Default Volks CE28N Tein Super Street Flex on STI 08

Hey Guys, I need your help. A customer bought some Volks CE28n for an STI 08. The wheels are 18x9 and 255 tires. We had them installed and the tire was hitting the car in bumps... so the customer order a Tein Super Street Flex in order for the suspension is more stiff. We had it installed and the car came 5 times since the suspension still goes down. It seems that itīs not holding the load of the car. We adjust it to the highest and stiff but nothing. The susp goes down and itīs still hiting the tire. Any help with this? I dont think that the suspension has any defect but I am not sure why it goes down so much. Someone help me.

Sounds like maybe the customer should take his/her car to a shop that knows how to install a set of coil-overs and properly set the ride height.

But could they be damage or other thing is that they are already like that (confort issue) that they would go down so much. I have to call TEIN to check with them, has any one had this issue before?

Car is too low, or the wheel offset is wrong. Why not try rolling the fenders? You don't go to a 9" wheel without making sure offset is dead on perfect, or near enough with out some fender rolling....

your customer chose a poor suspension system. i would rather be stock than on the tein ss flex. what are the offsets of the wheels and have you rolled the fenders?
