The preset damping and spring height are very close to stock but definetly a noticeable difference in handling around a corner. Would recommend for Daily Driver

If your looking for affordable reliable coilovers with camber plates than these twin coilovers are the one. The only downside is that they aren’t rebuildable .
Best bang for your buck

I have no regrets buying these coilovers. It's worth buying for. I've been using this as my daily driver and it never gives me any disappointment. Not only it makes my frs looks sick but it also gives a better performance than the stock suspension. I set mine dampers to 5 clicks and trust me, you'll love it. If you want it smooth, you can click it all the way. I understand that these are not rebuildable, but to think about it, I'd rather get a new set of these than have a rebuildable ones. This worth every penny.
Best bang for buck!

These coilovers are the best setup in this price range by far, I say they exceed every coilover up until you reach Fortune Auto 500 prices. They get you very low without sacrificing ride quality they actually drive better than OEM suspension and are much more comfortable than OEM. I run them at 5 clicks from the stiffest dampening setting and it still is much more comfortable of a ride than any other setup I have ridden in.
Perfect coilovers for daily driver duties.

Picked this up as an upgrade from RCE yellow lowering springs (4.5k) and stock dampers. In terms of ride comfort, the Tein Flex Z's blow my old spring/strut combo out of the water. With the stiffness settings set at 5F/6R (from full stiff), these coilovers provide much better performance. The dampening and rebound are exceptional...they are super smooth and comfortable to ride on.
If you want a softer setting, you can dial it down...for sportier setting, turn the stiffness up!
These coilovers come with camber plates and two locking rings...one to set the preload with and the other to set the ride height. No matter how low you go, your damper stroke isn't compromised. These coilovers come preassembled...you will however need to set it up before installing it to your car. There's no need to fiddle around with the stock tophats.
The only thing that's not favorable with these coilovers is that they are not rebuildable. I am however confident that these coilovers will last as they are made in Japan by a company known for quality suspension products,
Thie Tein Flex Z's are perfect for those who want a set of coilovers that won't break bank, offer features available on more expensive coilovers, and provides an excellent balance between aesthetics, performance and comfort.
