Why couldnt we, Or could we just find a company that makes coil overs for beamers or something, and see if we could match a set to one of ours?

All we would need is the correct top and bottom fitment, and they seem to come in all kinds of different rebound and dampning.

The problem is that our shocks dont work well with the aftermarket springs... Like the eibachs that come with the ground control setup...

KW Automotive has them available along with ST sway bars. Announcement for pricing is on the back burner until SEMA is over.

I just spoke with my buddy at KW. He is swamped with prep for the SEMA show but will provide me with a contact so anyone that's interested can speak directly for pricing and product info. The short story is that Germany made a few changes to the kit so that was the cause for delay.

Hey Dave we haven't seen you around here for a while I hope things are going well for you!

Still tempting me with these coil over kits they are. So how are you liking yours now that you have some miles on it?

Rob,

You may or may not have read Frank's review. Post # 24.

Let me know when you want to get together and you can see/feel how well the suspension works for yourself.

Dave

P.S. this offer is open to anyone else interested in the KW set-up.

Maybe it's time we put a meet together. I was hoping more people would show up to the race but there were only a handful of us.

V is down now but hope to have it running by the weekend.

I have read the review a couple of times and it get's me all excited but I was just wondering if you still feel the same after all this time. I would like to compare it to mine so the next time we get together maybe you can take me for a spirited run!

Do a search and you'll see my post. I have k-sport fully adjustable coil overs on my car. You can adjust the shocks themselves. I have my car lowered over 3 inches and the ride is MUCH better than stock. You retain full suspension travel with this set up even lowered to the max. I paid about $1300 and that was with an extra set of rear springs (eibachs) that I got for the back ( I stiffened them a bit). These things are unbelievable for the price. I'm sure the KW's will cost twice as much. I may be trading in my car for a new GMC truck in the next month and will be selling them. Again, do a search on these. There's an 8 page thread.:thumbsup:
