The (UL) Ultra-Lite Coilover System is the ultimate in all-around performance and handling. It features the aluminum pillow ball upper mounts and independent ride height and spring pre-load adjust-ability. For the serious Motorsports competitor, the (UL) Coilover System incorporates a larger diameter premium racing damper/shock that features an aluminum housings for an approximate 10% decrease in weight making them the competitor’s choice for those watching un-sprung weight and allows for longer more consistent damping during competition/racing sessions. With all the adjustment and spring options, it is possible to set up the vehicle to meet all situations and scenarios.
The addition of front Sealed Roller Bearing Top Spring Seats and Independent Rear Top Spring Seats eliminate spring bind and promote proper rotation and response during steering in this MacPherson strut application and allows for proper movement/actuation of rear upper pillow ball mount.
POWERTRIX (UL) Ultra-Lite coilovers use heat tempered forged steel bottom mounting cups, the location in which it bolts to the car, for maximum strength where it is needed the most.
The (UL) Ultra Lite Road/Track Coilovers aluminum shock bodies make an entire assembly approximately 2-3 lbs. lighter than the standard (RT) Road/Track coilover assembly. Though this does not sound like a lot, it can make a big difference in performance when the dynamics of sprung vs. un-sprung weight is considered.
Sprung weight is defined as a parts weight while in motion or constant oscillation. Un-sprung weight is the actual weight of the part as it is at rest or not in motion. Sprung weight is calculated to be approximately 3-4 time its un-sprung weight.
Therefore a coilover assembly that is 2-3 time lighter than another can be as much as 6-12 lbs. lighter while in motion, so calculating that savings on each corner of the car can be as much as 24-48 lbs. of weight savings.

For best results, we recommend upgrading to the Swift Springs.
SWIFT spring composition is manufactured using their own proprietary steel alloy “HS5.TW”. This material was formulated in order to maintain the 4 major performance factors listed below, as well as achieving the fastest reaction speed possible to get compliance on road surface conditions.
“SWIFT springs are created with proprietary winding methods, as well as some other trade secrets focused on ensuring the their product separates them from the standard market.”
The 4 Factors that separate Swift from the rest of the spring industry:
- Consistent spring rate throughout the stroke = more consistent performance
- The largest amount of stroke to maximize suspension motion.
- The highest durability against loss of spring height = excellent material memory prevents springs sag over.
- Extremely light weight to reduce sprung weight increasing over all agility.
