Tein lowering springs [NA compatability?]
Hey all, quick question [i hope]
14" 12.5 lb alloy wheels [brand new tread]
So, I wanted to move to 15" but suspension was before rims.. I am on a budget..
Anyhow, I was browsing my local craigslist for miata parts, and found a partout about 5minutes away from my house. A guy has a '99 miata he is parting out, and there were a few items that interested may, specifically TEIN S.Tech lowering springs. They're brand new in the package, all 4 included, but I'd still need to pickup aftermarket struts before putting on [doing all at once, so was the plan]. I was looking into KYB and billistein..
THEN, I realized a typo, and he didn't have a 1990, he had a 1999 [Typo, since we've only communicated via text and email, not verbally].
Can anyone tell me if his brand new tein s.tech springs will be compatable with my car? He offered me a good price on them, and being so close, I'd like to jump on this even if I don't have another 400 to blow on struts at the moment, I know for a fact, I'll have that money in two weeks.
The sealed package says:
PART No. SKM44-AUB00
"Tein S.Tech lowering springs is an excellent step towards suspension tuning. The Tein S.Tech springs offer approximately a 1.5 in. drop for a more stylish appearence and increased road holding capability, designed to be used with OEM or aftermarket high preformance replacement shocks. Each application is road tested in the USA for proper balance between preformance and comfort: The Coil springs are produced with Vanadium (SAE9254V), which is durable, lightweight, and designed to retain more spring stroke."
Thanks for any help guys,
