Suspension

Courtenay Suspension Kits

Right from the beginning, since 1984, we at Courtenay have been involved with the development of Vauxhall cars exclusively. Just one make, with just one purpose: to produce the best enhanced road car possible.

Competition has traditionally provided the inspiration and the proving ground for much high performance technology, which ultimately finds its place on the roads, but many do not appreciate the amount of redesign necessary to make the transition to the road successfully. It simply does not work, for instance, to just 'lift' a racing or rallying suspension and put it in a road car.

A racing car has a bang-hard set-up with virtually no travel. But then racing circuits are much smoother than your average (especially British!) road. A racing car on the road would be murderously uncomfortable, would handle dreadfully as it skips from bump to bump, and you would hardly see out of the rear view mirror for the vibration.... and racing cars don't have CD players that skip tracks on bumps!
A rally car is totally different: set high with plenty of travel to take the big bumps, but is made to be actually unstable to make it easier to slide about in preparation for taking corners. Fine for the Forests maybe, but hardly the thing for the highway.

The majority of proprietary aftermarket 'sports' suspension systems have their origins in motor sport and are very frequently also sourced in Continental Europe. Nothing 'politically incorrect' intended there, but they just don't seem to have the same sort of bumpy, twisty and patched-up (we think 'interesting') roads that we have! Consequently, we find that spring rates are not strong enough on rebound, yet often too strong on bounce.

So, we have sourced our own preferred options after many hours of testing various set ups.....

Astra H VXR Sprint on Track
Courtenay Sport Premium Trackday Suspension Kit
We offer two versions of an uprated OE damper and spring set up, both using Bilstein dampers, the budget priced Clubman kits and our preferred original Premium kits, in addition we also offer KW Coilover kits for serious fast road and trackday use.

Springs are a little stiffer than standard, but not by too much. Like the originals they are progressive - initially softish, but rapidly stiffening as they compress. They are lower, too, but not so low as to leave too little travel or over-deflect driveshafts. Roll stiffness is thereby much improved, but ride quality is still good.
The result? Crisper, sharper handling with a lower, sleeker stance - but with a ride quality that you don' t have to apologize for! Like Auto Express said.....

'Reworked' suspension with special springs and dampers gives a supple and absorbent ride, and allows superb stability and balance in high speed corners!.

Also note that we regard 2 litre engined Novas, Corsas and Tigras as legitimate models and we offer Suspension Kits especially for them. This is extremely important because the difference in overall weight and balance compared to standard is so great that specific spring and dampers set-ups are required for them. Only Courtenay offer such an option.

Coilover Suspension Kit
All suspension components from kits are available individually, although the full kit price offers a saving on the sum of its components.

Courtenay Sport Premium Suspension Kits (B12 Kits)

Our Premium Suspension kits, supplied with Bilstein B8 Yellow Dampers and uprated Eibach springs. Premium Kits are available for most models. For the ultimate fast road suspension set up, offering an excellent all round ride, handling and road holding set-up, Premium Kits include Eibach springs (*where available, except 2.0 Nova/Corsa).

Fitting: from £144 - £216.00 Mail Order Carriage from £15
Springs and Dampers can be supplied separately, however the kit price is discounted over the cost of the items supplied separately.
We use and recommend Bilstein Yellow B8 dampers in our Premium Suspension kits. All Bilstein products are manufactured to the highest standards and undergo thorough development and testing, including on the Nurburgring-Nordschleife. Not only are Bilstein dampers used throughout the Motor Sport world, but are also specified on many of the world's prestige and sports cars, such as Ferrari, Porsche (GT3 and Boxster), Jaguar and Mercedes.
 
Bilstein Logo
Bilstein and Eibach Pro-Kit spring suspension kits which work exceptionally well together. Again Eibach springs are excellent quality, extensively tested and used in countless Motor Sport applications. In terms of ride quality, handling and road holding, the combination of Bilstein dampers and Eibach springs offers one of the best road car suspension packages around. In fact Vauxhall's VX220 2.2 16v and 2.0 16v turbo models left the factory fitted with Bilstein dampers and Eibach springs.

Courtenay Clubman PLUS Suspension Kits

For customers who would like an enhancement but without going to one of our Premium Kits we can offer the Clubman PLUS kit. These Clubman PLUS suspension kits use Bilstein Black Gas dampers (Kayaba can be specified on certain models if preferred) or our own sourced dampers and Eibach  or DAP Road springs. Depending on the chassis this will lower between 10 and 35mm (some Vauxhall sports chassis are already lower from the factory e.g. Astra G SRi). Available for all popular Vauxhall applications. Please ask if your car is not listed. We specify the spring kits specifically to suit each individual application to offer a good upgrade from the OE suspension.

Bilstein Dampers

In addition to suspension and spring kits, we are also able to offer the full range of Bilstein Dampers, on an individual basis from B4 Gas dampers through to B8 Sprint dampers.
B4 Gas dampers offer OE quality and are a great first step upgrade, ideal for those on a budget or as a direct replacement for OE dampers.
B6 dampers are a suitable upgrade for anyone wanting improved performance without lowering, and where a B8 is unavailable.
B8 Sprint dampers are ideal for lowered vehicles and are an ideal fast road upgrade especially when matched with a lowered spring set such as DAP Road springs. The shortened high performance damper is an ideal choice when it comes to optimising any chassis. They will offer improved road holding with good ride comfort from a lowered sports chassis.

DAP Race spec springs will require B8 dampers for road and trackday use.

Please contact us if you model is not listed or if you require any further help or advice.
