Yeah man i kno what ur talking about. They are the Super Street or u can get the Basic. The Super Street is $1350.00 and the Basic is undesided from the catalog that i have. All TEIN suspension are coilovers so u can change the ride height. The Super Street can get a EDFC ( Electronic Damoing Force Controller ), it goes for $380.00. I am thinking about getting this for my car.
If u want i can give u the number to call then so u can order them.

No, lol. He is talking about the S Tech springs. Not the coilover setup. the springs you can get from ebay for like 120 shipped. the springs are good from what ive heard, but they are a much stiffer spring rate than the stock SVT springs. They are also linear, NOT progressive. The Progressive spring rate will be easier on stock dampers. The Sportlines have almost the same spring rate as the stock SVT springs, and are progressive which will also ride better and "adjust" to the ride load. I have the sportlines and I love the way they ride and handle. the S tech springs i believe will drop it just as much as the sportlines will. Definatly tho, in a year or so i will have AGX struts and dampers to match the springs i have, but for now I have about 5000 Miles on the springs and my stock SVT struts and they are Fine.

dudley you're not gonna go with the Eibach Dampers for the Sportlines? [???:)]

so since they are linear and all my dampers are gonna go preety quick and if i got ppl in the car they aint gonna adjust if thats the case f that sportlines here i come...

Papo, I thought about the Eibach dampers, but i really loved the AGXs on my old hatch, and having the ability to adjust from soft to hard is sweet. I think i will be happier with the Agw combo.

Yes, the linear spring rate will be harder on the stock dampers. Not saying regular ones AREN't but the SVT struts and dampers ARE made for a VERY slight drop. the whole"performance" tuned, means they are a lil stiffer than regular foci dampers. The svt dampers I remember some one told me will handle up to 20% the advertised STOCK rate, and after that the ride quality sucks, and they will blow quick. I would go with the sportlines, but I am partial to them, cuz thats what i am on. but look around if you want something different but I am only saying since the S tech springs were my FIRST choice, i found out those nice lil facts about the linear spring rate, and the MUCH stiffer rate. .02
