Default Tein Springs?

Has ANYONE installed Tein lowering springs? Would love to hear pros or cons before I purchase. Thanks!

The only cons IMHO is that they are GREEN!

There are no cons and really the only pro's maybe that they are from a long established company known in the automotive industry for quality suspension componets great customer service and support many racers through contingency programs or sponsorships.

IMO you should get them. There are none better only equals.

If you use the search feature you will find I did a thread on lowering springs . Tien is what I will be using on our PT for the project suspension which you can view my personal thread about our PT ( Nitro's PT Cruiser) The only thing is I had them powder coated RED.

You just need to watch for ungulations and adjust speed to compensate for the tongue weight. Otherwise you may drag or hit the bump stops.

Your steering is also going to be effected so naturally drive slower when towing.
