How Adjustable Valves Work

These valves act like tiny adjusters for your car's lever arm dampers. By controlling the flow of oil, they allow you to customize the damper's stiffness, impacting how your car handles bumps and corners.

Benefits of Adjustable Valves

  • Smoother Ride: Reduce excessive bouncing and enjoy a more comfortable ride on uneven roads.

  • Enhanced Handling: Fine-tune your car's handling for improved cornering and overall control.

  • High-End Performance: The included shim stack provides smoother stiffness adjustments, similar to what you'd find in high-performance racing dampers.

Finding Your Perfect Setting:

The valves come with a handy needle tool for easy adjustments. Simply turn the adjustment bolt to control the oil bypass:

  • Fully Left (Anti-Clockwise): Softest setting (more oil bypass)

  • Fully Right (Clockwise): Stiffest setting (less oil bypass)

  • Starting Point: Try setting the valve halfway for a balanced baseline.

Enhanced Performance with Shim Stacks

These valves boast a feature typically found in high-end racing dampers - a shim stack. This ensures a smoother transition in stiffness compared to the original fixed setup. The result? A more enjoyable driving experience for you and your Healey!
