        Tein is a proper brand and not ebay shit. They're certainly no Penske/Ohlins/Multimatic/Moton/etc, but even their Street line is reasonably okay on a budget.

        KW, Ohlins, JRZ...

        KW is slop just like Tein.

    Tein are one of the smarter Japanese brands who recognised the threat from cheaper south-east Asian coilover brands and set up their own Chinese factory to produce their own budget entry-level coilover line.
    So they have a price comparable to the better knock-off brands but with a JDM reputation and brand recognition.

    If you just want to dial ride height and bounce around then cheap ricer shocks are perfect.

    >cheap

    >preload/damping adjustable so they don't ride like complete shit
    they are perfectly adequate for how most dudes use coilovers
    if you're going racing you should get something better though

    cheap and people don't know any better.
    OEM stuff outperforms shit like Teins easily.
    but morons think an adjustable perch and a shiny body = more better.

    ok morons, at what price point do coilovers become better than factory spec suspension? In handing terms only, looks (rideheight/ extreme camber) don't count. Is the best budget choice just a set of OEM/bilstein springs and shocks plus adjustable topmounts?

      Depends on the car. Usually about $3000.

        And by usually I mean cars that are worth modifying in the first place AND the coilovers are 2 or 3 adjustable. You can get good solely height-adjustable coilovers for $2000.

      just look at country of origin, its not about price. when a swedish man makes a damper, its good. When a japaneese man makes a damper, its good. When someone who isnt japaneese or swedish makes a damper its shit. its so easy. Anyone who argues against this has no tools and is a massive fricking ricer.

    My project shitbox has tiens that came from a wrecked donor car where they were already worn in not new looking and they've been on the car for 6 years now. Solid brand in my opinion.

    Because they're cheap, and still very good.
    The main trade off is they're non-rebuildable and if one starts leaking you've gotta replace the entire coil-over instead of repairing or just replacing the strut.
    I've had a set of Flex-Z on one of my cars for 5 years now, damn near 70kmiles and they're still holding up incredibly well. I wasn't expecting them to last more than a couple years

      Only the flex z's are non rebuildable as they're crimped. Every other strut they make has a threaded cap.

      OMG when he said that, you should've taken off the Nitrons, put the teins in, sell the car to him and sell the Nitrons for a profit. Nitrons mop the floor with the Teins. The cost of being ignorant.
