Tein S-Tech Springs- INSTALLED PICS!!!

I just put the springs on today, so in a few days I'm going to post up some high quality pics with the settled in height. Overall, I am VERY impressed with these springs. I know the brand, and I knew I was confident in this purchase. Tein does a lot of R+D to figure out how they're going to engineer their springs so that they have minimal stress on the stock struts. The ride feels like stock. Its not too low, and not too high, it is a PERFECT drop IMO. On the drive home I almost forgot I did the install today, it feels so smooth. Its not the stiff feeling you would picture with dropping a car. Going over the railroad was a little different, not a lot, I really had to pay attention to notice the difference. Normal driving/handling is slightly stiffer.Corners sharper. Right now, there's a 2 finger gap all around. Looks wise....well, see for yourself:



literally just down from the lift....


an hour after...



Right before I left work...




**** I know these are really shitty quality pics, but I will be posting up some good ones after Thursday...stay tuned!!!****

Nice! I installed them too last week but the car is sitting in the garage for a least another month, happy to hear about the handling.

Looks Great!

About how much was it to get them installed?

Im looking into getting the Eibach Pro-Kit Lowering Springs and I am trying to budget the install.

HAHA! I may add that my girlfriend uses my account and looks at others rides and compairs with mine. So far only Chris at VT is the clossest to me along with Jim in ride hight. She makes fun of my car by calling it truck after I lifted it a bit more. Still looks a bit low but way better than my Eibach lowering springs, which those still are lower than these TIeNS.

But yea bro, sorry to steal your thunder, I tend to do that a lot. Looks good! Great mod, enjoy! Let us know how she handels.

wait.... he has the rwd coupe . com decal... banned!
