Picked up my TEIN's on Saturday morning and installed them today. After the first short test drive, they are really, really comfortable. I did notice some minor stiffness when going over some of those extra large speed bumps but it was a nice ride and the stiffness is good so the vehicle doesn't bounce to crazy after going over the speed bumps.

This is before the final rear adjustment.


This one is after the rear adjustment.

They are adjustable, and can still go an half an inch lower in the front and back. I tuck front tire by about half an inch and the rear is maybe a 1/4 of an inch tucked. I noticed the pictures I took really didn't to the drop justice. I have some pics of it stock height next to my RX330 and I need to take another similar shot in similar lighting of it now and you can really see how low is is.

The tools you need bro are called spanner wrenches. And they can be bought online. Damn near any will work, but you definitely need 2

TEIN Basics ride awesome on the 2nd gen xB! Helped install a set of these on the build off xB for SET. Basics are ride height adjustable, just no dampening adjustment like Super Street and Flex kits.
