-KERMATDI- is your EXCLUSIVE distributor for Shine Racing Service products!!!
These Shine Real Street spring set will let you start building a Shine Racing Real Street Suspension.
This is my favorite combination for an all round , 4 season , comfortable performance suspension!
Add Bilstein or Koni struts and shocks and a Shine Rear sway bar to complete the kit!
SRS suspension spring set includes front and rear replacement springs. Real Street Suspensions are designed to work in everyday conditions where you encounter both fast highway on-ramps and rough bumpy roads.
Volkswagens have between 65-70% of their weight over their front wheels which causes understeer. Larger front sway bars cause more understeer and unload the inside front wheel during hard cornering resulting in wheelspin. This is a major handicap, especially when autocrossing. Shine Racing suspensions are designed to minimize understeer and increase grip. See our listing for the Real Street Suspension kit, which comes with 4 springs, 4 shocks and an SRS custom-fabricated tubular rear sway bar.
The improvement over stock is simply amazing. Turn in is dramatically sharpened, and overall grip and dynamics greatly improved. Ride is stiffer than stock but much better than other spring kits on the market.
Parts are available separately, but best results are obtained with the complete kits.
Note: We now carry Springs specifically designed for the Mk4 VW TDIs
The Real Street Philosophy
HANDLING OVER LOOKS
Shine Racing Service made it s reputation developing race car suspensions and providing advice to the touring car racing community. It follows that when Dick Shine began developing suspensions for street cars handling was the primary concern. The Real Street Suspension is the result of years of development and testing.
COMFORT CONFIDENCE PERFORMANCE
The Real Street Suspension is all about controlling body roll. A car with very little roll is comfortable and confidence inspiring in the twisties and more stable in transition transfers less weight from the inside wheels and experiences less camber change resulting in more available grip and faster cornering speeds.
PROVIDING THE CORRECT GEOMETRY
The key to reducing body roll is working with the suspension geometry of the car and not against it. Contrary to popular belief lowering a car does not automatically improve handling performance and in most cases it actually hinders handling. By setting up the car at the proper ride height the cars tendency to roll is greatly reduced.
HIGH RATE SPRINGS
The springs included in the Real Street Suspension are significantly stiffer than the stock springs further reducing body roll under cornering loads without being so stiff as to create an unduly harsh ride.
SHINE REAR SWAY BAR
The Shine rear bar does a fantastic job of controlling body roll on the torsion beam rear axle. Lighter and stiffer than any other bar on the market. The Shine bar due to it s location in the beam(parallel to the stock bar)adds no unsprung weight no ground clearance issues and no friction filled linkages to bind up.
The Real Street Kit is a great bang for the buck performance upgrade producing handling unmatched by any other street suspension at any price. Your investment is safe as the shocks carry a lifetime warranty and the rest of the kit is guaranteed to the original owner for the lifetime of the car.
