MCS Spec E46 Single Adjustable Monotube Dampers (BMW E46)


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.

Introduction

Vorshlag Motorsports is an authorized Motion Control Suspension dealer. The MCS TT1 single adjustable damper is far from basic. This damper set features a full 18 settings of rebound control over a wide range, unique to each vehicle model's specific requirements. Dampers are more than just a number of adjustments and click count – 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.

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.

Choose the appropriate options 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 shocks rather than buying the parts separately.



CAMBER PLATES : We highly recommend Vorshlag camber plates be used with MCS damper kits. You can easily adjust camber track side with Vorshlag camber plates. Over-sized spherical bearings are designed to withstand the rigors of track abuse. All components are plated for maximum corrosion resistance and long life. Please see the product entries on this website for more information about the Vorshlag camber plates and spring perches. Ordering this option includes the associated Vorshlag upper spring perches made to work with these plates, 2.25" springs and MCS struts

 

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. We recommend the spherical RSMs for competition use. 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.

 

VORSHLAG 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 : Hyperco springs for the Spec E46 package

  • 2 Front 2.25" Coilover Springs, 6" Long, 750#
  • 2 Rear 2.25" Coilover Springs, 5" Long, 850#
  • 2 Rear Spring Alignment Platforms
  • Pair of 60mm ID Rear Ride Height Adjusters - $200/pair, included in price of rear springs option
