People with Tein S-Tech springs..

How do you like them?

Spring rate? Ride? Drop?

I may have just gotten a really great deal on them and I wanted them to begin with.

I haven't had those, but if the deal is really good, snatch em up and if you get bad reviews later, just sell em off for a profit

Re: People with Tein S-Tech springs..

Yeah $75 would have been a pretty good deal considering they always want around $200 on ebay.
