i have a set of tein ss and it's not good on my back because i feel the road a little too much. so has anyone got a comfortable set of coilovers...i know of tein flex (not sure about) and there is tein cs. i want something that rides like stock or better. any suggestions on other coilovers i can look into?

I have the Zeals and they are very close to stock comfort. Even more impressive is that my girlfriend cannot tell the difference. That says a lot!

- I must be on crack or my ass just has a lot of cushion

- or maybe beacuse I have not rode on anything else, so there is nothing for me to compare to... but mine feels good....

Some more info
From this thread http://www.is300.net/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=13350770&highlight=tein+coil

CS may be too soft(?)
Flex is 'just right' (?)


According to Inochi3:
i believe the tein cs have 8/6 spring rates which are probably the softest there is for coilovers, i would get the tein flex if that was an option, i believe they have 10/8 spring rates, someone correct me if i'm wrong
http://www.is300.net/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=13350730&highlight=tein+coil
The softer the rate, the closer to stock


Also, for the Flex the issue of rust:

But still lots of ppl with the Flex:

if you are set on coilocvers don't forget apexi WS these are supposed to be pretty damn soft, a member got rid of them cause they were too soft and went for the N1 so that sounds like they are pretty soft
