A Look Back at the TEIN S15

Coilover Spring Swap

Coilover Spring Swap

A Look Back at the TEIN Yaris

A Look Back at the TEIN Yaris

Back in 2006 TEIN modified a Toyota Yaris 3-dr as a track toy. We knew going into it that it would not have a lot of power or handle like a sports car but it was something anybody could have fun in. Started off with a detailed build plan and an awesome rendering made by […]

TEIN’s 2005 Ford Mustang GT

TEIN’s global involvement in producing aftermarket suspension goes well beyond the Japanese Domestic brands, such as Toyota, Nissan, Honda, etc.  In 2003, we started developing suspensions for European and U.S. Domestic brands. Soon after, we started campaigning our line of suspensions for these markets and had demo cars, like the E46 BMW M3(on TEIN SS-P) […]
