Research on the racetrack has helped us develop the Fortune Auto 500 Series into a great all-around shock absorber. Using high quality components that meet our strict standards allows us to optimize comfort, reliability, and longevity.
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.
***Every Fortune Auto coilover is extensively dyno tested and matched with in specifications to insure a consistent and uniform set of coilovers. This rigorous testing has earned us our ISO certification.
Furthermore we incorporate features only found on our coilovers such as Seamless stainless steel monotubes, Forged lower mounts & proprietary nitrogen gas chambers.

Spring Upgrade? Why Swift Springs?
Swift springs of Japan noticed that most spring manufacturers use old silicone chrome material, which is not strong enough for automotive springs. Other manufacturers use a heat tempering method that damaged the strength of the material that inevitably require more coils, in turn, more weight.
The material was also suffering from a shortened life span. With springs like this leading the industry, Swift saw massive room for improvement.
Swift's R & D team created material, called H5S.TW, which is stronger then regular silicone chrome material. Because of this material, Swift could make the spring wire thinner, and could wind the springs with fewer coils, which greatly decreased weight while dramatically increasing available stroke.
In the end the choice is simple. Swift offers superior Duarbility, Stroke, Weight Savings, Suppleness and less coils producing less noise and coil binding
