Lindemann Engineering:

Suspension Solutions For The Future


The best teams combine complementary qualities into a winning operation.

Suspension guru Jim Lindemann was a genius, an engineer and an artist. Racer and tuner Ed Sorbo is serious, structured and methodical. Together, they created an operation that helps you become a winner.

Lindemann Engineering now is operated by Sorbo, who partnered with Lindemann early in 2011 to create an operation that is taking the company into the future.

Sorbo first started working with Lindemann in 1998, and Lindemann sponsored Sorbo’s racing adventures, which have taken Sorbo to the podium of the AMA 250GP class.

“Everything Jim taught me made sense,” Sorbo says. “Whenever I followed his path, my bike worked better and I went faster. Turn Six at Infineon Raceway was the clincher for me, Jim exorcised the chatter from my Yamaha YZF-R6. My understanding of the problem was incomplete. Jim could feel the problem and used his understanding to fix it.”

Lindemann died of cancer in 2011. Sorbo moved the business into a new location in Southern California.

The Goal: To use the same understanding of suspension dynamics that have always been the hallmarks of Lindemann Engineering to produce the suspension solution you need – and outstanding customer service.
