Exclamation Gsr basic Tein coilover help

Any that can help thanks.
I have a 95 integra gsr lowered on tein basic coilivers. The ride is really bumpy when i go over bumps I tried adjusting them but it's not as simple. I was told to losen the top of the springs to adjust it from stiff to lose but I don't know what to adjust exactly. They can adjust by going up or down using a tool it comes with but would that fix the bumpy ride problem? Anyone That can help would be great thanks.

Default

the problem with tein basic coilovers is that you cannot adjust the shock rate, only the spring compression.

if it's too bumpy then all you can really do is move the spring perch down the shaft using the tein C spanner. this will make it softer. you can adjust the perch down as low as possible but always ensure the spring is not moving freely and touching both ends.

yes you can

TEIN is over rated unless you go to the FLEX their basic damper is overshadowed by Sunk2 Pro S Ver II coilovers for the same price you get height and damper control, and i feel tein is a tad soft until you get to the flex damper

yes it would. how much lower it goes depends on how compressed the spring is currently.

a friend of mine had tein basics in his Z and i installed them for him and set them up. IIRC there is no shock adjustment at the top of the strut tower but if the teg version has it, just turn it anti clockwise for the softest setting.

if it doesn't have it, all you can do is lower the spring perch and return the spring to its natural length for the softest ride.

The Tein Basic damper does not have adjustable rebound or compression damping. The only thing adjustable with the Basic coilover is, ride height...which unfortunately reduces strut compression travel when lowering.
