    A New Formula and a New Structure!

    Making an Incredibly Low Price a Reality

    'Repairable' Unit of Parts 'Sealed Structure' Fixed Unit

    About the Sealed Structure

    The top end of the shell pipe is narrowed, oil and gas are injected, and the whole unit is sealed by crimping the metal.

    This new approach massively shortens the production process. As a result, we have succeeded in vastly cutting production cost.

    Partial Production Process of STREET ADVANCE Z and STREET BASIS Z

    Partial Production Process

    Thread-Type Adjustment

    The ride height can be adjusted by moving the lower spring seat up or down. 
    Characteristic of this system are its simple structure and ease of use.

    Ride height adjustment by moving lower spring seat


    Compared to the regular mono-tube system, twin-tube attains longer stroke with a smaller repulsive force, resulting in high ride comfort.

    Mono-Tube / Twin-Tube

    Roads may have all sorts of surface conditions. This calls for shock absorbers with ample stroke, that operate smoothly.

    Thanks to this unique characteristic, you can negotiate gaps and bumps steadily on rough roads, meaning a smooth ride at low speed and stability at high speed.

    Uses OE Mounts

    STREET ADVANCE Z and STREET BASIS Z use the vehicle's original upper mounts (not included in our product kit).

    OE Mounts

    Durable & Reliable

    Optimal Dust Boot

    Dust Boot

    Thanks to its smooth compression and high durability, the dust boot guards the piston rod from damage, and keeps foreign material out of the shock absorber. 
    (Some vehicles use their OE dust boots)

    No-Sag Spring


    Cold formed with SAE9254 steel (minimum tensile strength 200 kgf/mm2), our springs are outstandingly sag-proof and boast extreme resiliency.

    Superior rust protection is ensured with a highly durable powder coating that does not peel or flake. Our high-quality springs can be used without worries, in any conditions.

    High-Performance Damper Oil

    Damper Oil

    Since TEIN's damper oil maintains a stable viscosity in a broad temperature range, it sustains smooth stroke and reliable damping force in a variety of circumstances.

    Due to excellent anti-foaming properties, it's resistant to cavitation (bubble forming). Since it withstands high heat too, it's suitable for intense sport driving as well.

    Furthermore, the damper oil keeps up its superior performance long-term, because it's resistant to deterioration over time.


    TEIN-Green Powder Coating

    Powder Coating

    A bright TEIN-green powder paint is used on the shock absorber's shell case. Our powder coating technique produces an extremely strong and durable barrier. No harmful organic solvents are used, for minimal pollution.

    Superior durability and corrosion resistance are achieved by TEIN's patented 2-Layer, 1-Bake powder coating method, which uses 2 layers of anti-rust paint on a blasted surface. 
    (Japanese patent number 4347712)

    Special Surface Treatment 'ZT Coating'

    ZT Coating

    Our unique ZT Coating surface treatment on the ride height adjustment thread is abrasion resistant against gravel/debris, and further enhances its corrosion resistance.

    With zero claims for stuck parts due to rust in 500,000 shock absorbers, TEIN shock absorbers are amazingly rustproof. We're confident of customer satisfaction even in coastal areas or regions with heavy snowfall.

    >>We're confident of TEIN shock absorbers' surface treatment!


    Damping Force Adjustable


    Modify ride comfort and handling according to your preference, changing the properties of the shock absorber with the adjustment dial.

    Adjust to Suit Driving Conditions

    The above are examples; actual settings vary according to the vehicle's circumstances.

    EDFC Compatible


    The EDFC Series offer easy damping force adjustment from the driver's seat.*

    EDFC Series Lineup



    The Finest in Electronic Damping Force Controllers

    Individual Wheel Control Cornering-Reactive

    Accel/Deceleration-Reactive Speed-Reactive

    Wireless Control



    Electronic Damping Force Controller, 
    Featuring Auto-Adjustment


    Speed-Reactive (Optional Extra) Wireless Control




    With EDFC (Electronic Damping Force Controller) series installed, damping force can be controlled from the cockpit with ease. Stepping motors attached in place of adjustment knobs control the damping force quickly and accurately.
    Use of EDFC turns 16-level adjustment into finer 32-level or 64-level adjustment mode (64-level only available with EDFC ACTIVE / EDFC ACTIVE PRO), to provide the optimum performance by fully utilising the damping force adjustable range drastically widened by the use of "ADVANCE Needle"
