Question Tein Springs?

Hey, just looking for some advice and pics from other scooby owners, looking at changing out the stock springs as been to my local tuning centre and had my old shocks checked and there fine so just changing the springs out for Teins, has anybody got any info on them regarding ride comfort and how they make the car feel handling wise? also any pics would be appreciated so i can compare the drop from standard...... cheers

Re: Tein Springs?

I had a cracked spring on mine so i went for eiback pro springs. They give a nice ride but only thing i noticed was that they raised the car by about 1" over the ones on originaly. They were ment to lower by 35m. The original one were very hard But these give just the right amount of movement. Well i like them anyway The original springs were very low so not standard, dont know what they were?

Sounds like you had aftermarket springs anyway, but remember that springs settle over time so new springs will often raise the car ever so slightly.

Thanks for the info m8, glad to hear good things bout these springs, always better to hear from someone who runs them as opinions vary, do you get any rub in the back when fully loaded also what size wheels are you running? looking for a nice level drop as i feel the front end is to high stock
