  • coilovers

    Well I had my KW V2 coilovers fitted and completely setup today, after 10 long hours they were finally perfect
    A massive thanks goes to extreme motorsport for being very competent and professional in setting these up,
    I wanted low but with zero rubbing and after many hours of tweaking, resetting, aligning etc they were ready to tear up the streets once again

    Iv not had the chance to try them in any spirited driving as yet, as I can't begin to tell you just how different it is to drive, everything is tight, wheels stay straight and true under breaking and it goes round corners like its on rails ( cliche I know) but wow its true

    I'm very excited to try them in more circumstances over the coming weeks, but I thought I would give you ky first experience of them and Il review over the coming days

                  If you don't mind me asking how much has that little lot stung you? Coil overes and 10 hours of set up?

                  Thing is I don't know if it's in my head but mine is just starting to feel more and more "loose" as time goes by. It used to feel so taught, tight etc..

                      Coilovers cost me *ahem* £380 delivered and setup was a further £280 but imo well worth it

                        Jimbo, mine was exactly the same.

                        I changed the dampers & springs to KW Variant 2 coilovers (like stewarts)

                        I changed my front droplinks for new ones.

                        I changed my rear anti-roll bar bushes

                        Its all feeling tighter again now. But its basically the suspension components that are wearing. Replace them and it'll feel tight and like new again

                          Bargain.

                          Are those coilovers brand new off the back of a lorry then Stewart for that price, or second hand?

                          Normally KW Variant 2 INOX Coilovers are £1200 new + Fitting

                            Yea that was the best setup that can be done without running etc mate, its an evo/subaru tuner/race team that done it so they know there stuff, I don't mind paying for it when its done properly

                              6 months old mate, I struck a deal and they were happy, I was happy so everyone's a winner I knew before I bought them that there 100% serviceable so it didn't bother me if anything was slightly wrong, I could easily get it fixed, thankfully they were spot on,
                              Is that 1200 fitted then need setup buddy?
