Coilover are alot different feeling then strut/spring. Its alot stiffer in cornering and bumps feel alot different. Not to mention its a different noise when you go over a bump. Different to the point where you freak out cuz you think something is wrong, but nothing is. I like them!

Thank you Fibuz

Yep, it is a different feeling, but you ignore any noises or weird feelings after coming out of the twisties

It is a very stiff setup, but several friends who had used other coilovers commented on their relateive quietness and solidness compared to other setups.

Did you end up rebuilding?

Haha, Teins...those HAs of yours really do need some attention biggreen96. I'd also like to know, cause my NAs are probably rebuildable.

what's the dampening and spring rate on those? You can change those specs can't you? What do you plan on running after you get them dialed in properly?

Do you know if you can use the TEIN EDFC with those coilovers?

Already go the alignment. Was 1 degree off on all my wheels except my front driver side where I was 3 degrees off. All back to 0 now.

I am pretty sure I can, not 100%, use the EDFC with these actually. I will have to do more resarch

Now that drop looks absolutely perfect. The wheel gap and everything looks good to me. I've been thinking about finding a coilover setup, but I doubt I'd drop the money. Good job.

I was a bit interested in the Teins when I heard about the EDFC, but because of the expense, I decided to wait and just get some AGX struts.

If you they are compatible and you decide to go that route, please post your results.

I like my firm ride, but I'm beginning to really want the capability of on the fly adjustments. Every time I drive into Downtown Seattle, I wish I could soften the dampening on the fly. The potholes/road surfaces in city are terrible.

You can't change ride height at all with AGXs, can you? It's just how much they dampen on bumps, correct?

Correct, I can adjust the dampening stiffness, but I can't control ride height.

The tein EDFC allows you do this on the fly instead of crawling under your car every time you want to adjust it.

Just to add a bit, the tein adjustments are interrior(trunk/engine bay)...not that it really matters, but for future people research tein and be/bh

Hey Guys I have a 1998 Subaru Legacy GT Limited Edition and I just bought from ebay Tein Type HA Coilovers for BD/BG body style and I was wondering if anyone had installed this set up if there is any information that talkes about adjustment high and spec. Mine looks almost the same the the picture in this thread but the mounting on the knuckle is different. Anything will help thanks.

Nice job man, hope you enjoy them! Are you running Tein's spring rates or did you pick something different?

You may want to doublecheck which part no. you have; Tein has both a non-EDFC and EDFC version for our cars...
