FEATURES

BAMBER <br /> SPEC Icon

BAMBER
SPEC

Bamber spec see's the introduction of an overhaul of the internal sealing and lubrication process. Featuring revised seal blocks to house high-end European seals, O-rings and oils for dramatically increased reliability and longevity.

DAMPER <br /> ADJUSTMENT Icon

DAMPER
ADJUSTMENT

Our dampers come with 12 clicks of damper adjustment between hard and soft settings. Each click is quite powerful and very noticeable. The way the damper adjuster works, is it controls the flow of an amount of oil that bypasses the valving system. Closing (setting harder) the adjuster restricts oil flow making the damper firmer and more controlled, while opening (setting softer) the adjuster allows the oil to flow easier which makes the damper softer and less controlled.

HEIGHT <br /> ADJUSTMENT Icon

HEIGHT
ADJUSTMENT

Our dampers come with height adjustment which controls the ride height of the vehicle. Contrary to most other products around this price point, MCA Suspension products use “Critical Length Technology rather than “base height adjustment” meaning that instead of using the bottom mount position to adjust the ride height, the spring seat position is adjusted instead. This is the same system as used on true, high end suspension products. MCA Suspension always builds as much height adjustment into our products as realistically possible, however the exact amount my vary vehicle to vehicle and product to product for a number of reasons.

1 YEAR <br /> WARRANTY Icon

1 YEAR
WARRANTY

Voston offers a 1 year warranty for suspension components. This warranty covers bushes, bearings, rubbers and seals. However we often cover more (this is decided on a case by case basis) as we strive to make sure that the experience our customers have when using our products is the best possible. One of the main areas we differ to our competitors is that we also go out of our way to help make sure that any warranty claims are handled in a speedy and extremely convenient manner.

DESIGNED IN<br /> AUSTRALIA Icon

DESIGNED IN
AUSTRALIA

All of our suspension setups have been designed in Australia by MCA Suspension. Unlike many of our competitors, no copied setups here. Even the large majority of individual components used in MCA Suspension products (including mounts, springs, internal sealing components, spring seats, shafts, etc) have been designed by MCA Suspension.

MONOTUBE <br /> DESIGN Icon

MONOTUBE
DESIGN

Generally speaking, regarding vehicle suspension, there are two types of dampers in the way that they operate internally. Monotube and Twin-Tube. Twin-Tubes often are cheaper alternatives and don’t have the same potential as Monotubes (for example, most factory dampers and cheaper factory replacement dampers are twin-tubes). MCA Suspension only uses Monotube Suspension, as does all true high-end suspension brands.

WHERE APPLICABLE

CAMBER <br /> ADJUSTMENT Icon

CAMBER
ADJUSTMENT

Where-ever possible, MCA Suspension always features camber adjustment. Camber leans the top of your tyre in and out. Generally speaking, for road use, the straighter your tyre is (vertically) the more even the tyre wear might be, but the performance will lack. Leaning the tyre in at the top for more negative camber might help with tyre and fender clearance, and will also help improve the steering feel and vehicle performance, but may hurt tyre wear. For assistance as to what wheel alignment settings to run, please visit the technical section on this website. Please note: how the camber adjustment is achieved if it’s at the front, rear or both ends of the car will vary.

HELPER<br /> SPRINGS Icon

HELPER
SPRINGS

In the large majority of cases MCA Suspension products feature Helper Springs. A “helper spring” is a light weight spring who’s job is to keep the main spring captive if a specific setup and ride height combination mean that when the vehicle is jacked up with wheels off the ground, the spring may be loose. Thanks to the Helper Spring, the main spring will be held up and seated even in these rare situations.

RUBBER <br /> TOP MOUNTS Icon

RUBBER
TOP MOUNTS

In most cases, except for MacPherson Struts, we will use our own design of rubber tops. These rubber top mounts offer the needed amount of flexibility while also offering stability and minimised extra movement. They are even used in our 1100rwhp, Red Series equipped Time Attack 86.

SEPARATED <br /> SYSTEM Icon

SEPARATED
SYSTEM

In some cases the factory design of spring and damper setup is to have them sitting separate from eachother. In these cases we will often keep using that basic layout and factory mountings.

COILOVER <br /> DESIGN Icon

COILOVER
DESIGN

The true meaning of the word “coilover” is when a damper has a spring mounted around the outside of it. This is a common design of suspension for vehicles. In some cases we will be able to convert Separate Designs to a Coilover Design also.

NON-INVERTED <br /> STRUT Icon

NON-INVERTED
STRUT

When a strut type of suspension setup is used by the factory, there is the option to replace it with an “inverted” type or “non-inverted” type. MCA Suspension has used both designs over the years, but for products like Red Series and below, we use our non-inverted design in the large majority of cases, even for motorsport applications. Even our 1100rwhp, downforce loaded Time Attack 86 has run them for years. For more information on these, please visit our technical section.

OPTIONS

ADJUSTER <br /> EXTENDERS Icon

ADJUSTER
EXTENDERS

Adjuster Extenders help gain access to the damper adjuster knobs in situations where the adjuster knob is hidden behind metal, trim or is simply difficult to reach. These are a rubber coated flexible steel cable with machined anodised aluminium ends which attach to either the existing adjuster knob, or screw directly onto the top of the damper’s shaft depending on the design.
