TEIN constantly continues to pursue the best suspension system for both street and track applications. A good suspension system reminds drivers how fulfilling the driving experience really is. TEIN kits offer the ability to feel the grip level on different road surfaces, durability to maintain high performance for a long period of time, and quality to ensure complete confidence to attack the course. TEIN through is years of experience has managed to constantly develop new interactions of its coilover range, always improving on previous kits. Simply put you should choose TEIN coilovers because they have a proven track record in performance. 


Ultimate Control over your Suspension

TEIN's approach to the Ultimate Sports Suspension offers ideal suspension systems for drivers who want quicker and better response to drive freely through turns and who are in pursuit of ultimate driving experience. It gives your vehicle the road holding which allows you to drive as you always imagined. It is an aggressive suspension which lets you put all you have into driving, and allows you look forward to attacking the next unknown turn. TEIN suspensions maintain their superior performance, and are highly durable. Quality of our products can withstand the high demands of the race track. This is what we see as the ideal sports suspension. Each of TEIN's products brings this ideal to reality.


Made for Street

In certain terms, street usage may be the toughest situation for suspensions. Indeed, specifications for circuit or rally usage call for the ultimate refinement. However, adapting this into street usage, not only does it call for premium sports performance, but an additional requirement compatibility with series production fittings and comfort must also be fulfilled. In particular, since the partial revision of the safety regulations in Japan, the height adjustable shock absorbers which have been categorized as "competition auto parts" are now seen as parts with broad usage.


Fully Adjustable

With adjustable coilovers you have complete control over your suspensions ride. Perfect for performance you can control how hard or soft you want your drive to be.


Serviceable and Rebuildable

Fulcrum Suspensions the Authorised, exclusive TEIN distributors in Australia and can provide a range of services to repair, rebuild, re-valve and customise your TEIN coilovers. TEIN coilovers are designed and built to be remanufactured and returned to TEIN’s original specifications. All internal parts are carried as stock lines; however damaged strut bodies or assemblies will often need special procurement from TEIN Japan. Fulcrum does carry an assortment of second hand strut bodies and assemblies to assist in accident damage and repair. Some accident damaged coilovers may not be repairable.

From the time the coilovers are received at the Remanufacturing Department at Moorooka, Brisbane, we require two days to strip and quote. Then from the time Fulcrum is authorised to carry out the repairs, we require two days. These times do not include freight times to and from Moorooka.

TEIN’s History

"The one, who conquers Kanagawa, conquers the country." In the early 1980s, there were 2 youngsters who stood out in the crowd, in the kingdom of rally; Kanagawa. They were Hakaru Ichino and Yoshio Fujimoto. A co-driver and a 4driver, who actually started out as rivals from different teams. They were very aware of each other. Without a word, their runs and speed fiercely attracted one another. "Where can I find that incredibly fast driver named Fujimoto?" As Ichino's rally activity shifted to all Japan events, he was told to find his partner; "the" driver. Without hesitation, he found out through his friend how to reach Fujimoto and called him. "Why don't we compete in all Japan events together?" Of course Fujimoto immediately agreed. There was absolutely no reason for him to turn down such offer from Ichino, for whom he had sense of reverence. "Mr. Ichino always stays cool, and is great at gathering information. I can leave everything to him!" This was where it all began.

Exceptional performance and durability. TEIN shock absorbers were then given high marks not only for use in rally events but also in other fields; on the street and at the circuit. They achieved an astonishingly high 80% share of dampers used in N1 Taikyu races (currently known as Super Taikyu). "There is NO doubt in what we have been doing at TEIN. We can go for it!" In 1990, their wait was over and they released original products under the TEIN brand. In no time, they were flooded with orders, exceeding their production capability. Their success as an International rally team shed light on the company.

In 1987, 2 years after their first season competing in all Japan events, they made their first challenge in overseas races; Hong Kong-Beijing Rally. 2 years later in 1989, they finally made their way to WRC. Things went well and smoothly for Fujimoto. He became the first Japanese ever to be chosen as a driver for a Toyota works team. In 1995, he was crowned with an overall victory in the Safari Rally; and again he was the first Japanese to have this distinction. Their names; 'Ichino' and 'Fujimoto', became well known throughout the world. "Rally is where we started. We would always like to be in-touch with the real market. Putting ourselves at the forefront of the scene allows us to listen to the consumers' real voice." By experiencing TEIN products firsthand, their conviction as company executives were developed and refined. Their company, TEIN, continues to compete in motorsports to this day.
