Tein S.tech
did anyone have Tein S.tech springs installed? any pictures? Since I know the TRD is not dropping that much, so I wonder if Tein springs drop nicer (they say drop 1.5"). Or I should wait for the Tein basic coilover come out?

me and my homie installed my Teins s-tech last weekend and i love the way it's dropped..it's not that much but it's pretty decent..the ride quality is pretty good too..i would recommend it..im planning to get a body kit in the future, so i think 1.4"/1.5" is just the right amount of drop so i wont scrape all the time smile

sup kim! im not that hardcore lol..actually, it was my first time doing it..my homie has more experience than i have so he did most of the job..it's not really that hard, in my opinion..it's just a matter of which bolts to unscrew..the fronts were really easy to install compared to the rears..i wish i could give you a step by step instruction..it took us about 6-7 hours doing the whole install..we spent most of the time working on the rears..i got mine for $150..i live in l.a., yeah, maybe i can help you out but the thing is, if something went wrong, i dont wanna be responsible for it, you know..i can maybe guide you or something..peace!

thanks Dondie, wow 6-7 hours damn thats long shocked but anyways naw if i mess up oh well i'll just buy a new car grin i would never hold some one else responsible, especially if i asked for the help and agreed to that action. but yeah i guess if some one could tell me how to do it it would be quicker. or maybe a shop is my best bet since the rear usually gives trouble to people.
