  • 2010 Agility S-Series COILOVERS! Now accepting partial sponsorship applications!

    Hello everyone! My name is Dan and I am from The Agility Corporation, a performance suspension company based in Irvine, CA. I would like to thank all of you for the very friendly welcome to your community. I am here with some exciting news! We have just finished up our development of the Saturn S-Series Tuner Series coilover suspension kit. These are scheduled for sale at the end of January 2008.

    Now for some PICTURES!













    Here are some features of our coilover sets, taken from our site at http://www.agilityco.com:

    * Forged 6061 aluminum upper mount.
    * Front and rear pillowball upper mounts come standard!
    * Each shock absorber is outfitted with a rigid 42mm internal steel piston and resin piston ring through a high performance monotube damper.
    * Adjustable through 32 levels for maximum adjustability for track/street conditions.
    * Separate lower bracket height adjustability prevents the need to adjust the spring perch, allowing for maximum suspension travel.
    * Springs are cold bent using silicon chrome steel with a tensile strength of 2000N/mm.
    * Custom valved setups with custom spring rates are available upon request.
    * High quality T6061 aluminium alloy used for all adjustment locks
    * The shock body is specifically anodized to prevent inner corrosion and surface oxidation.
    * 1 year warranty against manufacturer defects and failure.


    As you can see from our pictures, we have a unique one-piece lower housing design which is multiangular in appearance.

    The MSRP for these is set at $1395, but we will introduce these initially for a limited time for $1095 shipped!

    Why trust a new company like us?


    1) For starters, we are ISO:9001 certified. Our production process and quality control are unparalleled. We strictly adhere to the ISO:9001 rules and regulations, ensuring that our customers are receiving a top-tier quality product.

    2) No prebuy, groupbuy or deposits required! You will not have to take a leap of faith with us. We will not accept payment on anything unless we can ship it within a reasonable time frame. We will guarantee that upon payment, your item will be shipped, and you will receive a FedEx tracking number from us within 7 business days, or your money will be refunded should you choose, no questions asked.

    3) Our suspension sets are dyno-matched using Roehrig dynamometers, the industry standard! We guarantee dyno-matching between matched pairs (F/F, R/R) to be within an 8% threshold! We will provide dyno data to support our claims. Compared to our industry, the lowest we have seen is from one leading company, who aims for a 10% threshold on their rebuilds! This ensures that quality damper control can easily be attained from our product. Predictability is a racer's best friend! The extreme tolerances which our products adhere to make it very easy to finetune the damper settings through the 32 clicks.


    For any questions, please email us at [email protected]. Our contact information can also be found at www.agilityco.com. We aim to be as helpful as possible, so if you have ANY questions or concerns, please contact us!

    We would also like to introduce Jerred Weingarten (Cloud8191 as our first sponsored driver of the 2008 season! Jerred will be using the Agility Tuner Series coilovers on his 2001 Saturn SC2 coupe. We wish him well on his championship quest this year!



    update - 12/31/2007


    Hi Sixthsphere,

    Thanks to everyone for all of your emails and your interest in our product! We are just as excited as all of you to be releasing our product to your community. We would like to thank ProjectSW1 for allowing us to post about our product here as well.

    I have updated the first post in the thread with additional product and company information so that people will not have to sift through the thread to find information on our product. Also I will reiterate the update here as well.

    Some questions you may be wondering about!

    1) Why 32 clicks?

    There are 2 schools of thought on this regarding an adjustable damper. Some companies prefer having fewer clicks because it is easier to feel the transition in damping between each click for the driver. We chose to have 32 clicks because we feel it allows us to have a similar finite range of damping adjustability, but also allows more intricate fine-tuning of the damping by the driver.




    As you can see by the force vs. absolute velocity plot, our setups are fairly consistent between each adjustment range. For those of you familiar with coilover setups, often quality control issues preclude equal adjustments between clicks of the knob. In other words, 32 clicks may only be 10 clicks of damping adjustment in actuality, with the remaining clicks having little to no effect on the damping quality. Our supreme quality control (ISO 9001 certified!) allows us to produce products that deliver consistent results.


    2) Why is your product so cheap? Is it any good?

