Description

Great coilover for street and some fun track or autocross. A little stiffer springs than the ST Coilovers but not as stiff as the D2. This has non-adjustable shocks, and they are a nice combination of comfort and control. This kit feels like a set of good lowering springs and shocks, but the height is adjustable. Is this just as good as the ST coilover? It's very similar, but the spring rates are a little stiffer on this one; so it's not quite as comfortable as the ST coilover, but it's close. Also Tein's 1-year warranty isn't as good as ST's 5-year warranty. I would say that you are paying for warranty on the ST coilover. But these are really excellent. If you don't mind a little stiffer feel, these are excellent... not bad stiff... but stiffer.

Spring rates are listed in Tein documentation as 336/448, but we dyno'd the springs at 330/370... so the rear springs seemed to be a little bit softer than advertised... not a bad thing frankly when considering that the kit we tested on our own car drove and handle exceptionally well. Note that the ST coilover spring rates tested at 240/305 on our dyno (22% softer than these Street Basis coilovers).

Lowering
Front Lowering: up to -1.6"
Rear Lowering: up to -1.6"

The Tein Street Basis Z is the exact same kit as the Street Advance, except the Advance has adjustable shocks.
