New – Tein Street Basis

Thursday June 23, 2011

Tein’s brand new line of coilovers just landed in the United States earlier this month. The “Street Basis” is being introduced as the new entry level coilover to Tein’s adjustable suspension line up. This spot is currently held by the long time popular “Tein BASIC” coilovers. All new entry level coilover applications will be developed as the Street Basis but some of the Basic series kits will still remain in production. The most popular applications from the Basic series are being re-developed and released as the Street Basis but the slower selling less popular applications will remain in production as the Basic series, at least for now. As Tein re-develops the popular applications they’ll discontinue the corresponding application within the Basic series.

Street Basis holds many of the same features as the Basic line with a handful of slight improvements. New non-welded shell case structure design (making for a cleaner anti-rust treatment on the bottom of the shell case), new black “ZT” fluorine resin coating on the adjustment threads as opposed to older chrome plating found on the basic series (making for smother height adjustment), and some component material changes that actually ends up bringing the overall cost lower then the Basic Coilover pricing.
