TEIN EnduraPro PLUS Shock Absorbers








EnduraPro PLUS are high-performance OE-shape shock absorbers.
Designed to use with the vehicle's original (OE) spring and upper strut mount and/or top spring seat. The lower spring seat is shaped identical to the OE shock absorber. In addition to replacing worn or leaking OE dampers, these products are excellent to improve specs like ride quality or handling without changing your ride height. You can also use them with TEIN lowered springs.

Please note: EnduraPro PLUS does not include the top mounting and/or top spring seat.

EnduraPro PLUS can be purchased per 1 shock absorber if required, you can limit the cost for replacing worn or damaged dampers.
* Use of EnduraPro and/or EnduraPro PLUS mixed with OE shock absorbers is not recommended. Please replace all 4 shock absorbers with EnduraPro PLUS when replacing for the very first time.



About the Sealed Structure
The top end of the shell pipe is narrowed, oil and gas are injected, and the whole unit is sealed by crimping the metal.
This new approach massively shortens the production process. As a result, we have succeeded in vastly cutting production cost.

High Strength and Durability

Fortified Installation Points

For strut-type suspensions a thickness increase improves the strength and durability of the bracket attaching to the vehicle (steering knuckle) compared to OE shock absorbers. This higher rigidity of the knuckle's support also improves steering feel and makes the ride feel more stable. Please note that the thickness increase varies per vehicle model.

Example: Thickness comparison of front strut lower clevis bracket for Honda Jazz/Fit

Fortified Shock Absorber Tube with Large Oil Capacity

The shell case, the key part of the shock absorber, is made of a high-strength material with tensile strength around 150% of the OE shell case. Weight increase is curbed by keeping the thickness of the cylinder wall the same. A bigger shell case diameter expands its oil capacity, for improved durability as well as a long-term stable damping force performance.

Example: comparison of front strut Tensile Strength (Mpa)
OE: 340 Mpa / EnduraPro Plus: 510 Mpa

Example: comparison of Shock Absorber Tube Diameter
FRONT OE: 45mm / EnduraPro Plus: 55mm
REAR OE: 45mm / EndraPro Plus: 50.8mm

Please note: tensile strength and diameter of Shell Case vary per part number.

High Performance Damper Oil

Exhibiting a stable viscosity in a broad temperature range, the high-performance damper oil sustains smooth strokes and a reliable damping force under all kinds of circumstances.

It has excellent anti-foaming properties that protect it from cavitation (bubble-forming), and is resistant to overheating, so that it works noiselessly even on rough roads. The damper oil keeps up its superior performance long-term, because it is also resistant to deterioration over time.

Rustproof Surface Treatment

The shell case's bright TEIN-green powder paint coating excels in strength and durability, while our coating technique is eco-friendly and without organic solvents. After pre-treatment, TEIN's patented 2-Layer, 1-Bake powder coating method with corrosion-proofing paint is used for superior durability and rust protection.*

Outstandingly corrosion-resistant, EnduraPro PLUS can safely be used in regions with heavy snowfall or coastal areas, etc.  * Japanese patent number 4347712







When regular shock absorbers fully stroke, their bump rubbers are compressed. The energy that is generated by that escapes as a repulsive force, which can disturb the vehicle's behavior. Furthermore, repeated full strokes can damage the damper.

In the same situation EnduraPro PLUS, featuring H.B.S., internally convert the impact of the stroke to thermal energy (heat) and absorb it, strongly reducing the impact that disturbs the vehicle's behavior. With less damage to the dampers, H.B.S. also contributes to their durability.
Driving over a bump, the vehicle jolts and bounces. It takes a while to regain control.
The vehicle smoothly processes the impact, does not bounce, and its behavior swiftly stabilizes.
In shock absorbers with inactive or no H.B.S., the operative valve (green) floats, and oil flows freely through the base valve ports. Resistance to the flow from the shim stack then, causes damping force.

