Fortune Auto engineers were tasked with a focused goal to make the Generation 8 500 Series dampers the best single adjustable system on the market at a very affordable price point. All systems are completely built in-house by our engineering staff in Richmond, Virginia. They insist on building bespoke suspension in order to offer the best quality control in the industry.
Fortune Auto approaches the science of suspension with a mentality of customization that has raised the industry's standards of performance.
Note: Front lower mounts require cutting of front strut tubes and welding on of the coilover lower mounts to the steering spindles.

Occasional Track Use
Digressive piston technology allows for stiff low-speed compression/rebound force. This gives more control of driver inputs such as roll, dive, and squat. However, at fast stroke speeds (i.e. high speed bumps) the suspension becomes supple in response to bumps and irregularities in the road for maximum control.
