About Swift Springs
All Springs are not created equal, the diameters and spring rates can be similar, but the process of manufacturing springs plays a huge factor in how they will perform. Through Swift Springs' extensive knowledge in performance springs, they have perfected the process of manufacturing springs that will outperform their competitors. Try Swift Springs on your vehicle, and experience what many racers are talking about. We strongly believe that you will feel the difference just like every other racer, and you might even wonder why you didn't try it sooner.
With this in mind, Swift Springs set out to produce a new material for coil springs: a proprietary steel alloy they call "HS5.TW". This material was created in order to maintain the 4 factors listed below, as well as achieving the fastest reaction speed possible to get compliance on road surface conditions. Swift springs are created with proprietary winding methods, as well as some other trade secrets focused on ensuring their springs separation from the standard market.
- The most consistent spring rate throughout the stroke
- The largest amount of stroke
- The highest durability against loss of spring height
- The lightest in weight
In the time since Swift Springs officially opened its doors in 1997, Swift Springs has dealt with many world class race teams in multitudes of different races including road racing, rally, off road, drift, autocross, pavement and dirt oval track, motorcycles, and more.

Swift Springs was founded in 1997 in Tokyo Japan as a motor sports division of Tokyo Hatsujo Manufacturing Co, Ltd. that has been leading the spring industry since 1924.
The purpose was to demonstrate our superior engineering in spring by developing the next generation of motor sports suspension coil springs. They had to have the best characteristics of any brand or design in the market, which required the springs to be the lightest in weight and most durable, and to exhibit the most linear characteristics while still being cost effective.
Since the formation of Swift, it has been lead by the former racer and suspension expert, Kei Yokota, and the chief engineer, Yasu Saito.
Their first-hand involvement within the race industry has propelled Swift quickly through the ranks of some of the world’s most reputable races. Swift springs quickly became one of the most recognized and respected name in performance coil springs in many genre of motor sports throughout the world. Being a part of the Tokyo Hatsujo spring corporation. Swift has a large collection of engineering research and development resources. Tokyo Hatsujo springs are used in most light to heavy industries and the dynamic has provided Swift with most advanced spring technologies and innovations available.
In Swift’s impressive motor sports history dated back to 1998, first was with Nissan Skyline GT-R in the Super Taikyu Endurance championship series in Japan. Then Swift got involved with the championship teams in Le Mans 24hrs, Nurburgring 24hrs, Super GT (JGTC), Super Taikyu series, D-1 World Grand Prix, F3, F3000, Formula Toyota, Circle Track Racing (ashpalt/dirt) and many other world class races.
