Busted Rear Tein coilover


New Member
I was out driving my gtir today and noticed a banging noise when i was driving on back roads.

i took a quick look under the rear wheel arch and seen the coilover was covered in oil so i take it that the coilover is buggered or is it?

can the coilover be refurbed with new seals?

thanks for any help

Speak to pulsarbob as he know's somewhere other than tein to refurb them,I think you may find tien's prices and time they take a bit annoying

Im not sure what to do.

i was thinking of changing the coilovers for standard shocks and lowering springs because coilovers are a bit harsh for the roads i travel on(in ireland!)

so i mite sell them with that one rear coilover needing sorted


I have had bad experiences with TEIN UK and i would rather buy a new set than refurb. The guy, Chris i think, that i dealt with was a total moron and had poor customer service. Really got the impression he never had a clue what he was talking about.

If your local roads are rubbish then i would go shocks and springs for sure.

i found that aswell with tein uk, not exactly switched on,

didnt know what a nissan stagea was!!

while we're at it, stay away from leda aswell!! terrible quality of refurb and customer service was non existant, (aka harvey bailey engineering)
