MCS TT1 Single Adjustable Monotube Dampers (BRZ/GR86/FR-S)

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.


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,”  Lex Carson, Motion Control Suspension

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.

Key Features

  • Monotube design front and rear
  • Nitrogen pressure is adjustable if required
  • Includes standard spring hardware (springs and camber plates are not included)

Parts Included:

  • 2 Front MCS Single Adjustable (18 adj, Rebound only) Monotube Struts
  • 2 Rear MCS Single Adjustable (18 adj, Rebound only) Monotube Shocks
  • MCS Front Spring Perches for 60mm springs and your OEM upper strut mounts (removed when bought with camber plates)
  • Unique to Vorshlag: We include the 1.5mm allen wrench used to tighten the rebound knobs onto the adjustment shaft.

Please note: These dampers are designed and built shorter than OEM length and are not legal for SCCA Stock Class  This kit should not be used with Stock Class spring perches. MCS shocks designed specifically for SCCA can be found HERE.


    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 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 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, 60mm springs and MCS struts. 


    REAR SHOCK MOUNTS : Optional Rear Shock Mounts include Vorshlag Spherical design built with the same oversized spherical bearing as our camber plates.

    We recommend the spherical RSMs for most users that see any competition use, such as autocross or track events. 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.

    These shock mounts give us the opportunity to optimize the suspension one step further utilizing our radial bearing spring perch as well!  Adding a the radial bearing spring perch eliminates any spring bind created when the shocks and springs are compressed.


    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 or Swift springs from our recommended packages and optional Eibach tender springs. 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. We offer these without tender springs as a cost savings measure, or with tender springs on the rears to get the most from the MCS dampers. 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.

    All Hyperco springs are measured in inch lengths and rate is in pounds of force per inch of travel (lbs/in). In order to convert the inch lengths to metric lengths, multiply the length by 25.4 (divide by 25.4 to convert from metric to inches). In order to convert lbs/in to kgf/mm, you need to divide the lbs/in number by 56. In order to convert lbs/in to Newtons/mm, you need to divide the lbs/in number by 5.7.

    All Swift springs are measured in millimeter lengths and rate is in kilograms of force per millimeter of travel (kgf/mm). In order to convert the metric lengths to inch lengths, divide the length by 25.4 (multiply by 25.4 to convert from inches to metric). In order to convert kgf/mm to lbs/in, you need to multiply the kgf/mm number by 56.

      • 2 Front 60mm Coilover Springs

    Installation Tips : The MCS coilover for the 86 chassis includes front struts with bolt on bracketry that are made to secure the factory brake lines and ABS speed sensor harness. 

    As always, we will bolt this on at Vorshlag so you don't have to fight the battle of figuring out which way these go on.

    These are side specific and can be put on wrong in several ways. Please note the two images above to verify that these brackets are installed as intended. Thanks!

    Also you might want to order these shorter Whiteline end links for the front swaybar, as the MCS coilover strut mounting bracket is much lower than stock (as with almost any coilover strut - this has to be lowered). We have the appropriate shorter length endlinks to make these bolt on without pre-loading the swaybar. Call us for to order or for more info!
