The TEIN Type BASIC damper system offers a high quality full coil-over system with added performance and comfort at an entry level price. The BASIC damper is recommended for drivers who are seeking a real coil-over kit instead of sleeve-over + damper setups. Each type BASIC damper is designed vehicle-specific and developed exclusively for US model vehicles. The BASIC damper uses technology and manufacturing processes as TEINs most sophisticated damper system, but at a fraction of the cost.