Near full compression, when the piston rod strokes beyond a predetermined point, the operative valve is pushed down and activates H.B.S.: the base valve ports are narrowed, blocking the oil flow. This results in high damping force.

A relief valve serves to suppress sudden damping force increase, when the pressure in the cylinder exceeds its regular level.

The setup of the H.B.S. mechanism is optimized per vehicle model, with the right activation point and damping force.




Compared to the regular mono-tube system, twin-tube attains longer strokes with a smaller repulsive force, resulting in high ride comfort.
Roads may have all sorts of surface conditions. This calls for shock absorbers with ample stroke, that operate smoothly.
Thanks to flexible strokes, you can negotiate gaps and bumps steadily on rough roads, meaning a smooth ride at low speed and stability at high speed.


EnduraPro PLUS features 16-level damping force adjustment, for simultaneous adjustment of compression and rebound. Modify ride comfort and handling according to your preference, changing the properties of the shock absorber with the adjustment dial.
 
The above are examples; actual settings vary according to the vehicle's circumstances.


EnduraPro PLUS is compatible with the EDFC Series, which offer easy damping force adjustment from the driver's seat. * Some vehicle models are excluded as there is not enough clearance for the EDFC motors to be mounted. (eg. Under bonnet etc...)
 



 

TEIN 4x4 Damper Sport Kit






The ride height can be adjusted by moving the lower spring seat up or down. Its simple structure allows for easier handling.
Standard ride height for 4x4 DAMPER SPORT is set at 40mm (approx. 1.5 inch) higher than the original, to accommodate various driving scenes from streets to off-roading.

How the Hydraulic Bump Stopper (H.B.S.) Mechanism Works

When regular shock absorbers fully stroke, their bump rubbers are compressed. The energy that is generated by that escapes as a repulsive force, which can disturb the vehicle's behavior. Furthermore, repeated full strokes can damage the damper.

In the same situation, 4X4 DAMPER SPORT, featuring H.B.S., internally converts the impact of the stroke to thermal energy (heat) and absorb it, strongly reducing the impact that disturbs the vehicle's behavior. With less damage to the dampers, H.B.S. also contributes to their durability.

Optimal Dust Boot
Thanks to its smooth compression and high durability, the dust boot guards the piston rod from damage, and keeps foreign material out of the shock absorber.
(Some vehicles use their OE dust boots)

No-Sag Spring
Cold formed with SAE9254 steel (minimum tensile strength 200 kgf/mm2), our springs are outstandingly sag-proof and boast extreme resiliency.

Superior rust protection is ensured with a highly durable powder coating that does not peel or flake. Our high-quality springs can be used without worries, in any conditions.

High Peformance Damper Oil
Since TEIN's damper oil maintains a stable viscosity in a broad temperature range, it sustains smooth stroke and reliable damping force in a variety of circumstances.

Due to excellent anti-foaming properties, it's resistant to cavitation (bubble forming). Since it withstands high heat too, it's suitable for intense sport driving as well.

Furthermore, the damper oil keeps up its superior performance long-term, because it's resistant to deterioration over time.

TEIN-Green Powder Coating
A bright TEIN-green powder paint is used on the shock absorber's shell case. Our powder coating technique produces an extremely strong and durable barrier. No harmful organic solvents are used, for minimal pollution.

Superior durability and corrosion resistance are achieved by TEIN's patented 2-Layer, 1-Bake powder coating method, which uses 2 layers of anti-rust paint on a blasted surface.
(Japanese patent number 4347712)

Special Surface Treatment "ZT Coating"
Our unique ZT Coating surface treatment on the ride height adjustment thread is abrasion resistant against gravel/debris, and further enhances its corrosion resistance.

With zero claims for stuck parts due to rust in 500,000 shock absorbers, TEIN shock absorbers are amazingly rustproof. We're confident of customer satisfaction even in coastal areas or regions with heavy snowfall.
