    These are beautiful, please tell us more about the specs.

    Robert as always the work from your shop is exquisite, but are the shocks Alpina only, or for both Z8 and Alpina.

    What are the details, and of course cost and availaiblity.

    The dampers are for both the "regular" Z8 and the Alpina version. They are dual adjustable (compression and rebound) and are height adjustable -- valving can be changed to suit almost any preference. The complete "kit" includes titanium springs and billet front and rear monoball mounts with the front mounts having three camber adjustments.

    Looks wonderful....

    What is the coating used on the Titanium spring, and can it be ordered in other colors?

    It's a protective aerospace coating, used in titanium springs for Boeing, etc. -- made the first sets in red although the coating is available in green, white and, I believe, black.

    Cartridge front suspension mounts.

    These beautiful units are machined from billet aluminum, have monoball bushing for improved handling and feel, and are designed take the Cartridge small diameter titanium springs. They allow for three different camber adjustment settings, and use lightweight Kaynar nuts and machined titanium washers.

    NB: The top picture of the unit is shown upside down.

    Cartridge rear suspension mounts.

    These beautiful units are machined from billet aluminum, and pocketed to reduce weight. As with the fronts it is a monoball bushing for improved handling and feel, and the nuts are lightweight Kaynar with titanium washers.
