Man, they did. Thats weird. Everything went up on price for the Teins because the SS's used to be $850, and now it's $950. I'm sure glad I bought mine already.

That's a crazy increase. Doesn't make much sense TEIN are going up in price while Koni shocks are coming down. Wierd

here they are for $652 and change http://www.speedaction.net/suspensio...ver-honda.html I'm going to bet that if one place is going up they all will over the next couple of weeks. Specailly if they are coming from over sea somewhere, as the dam dollar continues to drop everything is going to get more expensive. If I see anywhere else for cheap I'll be sure to post back with the link. Peace
