So far only two both from TEIN

First Part # GSHCO-1UAS2

The shortened shell case design provides optimum damper stroke at lower than standard vehicle ride height. Vehicle ride height is adjustable via the ZT coated threaded sleeve. Updated internal components and external coatings increase durability and product life. Street Basis dampers are great for daily driving and spirited driving for all types of drivers.

ZT Corrosion Resistant Coating
Newly developed ZT coating for improved durability and hassle-free ride height adjustment. TEIN developed this coating in-house after stringent test and analysis procedures. Their engineers tested different coats, application methods, cleaning processes, etc… in their own brine salt water testing machine which simulates heavy solvents/ road salts used in cold weather climates.

Non-welded Adjustment Tube
Slip-fit threaded adjustment tube. Allows for damper body and threaded sleeve to be thoroughly coated for rust/ corrosion protection. The slip-fit allows a more thorough coating on the threaded section as well as powder coated damper body.

Revised Spring Seat and Thrust WasherRevised Aluminum Spring Seat and Delrin Thrust Washer are light weight and durable. This combination allows for smooth ride height adjustment. The new spring seats have a larger contact surface area and eliminate the need for a rubber spring seat.
