Tein Comfort Sport Coil-overs

Just finished reading the a section of the Import Tuner/Tein IS-F project they're working on and I came across a very interesting section...

TEIN:
"Once the chassis was nice and stitch welded, custom Tein Comfort Sport monotube coilovers went in to replace the stock shocks and struts. With a complete R&D team in the U.S., Tein was able to revalve the Comfort Sports in-house, for more aggressive damping. A coilover based on this setup should be available for all IS Fs soon."

Looks very promising... Speaking from personal experience Tein makes great suspension products for the Japanese Domestic Market, especially if that suspension system incorporates the EDFC (Electronic Dampening Force Controller) that will be a big plus!

If anybody has more information on the suspension post it right here... I'll also be on the look out for more info.

TEIN does make a great product. I heard from my buddy who built the car with them in that he was really impressed with them.

I need to get some additional feedback on this item but I am considering it. After tracking the car over the weekend there is one weakness I noticed which I would like to share; the stock suspension needs to be a bit more stiff.

Yes, that would be true >

"After tracking the car over the weekend there is one weakness I noticed which I would like to share; the stock suspension needs to be a bit more stiff."

IMHO most street cars and not set up for hard tracking so they need some additional help/support when run on the track unless the rules/specs forbid any mods. But don't forget the inverse is also true! Cars set up for the track are pretty brutal to drive on the street, especially on a daily basis. That's why having easily reached ajustable shocks may be a good comprimise, should such a thing ever become available for our IS-F's.

One size fits all (250, 350 & F) Somehow doesn't sound right to me

they're not the same. tein actually has an IS F specific setup now. depending on what option you choose they would prob send the correct part number.

Does any company offer an upgraded shock? Like could you use the F sport shocks with the F?
