I ordered a set of Teins and plan to add spacers too, did you use the 10mm or the 15mm spacers to be exact? what brand spacers are they? car looks drop dead gorgeous lowered, so evenly lowered too. I picked teins over eibachs this time for the IsF.

I have the Teins and they have been the best mod I've done to my car. They really make for a more compliant ride and in my opinion are the best looking spring option.

I got the Tien's too. Much better ride and it handles a lot better now. I would suggest getting the F Sport sway bar also (Doug G can get it for you if you like, he mailed mine to me and I vouch for the service). The only thing I think would be better than the sprins is to get some coilovers, it would be nice to make adjustments when wanted.

Couple things... 1. I would bet my life on your favorite color over anyone else in this forum for sure.. I think my tongue began turning blue as I continued scrolling down....

2. The F should have came right out of the box with those offsets you've got with the spacers. Looks absolutely great, should have been set up that way from day 1!!! Keep up the good work, but remember, change is good!!!!!!!!!!!!! as in COLOR!!! hahahahahaa

I too have Teins, any problems with the fronts balding in the insides in about 8k miles? I dont even drive it hard or track it...

Yeah, it looks as though there is a really aggressive camber set up. The funny thing is I put the Tien's on @ ~12k on the tires and they already had uneven wear.

Thanks for the post, I just dig my OEMs and cant find an aftermarket wheel that I think compares my only complaint was the offset i like closer to flush too...so now I can add spacers and get them to look right.
Cheers!
