For the last few years, MPP has heard one consistent comment from Model Y owners - they want a more compliant ride, and you want it for less cost than our double-adjustable kit! MPP has heard you, and is happy to be releasing a coilover lowering kit that is aimed at offering the best comfort possible along with incredible value. MPP Comfort Coilovers for the Model Y were tested back to back with their Comfort Adjustable suspension kit and are significantly more supple than the Comfort Adjustable kit.
Spring rates set for comfortable driving, very similar to factory spring rates.
Damper valving focused on comfort, a composed, solid ride without excessive harshness while still feeling planted and composed.
Height adjustable from factory ride height down to 50mm below stock.
Progressive bump rubbers tuned to engage only in the most aggressive bumps to not add to ride harshness under normal conditions.
Utilize the OEM upper hats for minimum NVH transmitted into the cabin. No spherical bearings to clunk and transmit road noise!
Bolt-in installation. A competent shop can have these coilovers installed in 3.5 hours.
Composite spring perch that will not seize to damper body over time as many aluminum products tend to.
Which Kit Should I Choose? If you enjoy spirited driving or driving your Model Y like it’s a sports sedan, then the Comfort Adjustable kit is certainly the kit for you. We developed that kit with comfort in mind, but with the adjustable damping and sportier valving, you’ll be able to find your personal sweet spot between sportiness and comfort.
However, if your primary concern is with ride quality, then this comfort kit is for you. It’s less expensive and softer than the comfort adjustable kit (even at its softest setting). The only exception to that rule would be if you live in an area that sees a lot of road salt use in the winter. In that case, the Comfort Adjustable kit would still be the recommended choice as the Comfort Adjustable kit is stainless steel, so the bodies will not corrode.
Now before you ask, no, we do not currently have plans on releasing a non-adjustable stainless steel comfort kit. It would be nice for those who live up North, but unfortunately, it would simply be too many variants for one platform.
What Makes This Kit Ride So Well? MPP comfort coilovers were designed for the user who wants to improve the ride quality while having the ability to fine-tune the ride height to his or her exact preference. These coilovers offer what we feel is the optimal comfort-oriented ride for a Model Y. It removes a lot of the harshness caused by the firm Tesla damper and OE bump stop engagement. With tons of travel, you can clobber potholes and large ruts in the road without even feeling it. In fact, the faster you go the smoother it gets!
An aftermarket suspension can make or break the enjoyment of a vehicle. Unfortunately for Model Y owners, Tesla tuned the suspension to engage the bump stops fairly early on in the travel of the suspension. The OE bump stops increase the spring rate of the suspension very rapidly when hitting large bumps. In addition, the factory shock absorbers are harsh over large impacts. The combination of these two factors leads to a feeling of “crashing” into potholes and bumps with a hard landing. The MPP comfort kit allows more travel before engaging the bump stops, and the dampers are valved to soak up bumps and potholes without giving you that “hard landing” feeling. Simply, we use more of the available suspension travel to give you a more comfortable ride, but the dampers are tuned in a way to ensure that the body never feels floaty or unstable.
What Is The Ride Height Range This Kit Is Designed For? MPP supports a ride range of ride height adjustments with our kit, from just over the factory Performance Model Y ride height down to about as low as you’d ever want to go. For those of you looking to raise your Y, we have great news. This kit can be used in combination with our Mountain Pass Performance 1.75″ Suspension Lift Kit to add 1.75″ to the ride height!
If the ride height you are targeting is below the Performance Model Y, or if you’re using our lift kit to raise your Y, our Rear Camber Arms are basically mandatory. Your rear tire wear without them will be excessive and the camber will be well outside of what is acceptable.

Note: The Model Y has already had numerous spring revisions, so the best bet is to measure your vehicle if you’re looking to confirm the exact amount of lowering, however, we can confidently say our kit offers the maximum allowed lowering before there is a risk of suspension interference.

Installation is very straightforward. The OEM top-hats are retained and as such a spring compressor is required to disassemble the factory front dampers. Nothing on the car needs to be permanently modified or damaged for installation.
