Important note about the SEARCH feature:
Keep your search simple. Search by vehicle model only. Example; search for “Civic” instead of “1999 Honda Civic Si”
We use hard anodized 6061-T6 Aluminum with a genuine Japanese NMB Spherical Bearing on applicable mounts. Strut based suspensions will have camber adjustability. Some models come with a rubber isolator mount.
Some applications require you to transfer original upper mount.
Every shock is tested
There is no guess work to building shocks. Every shock we build is dyno tested to ensure a proper left :right match. Shocks are tested to ensure the shock will match your car and springs to give a smooth ride and respond properly. There is nothing worse than a shock that's valved incorrectly causing you to feel like you're sitting in a chair of bricks, or even worse, driving a pogo stick.
Monotube Shock Bodies
We use 52mm OD, fine-threaded nickel plated carbon steel bodies for corrosion resistance. Internal surfaces are impregnated with an anti-friction compound using a proprietary lapping process. The 4mm thick walls ensure durability. Our shocks are inverted with a 14mm internal piston rod, or upright using a 14mm (a-arm/ multi-link) or 20mm (strut) piston rod.
Inverted shocks on strut based applications only.
Bottom End Cap
We use a standard self healing rubber seal to charge our dampers. As an option, we can install an industrial grade stainless steel schrader valve (same fitting used to inflate tires). These valves are less likely to leak and make nitrogen recharging quick and easy.
Optional on upright shocks only.
Strut based suspensions use a steel lower mount with elongated mounting holes for additional camber adjustment. A-Arm & Multi-Link uses a 6061-T6 aluminum mount with high durometer bushing. Some mounts include tabs and brackets for sensors and brake lines when applicable.
2.5" ID Coil Springs
Our Novak and Overland suspensions come with our standard springs. On both of these models, you can upgrade to Eibach springs; which come standard on the Corsa and EnduroRC variants.
Not all applications allow the use of 2.5ID Eibach springs.

RaceWorks 172s Review & Installation:
Here's what RaceWorks customers have to say:
Brilliant! Fitted these to my 997 and they soak up terrible UK roads with perfection! My car feels brand new all over again. Renewed enjoyment!
I daily drive my car and these coilovers feel amazing. I do autocross in the spring and summer and they perform flawlessly!
I had the typical cheap suspension on my WRX and switched out to the Overland coilovers for the winter lift. Love them. 12/10 Would buy again!
There is a Street near my house that is horrible. Before I hated going down it. I was halfway down that street when I realized where I was. The suspension soaked up A LOT of the bumps. I couldn't believe it! I'm sitting LOWER than I was stock and the ride improved!

We know you have a lot of choices when it comes to buying coilovers for your car. We're glad you gave us the chance. We started small offering autocross suspensions for the Mazda Miata, lift suspensions for the Subaru Impreza, and finely balanced coilovers for Porsche 996 and Porsche 997. Practice makes perfect! - RaceWorks
Due to a recent surge in orders, our normal 2-3 week build time has been extended to 4-5 weeks on certain applications.
