Fortune Auto engineers had a focused goal to accomplish with our Generation 5 - 500 series dampers: to make the best single adjustable system on the market at a very affordable price point. All systems are completely built in-house by our engineering staff in Richmond, Virginia. We insist on building bespoke suspension in order to offer some of the best quality control in the industry. At Fortune Auto, we approach the science of suspension with a mentality of customization that has raised the industry’s standards of performance.
All Fortune Auto shock absorbers use Digressive piston technology. This technology allows for stiff low speed compression/rebound force which helps give better control of driver inputs such as roll, dive and squat. However, at fast stroke speeds (i.e. high speed bumps) the suspension is kept supple in response to bumps and irregularities in the road.
The ability to upgrade to 2-Way canisters at any time ensures that your investment is a sound one. Update your shocks without the need of investing into a complete new coilover system: simply send your 500 series shocks into our service center for the modular 2-Way upgrade. All 500 series dampers are fully rebuildable, serviceable, and can be custom valved at any time.
500 series damper shaft seals have 40% less drag than our previous models. This provides for less hysteresis and for superior control of driver inputs. Our new seals are made of a specially formulated Buna rubber compound that provides a great balance between reliability and performance! Since the shaft seal is the most important seal on the shock, a stronger seal will greatly improve quality and performance.
