Default Tein S-Tech Springs- Are they Progressive?

I am seeing conflicting images online. Are the Tien S-Tech lowering springs (commonly found on Ebay) progressive? See the conflicting images below. Are they like the first image (Progressive) or the second image (Non Progressive)? (If anyone wants to talk me out of Tein, please do so now)

The springs in the top are picturing in the un-edited post are progressive.

The lower picture are not progressive.

Many advertisers vendors, suppliers of parts only use available file pictures which may not be what the part or in this case what the springs physically are. You need to carefully read the ad or contact the supplier and ask them directly. Even Chrysler was know for using old file pictures with there sales brochures of newer model PT's even the difference between 1st and 2nd gen models.

I know the first picture is progressive and the second picture is not. My question was, what does Tein actually make for the PT?

I found one ad that shows the first image and another that shows the second. Obviously one of them (or both) is using a stock photo.

I would like someone who has ordered Tein springs before or who has seen them in person to tell me if they are progressive like the first picture or non progressive like the second.

According to the AutoAnything AD, they ARE Progressive.

I have them they are progressive. But I would recommend to contact THE SUPPLIER WHEN YOU ORDER THEM TO BE SURE.

They may have more then one option or may have changed there type supplied?

New to the site and bounced around before finding this thread about Tein springs. Will the Tein SKG10-AUB00 set of lowering springs work on an '05 base convertible. Not much of a mechanic but hate to do things twice, any help would be great.


I have an electric blue '05 with 130k that runs great, still love it and after seeing some versions lowered this is the look I'm after.

"Tein S-Tech Springs- Are they Progressive?"

Yes.
They tried conservative springs, but they only worked going backwards...
