well put it this way brand new tein basics are 900 or more ss are 1200 or more with pillow upper mounts
brand new d-specs are 550....

i rather get new d-spec shocks and pair them with some lowering springs than upgrade to groudn controls than tein basics

the package is 37lbs...its a lot less than it looks like but than again its not much other than a lot of padding inside the box...its coming together nicely except the fact that i bought these shocks for the coilovers just to find out they dont fit and now i got bomb *** shocks and im looking for s techs or whatnot

only reason i got the d-specs instead of blues is because the price i was getting the blues at was only a $100 or so less than the d-specs so i might as well shell out the extra cash for the top shocks...

according to the instruction booklet they come stock at the hardest setting and i cant even get the strut piston rod to even go down a few milimeters

oooh the anticipation of putting them on is killing me....anyone got tein s-techs or hr sports or something for sale?
