PostSubject: KW Variants installed   September 14th 2010, 4:51 pm

I got my KW variant coilovers today so I figured I'd throw em on real quick. I am going to let the springs settle before I go any lower. I had the front a little lower and it rubbed on the wheel well liner, and it was also just barely out of the recommended range.

The ride is amazing, feels soft and comfy around town and then stays nice and flat in the corners. Very happy I chose KW's, seems like German's really now their suspension. Compared to my old stance coilovers there are a million times nicer, no noise, much easier to adjust and if you didn't know the car had coilovers you probably wouldn't ever notice. The only complaint I have is the progressive springs in the rear, but I am sure once I get used to them I will love them. Someday I may switch to a swift linear spring out back if I plan on SCCA a lot more next year.

These retain the factory top hat so installation is a little more labor intensive than a true coilover setup but they were pretty easy as far as suspension installs go. Here are a few quick pics I took to show the new ride height.








Thanks to Cap'n for giving me a hand and taking some pictures, I'll let him post the install pics if he ever gets on here.

I would just like to be the first to say MARK MY WORDS THIS THE BEGINNING TO A NEW MONEY PIT!!!!!! Whats next Smase a supercharger? Turbo kit? If I remember correctly you were just going to throw some lowering springs on and call it good. I have no room to talk but I can just remember the phone conversations of I just want something to drive around town! I am just poking fun and the car looks great!!!!!

I am going to agree with Laramie on this one, pretty sure you are addicted to modding cars like the majority of us.

Glad to hear someone likes the KW's. I've been researching them for a couple years now trying to narrow down what I want to do for a spring/ strut setup or coils.

"maybe I will just throw a cd player in it and keep it stock" -Jason in regards to the fully modified 4-door accord.
