here's a review: http://www.iwsti.com/reviews/showproduct.php?product=30

for the money, i'd be looking at KW, ast, zzyzx, etc. i trust racecomp and turn in concepts more than i trust a review on a forum.

they are ok. i have them on my wagon, they're not a bad street coilover, but they're not exactly the smoothest ride either..

the only thing i don't like was the adjustment range, i couldn't get my car lower than i wanted because the coilovers were limiting me.

you'd be better off finding some used flex's if money is an issue.. if not than just buy some flex's or even better kw3, or ohlins if you are really serious.

Lower than you wanted? How far down from stock were you trying to go?

I have them, and I agree with part of the post above. The ride is okay on the street, but can be a bit harsh over large bumps. Also kind of bouncing over certain stretches of freeway. I though they were definately too low the way they came set up so I raised my ride height. My car understeered much less when autoxing after I raised the height. I'm about to swap out the Teins for a set of Konis and Swift R-spec springs

Wow, thats reeeally low.....

Even Teins suggested lowering of 1.5-1.8" seems a little low for me. I'm just looking for about the same ride height I had with my Prodrive/AGX combo on my old bugeye (down by a little over an inch I think).

I would Imagine your ride gets pretty rough removing that much strut travel with all that lowering. How were they on the ride quality before you dropped it?

You have them as low as they'll go, and it's not a smooth ride?

Ever hear of "cause and effect?"

I don't have them, and if I get them, they will probably be set HIGHER than Tein sets them at from the factory. I'm just trying to get an idea of what they feel like at a reasonable lowering level of about an inch or so.

Le Wagon said he set his really low, I was just curious if he had an opinion on them as far as comfort goes pre and post drop.
