The MCS 2W damper is a double-adjustable damper with external reservoirs which allow for adjustment of the gas pressure in the damper. Both compression and rebound damping forces are independently adjustable with the compression adjuster located on the reservoir head and the rebound adjuster located on the shaft-end.
Compression damping forces are controlled by a large blow-off valve located directly on the reservoir main piston for the most precise and accurate damping control, and not a needle valve with a smaller effective adjustment range before the needle is too far out of the orifice to influence flow.
Rebound damping forces are controlled through orifices located at the main piston assembly in the damper body and allow for precise hydraulic control of damper oil through the main piston. Utilizing orifices introduces the ability to have a wide operating range, avoiding pesky re-valves, consistency in damping adjustment per click, and virtually eliminates fatigue with usage.
Gas pressure can be adjusted through a schrader valve located at the end of the remote reservoir, allowing you to increase or decrease the overall support to the vehicle. Reservoir pressure can be adjusted between 100 – 275 PSI to help support the platform in fast cornering that generate large loads or allow more weight transfer to generate more traction in low grip scenarios.
These dampers are packed with technical features but with an elegantly clean execution. The monotube design is very stable with more oil capacity and better heat dissipation than twin tube dampers. Large shafts give extremely high, low-friction side-load support unmatched by shocks inverted and converted for strut applications. The large main piston gives quick, accurate damper response and the divider piston separates oil and gas, eliminating cavitation which often causes noise and sloppiness.
Remote reservoirs give superior fluid temperature control and are available (or standard depending on application) with Staubli dry-breaks for easy installation.
Upper mounts shown can be purchased separately. See below. We have chosen to include Swift Racing Springs with all our MCS coil-over kits. Swift springs are well known for their linear and consistent spring rates, superior materials, and low unsprung mass. All kits are designed for use with upper monoball mounts as shown. Some kits can be configured for OEM mounts, inquire if desired.
Kits available for all Porsche 996/997/991/986/987/981 & 718 models.
Each kit comes complete with:
All 996 rear shocks include Tarett Engineering rear drop link brackets.
996/997 Turbo and C4 kits require our Extended Front Drop Links.
996 GT2 and GT3 and GT3RS kits can reuse the existing GT3 front drop link brackets, or our extended drop link design could be added.
Spring Rates: Please indicate your desired spring rates in the notes at checkout. If unsure, let us know, and we can help make the best choice for your specific application.
Three and four way configurations also available, please enquire.
