About Firestone

The 1930’s was a momentous time for Firestone Industrial Products and more specifically 1938 because that is when they patented their first pneumatic expansion device or air spring and thus began the road to a more comfortable ride. The development and improvement of the air spring progressed through the years through Firestone’s ingenuity and dedication. Not one to rest on their laurels, in the 1970’s Firestone began manufacturing heavy duty truck cab and seat springs, and then to reduce the overall weight of a vehicle they developed the very first plastic pistons.

And of course, always with an eye toward the future, Firestone was the pioneer for the injection molded piston in the 1990’s and they also introduced the Coil-Rite Air Helper Springs into their product line. But Firestone was not done yet and in the 2000”s they popularized the air dampening technology with the introduction of the impressive fully integrated intelligent air spring sensor.

Firestone joined the aftermarket arena in the 1980’s with the purchase of Ride-Rite resulting in the expansion of its air spring line of products to include products like the Ride-Rite kits for Light Trucks, Motor Homes, RVs, SUVs and Vans. These popular air helper springs can be easily installed on these vehicles and are designed for safe load-carrying capacity, stability, ride quality and effective braking and air pressure can be adjusted for different load capacities providing optimum load support.

And, of course, Firestone knows you want a smoother ride on your coil spring suspension vehicles, so they provided you with the Firestone Coil Rite Air Helper Springs. And best of all they are designed to fit inside your existing coil springs creating a variable spring rate. No more problems with leveling your vehicle and improvement in braking and handling when you install the Air Helper Springs.

As you can see, Firestone and LMPerformance are here to help you get a smoother ride whatever you drive.

These are some of the items you can find at LMPerformance for your Acura

If you are adding a body kit to your Acura CL Integra, NSX, RSX, TL OR TSX for aesthetic reasons only then you have a varied range of materials to choose from but if you are doing it to improve performance then aerodynamics is one of the most important deciding factors. Late Model Performance offers you body kits specific to your Acura CL, Integra, NSX, RSX, LT or TSX. The DURAFLEX brand by the transcendent manufacturer Extreme Dimensions took the fiberglass market by storm with the DURAFLEX aerodynamics by a marriage of fiberglass, plastic, and flex resins to obtain sui generis features allowing DURAFLEX aero parts a much higher durability rate than the average fiberglass product and the primer finish helps you get that paint job done faster and with outstanding results. We also can supply you with the DURAFLEX Bumper (Front), Bumper (Rear) and Side Skirts if you do not need a full body kit at this time.

Upgrading your shocks imparts a miscellany of advantages, ranging from better vehicle stability, to improved control, and in some cases, a smoother ride and a working set of shocks propitiously lessens the wear on your suspension, wheels and tires. The shocks on your Acura are formulated for improved drivability, control, and vehicle stability, but these conditions are terrain-dependent. KONI, the preeminent manufacturer of performance shocks in the world knows this and as a result developed a potpourri of shocks to meet your needs whether it be everyday driving or in situations requiring greater impact dampening - such as racing or off road driving. There are three choices for your Acura: the Street Orange Shock is totally new and is individually tailored and engineered to give your car that KONI sports feel with improved handling and less roll; the Sport Yellow Shock serves Sporting Drivers focusing on road holding and handling, h a reasonable level of driving comfort and usable with spring kits to lower a vehicle up to 35mm; and the FSD Gold shock absorbers; a smart suspension system adjusting automatically to road conditions as well as driving style. Learn which KONI shock is ideal for your model Acura and driving style by using the drop down lists on our web site.

A slipping, sticking or stiff clutch in your Acura or a slipping in your drag vehicle may mean it is time for a change to a Performance Clutch by the inimitable SPEC. Their street high performance and racing clutches and flywheels are manufactured in multitudinous Clutch Kits, from street kit Stage 1,2,2+, 3, and 3+ to Race Kits Stage 4 and 5 and the SPEC Super Twin with TQ ratings of over 1500 FT TQ! The Stage 1 is primo for Street, Drag, Drift, Road Race, Rally, Pulling, Autocross; the Stage 2, 2+, 3, 3+, 4 and 5 can be used for Street, Drag, Pulling, and Autocross; the Super Twin is beneficial in all types of driving; and the Mini Twin is serviceable in limited street, drag, drift, road racing, time attack, pulling and rally driving. Since performance clutches typically involve heavier springs and different disc materials they result in a clutch with more clamping force, meaning more torque can be transmitted without the clutch slipping, and the clutch will be much more likely to grab under aggressive shifting or clutch dumping - perfect for racing and off-road. Because SPEC billet flywheels are manufactured to .001 machine tolerance that, guaranteeing a flat seating surface for the clutch and smooth rotational qualities for perfect balance and extended engine life and they are constructed from only the highest quality steel and aluminum. Quicker revs, more horsepower and increased engine reliability are a result of installing stock appearing aluminum pressure plates. With the SPEC Super Clamp pressure plate, you can expect a 50-60% increase in clamp load above and beyond the increase offered by the standard high clamp pressure plate

Each INVIDIA Stainless Exhaust is constructed with high quality SUS304 Stainless Steel, CNC-machined flanges, and manufactured with a polished finish.
