TEIN Street Advance Z & Street Basis Z Coilovers

Just noticed TEIN has made their Street Basis Z and Street Advance Z coilover line available. Apparently, they are the same as the normal line, except they are made in a factory in China and they are self-contained units that cannot be rebuilt. This leads to a lower cost. Who'll be guinea pigs! Might consider this over rebuilding my current SB if the time comes with the cost being really low. Not sure about the China factory part though. =P

Please forgive me as I am clueless when it comes to suspension, but why would one buy these as opposed to the "normal line" other than price?

I am not sure what is meant when it says they cannot be rebuilt.

Again, I know absolutely nothing about coils/springs/lowering so be kind. I'm just curious.

You just said it. It's because of cost. By capitalizing on the reputation of the SA, they simply market the new self-contained Z series, cheaper and sell more units. I'm guessing there's probably a higher profit margin with the Z series too which is why they are discontinuing the SA. Whatever SA units you see on the web are remaining inventory from what I hear.

The SA can be rebuilt if something wears out. When that time comes, you will either buy a replacement part and DIY or send it in for a rebuild. With the Z series, it cannot be serviced and you just have to buy a new unit.

Personally, I have been looking at the BCs because they exhibit a lot more quality than Tiens. I want independent height adjustment without compromising the ride.

Interested to hear how you came to this conclusion on quality with regards to our 9th gen. How do they specifically exhibit a lot more quality than Teins?

The SA is a great coilover. Sucks to hear the quality might suffer just to make a few bucks.

I'd love to hear justification of this basis as well.

I'm bummed to see TEIN shift production to a cheaper version of coil, but it's worth noting that they've been producing in China for years.

I recall reading an article about how they mirrored their Japanese plant somewhere in China and began producing there as well. It's more than likely that all of these lower end models are produced in the Chinese plant to capitalize on margins.

It sucks, but it is what it is. I strongly oppose Chinese products, but I'd rather buy something that began in Japan and still has ties to Japan than something that was born and raised in China.

I am curious to see what the quality of this new lineup is like. When (IF) my SAs give out, maybe I'll opt to replace them with this new model instead, just for educational purposes.

Too bad Bilstein has no intentions of supplying Accord owners with a product.

hmm.. interesting regarding TEIN has always been my go to product. other than H&R, but sucks no coilovers from that company. I would be kinda interested in quality as well. Not saying that Chinese made products are less superior. But some cost cutting does tend to lead to quality issues. I seem to notice that as well with some current Honda Fits. whereas some are made in Japan and some in Mexico. would like to hear some feedback on those who purchase the Tein Z series..
