      K Sports aren't the most consistent. They are not a top brand.

      The GC sleeve overs DO work with Bilsteins. The website is not up to date, nor should you buy them through the website. Contact...

      Cap head screws might help to retain the mount. It looks like a third bolt per side could be added for additional hold. However it seems the main issue still lies with the top nut. As stated...

      At the very least, in the past, KW has used Koni inserts for coilovers and shocks for separate spring shock applications. However, that does not say that the valving is identical between what Koni...

      Someone else weighed them sometime ago. They're a fair amount heavier, perhaps more durable?

      Currently the only option is a Torque Biasing Differential located at the front of the vehicle. It will make a tremendous difference, but its not the same as mounting a LSD to the rear of the...

      You should try talking to one of the aftermarket shock rebuilders such as ProParts. Since they're Bilsteins they likely use a lot of the same internals. Could even have them revalved instead of...

      Pretty common on the more heavily stressed cars. The bolt type axles seem to do a little better, but the root cause seems to be that the axle nut/bolt torque spec is not tight enough for these...

      KW V2s are only rebound adjustable where as the PSS10s will adjust rebound and compression. The Bilsteins also run a higher gas charge, so their initial feel will be stiffer as well. If you're...

      400 is the max that the Konis will take. Koni or ProParts USA can revalve them. There are many others out there that offer the service as well. The issue with the Konis is that they aren't...

      Very popular kit. Easy to install and very easy to adjust. The pieces do not seize up unless highly abused. Very pleased with their components and the ability to swap springs.
