New RS style front strut to suit all RS/Mexico Escorts and Capris excluding 3.0 V6. Strut is fitted with Gaz top adjustable damper. Note that the top of the damper fits through a top mount with 5/8" hole so early Escorts & Capris may need replacement top mounts to fit (early models usually have a 1/2" bore top mount). Spring supplied at extra cost. (uses 2.5" spring).
Gaz Gold height Adjustable units are a premium range of suspension units designed for tarmac motorsport and the serious track day enthusiast. The features are:
  • Front and rear units adjust bump and rebound from a single control knob on the side of the unit
  • Struts and semi struts have 62mm bodies for increased oil capacity. These units are fitted with 22mm diameter induction hardened piston rods that are hard chrome plated for strength and durability
  • All units have multi-lip sealing. The outer seal is a metal encased wiper to clean the piston rod. This in turn extends main seal performance and oil retention under extreme conditions
  • All the Gold range are fitted with a gas cell in the outer reservoir and filled with a high viscosity index multi grade oil to prevent cavitation and reduce fade in motor racing conditions
  • The coilovers and telescopic units in this range utilise lightweight billet alloy components where possible, i.e. bases, end fittings, seats, lockrings, rod guides and gland nuts. The outer tube is steel with a nickel coating to provide the best anti-corrosive finish possible. All outer alloy components are anodised
  • All units use a larger 2.5" spring.
A full range of springs are stocked at the Gaz factory for road and motorsport use.

All Gaz units feature black Zinc plated bodies giving over 300 hours salt spray protection, double lip oil seals and 36 point external damper rate adjustment. Each unit is fully rebuildable and they are supplied with a 2 year warranty and an individual dyno read out.
