TEIN EnduraPro Damper Kit Product Specifications
A “sealed structure”, attained by a new production formula,
combines high quality with reduced cost.
About the Sealed Structure
The top end of the shell pipe is narrowed, oil and gas are injected, and the whole unit is sealed by crimping the metal.
This new approach massively shortens the production process. As a result, we have succeeded in vastly cutting production cost.

How the H.B.S. Mechanism Works
When regular shock absorbers fully stroke, their bump rubbers are compressed. The energy that is generated by that escapes as a repulsive force, which can disturb the vehicle’s behavior. Furthermore, repeated full strokes can damage the damper.
In the same situation EnduraPro and EnduraPro PLUS, featuring H.B.S., internally convert the impact of the stroke to thermal energy (heat) and absorb it, strongly reducing the impact that disturbs the vehicle’s behavior. With less damage to the dampers, H.B.S. also contributes to their durability.
Driving over a bump, the vehicle jolts and bounces. It takes a while to regain control.
The vehicle smoothly processes the impact, does not bounce, and its behavior swiftly stabilizes.
The Hydraulic Bump Stopper (H.B.S.) Mechanism
In shock absorbers with inactive or no H.B.S., the operative valve (green) floats, and oil flows freely through the base valve ports. Resistance to the flow from the shim stack then, causes damping force.
Near full compression, when the piston rod strokes beyond a predetermined point, the operative valve is pushed down and activates H.B.S.: the base valve ports are narrowed, blocking the oil flow. This results in high damping force.
A relief valve serves to suppress sudden damping force increase, when the pressure in the cylinder exceeds its regular level.
The setup of the H.B.S. mechanism is optimized per vehicle model, with the right activation point and damping force.
Compared to the regular mono-tube system, twin-tube attains longer strokes with a smaller repulsive force, resulting in high ride comfort.
Roads may have all sorts of surface conditions. This calls for shock absorbers with ample stroke, that operate smoothly.
Thanks to flexible strokes, you can negotiate gaps and bumps steadily on rough roads, meaning a smooth ride at low speed and stability at high speed.
