Default 2017 WRX/ Tein flex a

i originally purchased h&r springs, the ride was too soft for me and didn't sit level how I wanted.

I then chose to install tein flex a based on my prior experience using tein products. I had tein ss on my 06 Evo.

my car has stock wheels with oe tires


product quality is top notch, along with packaging and all information tein produces for the coilovers you think it would reflect the actual product.

I'm highly dissatisfied. I cannot get them to ride "perfect" (not too soft, not to stiff, no bounce)

adjusting damping less makes the ride either too soft/bouncy, or increasing makes the ride too stiff and STILL bounces.. I think these coil over are ok, I wouldn't recommend them to anyone though.

now what I ask of you all, is which coilovers will provide the best ride for a daily driver and still allow me to reduce the gap between fender and tire.

ive looked into the rce yellows for stock shocks, and even saw they're coming out wit the gtworx koni's. that's all great and stuff but there is no adjustable perches.

help me out guys!

Maybe adjust the preload on the springs. It would be more stiff and you could start over with the dampening.

Which end of the car feels like it's bouncing? Do you know what the spring rates are?

Are you trying to run the same damper settings at both ends of the car?

How many miles do you have on them so far? Sometimes, there seems to be a bit of initial seal 'stiction' with dampers (in general).
