    Spring rates are in the 7xx/4xx range. These are prototypes, so rates may change when we get track time on it.

    Pricing will be 1990$ initially if we can get 3 sets, and 2295 after the intro.

    I was under the impression intial cost would be 1990 and the everyday price is $2295...

The main reason I didn't go for the full coilovers mentioned here is because I have a hitch and didn't think the extra weight from the trailer/with 2 sportbikes on it and gear in the trunk would be a good idea with rear coil overs. I don't really have any data showing that the rear shock towers wouldn't be able to handle it, but it just seemed like a bad idea. Also I believe the price of the kw v3 system is slightly less. Either solution seems like a large leap forward compared to stock.
    Let me know how these are once you install them.

    I installed them about 2 months ago they are great. I ordered some stiffer rear springs since I trailer bikes few times a year but overall great kit. The shocks are night and day better than the stock fe4. I have not tried the FG2 kit. I am very pleased with the ride they provide.

    Are they daily driveable? How much ride comfort do they sacrifice?

    Do you know what the rebuild interval is?

    (As discussed earlier in this thread the similar Penske set-up has a rebuild interval of 30 track-hours not to exceed one year.)

    Great to hear. I am expecting that they have less body roll, but are still compliant enough on the bumps as not to knock your fillings loose.

    Re: CTS-V Coilovers from LG Motorsports

    I now have the LG Motorsport coilovers installed....they make an amazing improvement in handling. The whole car seems much more planted, there is much less body roll, and no more unwanted vertical travel over bumps. I've driven my favorite twisty roads...30 to 60mph turns and the car handles great now!

    How is the NVH of the car with these on?
