.:Trinity Autosport:. CKS Coilovers

Hi guys,

CKS, Corner Konnection Systems, accommodates the needs of any automotive enthusiast, offering a track-tested, efficient, safe, and reliable coilover. Our goal is to help customers win at the track, improve lap times, or simply help with better enjoyment of your car.

CKS coilovers are built using only the highest grade materials. The upper mounts, lower mounts and spring perch are made out of 6061 T6 aluminum, and rely on SAE 9254 (500,000 times of compression test) springs and SCM440 hardened piston rods. Giving you a smooth and solid feeling ride, it doesn't matter if you're driving through city pot holes, or racing on a track at 100+ mph. The bottom line is that after all those years of development, CKS gives you a one of a kind coilover and a guaranteed peace of mind knowing you're driving with the most reliable, safe and highest performing coilover on the market.

These CKS Coilovers offer 3 different setups: Street, Street/Track and Full Race. This allows you to pick how aggressive you want your coilovers to ride. They also offer 24 way dampening adjustability with a 12kg spring rate on the front and 10kg spring rate on the rear, making these CKS coilovers a true set of fully adjustable coilovers.

-mono-tube shock design (inner polished seamless 55mm steel tube)
-44mm linear characteristic internal piston
-Italian IP F.A 5W shock oil: very high viscosity index guarantees efficient shock absorbing movement at any ambient temperature.
-hard anodized forged aluminum upper mounts spring perch and lower mount (Macpherson will be steel lower mount)
-24 way dampening adjustability with a 12kg spring rate on the front and 10kg spring rate on the rear, making these CKS coilovers a true set of fully adjustable coilovers
-pillowball upper mount with camber plates (MacPherson only)
-new front sway bar links are included
-sway bar link brackets are built into the lower mounts and reinforced vs. an aluminum sway bar link bracket seen on other brands

Every single set is build to order. Turn around time is usually 3-4 working days
M3 CKS coilovers: retail, $2100. $1850
-free shipping within the US
-installation available for local customers

Suspension With Intelligence from Tohatsu: available upon request
-Swift springs: +$300

Please contact myself, nerwyll@trinityautosport, or joe@trinityautosport for any orders and inquiries.
Thank you!

Hi guys,

I was curious about the "Swift" Springs; Are they for more performance? Or are they good for ride quality? (Smoother ride)

Any info is appreciated...

Also, it's a 3-day turn around for the set up to get in from time of payment?

recent feedback from one of our customers, CKS with Swift springs E60 M5 application:

"The CKS coilovers and SWIFT springs were everything you promised. The car now feels very nimble. I was really complaining a LOT when I first picked it up as it felt it was very "heavy" in the front with the stock suspension, even in "sport" mode. I have a 2008 Dinan 550i that I feel very comfortable throwing into corners but with the M5, well until now, not so much. However, now I am slinging this bad boy into tight turns and flying around curves. COMPLETELY different feel to the car. And as I said, it is a "sporty" NOT "bumpy" ride with the SWIFT springs-exactly as you described. Uh, and value....price for these things ROCKS. Can't imagine why I would spend more for the others we were talking about at first. (could be first time EVER that I saved cash on a mod and was thrilled with the end result).

A BIG part of the transformation of the beast! "

CKS is the bang for the buck. Has all the bells and whistles you need for a good price.
