On Tein's website for the S-Tech's it shows that the 4cyl Sedan uses the same springs as the wagon. But the 6cyl sedan is a different part number. Am I missing somthing here, or does this not make any sense at all?:huh:

That is weird. Does your back end sag at all or no? Do you have any pics?

You're correct, that shouldn't be. The wagon weighs several hundred pounds more and thus would have a 50% greater drop given the same springs. Eibach pulled a similar stunt by reusing the 6s springs on the Mazdaspeed.

Of course, you don't actually see a 50% greater drop because the car simply rests on its bump stops. Your ride quality, safety, and handling go to hell, but they've already got your money.

Poor, Tein. Poor.

I havnt noticed any problems. I jsut wanted to lower it a little. The rear doesnt sag, I only lowered the rear maybe an inch. The teins are almost the same length as the stock springs.
I want to get coilovers, but this was a cheap alternative for a quick fix.


I just saw that you are talking about the Stech's. I have the Htech's. They are not as much of a drop, but are still the same spring for the wagon and 4 cyl.

Ok cause I have an 05 V6 Hatch and I allready purchased the Tein S-Tech V6 Sedan Springs for it. After reading all the post on here though I realize its gonna sag alot in the back. So I called the store and they said they can do an exchange for me for the Tein S-Tech Wagon springs instead? Would this be correct then? Also I noticed in the box I have now of the V6 Sedan springs there is a chart of how much you have to cut the bump stops. If I get the wagon springs does anyone knoe how much I would have to cut them for the hatch as it will probably only list for the wagon.

Thanks :)

There is no correct answer. If I read it correct, you are planning on putting the wagon springs, which are designed for the 4cyl, on your V6 hatchback.

Thats a nono in my book. Pretty much re-iterate what stretch already posted.....
