RX8 Tein Basic Coilovers on NC

Postby o2cls » Mon Oct 18, 2010 8:09 pm

Just curious as to what some of you gear heads think of that set up.

Spring rates are 450F and 340R. The front coilover is not my concern as it is the same length as the NC coilovers, the rear Im slightly worried about. Since the rears are longer, by a margin, will I still be able to lower the car 1.5-2" int he back? Tein indicates that the lowering range is "-0.16" to -1.34," That doesn't mean much to me...Brian, can you shed some light on this?

I'm just worried that if the rear is longer, it wont lower quite enough. I will be running 17x8 with a 335/40.

Thanks in advance.

Hmmm, have not used the Tein RX8 setup in the MX5. I know it will bolt in...but without playing with it I can't tell you what your useful range will be. It should work just fine from my experience using RX8 JIC and Motons but can't say for sure until I try it.

Ill shoot some emails out tomorrow regarding returns if it doesn't work.

For +/- $750 it may be worth it.

I guess those rates are still lower or near the upper range of JIC/Ohlins, right? I hope the ride isn't crap...lol.
