All MCS damper kits are built to order so expect an estimated 2-6 week build time after you order. If you chose to order online, you will be billed immediately. If you would like to call in the order (we prefer that) we process a deposit for the shocks up front, with the rest billed when they are complete.
The MCS RR2 external double adjustable damper is the perfect solution for Time Trial competitors, Club Racers, and Autocrossers. This damper set features a full 18 settings of rebound control and a full 15 settings of compression control, both over a wide range and valved unique to each vehicle model's specific requirements. Dampers are more than just a number of adjustments and click count though – the shape of the resulting curves is specifically engineered to give your car the most grip through the range of surface conditions and dynamic inputs your vehicle experiences in a competition environment.
All the MCS dampers are built in the USA. They are fully rebuildable, serviceable and can be custom valved and upgraded any time here in the USA.
Adjustment range of 18 different settings for rebound control
Adjustment range of 15 different settings for compression control
Monotube design front and rear
Nitrogen pressure is adjustable if required
Includes standard spring hardware (springs and camber plates are not included)
2 Front MCS External Double Adjustable (18 adj, Rebound, 15 adj. Compression) Monotube Struts with Remove Reservoirs
MCS Front Spring Perches for 60mm springs and your OEM upper strut mounts (removed when bought with camber plates)
In addition -
We include a 1.5mm Allen wrench tool, which is used to tighten the rebound knobs onto the adjustment shaft.
Also included free of charge is a pair of68-75mm Spanner Wrenches for MCS front coilover strut spring perches. These are needed to loosen/tighten the 2-piece perches on each strut.
Choose the appropriate options and model alterations from the drop down menus below. These options will affect the final price as shown for each option.All optional packages and parts include significant discounts when purchased with shocksrather than buying the parts separately.
CAMBER PLATES: We highly recommend Vorshlag camber plates be used with MCS damper kits. Over-sized spherical bearings are designed to withstand the rigors of street and track abuse. All components are plated for maximum corrosion resistance and long life. Ordering this option includes the associated Vorshlag upper spring perches made to work with these plates, 60mm springs and MCS struts.We need to know if you have an E46 M3 or E46 non-M chassis.Please note that in the "order notes".
REAR SHOCK MOUNTS:Vorshlag's new and improved Spherical Rear Shock Mounts (RSMs) for the BMW E30/36/46 are back!Optional Rear Shock Mounts include Vorshlag Spherical design or Heavy Duty rubber E46 M3 style. We recommend the spherical RSMs for most users that see any competition use, such as autocross or track events. If the car is a daily driven vehicle only and/or the user is worried about bad roads and any additional NVH transmitted through a rear spherical mount, then choose the HD rubber style instead. Our HD rubber RSMs will be machined (by Vorshlag) to fit the 12mm diameter upper pins on the MCS rear shocks at no additional charge (BMW mounts are made for a 10mm diameter upper pin). The advantage to spherical RSMs is their ability to transmit reactions to shock forces instantly and direct - something that shows up on a shock dyno plot.
RSM REINFORCEMENT KIT: Many BMW models are prone to cracks near the rear, upper shock mount bolt holes from both street/track use with higher cornering loads (and higher damper forces) as well as normal street use over extended time periods. Bolt these steel reinforcement plates on top of the rear shock tower sheet metal to strengthen this known weak area and prevent these cracks. Can be used with OEM style rubber RSMs or spherical RSMs. Can be bolted or welded in place. To install just place above the shock tower, underneath the RSM top nuts, as shown below - takes mere minutes to install. Our RSM kit can be found here.
SPRING RATES: While MCS provides you with the dampers only, We offer the unique option for racers to pick their own front and rear spring rates at a reduced cost. These options will include new Hyperco or Swift springs from our recommended packages. The spring options listed include our GT package for daily driven cars, the GTS package for street cars that are also used in autocross and/or track events and the GTR package for race cars that predominantly see track use.If you would like to order custom rates not listed here, please give us a call. This can be arranged for typically no extra cost.
