3DM Öhlins Road Sport Suspension Kits
Öhlins has been an integrated part of the Motorsport industry for over 40 years. With its headquarters in Sweden, there are over 320 employees and a test center at the most demanding track in the world, the Nurburgring. Öhlins is the choice of Professional racers from Touring Cars, 24 Hours of LeMans teams, and the new 2018 BMW M4 GT4 factory racecar.
The 3DM Motorsport "Road Sport" suspension kit is based on the Öhlins "Road and Track" lineup which provides optimal suspension performance on both the street and the track. You like stiff and reactive? Or soft and forgiving? It’s all there. The easily accessible adjuster at the base of the Öhlins units allows small, but positive increments of fine tuning, so you can take into account every single parameter. Sounds complicated? Nothing could be further from the truth. Just a few clicks either way will soon have your car responding precisely to your inputs and driving style.

3DM Motorsport BMW F8X M3/M4 Road Sport Specifications:
The 3DM Motorsport “Road Sport” kit is a slightly toned down version of the Öhlins Road and Track Kit yet still packs a punch on twisty back roads and the track. We have reduced the spring rates (Swift Brand) a touch to make commuting to work or cruising around town a little more comfortable. We also took the opportunity to use a shorter spring in the front which allows for a wider wheel fitment. Road testing, track testing, and shaker rig knowledge showed that we needed to re-valve the rear shock to match the rear spring. The front valving worked great so we left that at the “Road and Track” spec.

3DM Motorsport BMW F8X M3/M4 Road Sport RTR Specifications:
We offer this kit in an RTR (Ready to Run) setup as well. This removes the need to research and source all the pieces yourself. It also reduces the risk of getting caught mid install with an incorrect part. New mounting hardware is also included depending on the application. All ride height settings are set to Öhlins recommended starting points with spring perch jam nuts torqued. You can always request a different setting or change it yourself before install.
In most cases, basic hand tools are all that are needed to install these kits. There should be no need for complicated special tools such as a spring compressor. Every DIY mechanic operates at a different pace but with these kits you will likely cut install time in less than half over a basic kit.
If you are having your favorite shop perform the install, the RTR kits will save you labor costs as well, offsetting the extra cost of the new mounts and hardware. We recommend letting your shop know this setup comes pre-assembled so they can adjust their labor estimate accordingly.
