    I just bought and installed some Megan springs and although they are advertised as 2.0 front & back, they were actually more like 2.5 F 2.0 R. I have a v6 and springs I bought were for a V6

    Tein Basic & Super Street are discontinued for 6gen.

    Street Advance & Street Basis are the official models.

    Please edit your list. ;)

    I also meant to say that they aren't under their production.
    could you at least add Street Advance, since you put Street Basis already? Pleeease.
