Let’s face it, car mods can get expensive really quickly but it helps that there can be cheaper options that work how you want them to. Today, we will be taking a look at Tein’s Flex Z Coilovers which come in at a very reasonable price point. We will be looking at what you get in the box, some tips and overall thoughts on this product.

About the Flex Z

Tein says they were able to make this Coilover suspension at such a low price point due to their new manufacture process that involves what they call a “sealed structure” process which basically means it cannot be disassembled. Think of how smartphones used to let you take the battery out but now they are sealed; this manufacturing strategy is often used to speed up production which results in lower prices for the consumer. These coilovers are built in Yokohama Japan.

Because of the affordable price point and a more straightforward installation than some other kits, this is a good option to look into if you are searching for Coilover springs to help with ride quality, performance or just want to look really cool.

What comes in the box

The Flex Z kit is considered a complete suspension kit to get you up and running. While this is a kit that makes setup easier than some other kits, there’s still quite a bit of research to get things properly fitted and installed. That is really just the nature of coilovers, but it will be all worth it in the end!

Just some tips

Without this becoming a how-to guide for coilovers, there are just a few things to keep in mind after you have adjusted your ride height to your liking. 

If you are looking to lower your car for performance gains then it is a really good idea to take it to a shop to get it aligned properly. When you are changing the height of a car that it was never designed to be at, you are throwing everything out of wack and can really mess with a lot of things such as tire wear and traction. It’s important to make sure everything is alright with the car after the initial ride height change.

Another thing, once you lower your vehicle it will gradually lower itself even more over time. For this reason, you should really give it the extra wiggle room and keep the ride height high enough so that one day you don’t find your tire scraping against the fender while going 60 on the freeway, yikes!

Worth it? Absolutely

With a price point that makes this attainable to more people with a high level of satisfaction around the web, this is a great option for getting into adjusting the ride height of your car. I always believe that accessibility is what gets more people to try new things which results in growth within the car modding community.
