    Details

    The Tein Street Advance Z is a kit evolved from the Street Advance (SA) and Super Street (SS) kit, which itself was an evolved design from an earlier iteration. With it, they widened the dampening range to appeal to a broader audience, added corrosion resistance to the threaded section, and improved the bump-stops to improve longevity. Tein continues to develop their product line which is what makes them a leader in today's very crowded coil-over damper market segment. The only major design change with the SAZ over the SA is that the SAZ is not a re-buildable or servicable damper tube. Meaning, you can't send it in to Tein for custom valving or repair. Failures with Tein dampers are extremely rare and in the event a damper should fail or be damaged, replacement tubes are available at a reasonable cost.

    The Tein Street Advance Z Damper kit is the bread-and-butter of the Tein product line. Most users looking for a spring and damper combination that offers both a compliant street ride as well as enhanced sporting for improved handling will find that the Tein Street Advance Z (often referred to as the SAZ) checks all the right boxes. Combined with springs that are conservatively chosen for increased cornering loads and management of weight transition, and adjustable damper tuning centered around tigher high-speed and moderate low-speed damping, you have a suspension system designed for the masses.

    The lowering range for this single-length adjustable kit is moderate as well, being adjusted with threaded collars and spring seats. One should expect a drop that is noticeable and gives the car an aggressive stance. When adjusted within it's recommended range of 1.5" to 2.25" lower than stock, the daily usability of the car with sufficient ground clearance for most obstacles is excellent. If someone is looking for a suspension that will totally-slam their car then look to a kit with full-length adjustment, such as the STREET FLEX SF . Contact Heeltoe for consultation if you are not sure!

    More on the adjustment of the height...Tein offers some of the industry's finest spring seats and locking collars. They feature flanges that prevent the wrenches from falling off the collars as you are turning. And those wrenches...some of the longest in the industry, and an ergonomic shape, which allow users get the most torque for easier adjustments. Lastly, a thin, delrin spring seat washer enables the lower seat to spin freely against the bottom of the spring. (Unless you've handled a suspension kit like this before, some of the features just mentioned may not mean much...but we promise, you'll appreciate that Tein thinks as much about the tuner as they do the tuning.)

    To ensure that people are able to achieve the ride and handling balance that is to their liking, Tein provides dampening valve adjustment. 16 distinct settings (or up to 32 with EDFC installation) allow user to dial in click-perfect balance. These settings can throw off the handling of a car, but Tein's limited range and high-quality "click assemblies" take some of the pain ouf of adjusting. The clicks mostly control the rebound rate, which when slowed down enables a higher level of performance at the expense of slower response over bumps (and a little rougher ride).

    Q:

    I have a question on OEM Upper Mount Kit for tein on 2013 accord, whats the benefits on using the OEM upper mount kit for the tein?? it going on a 2013 accord, it will never see a racing track, and will be a daily driver. its for my girlfriends accord, just want to drop it and add rims. will it make the coilovers last longer in the long run? do i really need the upper mount kit??

    A:

    Many suspension kits will require you to remove the upper mounts from the factory shock/strut assemblies in order to install them on the new damper parts. The factory parts are good and last a long time, but having to take apart the stock assemblies adds complication and difficulty to your install.

    The kit we offer here as an option to you is a replacement set of upper mounts which can be assembled on the new suspension without taking the stock assemblies apart. There is no performance advantage in replacing them, nor any detriment to ride or reliability. It is just a new set of components that you'd be using anyway.

    Q:

    Is the upper mount kit required for installation?

    A:

    You are required to install an upper mount on the Teins to install them. You CAN reuse the stock upper mounts, and so you don't need to buy new ones. However note that removing the upper mounts from the factory damper package is a bit of a challenge and can be the hardest part of the job. So, we offer new mounts with optional assembly for your convenience!

    Q:

    If I were to buy TEIN SA with oem top mounts and EDFC, would you guys prep the coilovers for the EDFC mounts? I'm talking about the original hex bolt, click assembly and cap that need to be swapped out.

    A:

    Yes! Our "With Assembly" or "With Installation" options include EDFC motor installation onto the damper shafts.

    Q:

    Do any of the edfc kits include the motors?

    A:

    To get an EDFC on the car you will be getting a motor kit as well as a controller kit of your choice. Choose between the EDFC II, EDFC Active, or EDFC Active Pro.

    Q:

    just to clarify, this kit does include both front and rear correct?

    A:

    Correct, this kit comes with dampers and springs for all four corners.

    Q:

    If I opt for adding the OEM Upper Mount Kit and assembly, will they be ready for install on arrival? It's my understanding that the bump stop, dust cover, and the rubber inlay from the upper spring seat will all need to be trimmed before the install to avoid clunking (or fitment issues) and ensure a proper install. I was just wondering if that is included in the assembly option.

    Many thanks!

    A:

    Yes, correct. We supply all these parts, do the trimming, assembly, and adjustment before shipping. When the kit arrives it is ready to be installed in the car without the assembly headaches.

    Q:

    Just to clarify you guys offer assembly with the oem top mounts without the EDFC when selecting w/ assembly option, correct?

    A:

    Yes, this is correct. You will receive the kit with upper mounts on, and motors installed, ready to be installed in the car.

    Q:

    What is the standard drop that these coils will come with when you guys assemble them with OEM top hats?

    A:

    This kit lowers the car between 1.5"-2.0" when adjusted properly. You have some range to work with so you can get the desired height. We set the kits to Tein's recommended pre-set recommendations which can vary depending on the Accord model and engine you have.

    Q:

    For Daily driving about 100miles back and forth which would be better? SA or Basis? also if i'm lowering it only 1in would I need a camber kit?

    A:

    The Street Advance has a knob at the top of the shock shaft that allows you to quickly adjust the ride firmness to your liking. The Street Basis/Basic has no such knob at the top for tuning the ride, and is set at a fixed position determined by Tein. That is the only difference between the kits.

    So, if tuning the ride over various surfaces is important to you, we recommend the Street Advance. It also tends to be the most popular.

    For a 1-1.5" drop you can skip the camber kit, but note that these Tein kits will lower more than 1" at their better settings.

    Q:Quote:
    "For a 1-1.5" drop you can skip the camber kit, but note that these Tein kits will lower more than 1" at their better settings."

    I understand I can skip the camber kit for a 1" drop. When you say "better settings", do you mean to say that the Tien will better perform with bigger drops?

    A:

    What we mean is, this kit is designed to lower the car more like 1.5-2.0" and in that range the car will look, ride, and perform its best. While you can raise the car to a 1.0" drop, the spring will be compressed and the car will feel rather "stiff-kneed." We don't recommend it.

    Q:

    Tein recommends the coils to be set at 1.5F and 0.8R would i still need camber kits? Also thank you for all the help it's really helping me dial in which suspension i'm looking for !

    A:

    The coilovers are adjustable so if this is where the Tein baseline setting is you have about 1/2" to 3/4" up and down to play with to get the car dialed in just right.

    Q:

    Will this Teins SA fit a 2016 Honda Accord v6 sedan touring edition?

    A:

    Yes, this system will fit all 9th generation Accord models.
