Please keep everybody up to date on these. I'm in need of a drop. I see that you were inquiring about the SI, were there any updates for us with LX coupes?

My honest past experience with TEIN product are their springs are pretty good but their coilovers are inconsistent. I had KYB-AGX and TEIN S-Tech combo and lasted me for 3 years and took them off for TEIN S-Tech Coilover and had several problems starting at installation. None of them had the same pressure. One strut had scratches on it. and it was hell to adjust evenly accord to soft or stiff. Just my two cents. But everything deserve another chance and I might just got the lemon of the batch so good luck to those who purchase them and let the rest of us know how it turns out. Hope theyve gotten better.

I didnt ask about non Si vehicles but they were fast to respond and if enough people inquire maybe they will speed up the process.

Thanks for posting the info ADE....ive never had any Tein products ,other than the 8th gen H tech that i just now sent back and honestly i have to say i would just about buy anything right now that was a quality lowering product for our cars except coilovers. with spring rates at close to 700 idk if i could stand the ride.

TEIN response to my F/B post.

I just got this response from TEIN about their products for our '12 Civics.

Hi Michael! We actually finished testing the vehicle last month for both damper kits and springs. We are hoping we will have products like the Flex damper kit available by late Summer!

Please keep posted with us as we try to update our new products information on a daily basis!

I had the Tein Stechs in my corolla and not even a week into them and the front shocks went from bad to holly shiat in like a month.... I would never trust tein again... The rates are toooo low.. Feels like ure bouncing around... Ive heard that the coilovers are good. But after that experience..nahh.. I now have the skunk2 but Im waiting on H&R to show us the race springs.. Ive had those in two of my previous cars and they are awesome..
