1 review for Plug-n-Play High-Performance Shocks for Air Suspension for Tesla Model S (2012-2019.5)

    These shocks are EXCELLENT. They totally transform the 1st gen Model S. My P90D felt very unbalanced and floaty on my factory struts, these shocks made it feel like a BMW M5…a totally different and improved driving experience.

    I set these to 50% (2 turns out of 4 on the dampening key), and that was perfect for me. That’s probably as stiff as you’d want to go on a street car if you’re going to be driving your wife around….higher might get you some complaints.

    Give yourself a full day to install if you’re doing it yourself. If you have a 2016.5-2020, there are a couple of install steps that are slightly different than the guide they provide, but there’s a thread on Tesla Motor Club that covers it.

GENERAL INFORMATION
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Unplugged Performance Plug-n-Play High-Performance Shocks For Air Suspension has been developed as a racetrack-derived, street-compliant suspension upgrade for all Tesla Model S variants with Air Suspension. The higher-spec Tesla Model S variants (P85D, P90D, P100D, etc. PRIOR TO RAVEN 2019.5) come equipped standard with Tesla’s advanced air suspension. While the factory suspension has many great features such as height adjustment and GPS memory, it has limitations for handling that are typical of factory-equipped air suspension systems. Although comfortable on the street, the factory suspension does not provide the handling, grip, and stability preferred by driving enthusiasts for spirited driving due to the inherently soft factory settings designed to please the average Tesla owner. This limitation prevents the Model S from reaching its full potential as an ultra-high-performance sports sedan. Engineered for driving enthusiasts, this performance upgrade overcomes the natural propensity of air suspension vehicles for slop and roll during spirited driving and reduces crash over bumps, without compromising daily drivability. Once installed, the upgrade works in harmony with the standard air suspension controls without error or change of all standard functionality.

Notes on lowered cars: Many Model S owners have utilized Unplugged Performance lowering brackets to reduce ride height, improve aerodynamic efficiency, and reduce body roll. When the Model S is lowered, the factory suspension remains unchanged, equally soft as standard, however typically lowered car owners will want a slightly more sporty setting to maximize performance. As a result, when paired with a lowered car this system will maximize handling performance.

INTEGRATION

The system has been developed over the course of 18 months to plug-n-play on all variants of Model S air suspension. After installation the car simply works as normal, requiring no additional calibration and introducing no vehicle errors. All of the factory air suspension functionality (height adjustment, GPS memory) remains unaffected.

CUSTOMIZATION

The front and the rear units all employ user-adjustable valving which may be tuned to each owner’s specific driving preference. All sets arrive pre-adjusted to Unplugged Performance’s recommended setting (high-performance street spec), however, they may be adjusted more firm for pure racing or softer for comfort comparable to the factory units they replace. As a result of the specific valving and adjustability, these high-performance shocks are equally suited for daily driving as they are for motorsports use.

COMPATIBILITY

This product is compatible with every version of the Model S factory air suspension. It may be used on factory height cars or on cars that have been lowered. For maximum performance, we suggest pairing with Unplugged Performance lowering brackets. We also suggest considering our ultra-light wheel packages and our specials on Michelin Pilot Sport 4S and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.

*This product is compatible with Dual Motors Cars. For use with Rear Motor cars the following Tesla product will need to be purchased for installation. 2 of these air spring assemblies will need to be purchased. PN: 1030608-00-C*

What our customers say
You can see my photos on the site under Steve Guevara to see the detailed work that went into the front fascia unit. I said before that my skeptical wife told me to pick out the car that I wanted, so I liked the TM3 the best as my kids are away at college and now it is my turn to be spoiled. I also...
You can see my photos under Steve Guevara. Wow, what to say about this spoiler. There are so many incredible things added to my SMG3 that since I have brought it home less than a week ago, I have had more that fifty conversations from strangers that absolutely have to have this spoiler. It...
Psychologists say that the more you pay for something, the more you like it. Maybe that’s what’s happening here, but the front fenders are now my most cherished upgrade. I love that I can unlock up to a 315mm square setup with a track camber and 305-295mm with a daily camber. I’ll never be...
These Rear brakes was a big help with our S Plaid drag racing car.Feels great and paired with the Front (BBK) & Upgraded to Racing brake fluid with the stainless steel lines. Thanks
I was not going to get these, as I do not track my car. I love the any chance to control as much about my car as possible. Just one more way to stand out from the crowd. And, I can get my tires to last a reasonable amount of miles.
After using the fascia for over two years, this feels like a must-have Tesla upgrade. The stock Model 3 just doesn’t look the same anymore. I would recommend epoxy over double-sided tape to secure the ultrasonic sensors for a longer-lasting, flush fitment.
Love these 6-points Harness in our S Plaid drag race car. Looks so amazing in the car with the UP carbon fiber seats..👌🏾
I’ve worked on cars and pushed them close to their mechanical limits all my life. This Model S Plaid definitely needs a brake upgrade if you tend to push your car harder than the average driver lol. The BBK install was pretty straight forward. You can use the instructions provided or with no...
Product is top notch when I installed them it was like switching from a 1 piston sliding caliper to a bbk. Also cold performance and noise are really good

Exactly what I wanted. Much better appearance. Beautiful stance. Both stiffer in the corners and smoother on the regular road imperfections. Feels more tuned and prepared. Will recommend to all my Tesla owning friends.
For my 2018 Model 3P I got the mild springs. Amazing! The ride feel is even better than I was hoping for. The car is my daily driver and the harshness of the stock springs with the 20" rims made me consider switching to 19". Instead I figured I try UP's dual rate springs first since it seemed to...
Same as the fascia, this feels like a must-have Tesla upgrade. The stock Model 3 just doesn’t look the same anymore. I love the dry carbon material and would highly recommend. I wish the diffuser fins came standard, even with a higher cost. With some DIY, you can make the air ducts in the bumper...
An absolute MUST when thinking about your first upgrade. The Model Y, even in it's Performance Model, has more body roll than you'd like. It was one of my biggest complaints when driving the first few months. After installation, body roll was greatly reduced. Cornering on-ramps and turns with a...
After using the fascia for over two years, this feels like a must-have Tesla upgrade. The stock Model 3 just doesn’t look the same anymore. I rate 4/5 stars since epoxy would be better than double-sided tape to secure the ultrasonic sensors.
You can see my photos under Steve Guevara. WHEELS, what to say about this indescribable addition. There are so many incredible things added to my SMG3, but this wheel set altered the car drastically. The RIDE is much improved with the grip around tight corners like Topanga Canyon with the other four...
We got these (BBK) installed on our S Plaid was the best think we could have upgraded first. They feel so great when stopping on the big end on the tracks, So much light weight as well from the factory stock brakes. Thanks
Unplugged Performance UP Emblem You can see my photos under Steve Guevara. The UP Emblem, just another seemingly innocuous item that KIRK added to make the car pop when driving behind it. The sun shines on the titanium and it screams at you and then goes back into its subtle way. To say that I love...
These carbon fiber seats are amazing in our plaid drag car. Looks like it came from Tesla just like that. 🔥🔥🔥 Thanks
UP Pikes Peak Race Team Soft Shell Jacket by North Face You can see my photos under Steve Guevara. The UP Jacket I first noticed on the Pikes Peak video on the set in the shop and I asked KIRK, “Do you have some of those”? He pulled two Medium beauties from the vault and added a couple of...
The ascension front fascia makes my model 3 look so much sportier and aggressive. I’ve had it on my car for over a year now and I love it. The car looks way better than stock. This is how the car should look coming out of the factory.
