Exclamation Tein Monoflex Preload issues! Emergency!

Hello guys,

I just got the Tein MonoFlex Kit for my 08 STi. There are A LOT of problems of setting. I've already put those on my car without preload them. So it's kinda urgent!!! The problem is I DON'T know how to adjust them at all. Like the camber, ride height, spring rate. What measurements should I set? I just wanna be a little be lower then stock ride height. The front and rear should be equal or not? Thanks for answering!!!

read the directions that came with them. put a little preload on them and adjust the bodys into the flange mounting. or just post up pics, or did you have these installed by a pro? if so have them adjust them

Call the vendor whom you used for the purchase. After sale support is one of the reasons they are there.

I got the manual from Tein today. And I will just set those measurement as Tein said. By the way, really don't recommend the Tein monoflex+EDFC kit. If you set a lower ride height the motor of EDFC will be expose but it should be covered by the cylinder(the front motors are settled at the bottom).

yes the beauty of inverted design!

the rear is way easier to adjust from the bottom because you don't have to take out the back seat every time (at least with the GD)..
