TEIN Flex Z Coilovers are the latest in TEIN's generation of high end coilovers. The difference with Flex Z is that you are getting a coilover that would normally cost almost double the price. The new manufacturing systems that TEIN has put in place with this line of coilovers has allowed for them to produce these coilovers at a lower price and pass that savings on to you. Quality and performance remains top of it's class and TEIN builds these Flex Z coilovers with the highest quality standards in Yokohama, Japan making these a true Japanese JDM coilover system.
TEIN Flex Z has an awesome twin tube internal system that gives you one of the best street rides we've seen. In addition, the full length height adjustment system enables you to lower the car to the max allowable level and still maintain the same shock travel and ride quality.
TEIN Flex Z is 16 way dampening adjustable (compression and rebound together) so you can made the ride stiffer or softer depending on what you are looking to achieve. For example, you can set the dampening to a low setting for when you are daily driving the car and set it up to a stiffer/firmer setting for track or competition use.
These coilovers include upper mounts for each installation. Each kit comes with either reinforced rubber upper mount or a pillowball upper mount. Pillow ball upper mounts are for strut suspensions and include front camber adjustment.
TEIN takes pride in their products and each one is built to be the best quality possible. TEIN coats each Flex Z with "ZT Coating" that prevents rust and has multiple layers to ensure the best finish.

Can I set my ride height to the stock height with these or will it be lowered no matter what? Eventually I would like to lower my car but for now I'd like to just get coilovers, my z32's suspension is factory still and I just picked this thing up so I'm trying not to break the bank right away
- Justin Orzel
According to Tein, these can go almost an inch higher than stock in the front and rear, so it should be possible to set these to factory ride height.
Is the ride adjustment a mechanical adjustment on the shock itself so that they are adjusted individually? Or is it an electronic adjustment similar to the OEM system on the twin turbo coupes?
Hey Gregory, the dampening adjustment (ride stiffness) is done by turning knobs on the top of the coilovers, so they are normally adjusted manually, one at a time. Most people cut holes in the rear rear shock tower finisher pieces to access them, or just set them and forget them.
Tein is unique in that they support their EDFC system, which allows for electronically-controlled adjustments made in the cabin. So while it wouldn't work with the factory system, that functionality actually can be replicated w
Are these adjustable back and forth from the mount?
- stephen lucas
The Z32 doesn't use Camber Plates, it has a upper control arm. Thus, you would need an adjustable upper control arm to correct camber if you plan on lowering the vehicle.

I have used these coilovers in almost every car I've had. They still remain one of the best bang for your buck and install easily. They last for a very long time and look great on the car.
very good complete poduit, easy to adjust!
