    Except for the fact that Teins don't bounce, it is a very good ride.
    Here are some pics

    Rear driverside. (they are wet because I just washed my car)

    You cant see it that well in this pic but my piping was bent for the Del sol LCA's not the ITR's. :( The pipiing rests right on the LCA. It sometimes rattles in reverse and at stop lights. I am going to get that section relocated soon.

    Hope you liked!

    For all you who sport teins, how did you secure the front brake hose? I just used some Industrail strengh nylon zip ties

    If I have time tommrow, I will take a few pics of it in sunlight so you can get a better perspective of the height. It is really low in the front.

    Looks sweet man! I'd go .5-1 lower ride height wise, though.

    [​IMG] This picture is not a true testiment on the height because the tire blends into the wheel well because my carmera is on the wrong setting ;) and i did not feel like changing it. However, I think that I might lower it a tad more in the back, however, I can not until I relocate the piping for my muffler.

    the front brake hose bracket has to be romoved from the stock shock and placed onto the teins . . . sorry dude but you should really take it back apart . . . the bracket is easily hammered off, just hammer the bracket close to the shock to remove it

    when i got my car balanced i went with 6" chasis to ground in the rear and 5.5" chasis to ground up front ... that put it at a nice ride height (1" wheel gap) and almost perfect balance :)

    knock off mugen wheels :lol:

    That sticker wasn't put on by me, the previous owner put it on and I am scared that the paint may have faded since then and when I go to take it off, people will still see "Mugen Power" It is only one sticker, I dont care.

    np man, I used to work at a detail shop. heat gun it off, then buff the area with a light light buffing compound, it will blend fine.
