    Kinda off topic here, but i plan on getting a silvia and i looked up the HE Damper package by Tein.
    This package includes:

    Full length Adjustable shock absorber x4
    Main spring x4
    Lower spring Seat x4
    Spring Seat lock x 8
    Bump rubber x4
    Dust cover x4
    Pillow ball upper mount x 4
    Hook spanner x2
    Instruction manual

    Would this list sum up the full "up and down, spring and coilover" suspension? or would i need some other things to complete the set up, excluding tower bars, lower tie bars, etc.

    he is the same as the HA, minus the helper springs, and minus the adjustability.
    IMO, non adjustbale = shitty

    :werd: my race setting (2-4th hardest) rides like shit on daily driving and my daily driving setting (13-14th hardest) handels like shit on the twisties. I adjust the dampering all the time.

    Do you mean that it does not have adjustability in ride height or dampening force?

    with the damper settings, what would be more beneficial for daily driving... I know this type of suspension is not made for daily driving and made for drifting, but what would be the most tolerable settings out of the range of dampening force?

    Well yesterday I kinda drifted my sol, I just did not remember how to get out of the drift, resulting in me spinning out and going onto dirt. Dont worry, the sol and I are ok.
