H&R Now Available

13 Aug

The H&R philosophy is simple and effective: To manufacture the best suspension products, using only the highest grade materials, and then back all of our products with unparalleled customer service. This philosophy has made H&R what it is today – the industry leader in high performance, quality suspension components. Be it on the street or on the track, H&R has become synonymous with consistent, proven suspension performance.

In the late 1970’s, Mr. H and Mr. R saw the need for improved suspension on the street. Each having years of professional and personal automotive experience, they came together with the shared belief that with improved suspension vehicles would have more control and better handling. Werner Heine and Heinz Remmen combined their years of driving experience and suspension expertise to design, manufacture, and produce high quality springs—creating a whole new look in the automotive world with a ‘correct’ vehicle stance. Their commitment to doing it right and producing a quality product allowed them to obtain TÜV certification and the European performance spring market was born. Their commitment to doing it right continues today. From the beginning, Mr. Heine and Mr. Remmen have been leaders and innovators with great influence on the aftermarket suspension industry.

Over the years, H&R has developed a diverse line of products and suspension applications for the street. H&R now produces four different spring product lines, six different coil over product lines, two different Cup Kit product lines, a sway bar program, the largest wheel spacer and adapter program in the industry, along with camber adjustment bolts, our lightweight line of I.D. Race Springs, and the ever popular Quick-Safe Wheel Bolt Stud conversions. Every suspension application is designed to be vehicle specific and all of our products are manufactured and produced to enhance handling potential, personal style, and retain vehicle ride comfort.

All H&R products are 100% made in Germany and exceed ISO quality assurance standards. H&R has an established heritage of industry respect and customer confidence due to the quality of our products, the definitive edge we give our customers’ vehicles, and the additional benefit of knowing H&R works right out of the box.

New Billet/Urethane Engine and Transmission Mount for 370Z/G37

13 Aug

These billet mounts replace the factory rubber mounts, with an all aluminum casing, and a durable 75a urethane insert. The net result is less engine movement, which translates into quicker engine response. Sold as a pair. Team it with their transmission mount for a full drivetrain mounting solution!

Drop Engineering 2009+ Nissan 370Z Transmission Mounts are assembled from 6061 aluminum and 304 stainless steel. The transmission mounts also come equipped with rigid polyurethane bushings that have a durometer of 75, to more efficiently transfer your vehicle’s power to the wheels.

When you accelerate, there is a noticeable lag created with OEM transmission mounts due to movement of the motor. Vehicles outfitted with a Drop Engineering 370Z Transmission Mount will see quicker engine response and more precise shifting even at a higher rpm. Where the factory shifter, as good as it is for a factory car, has some sloppiness, this mount will eliminate it, and give a much more positive response. A Drop Engineering 370Z Transmission Mount kit is an ideal upgrade for any driver looking for improved performance, but is also highly recommended when installing a new motor as a replacement for worn out factory mounts.

To order, give us a call at (631)863-3820, or email at z1sales@z1auto.com. Special deals offered for the first few buyers on this new product!
