    The low down
    The Tecna coilover was engineered from scratch to be the best riding coilover in this price range and still allow lowered ride heights. We think of these as daily driver shocks, not race shocks. If you are focused on the ultimate handling in a competition type environment, we recommend stepping up to Xidas with much higher spring rates. Tecna damping range is roughly equivalent to the softest 35% of Xida range. Perfect for a daily driver, canyons and some casual HPDE or auto-x. Tecna do not require service and are intended to last the life of your vehicle.

    Why one piece body?
    Body, shaft lengths, stroke, mounts, and internal configuration are specifically engineered and maximized for this application. They are unlike 2 piece, length adjustable coilovers that use an existing universal short cartridge with an extension adapter to make it fit. The advantage of a one piece shock is full bump and droop travel without needing to choose one or the other. Additionally, a one piece shock is all shock, no hollow adapter that wastes space. That means more oil and nitrogen volume for better pressure balancing and increased shaft stroke. A telling feature is the helper springs (stroke!). Youtube video on 1 & 2 piece shocks

    Set up
    Tecna 6/4kg will give the best combination of handling and ride with stock front sway bar. More sway bar than that will only reduce ride quality without any meaningful increase in grip or handling. For 9/6kg Sport springs, a 22mm OEM NB, 23mm MSM, 24mm Eibach/FM or 25.4mm Racing Beat are good options. Our optional Tecna Handling Kit includes the Racing Beat front bar and our adjustable end links

    Front fender liners
    The standard front setup provides enough bump travel for a 205/50/15 tire on a +36 offset 158 to just barely kiss the fender liner at full bump. Wider tires or lower offset wheels may require removal of plastic inner fender liners in front. If running 245/40/15 tires or touching the front fender liners on big bumps, add our shock mount spacers or travel limiters to create enough space for your oversize tires.
