MR2 DAMPERS FROM GAZ

The Toyota MR2 is already a great handling sportscar and was a popular base for many kitcar conversions with its transverse-mounted mid-engine and front and rear MacPherson strut suspension. However, it’s quite easy to improve things even further with a GAZ GHA suspension kit.

The Gaz units are both height and damper rate adjustable. Ride height is adjustable through 80mm of adjustment.

The height adjusters have a coarse acme form thread for ease of adjustment and the damper units are black zinc plated to ensure that they remain in good order even after considerable service.

Damper rates are variable through 22 different settings More >
