mines actually settled alittle but it was just ridiculous when i installed them. i mean the s-techs are longer than the racing beat so you gotta expect it i guess.

How bout a cold one
Last week was an AWR front motor mount. This weekend will be new Tein S-techs.

For those who have cut the rears, have you noticed any difference in ride/performance? I was told once a spring is cut they go to shit (the back end gets all bouncy), ture or not true?

i wouldnt cut the springs. theres a reason that they are designed the way they are, and i think tein has been around long enough to know what theyre doing. so if you really want to make your car look just a little bit better, but sacrifice the engineering that went into your springs, then go ahead.

my thoughts exactly. It reminds me of something a ricer would do, but to each his own in the modding world.

I was concerned with this as well. So far, absolutely no bouncing at all. I took a full coil out of the each of the rears. The car handles about as well as it ever did. Not too much wrong with the stock Racing Beats, to tell you the truth, just too tall, IMO. I think people run into trouble when they take TOO much out. Ricer, maybe, but I'm the one who had a ginormous GReddy sticker on the side of mine and liked it.

i believe they were NGK ZFR6F-11

0.44 gap

The minute i started the car I could tell they were better. I just hit 30,000 miles and needed some new spark plugs

interesting, I recently decided to go with the ngk zfr7f-11, gapped to .30 being as though they are one stage colder and I'm running a higher boost.
I made the switch around 25,XXX mi.
