damn common dude I spent 5 seconds in the supra archives and found out what it is and how it works.


"Theres three levels of hardness on tems roger.. 'normal' is soft, 'sport' is medium, and the third setting only engages when braking, cornering or accelerating at certain speeds. The Tems firm mod overides them and keeps it in the third setting continously."
Supra guys need to tell you more though. Im not sure how you would remove it without replacing the suspension. That mod to keep it in stiff mode sounds intresting. Seems like if you remvoed it alltogether you might not have any damping at all or it would always be in the softest setting.

ya thanks for reply ik what they r and how they work but i dont know what TEMS stands for. and the firm mod sounds great! i keep it firm cause i enjoy drifting and racing so the firm mod would be perfect. im just concerned if i take them off that they will be stuck in soft due to the fact that i cant change them to firm. thanks man

If you want it removed, just get some adjustable coilovers and call it a day (TIEN, Megan, Eibach). If not, I wouldn't mess with it. Leave it on there. It helps.

But if you just want to upgrade shocks and springs, make sure you car TEMS compatible shocks because they are different from non-tems cars like mine. I suggest you getting Tokico whites and H&R springs.

I have Tokico Blue struts with Eibach springs and the struts made a night and day difference, but the springs didn't lower the car as much as I wanted it to. So I want to sell my Eibachs now and get some H&R's.

Thanks! Bump!Though they never had extra money, they never felt poor as long as they had a neat house, clean clothes, and enough food to feed anyone who came in the front door. They worked to live, not the other way around.My favorite childhood meals were at Buddy and Ollies, eating around a big table in their small kitchen. A typical weekend lunch, which we called dinner (the evening meal was supper), included ham or a roast, corn bread, spinach or collard greens, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, peas, green beans or lima beans, fruit pie, and endless quantities of iced tea we drank in large goblet-like glasses. I felt more grown up drinking out of those big glasses. On special days we had homemade ice cream to go with the pie. When I was there early enough, I got to help prepare the meal, shelling the beans or turning the crank on the ice-cream maker. Come and buy world of warcraft power leveling, cheap wow leveling, free wow power leveling web . warcraft gold webpage! Before, during, and after dinner there was constant talk: town gossip, family goings-on, and stories, lots of them. All my kinfolks could tell a story, making simple events, encounters, and mishaps involving ordinary people come alive with drama and laughter.Buddy was the best storyteller. Like both of his sisters, he was very bright. I often wondered what he and they would have made of their lives if they had been born into my generation or my daughters. But there were lots of people like them back then. The guy pumping your gas might have had an IQ as high as the guy taking your tonsils out. FFXI Gil There are still people like the Grishams in America, many of them new immigrants, which is why I tried as President to open the doors of college to all comers.
wut?

Ditch the TEMS. It is more of a gimmick then anything really beneficial. Go with some nice drop springs and non-adjustable shocks or a nice set of coilovers.
