Cygnus Performance X-1 Digressive Monotube Coilovers
Quality results for less.

Generation 3 Update New for 2019!
Cygnus Performance X-1 Coilovers are now in their ninth year of production. We upgraded suppliers which means components like pillow balls, lower mounts, spring perches and locking collars are even high quality and will last even longer. No other option in this price range will go longer between rebuilds. We have further revised the shim stack for an even more refined ride without sacrificing performance. Both the upper and lower spring perches along with the lower mount locking collars have been redesigned (they are now much more resistant to stripping and the lower perch is self locking without additional cost), the default springs are now made in the USA, Hyperco springs are now available as an upgrade (which we found to be slightly more accurate than Swift although Swift is still available). This latest version benefits both from years of our own R&D as well as feedback from thousands of happy customers. These coilovers have more Subaru specific R&D than anything else in their price range and less middle men. No other coilover set will get you better results for the money!

For years Cygnus Performance has been a leader in Subaru suspension parts. We have been a dealer of almost every major coilover brand for a long time, and we have sold thousands of sets of coilovers and replacement shocks. We have also tested and run numerous coilover setups on our own shop cars. This along with feedback from customers over the years has given us an understanding of what works and what people want when it comes to coilovers.

Until now there have really been two main options if you wanted to upgrade to coilovers. You could buy a lower priced set up ($950-$1500) which would get the job done when it came to tightening up handling and giving you proper ride height adjustability, but it would generally offer very little in the way of valving refinement or ride quality. Another downside to most of the coilover sets in this price range is they come with pillowball top mounts which tend to make some noise. So bascially you could get the job done for this kind of money, but the results would be less than ideal for people who wanted a somewhat quiet, comfortable daily driver. Another thing that is important to note is that very few of these coilover options can be rebuilt or revalved in the USA which means either replacing them or sending them overseas if you have a problem with them.

The second option is buying a more expensive set of European designed coilovers which typically start at $2100 and can cost over $10,000 if you get something very high-end. These are a great option if money is no object. They are something we regularly sell and recommend, but they aren't for everybody. The obvious drawback is cost. With topmounts you really can't find anything for less than $2600 in this category that is worth buying. This is a lot of money to spend on a single mod for most people. Performance wise you might be better using a portion of this money for bushings, bracing, swaybars, stage 2 etc. The other potential downsides are lead time and lack of US based support. Many of these options are rarely readily available and may not be rebuildable or revalvable in the USA.

Knowing all of this we saw a gap in the market and decided to develop our Cygnus Performance X-1 Coilovers. We partnered with Fortune Auto to develop these coilovers. We chose to work with them because they are really the only coilover manufacturer with proper support in the USA who could also produce a set of shocks at the price point we wanted. They also had a lot of experience working with monotube digressive shocks which is the technology we wanted our coilovers to use. Our basic goal here was to offer coilovers that used the latest and greatest technology, had a valving profile similar to the highend European models we sell for thousands more and also to allow customers to use hardened rubber upper mounts to make our coilovers a good fit for daily driven Subarus. The result is a $1350 coilover set that gives you very similar results to coilovers twice their price.

Cygnus Performance X-1 Coilovers Feature:
  • Monotube construction for superior performance, durability and a wider range of damping adjustment
  • CNC'd pistons for maximum digression and consistant results everytime
  • Exceptionally high qaulity Swedish sourced shims typically only found on shocks costing twice as much
  • Digressive valving which allows the shock to both ride and perform better than traditional linear valving
  • Independent ride height control which does not affect pre-load or travel
  • 2 different top hat options unique to these coilovers, both of which offer increased negative camber and Koyo Japan radial bearings
  • 100% rebuildable and revalvable in the USA quickly and for a reasonable cost
  • Valving that has been specifically developed for these applications and the spring rates we offer. This is critical for both performance and ride quality.
  • Hand built in the USA
  • All shocks are individually dynoed to ensure consistency and performance
  • 100% synthetic oil used in all shocks for durability and longevity
  • An unrivaled 5 year warranty on most components
  • Industry leading tech support both before and after the sale.

No other coilover set will bring together this list of features at this price point. We firmly believe these are the best value on the market when it comes to coilovers and by far the best option in their price range.

Top Mounts
For street driven cars we highly recommend the optional Whiteline Com-C offset hardened rubber top mounts. These will last for many years without making noise or causing issues. They are a fixed mount, but they offer increased negative camber which can be fine-tuned using the OEM eccentric bolts. By default we offer these coilovers with camber plates. With this option we include a set of Koyo Japan radial bearings which reduce spring bind and noise. These are a great option for people who want less strut movement and more camber adjustability. It is important to understand that these camber plates are a motorsports part and like all pillowball top mounts, they have the potential to make some noise. This is why we developed the unique option of using the Whiteline Com-Cs for street driven cars.

Spring Rates*
We have carefully selected our standard spring rates for your particular chassis to provide excellent handling at auto-x and the track while maintaining good ride quality on the street. The default (standard) rates are 8k front 8k rear for 08-19+ WRX's & STi's, 7k front 6k rear for 02-07 WRX's & STi's and 8k front 9k rear for the BRZ/FR-S. If you mainly drive your car on the street and wish to prioritize comfort over handling we offer our comfort rates. Our comfort rates still provides night and day better handling than the stock suspension while maintaining an exceptionally smooth ride. We recommend adding the Com-C option if you choose our comfort rates. Our comfort rates are 7k front 6k rear for 08-19+ WRX's & STi's, 6k front 5k rear for 02-07 WRX's & STi's and 7k front 7k rear for the BRZ/FR-S. If you would like different rates for your specific needs (stiffer for more track use, softer for more comfort, a different split for auto-x rotation etc) our valving offers a wide enough range of adjustment to accommodate most people's needs. If you have questions about springs rates please feel free to ask us. We are able to provide the custom rates of your choice for no additional charge as long as they will work with our valving.

*Hyperco springs are not metric. They will come in closest imperial rate.

Long Travel Option
This option will change your ride height range from the standard 0.75" minimum to 2" maximum drop to being able to run just slightly higher than stock at max height to a 1" drop at minimum height. This option is popular with customers who want additional snow clearance. An added benefit of this option is longer stroke shocks. The only downside is not being able to lower the car as aggressively.

Swift and Hyperco Upgrades
Our default springs are made in the USA. They are high quality and get the job done. We do offer 2 other brands of springs as optional upgrades. Hyperco and Swift springs are regarded as some of the highest quality most accurate springs in the world. The main thing you are paying for with this upgrade is accuracy. An 8k spring will be very close to exactly 8k. These springs are also very linear meaning that they do not deviate much from their intended rate throughout the entire range of compression. They are also lighter, have bigger distances between coils and use a very high grade spring steel. From the driver's seat this basically means that you will get both better ride quality and better performance. The default springs are still good quality, so this is not a must have upgrade. It does give you noticeably better results though. This upgrade can be added later, but this requires disassembling the coilovers.

Roll Center Adjustment Kit
If you plan on dropping your car an inch or more we highly recommend adding the optional Super Pro Roll Center Adjustment Kit.
