Cheapest place to buy Tein S-Techs
Where would be the cheapest place to buy these springs? Also do you think these springs would be a good drop for my car with 215/35/18?

Are you planning on putting a body kit on? I also hear Tein S-Techs have a tendency to squeak when your turn the wheel.

I would say Hotchkis, better brand, better look, and nicer spirngs, its a better drop overall, thats just my opinion though.

1 3/8" in front, 1 7/8" in the back. Gives it that "center of gravity" look.
