NOTE 1: All MCS damper kits are built to order so expect 2-6 weeks build time after you order. If you order online, you will be billed immediately. If you would like to call in the order (we prefer that) we only charge a deposit for the shocks up front, with the rest billed when they ship out to you.
This entry is for the 2013-2019 Cadillac ATS and ATS-V.
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.
A really nice feature of these entry-level TT1 single adjustable non-remote dampers is that they are upgradeable to a reservoir type damper at any time. “We decided to design a modular damper system with interchangeable parts to make it possible to upgrade these ‘entry-level’ dampers to a 2-Way adjustable reservoir damper system down the road. Many customers will benefit from this and will be able to upgrade without the need of investing into a complete new damper set when upgrading their program,” according to Lex at MCS.
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.

- Unique to Vorshlag:
+ 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 of Vorshlag 68-75mm Spanner Wrenches for MCS front coilover strut spring perches. These are needed to loosen/tighen the 2-piece perches on each strut.
+ MCS kits ordered from Vorshlag are shipped to our facility first. This way we can test fit any optional parts (springs, camber plates, etc) to the as-built struts and shocks, and give everything a final Quality Check. Almost all other MCS dealers drop-ship these kits direct from MCS to the customer.
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. A fully optioned package includes a significant discount 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 street and 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, smaller diameter coilover springs and MCS struts.
REAR SHOCK MOUNTS : When used as a coilover the rear shocks require heavy duty mounts. While optional, we recommend using spherical mounts with high performance dampers. When additional spring forces are placed on the mount, the spherical mounts are required. This results in sphericals at both ends of the rear shock to transmit reactions to shock forces instantly and direct - something that shows up on a shock dyno plot.
FRONT SWAYBAR END LINKS : Any time you have a height adjustable suspension, you should use length adjustable swaybar end links to eliminate any preload of the swaybar. We use Whiteline endlinks that work perfectly for the front endlink location. It includes a pair of beefy, adjustable length units made with aluminum hex bar and OEM style ball joint ends - sealed from the weather, so they rotate well and last a very long time. You can fine tune the endlink length with this design, and we have torture tested this same setup on our MCS equipped TT3 Mustang - with massive grip levels and lots of abuse. You can try to piece something together on your own, or just hit the "easy button" for this option and we can ship a set of these with your MCS kit.
SPRING RATES : While MCS provides you with the dampers only, Vorshlag offers the unique option for racers to pick their own front and rear spring rates at a reduced cost. These options will include new Hyperco, Eibach 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.
