You cant compare them the way you want to. Tein Flex is adjustable, Mugen SS is not.

the Mugen isn't nearly as much of a suspension as the Tein. if it were, it wouldn't cost only 1000 compared to over 1500 for the Tein
Cost is a stupid comparison for these 2 setups, especially with the above statement. Define "much of a suspension" so we can be on the same page. Tein SS is fully adjustable, Mugen isn't. That in itself could be the difference in cost.

Or it could be that Mugen put all their work in R&D since the design of their setup was already created. Mugen is esentially all spring/shock research in a stock container. This would keep the cost down a lot.

Agreed. Mugen is great for the fact that alot of R&D went into the design. While the freedom of adjustment is a great thing too. When adjusting height, camber and alignment have to be adjusted too.
