Swift Springs was founded in Tokyo, Japan in 1997 and quickly made a name for itself in motorsports around the world. Swift Springs can be found in championship teams in JGTC, D1 Grand Prix, Super Taikyu Endurance, Le Mans 24hrs., and Formula Toyota.
Swift made Sport Springs keeps your quality ride you get from showroom, and adds a sporty feel and lower ride height for sport driving enthusiasts and style minded drivers who demand only the best. Swift did not start developing Sport Springs by trying to drop the ride height. Unlike others who only care about style, Swift approached to create lowering springs with 3 rules.
1 Keep or improve a smooth comfortable ride.
2 Increase handling, control, and performance.
3 Lower the vehicle within the each vehicle’s usable stroke.
Most end users understand and had experiences with the typical harsh and uncomfortable ride from lowering springs. Performance on lowering springs is often overlooked by manufactures because most lowering springs are design to cater appearance oriented customers. The results are usually bumpy corning that cause a decrease in traction, or excessive worn shocks cause by lowering the vehicle beyond the usable stroke. The problems with most lowering springs are quite simple. First is due to the lowering amount, and second, the coiling design of the spring.
Swift utilizes a less coil design to create a much more responsive spring. With fewer coils, we can completely eliminate the chances of coil binding and increase the amount of usable stroke. Also, fewer coils on lowering springs will create a faster reaction speed towards any road conditions. So instead of skipping on the harsh road surface, the spring will reacted to the road surface as needed.
Un-sprung mass are also less on our lowering springs. With a fewer coil design, you can expected a far lighter spring. It will take less effort for the spring to compress and rebound. Therefore, with swift, street users or track users will experience an increase of predictability during high speed corners and straight line traction.
Swift Sport Mach Springs are manufactured with a unique spring compound H5S.TW. This super-strong material requires a double shot peening process to keep the spring's shape. The result is a high tensile strength spring requiring fewer coils than other brands, reducing overall weight. Springs are preset to reduce sag experienced after installation and given a 2-stage melamine coating providing an attractive layer of protection before final shipping to the U.S.
Relied upon by D1 champion and JGTC driver Nobuteru Taniguchi, as well as Isami Amemiya, Owner of the renowned tuning company REAmemiya, Sprint springs offer both the professional racer and weekend enthusiast the greatest level of control on the track.
