2017+ 86 & BRZ FLEX Z, FLEX A, & MONO SPORT Coilover Testing

2017+ 86 & BRZ FLEX Z, FLEX A, & MONO SPORT Coilover Testing

We just finished up some testing on the 2017 Subaru BRZ (and which would of course affect the 2017 Toyota 86). While the vehicles aren’t drastically different compared to 2012-2016 model years of the aforementioned vehicles (the 86 previously named the Scion FR-S), there are some small changes in suspension that affect how our existing […]

2016+ Mazda Miata (ND chassis) Testing

2016+ Mazda Miata (ND chassis) Testing

This week we had a new ND chassis Miata in for testing. FINALLY, after well over a year, we have our hands on one and can now verify fitment and do road testing. We must say that, even though we can technically just special order available kits from TEIN Japan, we’ve found that there is, […]

Test Cars Needed at TEIN USA!

Test Cars Needed at TEIN USA!

Since we’ve been working hard to release the latest suspension kits for 2016, we’ll always run into one hurdle in trying to get the newest products out to the consumer. Finding the correct vehicle for testing is one of those hurdles. We (TEIN USA) have always done our product development in our Downey, CA. facility […]

3-Way Damper Customization for Super Racing Suspension

3-Way Damper Customization for Super Racing Suspension

This has been a long time coming. We’ve actually had 3-way damping (Rebound, Low-Speed Compression, & High-Speed Compression) technology for a long while now, made for our N1 suspension. But, it is very expensive and mainly reserved for race teams only. We also developed one for our Gr.N and 4×4 dampers, which are much more […]

2014 Honda Civic Coilover Caution

Hello all, We wanted to give warning to owners of 2014 Honda Civic’s. Not too long ago, we conducted some more testing on the late model Civic, only to find that coilover fitment is not the same. This is due to a difference in knuckle/hub design from the 2012-2013 over the 2014 models. Current Civic […]

Nissan R35 GT-R Suspension

Nissan R35 GT-R Suspension

We’ve already had our popular Super Racing coilover kit available for the R35 GT-R. The TEIN group was quick to jump into the development on that car’s suspension from the day it was released internationally. However, we knew that the sales of the GT-R wouldn’t necessarily take the world over right away. After all, it […]

Street Basis for the Honda Element

Street Basis for the Honda Element

We recently went forward with testing of the Street Basis coilover which will replace the Basic. The Basic kit had some consumer concerns when it came down to the kits valving and also spring rates. Many consumers sent in the dampers to have the rears revalved to both a more aggressive spring rate and valving […]

Porsche 997 GT3 Coilover Testing

Porsche 997 GT3 Coilover Testing

You’ve read that correctly- we’re now testing on a 997 GT3 Porsche with our very own 3-way adjustable dampers! While Porsche’s aren’t necessarily anything new for us, we’ve only made a name for ourselves developing and producing products for the Japanese vehicle market (JDM, if you will). But, with increasing demands for products internationally, the […]
