So I had been wanting to lower my tsx for a while I couldn't take the stock ride height. I didn't want coilovers I wanted to maintain a close to stock ride but go as low as I could. So I ended up settling on Tein S tech's and kyb's. I got a good deal on a set on here with roughly 3k. I finally got around to putting them in after roughly 2 months of having them. The install was rather straight up not much different then any other car I've owned. Once putting the car on the ground I was very happy with the ride height. Just low enough to look right but not to low to bottom out every where as I have the worlds largest speed bump on my street. I watch my neighbor with his slammed Evo MR drag over it all the time. As for the ride im very pleased with it, it rides just a hair stiffer then stock doesn't have the "bounce" as everyone calls it. Highway driving was very nice and smooth at around 75-80mph much more stable. I haven't really taken it threw turns hard yet as I had a bunch of tools in my car driving it home. I also installed a ct engeering RSB. All I had was my cell phone so I snapped some quick pics.

It's 1.7 front and 1.3 rear. I honestly think its a tad lower then that when installed. By my measurements it's roughly 1.9 front and 1.5 rear.

Congrats on the S-Techs. I love mine.


I didn't need a camber kit when I did my drop. Ask the person that does your alignment. They will be able to give you their opinion. I was told by my alignment guy that it is really close but not needed. After ~40k miles I have only slight camber wear BUT I also carry ~200lbs worth of stereo.

I manage a parts store and I had a good customer throw it on his alignment rack this afternoon. The rear camber was -1.8 drivers and -1.7 passenger. It's close to needing a rear camber kit but it's within spec. If I do decide to do coilovers which I probably won't with having a kid on the way Id get a camber kit. The reason I went with kyb over koni is because I sell them at work and can warranty them for life. I can't wait to get the rest of my goodies in. This car needs roughly 20-30 more hp. But then again I'm used to over 500whp on my last daily driver.

I sell the camber kits at work worst case is I drive a few thousand miles notice tire wear and put a kit in. This is the last summer on these tires anyways.
