DDMWorks Slingshot Coilover upgrade

The Slingshot is a lot of fun straight from Polaris, but some simple changes like upgraded coilovers can really improve the handling and ride comfort. The DDMWorks ACS (Adjustable Coilover System) offers a new option that improves your handling, ride comfort and does it at a great price also. To achieve this, we offer a fully adjustable system that allows each Slingshot owner the opportunity to make their ride handle just how they want, not a "one size fits all" approach.

The DDMWorks ACS is a twin tube, 3 way adjustable (Compression, rebound and ride height) coilover system that uses spherical ball joints on the top and bottom to mount securely to the suspension. The 3 way adjustment on these shocks allows you to change the way the shocks respond to the road with a simple turn of a knob. There are 19 clicks of compression and rebound adjustment on the shock body and enough threads on the shock to allow you to raise your Slingshot 1" or lower it down more than 2". That wide amount of adjustment is able to be done because of the unique valving on these shocks that allows more stroke than similar priced coilovers. The valving in these coilovers is also not an off the shelf part, but instead something that has been specifically tuned to the Slingshot.

The coilover set comes already pre-assembled for all 3 wheels with all spacers and hardware needed to mount. They ship to you ready to install on your Slingshot. Instructions and suggestions are given in the instructions on how to adjust the coilovers to make them perform how you want to get the most from your ride, or a call to our techline can help you set them up. All sets of coilovers are made here in the USA, hand assembled and come with a full 2 year warranty on parts.

Just from looking at the picture it appears that you kept the diameter small for those that like to run the maximum width rear tire?

The kit does still uses 2.5" springs like all the other coilover options out there, so the standard tire widths still apply with this option also.

Are these JRI brand ?

In the market for coilovers .... your info here says it will lower at least 2" but on slingmods.com it says it will lower only 1" .... what is the real drop on these coilovers ?

With our coilovers you can actually lower the Slingshot enough to put the frame on the ground and still have a little bit of compression travel on the shocks. We have also been able to raise the Slingshot 1" and still have some rebound, these have a very long stroke on them. Since the ride height is adjustable with these shocks, you can put them at stock ride height, raise the Slingshot 1", lower the Slingshot 1" or more, or also set it anywhere in between. The stock ride height to 1" lower are the real sweet spot for the stroke of the shock and I am guessing that is why Slingmods is listing it that way, not sure exactly though as we do not write their product descriptions.

Hope that helps, let us know if there is anything else we can answer or help you with though,
Dave
