What other suspension parts? (COILS)

What else would I need to buy if I was to go for some Tein Flex Z coil overs. Would be looking to drop around an inch front and rear.

Sorry if this is a bad question just unsure and unable to find a post that outlines this in an idiot proof way.

You're going to need new arms for the front and at least new camber and toe bolts for the rear if you don't replace any of the arms.

forget Tein

Fortune or Powertrix are better bang for the buck

You want the SPL Parts Front Upper Control Arms for front camber/caster adjustment and Rear midlinks, camber arm, and toe arms to do the same in the rear

After that you'll be able to run any height and basically as aggressive a wheel spec you want. The Z has massive wheel wells capable of fitting anything, the limitation is the factory suspension doesn't give any adjustment in front or much in the rear

Just remember you get what you pay for. I would advise not going with Tein and maybe look at Fortune Auto, if you are looking for a budget friendly option. A lot of folks run FA and love them, myself included. I love that they are stateside, easily serviceable and easy to upgrade should you feel the need in the future.

You also want to think about ride comfort. I've had teins before although on a previous car and i didn't like the way they rode. As others have mentioned there are some good coils out there that give you better bang for your buck
