1992-1995 Honda Civic Suspension Testing

1992-1995 Honda Civic Suspension Testing

While this car has been out of production for well over 20 years now, we still find that the 1992-1995 Honda Civic is still a good seller in terms of our suspension products. Many older vehicles don’t really fare so well when it comes to aftermarket parts. Many parts being discontinued due to little demand. […]

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

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, […]

Once again, we’ve been given the opportunity to work closely with the guys at Toyota Motorsports as they build the brand new, redesigned Toyota Camry set to be released this Summer.

Typically following the SEMA Show in Las Vegas is a few race events that we look forward to. One of them is Global Time Attack’s Super Lap Battle at Buttonwillow Raceway Park.

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 […]

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. We typically like to inspect all suspension components, not just coilovers, during every oil change (every 5,000 miles). Suspension, and not just the shock absorbers, have quite a bit […]

Global Time Attack’s Super Lap Battle 2016

Global Time Attack’s Super Lap Battle 2016

This week is the Super Lap Battle Time Attack event at Buttonwillow Raceway Park, hosted by Global Time Attack. Damn, that’s a mouthful to say… Anyhow, we’ve continued to attend the event for the past 6 consecutive years now. Our main purpose is to check out how the event goes, see how it has grown, […]

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 […]