    On the contrary, we do not feel our product is "cheap" or inexpensively priced. Compared to other similar offerings on the market, we feel that we are indeed fairly priced. Compare our product pricing with other similar offerings from established companies such as Tein, Megan, F2, D2, Cusco, GC/Koni, Stance, Ksport, JIC Magic, KW Variant, etc. for the Honda and Nissan markets and you will see that we have priced our product in an appropriate niche, around the middle of the pack. We feel that this setup is a great option for the daily driver or the racer looking for that extra edge at the track, and especially with our quality control, our product value can't be beat!

    3) You are a new company. Why should we trust you?

    Great question! We are attempting to be as transparent as possible with our product. By providing shock dyno data, our 7-business day shipping guarantee after payment is received, and not requiring any payment until product is ready to ship, we feel that we have minimized the risk to the buyer to a very low level. We use Google Checkout, so link it to your credit card, and you are instantly protected! We are also a registered corporation in the State of California! We do not just call ourselves "The Agility Corporation" for fun; we are a serious business entity. From our ISO:9001 policies to our company policies, we intend to show the world that we are very serious about what we do.

    Additionally, we have already sponsored our first race driver for the 2008 season, Jerred Weingarten! We located Jerred on Saturnfans based on his good knowledge of the Saturn platform, and his impressive autocross record, as well as his involvement in the community as a whole. Jerred is currently holding the Novice Director position for the Rio Grande Region SCCA chapter, and has been chosen to start the RGRSCCA's Rallycross program as well. In 2005, he took the Rio Grande Region SCCA Novice of the year title. In 2006 he placed second in the region's divisional, while also finishing second in points for STS 2006. Jerred is a driver whose resume is growing, and we really are excited about having the opportunity to grow with him as well.

    So if you look at our track record to date, while we might be new and very small, we have really stepped up with an honest effort to prove ourselves to your community by fully sponsoring one of your own with our product, as well as putting in safeguards to protect you, the consumer. But keep an eye on us in 2008-2009, because we have some BIG things planned for the racing community!

    4) Why don't you answer our questions promptly?

    Email us at [email protected]! This is the fastest and most accurate way to get a response to any questions or concerns that you might have. Our philosophy on forum threads is that they are for discussion among community members, as well as to bounce ideas and questions off of one another. Email provides the simplest and most direct line to the source, The Agility Corporation! We thank you for all of your emails, and we encourage you to keep the questions coming!

    5) Do you do custom setups?

    ABSOLUTELY! We will post an addendum to this later this week, detailing our process about how this is done.

    6) What is your warranty?

    Our 1 year warranty is distinctly outlined on our website, and a copy will also be included in your order! It is a simple, straightforward warranty which we apply to ALL of our customers. We believe that by doing so, any confusion can be avoided altogether if warranty service is required. In addition, should your setup require a rebuild after the warranty period expired, we do provide a rebuild service at a very reasonable price.

    7) How long will the intro price last?

    Right now, it is tentatively 2-3 weeks once they are for sale!

    Happy New Year to you guys! We look forward to unleashing our product to your esteemed community! Keep checking the first post and our site at http://www.agilityco.com for updated information and remember to email us at [email protected] with all of your suspension questions!

    I'd really like a set made for drag racing.

    If I can get a couple of heads to cut, I'll put the money toward a set.

        These look nice and beefy and that intro-price is nice. Hmm very tempting, Very tempting.

        Has anyone used these yet... Interested in feedback.
        I paid Nefarious $700 for a turbo setup and all I got was this lousy headache.

                        The Saturn S-series coilovers will be available soon. We had a couple of delays on our end, but right now we are on schedule to have them in our warehouse on the 10th of March, and for sale soon after that. We will post more information soon. If you check our thread in the "Suspension" forum, you will see our latest update, along with a picture of the final version. $1095 shipped is the intro price. Thanks for your patience and your interest in our products! We are sorry for the long wait, but they should soon be available for purchase.

Our business is based on honesty, integrity, and trust. We believe that our customers should know exactly what they will be receiving when they order from us. All of our product information can be found on the first page of this thread, and if you have any questions, doubts, concerns, etc., feel free to contact us at [email protected].
