lol, unfortunetly ive been blessed with the company of plenty of jdm junkies up at work, the consensus is that tein is not bueno niether is tokico, supposedly they arent as good as many other brands, but hey, its better then stock and who wouldnt mind free/discount products?
I happen to like H&R and Nuespeed. just from the euro cars ive seen personaly. TODA is popular with the honda guys at work, one guy has an s2000 with extensive mods and it has a toda suspension makeover
tein makes some good electronically controlled shocks, i read an article about FF drifting witha civic, and he has TEIN's all around because of the control system, he can control damping right from the drivers seat with out stopping or anything
