Multimatic’s race-proven spool valve dampers are featured on select high performance production vehicles.

“(We have) the best of both worlds with Multimatic DSSV, I think it is a competitive advantage for us for sure.”

Jaclyn McQuaid
General Motors Executive Chief Engineer – Full Size Trucks

High-performance applications include:

Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE

Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE
The ZL1 1LE is a track-focused road car that has proven its worth as spiritual successor to the (also Multimatic DSSV equipped) 2014/2015 Camaro Z/28.

“The combination of ride quality and performance provided by the DSSV dampers is simply unrivaled by any other passive unit on sale today.”

Lucas Bell

Whatever their configuration, DSSV’s hardware/software approach and precisely configured spool valves offer clear-cut advantages over traditional shim dampers:

1

Highly configurable for a wide range of applications.

2

Highly repeatable and consistent damping characteristics with enhanced damper tunability.

3

Reduced development time due to great flexibility and speed in damping characteristic selection.

4

Very high resistance to cavitation in valve-in-body applications.

5

High temperature insensitivity.

6

A complete vehicle dynamics solution to support damper development.
