SPECIALIZED DAMPER
Fully Made-to-Order Shock Absorbers, Springs, Upper Mounts etc for All Sorts of Vehicle Models
■What is SPECIALIZED DAMPER ?
1. Fully Made-to-Order !
Under SPECIALIZED DAMPER program, we design and manufacture products fully tailored to each and every customer's needs.
We guarantee that SPECIALIZED DAMPER, produced one by one by skilled engineers, gives the highest level of customer satisfaction.
2. For Vehicle of Any Kind !
SPECIALIZED DAMPER can be produced for any type of vehicle; vintage cars, super cars, race cars, campers, K-cars, etc.
We can of course take vehicles for which TEIN products used to be available, but also we can even accept vehicles for which no company offers such performance parts.
For some strut type suspensions (spindle etc), OE shock absorbers with springs and upper mounts assembled have to be sent in and OE shock absorbers are used and modified to produce SPECIALIZED DAMPER, to make sure the correct fitting.
* SPECIALIZED DAMPER may not be available for some vehicle models, due to suspension structure.

EXIGE EA11R E24
3. Any Specifications !
SPECIALIZED DAMPER can be made to desired specifications, from street use to circuit use, based on vast data and experience gained in and through mass-production products.
Besides ever-popular ride height adjustable dampers (thread-type & full-length adjustable type), we can also make OE-equivalent types (replacing inner components of OE shock absorbers with TEIN's).
SPECIALIZED DAMPER can be designed to be compatible with EDFC series (Electronic Damping Force Controller) to enable in-car damping force adjustment.
*Some features and/or mechanisms may not be available for some vehicle models, due to suspension structure.

SPECIALIZED DAMPER is also customizable (damping force change, stroke change etc.) at the time of overhaul.
