HKS HIPERMAX S Coilovers for FK8 Honda Civic Type R

In the pursuit of a comfortable ride and enhanced handling performance, a newly introduced variant of HIPERMAX S is now available. This variant incorporates a pillow ball spherical bearing at the front upper mount, aiming to provide a more enjoyable driving experience.

Now available for the FK8, the HIPERMAX S is a coilover kit designed specifically for enthusiasts who enjoy street driving. The suspension stroke has been meticulously developed to prioritize comfort during street driving, providing a smooth and enjoyable ride. The threaded front side is optimized to maximize stroke volume, striking a balance between driving performance worthy of the Type R name and a comfortable ride experience. This kit is suitable for a wide range of driving scenarios and stages. To accommodate the installation of wider front wheels, camber adjustable front pillow upper mounts have been incorporated.

In 2021, the three existing MAX IV GT series have been reimagined and unified under the HIPERMAX S series. With nine years of advancement since the launch of the MAX IV GT, HKS has developed new technologies and refined various aspects including damping force characteristics, durability, and aesthetic appeal. The HIPERMAX S series encompasses the exceptional characteristics of its predecessors while elevating performance, durability, and visual aesthetics. It stands as a testament to HKS’s commitment to innovation and represents the pinnacle of suspension technology, offering the best ride experience in HKS’s esteemed suspension history.

Dual PVS

  • The existing preload valve system has been evolved into a dual preload valve system to minimize the generation of unnecessary damping force at higher piston speeds. This advancement brings about a substantial enhancement in ride comfort without compromising the overall driving performance.

Wide Range Damping Force Adjustment Mechanism

  • The improved shape of the Needle jet expands the range of damping force adjustment, allowing for enhanced control and adaptability. This advancement empowers drivers to navigate a wider array of stages with ease, providing increased flexibility to fine-tune the suspension to their specific preferences and driving conditions.

Evolution of Bump Stop Rubber

  • The introduction of a new bump stop rubber design accomplishes two objectives simultaneously: reducing body roll and achieving optimal ride comfort. This unique design surpasses the capabilities of standard hydro bump stop rubbers, providing a balance of improved stability during cornering and a comfortable ride experience.

Low Friction Technology

  • By leveraging advanced tribology technology, even higher durability and lower friction have been achieved in comparison to conventional products. This technological breakthrough significantly contributes to improved ride quality and enhanced handling performance, benefiting drivers with an elevated driving experience.

3-Year Warranty

  • With optimized internal parts and quality improvements, the HIPERMAX S Series extends its warranty period to three years, surpassing the conventional MAX IV GT series’ one-year warranty. This longer warranty duration reflects the commitment to superior durability and reliability in the product. It demonstrates the confidence in the enhanced design and quality of the HIPERMAX S Series, ensuring customer satisfaction and peace of mind.

About HKS

In 1973, two skilled engineers named Hiroyuki Hasegawa and Mr. Kitagawa embarked on a remarkable endeavor to produce high-performance engines and parts that were not readily available from major original equipment manufacturers. With the backing of Sigma Automotive Co., Ltd, they initiated their journey in a barn located near Mount Fuji, Japan, where they dedicated themselves to modifying gasoline engines. The following year, Hasegawa accomplished a groundbreaking achievement by designing the very first aftermarket turbocharger for passenger vehicles. This pioneering development established a new benchmark in the realm of aftermarket performance.

Driven by a relentless spirit of innovation, HKS continued to push boundaries and introduce groundbreaking products to the market. They introduced various notable advancements such as the first electronic turbo timer and boost controller, as well as piggy-back fuel computers and sophisticated fuel management devices. These innovations propelled HKS to the forefront of the Japanese aftermarket performance scene, solidifying their reputation as an industry leader.

The Bulletproof Automotive website contains many thousands of products purchased in multiple different currencies. All of the prices are entered manually and accurately at the time of entry. Due to the consistently fluctuating international exchange rates, at times prices may not be able to be honored at their original intended rate. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, unfortunately our website is unable to compensate dynamically for what can at times be volatile changes in the cost of items due to currency values fluctuating, changes in prices from suppliers, changes in shipping and import duties, and other factors. Rest assured that any order you place on line will be at zero risk to you in this area. If in the event your order cannot be fulfilled at the original intended website price we will offer you a 100% refund, no questions asked. We will continue to do our best to maintain updated prices and we will always continue to offer our price match guarantees as well to ensure our prices are always the best for you. In short, prices may change without notice. It is always advised to give us a call prior to placing your order online to confirm availability and to confirm current pricing.
Items that are in stock in the US, either at Bulletproof’s warehouse or at a supplier’s warehouse, are generally delivered within 7-10 days. Special order items from overseas take considerably longer. As a courtesy Bulletproof offers delivery estimates to our customers which take into consideration manufacturer availability and shipping schedule. These estimates represent our best guess based on previous orders from the manufacturer and do not in any way imply a guaranteed delivery window. Many manufacturers work in a “just in time” inventory system and often take 2-20+ weeks to produce an item once an order is submitted. All deliverable items are then sent to our Japanese warehouse. Bulletproof ships a minimum of one full ocean freight container every month from Japan, oftentimes more than one a month. Ocean freight takes an average of 4 weeks. Typically it breaks down to one week in Japan for paperwork and customs, two weeks by boat and one week in US customs/clearance. Due to the wide number of variables between manufacturer and shipping schedules, delivery estimates are simply just that – estimates. We attempt to estimate conservatively and we usually deliver faster than our estimates suggest. It is not Bulletproof’s policy to guarantee delivery time of any special order item, this is impossible for us to do. By ordering you acknowledge that there is no required delivery ETA and an order may not be canceled or altered due to manufacturing or shipping delays, all ETA’s are provided as a best guess only. Please review the full Terms & Conditions here.
We do pricing a little differently on our JDM brands and we believe in making things simple and clear. No hidden fees or surcharges. Every price you see includes the shipping cost to our office in Los Angeles, California and all the associated taxes/duties/fees for bringing the products into the US. The only shipping you ever pay is from our facility in the US to your location. Be wary of resellers that don’t include the cost of international shipping in their pricing on JDM parts. While we believe we’ll always have the lowest all-in price on JDM products, we offer a price match guarantee for all authentic parts purchased from authorized dealers as well. For many international customers, it’s much more affordable to ship from the USA than from Japan directly, as the air freight and ocean freight costs are typically much less. However, for customers looking to ship directly from Japan outside of North America, or domestically in Japan, we can provide pricing specifically for that scenario. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any pricing questions or concerns. Please email us at with any inquiries.
