OVERVIEW

Supashock Street & Track Series Coilovers offer the perfect combination of track orientation and street-friendly ride quality, the benchmark for performance drivers. Supashock engineers balance the optimal spring rate with damping force to give you the most responsive and accurate handling coilovers for your vehicle. 

The Mitsubishi Evo is a high-performance sports sedan designed to be a rally racing car for the road, known for its powerful turbocharged engines, advanced all-wheel drive system, and sporty styling. Over the years, Mitsubishi released ten generations of the Evo; each with their own unique features and improvements.

The Evo is known for its advanced technology and features, including active yaw control, which helped to improve the car's handling and stability, and Super Active Center Differential, which distributes power between the front and rear wheels for optimal traction.

With Supashock’s Evo 7, 8 and 9 coilovers, you can use notable features such as increased suspension stiffness and adjustable ride height to improve performance and ride quality without compromising what makes your Evo one of the most iconic rally cars of all time.

What stock suspension does the Evo 7, 8 and 9 come with (and why is it worth switching out)?

The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 7, 8, and 9 come with a stock suspension system that includes inverted front struts and multi-link rear suspension with adjustable shock absorbers. While this stock suspension is adequate for daily driving and occasional spirited driving, it is not optimized for high-performance track use or aggressive driving.

It is worth switching out the stock suspension for a more advanced and customisable coilover suspension system for improved handling, responsiveness, and adjustability. Coilovers allow for the fine-tuning of the suspension to suit specific driving styles and conditions. Additionally, coilovers are designed to withstand the stresses of high-performance driving and provide better feedback to the driver.

What are the differences between the Evo 7, 8 and 9?

The differences between the Evo 7, 8 and 9 are;

  • The Evo 7 was powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produced 276 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. The Evo 8 had the same engine, but with a few updates that increased power output to 286 horsepower and 289 lb-ft of torque. The Evo 9, by comparison, had a 2.0-liter engine that produced 286 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque.
  • The Evo 7 had a more rounded body style compared to the sharper angles of the Evo 8 and 9. The Evo 8 and 9 also had a redesigned front end with a more aggressive front bumper and larger grille. The Evo 9 had additional brake cooling ducts on the front bumper.
  • The Evo 7 and 8 had a similar interior, with the Evo 8 featuring updated materials and a new instrument cluster. The Evo 9 had a redesigned center console with a new audio system.
  • The Evo 8 and 9 featured Bilstein shocks and Eibach springs, while the Evo 7 had suspension components from Showa.
  • The Evo 7 and 8 had a five-speed manual transmission, while the Evo 8 (MR model) and 9 had a six-speed manual transmission.
  • The Evo 7 weighed approximately 1415 kg, while the Evo 8 and 9 weighed around 1540 kg. 

 

INVERTED MONOTUBE COILOVER DESIGN

Supashock strongly recommends selecting the Inverted Monotube Coilover option for your vehicle where available, for several reasons:

  • The lateral force experienced by the damper is exerted on the outer cylinder, rather than the damper shaft, piston, and their seals. The result is greater overall rigidity, resistance to bending and less susceptibility to damage than standard design coilovers.
  • Monotube configuration of the inverted coilover offers greater piston area, oil capacity and separation of oil and gas. This configuration offers consistent and tuneable damping in comparison to a twin-tube damper design.
  • Greater surface area and oil volume allows for better thermal dissipation (cooling).

 

STANDARD MONOTUBE COILOVER DESIGN

Supashock’s Standard Monotube Coilover design is far superior to Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) designs. The monotube configuration offers greater piston area, oil capacity and separation of oil and gas, giving you greater performance, strength, cooling and adjustability. Supashock coilovers offer consistent and tunable damping compared to a twin-tube damper commonly found in OEM designs. 

 

FEATURES AND SPECIFICATIONS

  • Monotube Coilover Design.
  • 30 clicks of adjustable damping (1-way), adjusts compression and rebound simultaneously.
  • Camber adjustable (where applicable) via camber plate or slotted strut foot.
  • Full-length adjustable ride height.
  • Increased suspension stiffness
  • Upper mounts are pillow ball or OEM configuration, dependent on vehicle model.
  • Forged aluminium, adjustable spring seat and locking collar.
  • Fully serviceable/rebuildable.
  • 55mm steel shock body on inverted coilover designs.
  • 'Wave' alloy steel thrust washer on inverted coilover designs.
  • Ready to install.

 

Please note:

  • Pillow ball upper mounts do add greater road feel for increased handling and accuracy but can result in torsional spring noise occasionally. There is no detriment to the function or safety of coilovers. Returns under warranty for noises associated with the pillow ball upper mounts will not be considered. For investigative work related to coilover noise, workshop rates will apply if products are found to have no issues.
  • In some vehicle set-ups, the spring will be separate from the damper. This design will sometimes be respected, and then you will receive a damper and spring separately. Height will generally be changed via a supplied adjustable spring seat.
  • Photos shown are inverted monotube design front and rear coilovers. Actual product will vary depending on vehicle model and coilover configuration chosen.
