Hi I read allot about the TEIN S.TECH SPRING but I still dont know what to do.
I want to use them on STOCK Shocks but I dont know how long they will hold. Do anyone have some experience with TEIN S.TECH SPRINGS on STOCK Shock? Thanx

I Have a EG5 (d16z6)

Ok that is 1 :D.
Im choosing between Megan coilover sleeves and TEIN S.TECH springs.
Think the coilover sleeves will result in a bumpy ride? Thats what I heard

yeah, unless you get a real nice coilover and strut kit, they are usually a bit bumpier comared to just drop springs. At least from my expirience.

The tien s-techs are good for an average of about 1.5-1.8 inches. I run them and it is a pretty decent drop. Not too much, not too little. I think you will be okay on stock shocks. If you go much over 1.8-2.0", i would upgrade for the sake of saving you trouble in the future.

good luck and beware of the tein s-tech scam.. i dont know if its still arounds but be sure you buy from a legit seller.

no sir i do not. I run dropzone shocks. They provide a very good ride. I know people do run them on stock shocks without problems. I'm sure you could get away with it pretty easliy with the s-techs because the drop is so small. But if you are really worried about it then just put the s-techs on and think about upgrading your shocks in the future. not really a big deal.

NICE :D I hope my OEM shocks will hold the TEIN springs
they should hold up just fine. I would probably think about upgrading in the future, but they should be just fine for a while.

my cousin has them on his 98 accord with 19" rims... he has about 1 finger gap front and back. the ride is barely stiffer than stock (that's probably why it feels better than stock - feels newer) - it literally feels like a "newer" stock - but lower. just remember to go over dips slowly...

edit - here's his car.
