Protech Shocks - telescopic & coil-over

If you are seeking top quality, British manufactured shocks for your road or race car then you have found the best of British right here. Royal County Auto Supply is proud to be a verified full service dealer for ProTech shocks - stand out from the crowd. 

ProTech alloy billet, oil filled shock absorbers are entirely hand built in the UK. Set up 10 years ago, they currently supply shocks for prestige car makes such as - Lotus, Marcos, TVR, Mazda & GTM/Spyder and more, as well as grass trackers and circuit racers, so you'll be in very good company ;-)

You can have stock factory sizing or custom dimensions/performance made to suit your application - tell us what you want/need and we'll build them. All shocks are dyno tested and supplied with a readout graph - how cool is that?

Look out for them on VW drag-race cars this season at Santa Pod and Avon Parkway....more details of our sponsored racers soon. 

I believe shock absorbers to be the most overlooked component on a vehicle. So long as they're not leaking fluid, they are deemed to be OK, right? ....Wrong!  

I've just replaced my shocks (not leaking - just passed MOT) on the front of my late Beetle and cannot believe the difference it has made to the handling, ride and overall 'feel' of the front end. 

Whereas previously it was pitchy, harsh and under-steered terribly, it now handles much more smoothly than it did (it is lowered after all!!), goes where I point it and generally feels 100% more 'planted' and secure on the road. Now, whether it's going round a long sweeping bend, cutting around a roundabout or negotiating a bumpy 'B' road, it actually stays on course which instils confidence, makes driving it easier and must be safer - win/win I'd say! 


Alloy billet does polish up very nicely eh?
