    Tein H-Tech or S-Tech drop springs????

    Anyone try either one yet? Any thoughts or input?

    I had 2 Infiniti G35 Coupes in the past and I put 350Z H-Tech's on both. The 350z spring was stiffer and made the car ride great. I know some were saying the G35 rear springs were way to soft if there was anything in the trunk or even a passenger in the rear seat.

    Being that I am not sure of the OEM spring rates, I do not know where the Tein Springs stand compared to stock.

    Any input would be appreciated. I am just looking for drop springs, not at all interested in the expense of coil-overs. Its my daily driver car to get to work and back and have a little fun with now and then.

    S Techs def look nice because of the drop. It wont be as comfortable as the H Techs though.

    Personally I'd get the S Techs.

    So you think the less than .5" addition drop would be worth the stiffer ride?

    Just look up the specs. If you want comfort go for the HTechs. When you lower the car you want the springs to be stiffer to avoid rubbing and bottoming out in bumps. Stiffer could possibly be better for performance.. at least road feel lol.


    The S Techs will look more "flush" than the Htechs.
