      I have said it before and I will say it again. H&R ultra ultra lows are the best coilovers for our cars. I personally think b&g sources part from the same bin as ksport. If you rode in a h&r car that road the same as your ksports he probably had the normal height coils that were spun too low. I have owned just about every type of coil out there including ksports.

      If I had to do it again, I'd get H&R UUL. Simply for the fact that Ksports are a PITA to adjust for an amateur like myself.

      I've seen this happen to a B&G. They are the same junk design. H&R Coils are the best coil for these cars.

      Traditional coilovers have nothing to do with this thread... H&R and Kw are amazing but they dont thread into the shock bodies or bare and resemblence to how/why the ksports broke. I think that you get what you pay for with coilovers..

      I'm gonna say over tightening the bottom coil lock sleeve that caused these to break like that.

      Cx racing coils have the same design.. Looks like I'm goin with h&r ultra ultra ultra ultra ultra ultra ultra ultra lows

      Never any signs of prior damage. No precursors to the end result.

      Doesn't that saying work with just about everything? Im not justifying the coilover breaking, but there comes a line to every person where they have to justify the amount being spent with the vehicle in question. I didnt want to buy ****ty racelands that are gonna bounce all day with the prisoner built roads of CA, then again I couldn't justify spending a paycheck on coilovers. If i could do it all over I would have bought the H&Rs. Tried & Trued. Middle ground with coilovers is getting harder and harder to find.

      I highly doubt the lock collar was overtightened. I tightened all 4 myself, and would expect the others to do the same as this one. Plus the collar would have stripped out before you could even man-handle its tightness.

      im at 25k right now on mine and have never had an issue. i did replace my driver side strut but that was because of an accident, nothing to do with the coil itself.

      It's all personal preference. Why get mad about someone else's opinion?


      I prefer B&G for damping and how they are designed. I've had collars seize an whatever but a replace body thru B&G is like one hundo shipped. Finding a replacement H&R is a pain in the

      Then again, personal preference and opinion. No need to hound who has the best out there, that's a never ending argument.

      I myself have had H&R UUL and B&G's and my B&G's ride perfect. But I still wouldn't say no to a set of H&R's. I just prefer the B&G's.
