Before and After - Tein S. Tech's

I'm equally stoked about the results and feeling dumb for waiting so long.

Thanks; I'm absolutely stoked on it. Having thought about it more, I'm almost glad I waited this long because it's really breathed new life into the car for me. Almost feel like I'm driving something new. I think I'm going to keep it moving with a CAI next.

That's the perfect amount of drop on the 2007-2011 hatchback, without getting crazy about it.

Great looking car.

Oh, but crazy is fun! Having to think if you should get out and push your car over the next speed bump because you are afraid you might do real damage is a wonderfully entertaining thing.

Ugh, I kinda miss my car being on S Techs. Lowered but still such a comfortable ride lol. At my height it's been so long that I attempted going over a speedbump that I forgot how it feels like lmao.

I might be bias, but I agree. Thank you.

Was totally surprised at how comfortable it is. It actually hits man hole covers/cracks in the road/etc. softer than on oem springs. I didn't expect that. The tires rub a tiny bit if I go over uneven spots too quickly and in hard cornering, so I'm thinking about rolling the fenders. I didn't get much feedback on the thread I started asking about 205/40/17's and lowering with the Tein S. Tech's, but a few car enthusiast friends/family have suggested rolling the fenders as the fix.

Looks great!
It's amazing how a set of shorter springs make a car look different (better), almost as if it has a different body.

I always had problems with scraping the front bumper fascia when leaving parking lots on the S-Techs. MI springs lifted it up just enough to make it not scrape. This summer I'm also running 195/55R15s instead of 205/50R15s.

Yeah, it's not a big problem, but I want to find a solution for the slight rubbing.

Nice tasteful drop. Really like the properly closed fender gap. How's it ride now?

Thanks. It hits cracks in the road/lane reflectors/etc. significantly softer now, but I do get some wheel to fender rubbing when going over railroad tracks/gutter dips/uneven spots on the freeway too quickly, and in hard cornering.

That sounds about normal for your wheel/tire and suspension setup. Thought about going one wheel size smaller? That should help you get rid of the problem.

I have, actually. Rolling the fenders has also been suggested to me.
