Well I just had my Tein Flex installed, and I had them set it to the softest setting. I have to say, the ride is hella bouncy now, and nothing like the ride I had before with eibach prokit/stock shocks. Is there some kind of break in period for the coilovers?
I really did not expect such a dramatic change in ride quality!

hehe Matt

I figured out the problem, the idiots who installed it turned the screws the wrong way :eek:
It was set at full hard! No wonder the ride was so uncomfortable
LOL

Remeber kids, anticlockwise = soft
clockwise = hard

(for the Flex that is)

Now at soft, ride is silky smooth, even better than with the prokit and stock shocks

Definitely recommend these shocks to anyone :D

Oh yeah, no noises have been noticed after installation.
Again, highly recommended to anyone looking for coilovers.
PM me if you have any other questions
