Honestly, I'd be perfectly happy with it if I didn't have this problem.

I will definitely report back once I get it figured out.

Was it the bump stops?

So itís been a while. The noise is still there - definitely not the bump stops. Been to a couple different mechanics and they checked the install and all seems to be in order (though they said theyíve never heard anything like it).

I went back through the installation instructions for the umpteenth time and I may have found soumething. The install calls for reusing the coil spring insulators and I donít see the insulator at the top. This is the next thing Iíll be checking.

SOLVED

Finally solved!

Not the insulators.

It turned out to be that the rear dampers were not properly torqued down at the top, causing the metallic clanging sound. Driving it back from the shop was night and day; all the rough patches in the road where I was automatically bracing for a hit, were .... uneventful (hallelujah!), just what I was hoping for from the start. Without having to worry about the bumps, I was able to push it a bit on the way home on some sweeping on/off ramps and some local winding roads (for Queens) & itís like driving a go cart. Loving this setup.

1 week update:

Still totally quiet, no noise at all. I think I can finally start to give a true impression of this suspension. I have the settings set to 6 down from max firm and while its firm, it doesn't beat you up, so its still relatively comfortable, but turns flat. The overall feel of the car does not say "econo-box" when you're behind the wheel, because everything just feels tighter now; the steering feels better - you feel connected and it just feels like it goes where you point it and it stays composed at all times. The Teins made the car better and a lot more fun to drive.

I say go for it, just make sure that the install is done right. I spoke to Tein and they said the Street series are the only models they get calls about because they require the re-use of existing parts and installs not following the directions are usually the culprit. I had 3 guys working on my car at the same time during the original install and apparently one of them was not a superstar The adjustability factor is a big plus; you have a lot of options in dialing in your comfort level.
