TRD Sport Suspension Kit for Lexus CT200h
4 x Shock absorber & 4 x coil springs.
Lower approx: Front -20mm, Rear -15mm
The newly developed suspension system includes shock absorbers with surfaces coated with DLC (*1), which effectively reduces friction. Running tests by test drivers have resulted in optimized spring rates and damper attenuation, permitting a flexible ride and stable road holding.
(*1) DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) is a surface treatment technique in which carbon atoms are electro-deposited onto a chromium plating surface, producing a coating with a hardness comparable to diamond.
Advantages of DLC-coated shock absorbers
- The absorber rods move more smoothly, improving the efficiency of the suspension system.
- The steering response is improved without compromising riding comfort.
- Passenger fatigue is reduced by absorption of small, uncomfortable vibrations.
*Fitted in combination with the aero parts & member brace enables greater effectiveness.
