ST XTA COILOVERS

For those who demand the absolute best performance comes the ST XTA coilover. The full driving behaviour of your car can be adjusted using KW damper technology along with an adjustable aluminium uniball top mount for fine-tuning of the camber and caster!

Performance driving in mind
ST XTA coilovers feature KW damping technology which allows the suspension to be made either stiffer or softer depending on the driving conditions. This damping adjustment is made on the upper end of the chromed piston rod allowing the setup to be changed almost instantly. If the rebound force is increased, the car will drive with even more track stability and further reduced bodyroll. If the rebound force is decreased, the car will feel more comfortable when on the move. For increased performance, the ST XTA features an aluminium adjustable top mount allowing the camber and caster to be adjusted depending on your driving needs or vehicle setup.

Easy lowering adjustment
Like all ST coilovers the lowering adjustment is made via a continuous thread on the galvanized strut. This even allows the lowering to be made even when the kit is installed by turning the spring plate higher or lower! NOTE: The lowering of each vehicle differs greatly with ST XTA coilovers due to the type of construction. For example, older vehicles such as the Honda Civic (EJ9) can be lowered between 40-75mm with ST XTA coilovers, while newer models such as the Audi S3 (8P) can be lowered between 10-40mm due to being much lower from the factory.

KW Engineering: Exclusive for ST suspension
The high-quality ST XTA coilover is based on the twin-tube damping principle of low friction combined with pressure-resistant damper housings. Manufactured directly at KW, a mono block guide and seal package reduces the friction of the damper as well as protecting it against corrosion and dirt. Each galvanized strut is sealed multiple times to ensure maximum longevity in ALL weather conditions.

Features:

  • Latest damping technology for maximum longevity
  • Reduced system friction for effective damping adjustment
  • Individual lowering within the tested adjustment range
  • Front and rear axle (when possible) with thread adjustment
  • Galvanized coilover struts with additional coating for an optimized corrosion protection
  • Complete solution with adjustable spring plate, race spring system and bumpers with dust protection
  • Aluminium adjustable uniball top mounts (when possible)
  • Scaled camber adjustment (optionally also caster), when possible
  • Externally adjustable damping

Who Is ST Suspensions?

ST Suspensions (under the name Suspension Techniques) is a Southern California-based company that started back in the early 1980s. Suspension Techniques developed a wide range of innovative products and solutions in response to market demands for better suspension parts. Using only the best materials, cutting-edge technologies, and streamlined processes, ST was able to offer excellent value for their products in the automotive aftermarket. Not long after its inception, ST Suspensions garnered a solid reputation in the sport compact suspension tuning industry. This led them to even greater success as countless tuners and enthusiasts all over the globe came to trust and choose ST Suspensions for their driving needs.

The Sporttech & Speedtech lowering springs along with the ST way bar kits became a household name in the tuning scene in the '80s and '90s. And, in 1995, this newfound success attention attracted a new owner, Belltech Sport Trucks, who brought a whole new dimension to the ST lineup. With this acquisition, the ST brand was relocated from Southern California to Fresno, CA.

Bought By KW Coilover

ST was later bought by German Suspension manufacturer KW Automotive GmbH in 2005. Well known for its internationally renowned KW Coilover height adjustable suspension systems, the company purchased both Belltech Sport Trucks and Suspension Techniques to launch KW Automotive North America Inc. Having such extensive resources and backing one of the leading suspension manufacturers in Europe, ST Suspensions was able to innovate itself and develop products that match and exceed those produced by other brands on the market. Rocking its current nameplate of ST Suspensions, the brand boasts an impressive lineup of race-winning technology that has been expertly re-engineered for street cars in all markets (America, European, and Asian).

Commitment to Quality Products

The infusion of ST's new parent company took the suspension brand to the next level, expanding not only its application range but also adding the innovative ST Coilover program modeled after the KW Variant 1 coilover design. Today, ST Suspensions is pleased to offer some of the best suspension packages available on the market. Its kits are designed to work well not only on the street but on the track as well.

What's more, all ST Suspensions' parts are designed to fit perfectly in the original part location without any modifications needed. This allows the end-user to simply bolt on the part and go for a seamless installation process and quality customer experience.
