What is Wrought Aluminum?

What is Wrought Aluminum?

We have some literature about our products that explain the type of materials we use in our suspension kits. One of the terms we hear for our spring seats and seat locks (for adjusting ride height, for example) and upper spring seats/adaptors  is that they’re made from “wrought aluminum”. If you’re like me, then maybe […]

“Yeah, I’ve got a set of TEIN Coils”

“Yeah, I’ve got a set of TEIN Coils”

Whenever we hear that (blog title), we tend to understand that a customer has a set of our lowering springs. However, for some strange reason, people online or that call us are referring to our suspension kits as coils, whether it be a complete suspension kit like a STREET FLEX or STREET BASIS,  even a […]

Wheel Fitment Complaint

Wheel Fitment Complaint

It seems as though lately we’ve been having a high increase in complaints from consumers about tire rubbing. Now this rubbing encountered is not necessarily coming from the original OE wheel and tires but rather aftermarket wheel and tire set ups.     With this in mind a common sense factor should be taken into […]

New Products from TEIN USA

A Hit or Miss Situation

During December 2012 we received a call from Bruce. He is the owner of  DeDona Tint & Sound, Inc. in Greensboro, NC.

Not so much in how it operates, but more so in regards to what is really necessary to have. Many consumers have the understanding that adjustable suspension gives their car a certain […]

Happy Holidays From TEIN USA!

From all of us at TEIN USA, Inc., Merry Christmas! We put some Group N dampers on Santa’s Sleigh, hoping that he’ll get to your house faster. But, it looks like he’ll need more reindeer power to put it to good use. Oh, and TEIN USA Operations will be closed from December 24-25th and resume […]
