    The low down
    The Tecna coilover was engineered from scratch to be the best riding coilover in this price range and still allow lowered ride heights. We think of these as daily driver shocks, not race shocks. If you are focused on the ultimate handling in a competition type environment, we recommend stepping up to Xidas with much higher spring rates. Tecna damping range is roughly equivalent to the softest 35% of Xida range. Perfect for a daily driver, canyons and some casual HPDE or auto-x. Tecna do not require service and are intended to last the life of your vehicle. Ideally suited to 185-205 width tires above 280 treadwear on 6-8″ wheels. For wider, softer compound tires, look at our Xida options.

    Why one piece body?
    Body, shaft lengths, stroke, mounts, and internal configuration are specifically engineered and maximized for this application. They are unlike 2 piece, length adjustable coilovers that use an existing universal short cartridge with an extension adapter to make it fit. The advantage of a one piece shock is full bump and droop travel without needing to choose one or the other. Additionally, a one piece shock is all shock, no hollow adapter that wastes space. That means more oil and nitrogen volume for better pressure balancing and increased shaft stroke. A telling feature is the helper springs (stroke!).

    Set up:
    Typical available adjustment ranges are front pinch weld heights between 4.75″ and 6″ with driver. Tecna will give the best combination of handling and ride with stock or a small aftermarket front sway bar. 1″ max front, OEM rear. More sway bar than that will only reduce ride quality without any meaningful increase in grip or handling.

    Front fender liners:
    The standard front setup provides enough bump travel for a 205/50/15 tire on a +36 offset 15×8 to just barely kiss the fender liner at full bump. Wider tires or lower offset wheels will require removal of plastic inner fender liners in front. If running 245/40/15 tires or touching the front fender liners on big bumps, add our shock mount spacers or travel limiters to create enough space for your oversize tires.

    Glad I did not order the CRDs yet, $200 or so more seems like a good deal.
