Mono Sport Coilovers 2008-2014 Mitsubishi Evo X.
Part number: TEI1 GSE18-71SS4 – Tein Monosport Coilovers – Evo X
When shopping for coilovers, the typical consumer for most sport compact applications have one objective. And that’s basically how low can I go. Your basic coilovers feature a strut, spring, and a locking lower perch for the spring to rest on. The lower the perch, the lower the car will go. Typically springs will be stiffer to accommodate the ride height, but overall the ride comfort can be compromised, and losing pre-load will effect the ride quality.
If you’re okay with that and just want a more aggressive look, then basic coilovers will get you by. But there are other variables to consider. More importantly, how is your driving style?
When searching online forums, there’s an abundance of track photos. You can’t help to notice how aggressive that car looks entering, or exiting the corners. You notice how nice those aggressive wheels are tucked in the fenders. Now that the objective is at hand, you want your car to do all these wonderful things the internet car is doing.
Tein has been a pioneer developer in the suspension game for a long time. And the Mitsubishi Evolution has been one of the best handling legendary all wheel drive platforms to come out of Japan. You got yourself an Evo and what now? Aside from daily driving duties, some may partake in weekend grassroots activities. There are autocross events, track days, or you might just live near one of the best driving canyons in your town. Either way, if suspension was an element on your list of modifications, more than likely Tein has been a brand within your decision.
