Adjusting Damping on a TEIN Coilover

Adjusting Damping on a TEIN Coilover

Just a quick reminder to those who are new to our adjustable suspension, specifically regarding damping setting (soft to stiff, and vice versa). With the exception of some racing kits like our N1 dampers or Gr.N rally dampers, our damping adjustable kits are 16-way adjustable, or 16 usable settings, if that’s easier to understand. Now, […]

Corrosion Protection

Corrosion Protection

Without a doubt, a huge hurdle we must face with our suspensions, other than properly tuning the dampers for a given application, is making sure it will last for many years. Of course being a wear & tear item, dampers don’t necessarily need to last forever. But that doesn’t stop us from trying to attain […]
