Thumbs up Updated W/pics: Tein SS-P Coilovers on My E92

I just installed my Tein SS-P suspension and its awesome I know everyone and their grand dad runs KW but I read a review from Euro Car magazine and they tested 3 suspensions at the Buttonwillow race track and compared the data on the 3 cars and the Tein actually did better then the KW V3 suspension so since I got a good deal through Harold at HP Autowerks In Santa barbra,CA whom also swore I wouldn't regret it ,so I went ahead and bought it (since if he was lying and wanted to make more money he could have sold me something more expensive right?) and I'm absolutly pleased it rides extremely smooth as well even at close to the hard setting it swallows the imperfections and handles extremly flat in corners with alot less body roll then stock.This kit also comes with adjustable front camber plates which H&R/KW Vx and Bilstein don't offer.This allows for more adjustability for the track and is one of the pluses that made this kit perform so well in the comparision.I'll post pictures later over the weekend after I get the height where I want it.The only issue I have is my front tires are too wide and tall (245/35/19) and if the suspension is set too low it rubs so I'll fugure that out by then as well as an Alignment.If your intrested in picking up a set I HIGHLY recommend them talk to Harold at HP Autowerks and he'll work you a great deal.This kit retails for $1650.00 and if you want the optional EDFC module which allows you to adjust the firmness of the coilovers both front and rear on the fly from inside the car a very cool feature which again none of the competitors currently offer.That cost an addidtional $410.00 or so but If you talk to Harold and tell him Jon Tillett sent your from this post and he'll work you better pricing.(805) 966-3200 and while your at it get a ITG Filter if you have a 335.

-Jon










Pillowball mounts upper mounts












PS. Please dont' try to post ignorant stuff like ""My co-workers moms boyfriends brother said that it sucked on his civic"" If you haven't had experience with this kit on this car don't bother posting a negative word.K!

Good stuff...

I've had Teins on my previous cars and i love them...

The pillowball mount that they give you, is it making any clunking noises? I had to rig my own rubber seating for the springs on my last car...

I put about 250miles on it yesterday at varying speeds including top speed limiter and I haven't heard any signifigant noise.

In your camber plate pics, the first one has two bolts on the left side securing the caster. The second pic does not have this bolt. What sides are these pics from and did each side use different bolt holes? How do you adjust your rebound? The rubber cap hides the adjustment fitting, but how do you get a tool in there without removing the tower brace or dropping the strut assembly? Are these units also compression adjustable? Can you post some pics of them installed on the car without the wheels for our reference?
