Here's my 06 with Tein H-techs on them. They are awesome and ride great.




And this is a quote from the Tein website:
"High.Tech springs are designed for those seeking a slightly lowered stance while maintaining high ride quality at a reasonable price. Most vehicles will attain a 1.2 inch drop for a more attractive appearance, added performance, and excellent comfort. "

Thanks Feezor for the picS looks like a nice height and Tein's are my perferred choice

so those are the H tecks that are roughly a 1'' drop in the front and 0.4'' in the back

Not sure on the exact drop. What I do know is if your looking to go any lower than these (which I assume not) then I believe you will need coil-overs. The H-techs will work with the stock shock dampener where as most people consider the S-techs too low and you will need new struts sooner rather than later

Don't have any exact height specs, but there is one finger gap in the front and none in the rear. I am running Megan Racing coils with 235/45/17 tires...







I need some new pics, though, as the car has had a few additions...
