Thanks for the infoI quite like my Flex's, even more now after I raised them up a bit.
I know I paid too much for them, but whatever, I had a rare opportunity slapping me in the face that made me do it.
Can't say much as to whether or not they're substantially better (or not) than other options.
Thanks again for your help. According to the pic I posted, would you say that's the height where it doesn't matter anymore? The ride is gonna be crap regardless? How big is too big for extended top hats? Maybe I should just raise these and get top hats?No matter what coil over you have, there's a limit to how low you can go before it doesn't matter how much you spend. Extended top hats are key.
With that said, Tein Street Flex is going to be the only Tein you can get for under $1000. Even though they're cheaper, skip the "Z" line. Bushings, oil, and shock bodies are Chinese (maybe Taiwan - can't recall right now). Assembled in Japan though lol. Kind of like Fortune Auto, parts made in Taiwan, but assembled in USA. But they claim made in USA... Not sure how I feel about that.
Anyways, I've run Tein Flex low (the original not the street flex). I liked them. Were they were worth the $600 price difference between those and the Street series I currently have? No. Did I feel better telling people I had Teins instead of Megan's? Duh! Haha.
