Talking Evo x tein s-tech lowering springs

I'v got a evo X Fq330 and rather than go down the coilovers route , I'v been thinking about going for a lowering spring. Because standard eibachs are too high. Been looking at Tein s-tech, found some info on here but I'm getting a bit confused on best options to take. I'm gonna avoid eibach due to hearing bad stories about them. So thinking about going for the Teins. Looking at infomation lowers front 1.4 inch and rear 1 inch but when I'm looking to purchase some it's saying rear drop is 15 mm. Just wondered if anyone could highlight me on this or if anyone is useing them on their ten. Any pics or any info or opinions would be appreciated. thanks

I went this route on my Scooby, it was horrible.

I have found over the years are that when using lowering springs you often get an uneven drop front and rear.

I have an Evo X FQ360 and I have just bought the KW3s from Indigo GT.

1475 derived and they are normally closer to 1900.

All the feedback has been very good, softer ride than stock but with better natural stiffness.

3 way adjustability, perfect ride height and much better handling.

Please don't waste your money, I have tried Teins on my Scooby,H & Rs on my golf and Eibachs on my M3, the Eibach's are the only ones I have had any success with and they seem to be a no no based on the feedback of many members on here.

Depends what you use the car for in my opinion. I've got them on my 10 and I haven't noticed any significant difference but I just drive on road so never really tested. Found the drop perfect lost the monster truck look!

Heres a pic of the Tein springs fitted,not too low.Drops the front more to give a similar arch gap as the rear



..normal road use only and so far no adverse handling effects
