GSA50-1USS2 Tein Street Basis Coilovers - Honda Accord '03-'07 ALL | eBay

not less then but its not that much different, and unless your going to be playing with the setting every week your not going to need 12-33 adjustable. most people just set it and forget it unless its a track day. Pay a little more to get a better product and peace of mind. Cost more then the first one less then the second one.

Well it still steel construction vs alluminium. The other thing is the C8 is 1250$ retail price and if it`s comming from the same factory i can`t see why they will be a bad choice. I didint know they where comming from the same factory. Im using my Accord twice a week to do lapping, i might not need that much ajustement because im not a pro but i think i will try them at this price and the fact they are alluminium construction is a big +. Thank you

Keep in mind if they break there is no warranty. If they break you are SOL.

And take the "they all come from the same factory" thing with a grain of salt...

You guys are totally running with the wrong interpretation of what was said lol. Those are not from Tein's factory. What A8TunedK24 was saying was that these are likely the same as any other eBay brand aluminum Taiwanese coilover.

Teins are likely assembled in Japan but I don't think their lower end coilovers are manufactured there. I think they get certain parts from other areas of Asia and assemble it all in house. Lots of manufacturers do this though, even reputable ones.

Steel coilovers are nice and durable though. IMO, Tein is a solid choice for the budget conscious.
