However, it’s not all cut and dry with every brand. Below are some outliers to each one that we will ensure we keep updated.
BC Racing is technically made in Taiwan, but all R&D and final testing on any product is done in the US by BC Racing in Florida. The coilovers BC Racing makes overseas is different than the coilovers for the US market. The US market uses larger diameter shock bodies, spring rates are different and so are damper specs. So while they are made in the US, they’re really designed and engineered in Orlando, Florida.
Fortune Auto is assembled in the USA with parts from around the world. Technically, built in the USA.
Stance Coilovers have all of the parts made in Korea such as brackets. Seals and thrust bearings are from Japan. Any custom sets are done in house, in the US on their own shock dyno and they revalve the shocks if there are custom spring rate requests from the customer.
TEIN Coilovers have recently gone through some changes. All of their coilovers used to be built in Japan, but now only the Flex Z is. The Basis Z and Street Advance Z are now made in China. This helps them reduce cost, but still maintain the quality that TEIN is known for. By having them made in China and having a sealed rather than rebuildable damper, TEIN is able to significantly reduce cost to be able to pass the savings non to the customer.

JRZ, AST, Moton, all made in Holland.
fortune is not made in the usa, just disassembled in taiwan, shipped here than put together, shouldnt count.
Yes they are all 100% made in richmond virginia, not taiwan
Ohlins is made in Sweden, but I understand they are owned by a Taiwanese company and follow their design methods. Could anyone verify this?
Many of the Taiwanese Products are off shoots of BC racing brand. Marketing and sales people that have left and started their own brands, but basically the same product.
Question, do these companies such as raceland manufacturer their own product (have a manufacturer in china) or do they have a outside company build and then purchase to resell as raceland? Like they are purchased from alibaba (china company) or something? I can’t seem to find if they have a actual location in china?
Any update as to the pending status on the ones that have it?
