FORTUNE AUTO SEAL TECHNOLOGY

                      Damper seals are extremely important as they are responsible for the reliability and performance of a shock absorber. Fortune Auto utilizes the highest quality seals available for modern high performance suspension systems.

1,2,4,7,& 8. Upgraded Viton O-rings - Viton is made of a synthetic rubber compound that yeilds superior tensile strength and a wider range of operating temperatures. This new material provides a superior seal, preventing potential leaks from developing.


3. Low Drag Buna Shaft Seal -  Regarded as the most important seal in a damper. Seal drag is extremely important on a performance shock - to much drag (OEM) can contribute to a lot of delay and hysteresis. However seals with little to no drag require frequent rebuilds. Our seals strike an optimum balance between performance and reliability.

 

4. Shaft Guide Assembly - Utilizes a twin O-ring design.



5. Bronze Teflon Coated Shaft Guide - Less stiction and aids in shaft deflection.

 

6. Teflon Guide Band on IFP - The new Generation 5 Internal Floating Piston is considerably lighter and uses a low-drag teflon band that drastically reduces stiction. This allows the damper to react quicker to shock forces.

 

7 & 9. Viton Seal Ring & Plug on IFP.

 

10. Plug Screw for nitrogen refill port.
