TEIN's Passion is to Exceed Others.More flexibility. Crisp handling. The ability to turn corners freely. For ALL drivers in search of total driving pleasure. TEIN continues to pursue the ideal suspension. A spectacular suspension reminds drivers how fulfilling the driving experience really is. The ability to feel the grip level on different road surfaces, durability to maintain high performance for a long period of time and quality to ensure complete confidence to attack the course. We are passionate about attaining our goals. At TEIN we create total driving pleasure.

Features:

  • OE-Shaped: EnduraPro and EnduraPro PLUS are high-performance OE-shape shock absorbers. Designed to use with the vehicle's original (OE) spring and upper mount, their lower spring seat is shaped identical to the OE shock absorber. In addition to replacing worn or leaking OE dampers, these products are excellent to improve specs like ride quality or handling without changing your ride height. You can also use them with TEIN lowering springs.
  • Available per piece: EnduraPro and EnduraPro PLUS can be purchased per 1 shock absorber, you can limit the cost for replacing worn or damaged dampers.
  • Sealed Structure: The top end of the shell pipe is narrowed, oil and gas are injected, and the whole unit is sealed by crimping the metal. This new approach massively shortens the production process. As a result, we have succeeded in vastly cutting production cost.
  • High-Performance Damper Oil: Exhibiting a stable viscosity in a broad temperature range, the high-performance damper oil sustains smooth strokes and a reliable damping force under all kinds of circumstances. It has excellent anti-foaming properties that protect it from cavitation (bubble-forming), and is resistant to overheating, so that it works noiselessly even on rough roads. The damper oil keeps up its superior performance long-term, because it is also resistant to deterioration over time.
  • Rustproof Surface Treatment: The shell case's bright TEIN-green powder paint coating excels in strength and durability, while our coating technique is eco-friendly and without organic solvents. After pre-treatment, TEIN's patented 2-Layer, 1-Bake powder coating method with corrosion-proofing paint is used for superior durability and rust protection. Outstandingly corrosion-resistant, EnduraPro and EnduraPro PLUS can safely be used in regions with heavy snowfall or coastal areas, etc. Japanese patent number 4347712
  • Hydraulic Bump Stopper (HBS) More comfort and higher durability at maximum passenger and cargo load. How it works? When regular shock absorbers fully stroke, their bump rubbers are compressed. The energy that is generated by that escapes as a repulsive force, which can disturb the vehicle's behavior. Furthermore, repeated full strokes can damage the damper. In the same situation EnduraPro and EnduraPro PLUS, featuring H.B.S., internally convert the impact of the stroke to thermal energy (heat) and absorb it, strongly reducing the impact that disturbs the vehicle's behavior. With less damage to the dampers, H.B.S. also contributes to their durability.
  • Twin-Tube System: Compared to the regular mono-tube system, twin-tube attains longer strokes with a smaller repulsive force, resulting in high ride comfort.
Fitments:
  • Volkswagen R32 2004
  • Volkswagen New Beetle 1.8/2.0L 1999-2005
  • Volkswagen New Beetle 1.9/2.5L 2006-2010
  • Volkswagen Golf IV 1.8/2.0L GL/GLI/GTI 1999-2005
  • Volkswagen Jetta IV (1MX) 1.8/2.0L GL/GLI 1999-2005

Why Choose Tein Suspension?

Although there’s a massive amount of suspension companies out there, few of them have the history or reputation of Tein. With a wide range of different products at different price points, Tein offers suspension components for nearly every automotive application out there.

It all started in the early 1980s, when two rally racers couldn’t find shock absorbers which could withstand their aggressive driving techniques. After tossing the idea around, the two racers created their own suspension company, which is how Tein was born.

Tein’s shock absorbers quickly became popular with rally racers from grass roots to high-level WRC cars through the 1980s and 1990s. In 1995, Japan eliminated some of their strict laws which prohibited the use of suspension modifications and the demand for Tein quickly grew to new levels.

Twin Tube vs Mono Tube

Looking at the outside of a damper or coilover might make you think they’re all the same, but what’s inside them varies massively. There are two types of dampers which are used in the automotive industry: twin tube and mono tube. Some aftermarket suspension companies push the idea that mono tube dampers are the absolute best, but that’s really not entirely true.

While mono tube dampers are used in the majority of race cars, they simply don’t provide the same ride quality that a twin tube damper can provide.

A twin-tube design can be found on the majority of OEM shocks, low-end coilovers, and even mid-level coilovers designed for street use. It’s not a bad design by any means. Twin-tube uses an inner and outer tube. The inner tube holds the piston shaft, valve, and oil. The outer tube holds damper oil and nitrogen gas. The design allows for more suspension stroke without increasing the height of the body, providing better ride quality.

Depending on which Tein coilover you pick, it could either use a twin tube or mono tube damper. Tein is one of the few aftermarket suspension manufacturers who offers both twin tube and mono dampers, because twin tube dampers are simply more difficult to manufacture.

Should I Buy Coilovers or Lowering Springs?

While Tein’s coilovers are great and many of them are very affordable, some enthusiasts simply want something cheaper. Not everyone wants all the capabilities and benefits of a full coilover, sometimes you just want the lowered stance without everything else.

Lowering springs are typically physically smaller than OEM springs and utilize higher spring rates. With stiffer rates, total body movement is reduced which eliminates excessive weight transfer and poor handling characteristics. The lower ride height also lowers the center of gravity of the entire vehicle which further reduces body movement, especially while cornering.

Since many lowering springs use higher spring rates than the OEM units, the dampers have to work extra hard to keep the car under control. Although you may not be able to tell on the road, your OEM dampers may not be able to control your car with the higher spring rates. This problem is unique per vehicle, but it can occur with almost any car.

Coilovers theoretically fix the problem listed above by combining a higher rate spring with a damper designed to work with that spring correctly; however, that doesn’t mean all coilovers are better than the OEM suspension.

Tein coilovers are carefully designed to provide the best balance of damping, spring rate, ride quality, suspension stroke, and pricing. Many of their coilovers feature height and damping adjustment, which allows you to dial in your suspension for your exact needs. If you plan on attending any track events or just want the best performance possible, a set of coilovers is a much better purchase than lowering springs.

Spring and Damping Adjustability

The majority of Tein’s coilovers offer a significant amount of adjustability. This adjustment will typically come in the form of an adjustable collar which threads up or down the body and either compresses or decompressed the spring. This adjustment effects spring pre-load which increases the amount of force needed to compress the coilovers, but does not increase spring rate.

Many of their coilovers also offer ride height adjustment. Being able to adjust ride height and spring pre-load independently allows for much greater suspension tuning and ultimately allows for the best handling possible when properly tuned by a qualified professional.
