saw this in the announcements section, thought a copy would do good here as well

http://www.tein.com/counterfeit/warning.html


I know of a few people that have probably bought or have considered buyingTein springs on Ebay. With Tein putting out the message about fakes going around, i saw this happen to someone else on another forum. They had bought these off of ebay to save a few bucks. here is one of those online stores selling them. they even got pictures of the fakes on the advertisement:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...&category=33582

so avoid Atomic Street

just a couple of quick searches turned up these for the Z:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/TEIN-S-Tech...1QQcmdZViewItem

though they try to claim "picture shown my not be for your specific vehicle" clearly after looking at the Tein website, these are fake as hell.


just remember, when i doubt, sometimes it is better to not take a shortcut and spend the few extra dollars. your car and your life is not worth the "savings"

There is always going to be counterfeit merchandise on Ebay. Just make sure you do your research, and buy from a reputable seller, or store.
