Default R53 Ksport coils?

Anyone have any opinion about Ksport coil overs for the R53?

I have swift springs with koni yellows right now, handles crazy good but wanting some more low and more comfort.

I am not a very big fan of the "cheaper" coilover selection. To be honest. If you go that route, i would just grab some BC or megan coils. I have found them to be pretty comfy and work pretty well.

As far as daily driving an spriting driving, KW is a solid choice but cost is a bit more.


What you have now is a nice handling setup. But I understand the want to be a bit lower.

If you are wanting to stay around the 1k range in price, my opinion is to get the BC or megan

Thanks for the response. Yeah my mechanic was pushing for Ksport but I hadn't really seen any reviews for them. I want a cushy daily driver ride, not one that breaks my spine. :luff:

I'd like some bags but that doesn't seem financially wise for me any time soon, so I think I'm going to end up with (edit) ST coils since they are basically the lower quality version of KW's? I don't need 32 adjustment settings, just need one smooth ride that's very much a install and forget about it.

Yes the ST coils will be a great choice for you I think.

If you are looking for a cush rid. Be sure to check out H&R coilovers, they are a bit softer than most.

ran the H&Rs for about 70k - loved them--got them and a adjustable rear sway bar from Turner Motorsports for about $1k (on sale)--they got low enough to look good but still had some good spring response
