from a note. That was a very kind thing to do.

I'd like to say that at one time I called your office. I don't remember if this was due to a concern or if I'd had a question. I spoke with one of the owner's and I'm sorry I don't remember his name. But that call was so well-handled that it left me about as favorably impressed as can be. In my short history in being an OutMotoring customer I've been very, very, happy with the products, the respectful packaging, and the kindness in client handling. Outstanding!

In thinking about myself and everyone that I know, daily life has persistent yet needless stressors ranging within all of the various areas we take part in. So having the resource of OutMotoring is a joy due to your practice of (what must be) a business mandate of flawless operation and holding customers at a high level of esteem. I think we'd be living in a happier country if the interactions we have with other people during engagement of a common accomplishment were to use your model. I'm seeing deep respect at the root.
I thank you for what you do, and what you are. I recommend OutMotoring to anyone seeking the products that you carry. I offer my best wishes that you're always able to keep such a good thing going.

Perhaps at this point you might think that I'm some kind of nut case, but understand that I've been so impressed and pleased with my OutMotoring experiences that it became important to me that I spend time to write this, and choose my words in a way that you would understand exactly what I mean. I owned a business for twenty-five years and I put a lot of weight in what customer's would tell me. I offer this to benefit you and your fine operation.

Sincerely,

Mark
