GT-RR Debuts New Suspension Package

May 11, 2011 Comments off

The guys over at GT-RR.com have furthered their brand_RR lineup of parts with this new suspension. GT-RR has a history of working with the top producers for their projects, having also worked on collaborative projects with Amuse and Cosworth. In this case they’ve enlisted two of the leading suspension component producers to partner with them on the project. JRZ was sourced to provide the desired specification shocks for the system. Swift Springs of Japan was included to provide the 8 springs which are included (main and assist springs on each corner).

GT-RR calls this suspension their Ultimate Spec. They label it that because they’ve taken what they consider to be the best of the shock and spring world and combined it with a variable ride height lift system. The result they say is the ultimate suspension for GT-Rs which are used on both street and track. The suspension allows 3 inches of lift at the push of a button which allows for a low ride setting but for instant clearance upon demand. There is a video of their 2012 GT-R using the lift system which can be seen below.

Swift Springs out of Japan has been supplying Nissan’s official GT-R Super Taikyu team with springs and also supplies for Super GT race cars. GT-RR has told us that Swift and JRZ has both had a considerable hand in determining the final specifications of this suspension.

You can find more information on this system as well other JRZ and Swift products at GT-RR.
