1. A coilover isn't the most complex component on a rig. It basically consists of an aluminum body, a top cap and rod end (body loops) with spherical bearings, a lower cap (shaft passes through), a shaft, a piston, shims, a spring adjuster/upper seat, a dual rate slider, and a stop ring (not shown). However, the keys to a good off-road coilover are quality and choosing the proper valving and spring rate for the desired performance.
