The “best” spring for the car has already been designed and based on everything anyone says, Teins are ace numbuh one OK.

Something to consider, however, if you want to nit, is if you purchase the Bilstein B12 ProKit (Bilstein shocks/Eibach ProKit springs), do know that the two products were jointly co-developed and “tuned” to one another by the two companies. Does it make ’em better than Tein? Can’t rightly say. But these are HUGE reputation companies so you makes up youse own minds on that.

Personally, yes, I had the B12 setup and it was, in a word, amazing. I’m on Konis with the ProKit springs now (long story about giving the ‘Steins away) and I’m very happy with this setup too; but ride wise, Bilstein FTW.

Nothing wrong with Tein springs. I’ve never run them but local Z expert Rob Fuller at ZCG likes them and sells them (along with the others) and seems to like them.Honestly, there isn’t huge amount of new science that goes into suspension coil springs (not that I’m undermining the engineering of spring design, which I’m not) but note the word “new”.
