Well I'm picking up a set of Tein FLEXs today.
They were tracked though, on a stock motor NB on competition tires (non-slicks).

Should I send em in to TeinUSA for inspection/overhaul anyway?
Just read through their site and its $125/corner.

Is there any way for me to "test" em to see if any require immediate attention/rebuild?

You should be fine if you don't see any leaks. You can always rebuild/revalve them later. By the way, Tein offers custom revalves on their shocks.

Yep, definitely plan on updating with my impressions.
If the billies don't sell I'll just hang on to them and probably get em rebuilt later in case I get tired of the flexes or don't like em.
