Tein Flex Z Coilover Suspension Kit fits Subaru Impreza GC8 (92-00). Tein Flex Z's are the spiritual successor the successful Street Flex model - a model made for street use with a stiffer, sportier feel.Teins are made in Yokohama Japan to very stringent criteria, resulting in an reliable and effective product that somehow manages to come in cheaper than many of its competitors. Fitment: Impreza GC8 (Inc WRX and STi), GC6 (Wagon). Max Ride Height Drop (mm). Low Friction Twin Tube Design. Considering the use of larger tires/wheels and the lowered ride height, FLEX Z uses twin-tube system, in pursuit of ride comfort on streets. In order to maintain the ride quality on streets with rough spots here and there, a shock absorber has to have sufficient stroke, be low-frictional and move smoothly. As an oil chamber and a gas chamber are not arranged serially in a twin-tube system, it is easy to secure enough stroke. Also, low gas pressure keeps friction low. Its smooth stroke movement makes it possible to follow rough and bumpy road surfaces quite well, offering supple ride at low speed and stable ride at high speed.
Damping Force Adjustable to Change Ride to Desired Settings! FLEX Z has ever-popular 16-level damping force adjustment comp. /rebound together feature with the use of needle valve. Use of well-reputed "ADVANCE Needle" at the needle valve for oil flow control secures sufficient damping force adjustable range. FLEX Z kit includes upper mounts exclusively designed for each vehicle model; either reinforced rubber mounts or pillow ball mounts.
Pillow ball upper mounts for front strut suspensions have camber adjustment feature. Some vehicle models use OE mounts. After many years of research and study, TEIN has developed optimally-shaped dust boot made of most suitable material. Elastic & highly-durable dust boot effectively prevents damages to the piston rod and foreign substances from getting inside the shock absorber. Some vehicle models use OE dust boots.
Final assembly of shock absorbers is done in the clean room, which is almost equivalent to operating room. Room pressure is kept under control to shut out dust & dirt and all workers entering the room must take air shower, to make sure all the assembly work is done in completely clean air, in order to maintain higher level of accuracy and reliability. Upper mounts and lower brackets are coated with rich TEIN green powder paint.
This powder paint has high coating film strength, is highly durable yet is low-pollution due to non-use of harmful solvent. After the shot blasting pre-treatment, the patented "2-layer/1-bake" treatment using anti-rust powder paint is applied for superior durability and high corrosion resistance.On shell case, TEIN's self-developed one-of-a-kind "ZT Coating" is applied, for tougher protection against chipping, often caused by bounced pebbles, and rust. FLEX Z has adopted the new wrought aluminum spring seats and low-friction hard-resin thrust washers. These effectively reduces the friction with springs, caused during ride height adjustment, and makes it easier to adjust the ride height with pre-load on the springs. Shell cases are treated with "ZT Coating", a superlow-friction fluorine resin coating, which is tightly baked onto the surface in-house.
This special coating provides superior protection against rust and high lubricity, for keeping a smooth adjustment for a long period. FLEX Z kit includes one-of-a-kind user-friendly ride height adjusting wrench. It has a 12.7mm (1/2in) sq. Hole for attaching spinner handle and/or torque wrench for tightening at high torque.
Included springs are made of high-tensile steel SAE9254 (tensile strength 200kgf/mm2 or over) and cold formed for excellent resistance to sagging and for superior quality stability. Surface is powder coated for superb protection against chipping & peeling, for high durability and for superior anti-corrosion performance. High-quality spring can be used under various conditions without any worry. The most suitable shape of spring (straight or barrel-shaped) is determined for each vehicle model, to provide wide ride height adjustable range and to secure sufficient stroke without compromising ride comfort. Specially-formulated high-spec oil exhibits stable viscosity characteristics at any temperature; from low to high, to allow shock absorbers to stroke smoothly and to generate damping force stably under various conditions.
The oil has superior anti-foaming characteristics hence the bubble cavitation and/or thermal degradation hardly occurs, making it even suitable for tough sport driving. The oil also does not deteriorate much with age, making it possible to maintain and deliver superior performance for the long term. Ride Height adjustable via spring seat. 16-Way Damping Adjustable (simultaneous compression and rebound).
Non-welded ZT coated adjustment tube. Pillowball Upper Mounts for increased steering feedback. 1-piece aluminium spring seat with delrin thrust washer.We send 98% of our items using a tracked and signed service unless the value/availability of the product means that we can quickly and easily send a replacement to you.
