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, […]

Basic Suspension Maintenance Time!

Basic Suspension Maintenance Time!

Have you been inspecting your suspension periodically? No?? Why not??? Just like most other aspects of your vehicle, an inspection of your suspension should be done.

Where TEIN Sources Materials for Manufacturing

Where TEIN Sources Materials for Manufacturing

We’ve seen this topic come up as a discussion point for coilovers on automotive forums before. It’s a worthwhile discussion since many people will argue that this affects the “Made In Japan” label, or a “Made in Whatever-Country-We-Are-Talking-About” label, for that matter. Why is this important? To us, it’s good to know because, while we […]
