A Cleverly Mounted Defi Advance ZD!!

A Cleverly Mounted Defi Advance ZD!!

Not too long ago, we were contacted by Mike Bratcher of Riseful. He was really interested in Defi’s Advance ZD unit as a solution for metering his engine without the clutter of gauge dials mounted on and around his dash. He later followed up with us, wanting to order more Advance ZD units, and it […]

Another Set of TEIN Specialized Dampers Made!!!

Another Set of TEIN Specialized Dampers Made!!!

Honestly, our Specialized Damper program hasn’t really taken off like it has overseas. However, there are a few customers stateside that have interest in getting a completely custom suspension made by us, instead of having to piece together their own coilover using damper inserts and some spring setup they’ve found online. Nothing necessarily wrong with […]

STREET FLEX Dampers for 2010+ Toyota Sienna

STREET FLEX Dampers for 2010+ Toyota Sienna

That’s no typo. Due to a growing demand for complete suspension kits for the minivan market, we’ve completed testing on the 2010+ Toyota Siennas! Surprisingly. the very same Sienna we sell in the U.S. is being sold in Asia, where the first demand for a suspension kit started. So we figured that we’d also start […]

Reginald Cunanan’s EVO X

Reginald Cunanan’s EVO X

We’re glad to sponsor Reginald Cunanan and his Mitsubishi EVO X for the 2015 season! This young guy already has a well-built show car and even had some coilovers already on his car. Fortunately for us, he was in the market for a suspension kit to improve his ride, since he didn’t find satisfaction with […]

Identifying FLEX Z Coilovers

Identifying FLEX Z Coilovers

Honestly, there really isn’t much of a difference from FLEX Z to STREET FLEX dampers physically. Really, the only thing, other than verifying the part number on the bottom bracket (silver Caution sticker), is to check the damper itself. As we have mentioned, the FLEX Z dampers are fully sealed units, which mean it cannot […]

The New FLEX Z and FLEX A Coilovers Have Arrived!!!

The New FLEX Z and FLEX A Coilovers Have Arrived!!!

Well, the FLEX Z at least. FLEX A coilovers are available, but currently as special order due to limited application availability in Japan. Anyway, this new line has been in high anticipation since we released our notification about it. Afterall, it’s low starting price (starts at $800) has a huge appeal to consumers that are […]

Defi USDM Racer Series High Boost Gauge (max45PSI)

Defi will soon release their USDM Racer Series high boost gauge! We’re expecting them to arrive early Summer 2015. These gauges will feature a peak reading of 45PSI. And yes, that is PSI and not kPa. That means a more familiar reading that most U.S. consumers understand, and also do tuning with! No need to […]

Our In-House Engineer’s personal Scion FR-S

While most of us are pretty much desk jockeys here at TEIN USA (just kidding!), some of our staff enjoy spending their free time at the local race track. Local to us southern Californians is something like a 1 hour drive on average. One such racing enthusiast is our very own in-house engineer, Shuichiro (a.k.a.- […]

TEIN Has Two Manufacturing Plants?!

TEIN Has Two Manufacturing Plants?!

That is correct! Earlier in 2014, we posted about the new TEIN China manufacturing plant, which construction of the plant was completed before the end of the year. This new plant will be focusing on production of our upcoming line of performance replacement dampers. YES, we will finally be working on replacement dampers designed to […]

TEIN Replacement Single Dampers

As many of our customers are already aware, we’re able to sell single dampers as replacements. While not as cost-effective as rebuilding your dampers, it is a better time-saving method of getting your vehicle back on the road.  We know that some customers have heard from auto parts stores (probably non-authorized TEIN dealers) that TEIN […]
