From now on we’ve got H&R coil-overs for Mazda MX-5 available in our onlineshop.
H&R Monotube Coil-Overs offer race-bred perfomance without sacrificing ride comfort. H&R coil-overs for Mazda MX-5 feature a threaded shock body that allows virtually infinite ride height adjustments to suit street or track use. H&R coil-overs for Mazda MX-5 enable lowering up to 60mm.
H&R coil-overs offer the following benefits:
- Inhouse development and manufacturing
- Adjustment wrenches included
- High-quality components for long life
- Trapezoid threaded shock body for virtually infinite height adjustment
- Monotube gas shock absorbers for precise handling response
- Inverted design reduces unsprung weight for precise handling
- H&R precision wound coil springs
- Zinc-phosphate coated shock tubes offer an attractive finish and corrosion protection
- Special applications available on request
The balanced combination of a sporty body and masterful weight distribution make the Mazda MX-5 a true fun car. This is also what the H&R experts think. But the suspension specialists still recognised plenty of driving dynamics potential, which was not exploited with the standard suspension. This “spoilsport” was eliminated and replaced by a made-to-measure mono-tube suspension.
The H&R coil-overs for Mazda MX-5 equipped with a trapezoidal thread for continuous height adjustment – from H&R’s point of view – offer the perfect combination of high-performance shock absorbers and springs. The strong look immediately catches the eye, as the standard 16-inch wheels self-confidently dive into the wheel houses. Thanks to the H&R coil over the roadster can be brought down up to 60 millimetres, without changing the remaining spring travel. The expressive appearance is, however, also confirmed by the driving characteristics: the lower centre of gravity and the suspension setup typical for H&R minimise the tendency to roll, ensure a very precise steering response and increase the fun factor enormously, especially in curves.
An alternative to this modification are H&R’s sport springs. They were designed to be combined with the MX-5 standard shock absorbers and turn the Japanese car into a cornering machine thanks to a lowering of approximately 30 millimetres.
The secret to such success? To put it simply, the technology H&R employs to develop cutting-edge suspension systems for competition use is the very same used to develop innovative suspension components for street-driven cars. For the eighth year straight, H&R has been named the supplier for the DTM teams of Mercedes. In addition, H&R maintains extensive involvement in several touring car, GT and Monoposto racing series, not to mention the Formula 1- where each circuit may have its own demanding characteristics. In the harsh environs of competition, H&R is able to test new materials and innovate production technologies that can help racing teams adapt to changing road conditions accurately and efficiently.
Clearly, H&R holds an advantage when it comes to developing competition suspension components, and it is this same flexibility and attention to detail that allows H&R to design and manufacture components like springs, shock absorbers and height-adjustable coil-overs for high-performance street use. Indeed, one of the greatest accomplishments an automotive component manufacturer can attain is to become an Original Equipment (OE) supplier for the automotive industry—and H&R has reached the highest echelon in the industry by supplying precision suspension components to some of the world’s greatest automobile manufacturers. For example, Porsche equips its ultra high-performance Carrera GT as well as its 996 & 997 GT II and GT III with H&R components, while Volkswagen uses them on the Golf R32, the fastest Golf ever. And recently, Mercedes Benz chose H&R suspension components for its CLK supercar, the CLK DTM AMG. Directly derived from Mercedes’ DTM race car, this special model is limited to a production run of 100 units, and with 580-bhp, is one of the fastest production street cars in the world.
All of H&R’s products are 100% made in Germany, and meet ISO 9001 Quality Assurance Standards as well as the rigid safety standards of the German TUV. In addition to the finest-quality materials and state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques, H&R prides itself in its ability to remain flexible in product development and production. Whether in motorsport competition or OE manufacturing, flexibility is key to fulfilling the many requirements of the industry today.
Simply put, H&R is more than just a suspension manufacturer — it is a company whose core philosophies are innovation, quality and performance.
