Installed mine this past saturday, still need to set the height in the front. Initial impression is they are stiffer than I thought they would be, not a bad thing though. I was worried they would be too soft with 6k spring.

Like I mentioned in PMs with @CSG Mike, I am currently running them on my 2016 with the slightly stiffer 2017 OEM rear sway. -3F -2R degrees camber, zero toe all around, with rake of 10mm extra in rear ride height due to lack of rear adjustable arms at the moment.

Drove the car at AutoX and found the car to be wonderful to rotate on throttle, with a very nice threshold before breaking loose the rears on 245/40/17 GT Radial SX2s

After tweaking for four runs, I ended up at 5 clicks from full stiff front, 7 clicks rear

A higher ride height will reduce harshness with the CSG Flex A. Also, you can adjust the damping settings for comfort.

Anyone have an idea on the “default” height set at the Tein factory? Have yet to get them on (tomorrow), just curious.

They are "close" out of the box, but you'll want to take measurements and adjust however you want it.

Got everything together and aligned today. Of course mother nature rained (literally) on the parade.

Street driving with all seasons and suggested dampening settings is very impressive. Very smooth and not overly harsh. I'm coming from converted B14s(linear rates, had not revalved yet) and those were fairly harsh with the same rates as the CSG Flexes.

Hoping for warmer, dryer, weather to test these out a little more.So far, so good.

Hey Kenny- Looks like you might have to wait a while for dry conditions
I'd love to see your car sometime in better weather and possibly get a ride, I'm in the neighborhood!

Updated the original post with my initial reviews of street driving. The next track day is April 8th and I will post a track review afterwards!

It looks like another flood coming. lol
Maybe it'll stay warm enough so I can mount my summer tires.
Definitely welcome for a ride whenever things align out!
