Well, I've had these Fortune Auto 510 GEN4 Coilovers on the car since last October and figured I'd share these with you.

I'll get straight to the point and say these are good coilovers (IMO) ...for being single adjustable, the amount of design features (relative to the previous generations of the 510's), how they compared to other coilovers (that could be considered in the same class) and not to forget the price!

Things I looked for going into purchasing these was...
1. daly drivability. (Not the major factor for me)
2. reliable track use.
3. be able to rebuild.
4. be able to re-valve / customize. (You can send these in and have them updated to 2-way with remote reservoir.)
5. solid build and design.
...I feel I was able to find most if not all those areas with these!

The other nice little factors were the other options you are allotted to add to the 510's
1. roller bearings, for the front springs to help eliminate the clicking and or clunking associated with turning.
2. rear camber plates.
3. swift springs.
...Which I went for all 3.

Since I've had these on I haven't been to the track (rebuilding tranny with JDM Sti gears and a refresh on the bearings and syncros. So not ready to beat on it. > Because 189,k miles < )

I have taken it up one of my local mountain passes here Southern California many times and have been grinning from ear to ear each time. The regular motorcyclists/local speed freaks that go up this pass have been impressed and sometimes surprised that they are being trailed closely buy a wagon.

I have spent a few rounds getting the alignment dialed in to the style I drive and how I like to drive/race, working with Dale at Dave's Frame and Alignment in Huntington Beach! (Great Guy, very straight up and lots of experience!)

I've become very happy with it's handling! Even found new limits to push!

So here are a few pics of them out of the box, the bits that it comes with and me putting on some new bits as well as some nerding out over them.


What's in the box?


..Stuff is in the box!


Instructions, tools, sticker, propaganda and dyno graph of the struts.


The business!


Updated mounting design! Meaty!


Roller bearings! "Smooth operator!"


Front camber plates and top roller bearings.


Front camber plate close up.


Rear camber plates!

They included the standard rear mounting plates, since I updated to the adjustable ones.


Comparing standard rear plates to the adjustable ones.

Adjustment knobs.....OFF! No for you!


Time to take apart for some Swift Spring goodness!


Size is good! (thats what she tells me!)

Put some German grease on these roller bearings!


Swift's installed!




Damn you camera phone!!!!!!!


Dyno graph of all 4 struts in one. Fortune Auto has a cool read about their suspension and or how to read suspension dyno graphs.

I'll get some pics of them on the car soon and some more feed back once on the track. So Hope this helps and sheds some insight on the FA 510 GEN4's. Thanks!!

Current area under the knife is the drive train.

I have decided to go with rebuilding and upgrading the 5 Speed driveline! Yes many of you will question me as to why I would do such a thing? "Why not do a 6 speed swap???!!"

Well... it seems very simple to me. Here are a few reasons why not.
  1. When ready to build motor - Only plan for up to 350HP & TQ
  2. Rebuilding and upgrading the drive train will be less then a 6 speed swap
  3. Would have to upgrade or buy new suspension for the larger STi 5x114 hubs
  4. After doing swap would then cost extra to get new drivetain to the relative level this current 5 speed DT will be

There are a few other logical and economical points that have played into this route. Over all though this should be plenty fun!!

On that note, here is the parts list for the drivetrain overhaul/rebuild, upgrade.
  1. JDM STi (Non-RA) 5 Speed gear set.
  2. All new syncros, Bearings and seals.
  3. New front and rear axels.
  4. Cusco Type-RS 1-way, Front LSD.
  5. Cusco Type-RS 1.5-way Rear LSD.
  6. Competition Clucth Stage 2 kit.
  7. Competition Clucth light flywheel.
  8. New clutch slave cylinder.
  9. New clutch release fork.
  10. Goodridge SS clutch line.
  11. Drive Shaft Shop - carbon fiber drive shaft.
  12. TIC 5 Speed shifter linkage.









Hehehe....I couldn't wait, the current driveshaft was in bad shape so I swapped it out already.

Where'd you get your front LSD from and what'd it cost you?!

Cool project though, wagon brother!

Rebuilt/replaced the bushings on my Whiteline rear lateral links, plus front and rear end links. These things have seen better days.

Here's just the rear end links to show how bad things where.

Out with the old!


In with the new!

Made a height adjustment to suspension. Needed the alignment rechecked and changed as well.



Added a .5˚ negative camber to the rear.

hopefully you havent installed your one way front yet.

if you havent, and if the car is going to be driven on the street follow the instructions and re-arrange the plates so that it has the least aggressive lock up. it ships with the most aggressive.

i have the most aggressive in mine and it is an absolute bear to drive on the street.

Good to know! I will take that into account! Thanks much!

What are some of the main issues you dislike with the front?

Would make sense to do the 80% plate arrangement?

Upon further research. I'll be going with 60% front and 80% rear with the L.S.D.s only since the car will be a D.D. with increasing track use.

its really hard to describe. but ill do my best

when its wet the car doesnt know what way it wants to go. espcially if you are on a slight curve on the freeway or something. it will just pull you out of line randomly.

if you have power it will torque steer like crazy. ive driven turbo hondas that dont get out of shape as bad as my wrx does in a straight line with the power on.

it follows grooves worse than an oregon trail push cart

it clunks. and i dont mean like a bad shock that just makes an annoying noise. its like a fully automatic rifle recoil that you feel it in your bones. if you have a chattery clutch this is amplified 50 fold. lets say you are at the top of a hill and you need to turn left. the combined clutch chatter and diff clunking will make you literally think the car is coming apart and spilling bits of metal all over the intersection.

kiss coasting through a turn goodbye. you can try but it will be like the brakes are applied.

the only way to make me not grit my teeth when driving the car around town is to drive it like an ******* then its semi ok. mostly because then youre the ******* who looks like hes trying to race EVERYTHING.

it really is a race car setup. you really need to pay attention to the car in a way that most are unaccustomed to doing outside a racing environment while driving on the street. its difficult but not impossible.

i wish i could give you advice as to what to do...it sounds like you got it figured out. all i can say is what i have and how i wish i adjusted it before i put it in. i had a ppg torsen before. that thing was much more well behaved

Well upon further talk and research with Cusco USA and some people I know running Cusco LSD's.

I'll be doing 60% for both front and rear LSD and only 6 of the springs instead of all 12.

So got some good seat time up the Ortega this morning. Wanted to test the new tires and alignment settings.

The temp outside during run this morning. 50

Road temps 45 - 52 Shaded areas to sunny areas

Best temps -----

out---Front Left---in
107 | 120 | 106

in---Front Right---out
106 | 125 | 113


out---Rear Left---in
105 | 112 | 113

in---Rear Right---out
106 | 108 | 100


So what does this mean??
Well this tells me (and my alignment-master-tech-guru-guy) if my current settings are working. In respects to properly using the tire along the three main regions of its contact surface. That being the outer edges and inner surface.

If the temps were all over the place, either being hot on the inner edge and warm in the middle but colder on the outer edge, that would indicate that the car is not inducing proper mechanical grip and rolling onto the tire to plant it down into and through the turn as well the car could be too low meaning the roll center is too low so the car ends up pushing out along the surface of the tire instead of down onto it, resulting in the car losing grip and spinning out or the tire screeching through the turn.

Mostly...says if the alignment is setup correctly for the environment it will be in the most. (A.K.A. a twisty, technical road course / track.)

These temps show the car is well planted.
