Default K-Sport Coilovers

Hello guys and girls I got a 2004 max and was wonder who did coilovers? I just ordered a set of ksport. Because the strut mount went for the second time in 18 months!! It would be great to see pics and know what other people are doing for adjustability? Thanks Paul

my boy had the same problem with the ksport... they are junk, ksport let him upgrade to the nicer coilovers which have stronger metal joints and he was fine... it cost him a couple hundred to upgrade tho...

Yup, for better increased steering feel. They're like 1400 and some change but worth it. I had them on a different car and they were sweet.

Default Re: K-Sport Coilovers

I have had K-Sports for over 5 years and have very little issues. I have replaced on strut and always need to make sure everything is tight but other than that they have been great! I agree they aren't the best but when I got them there was nothing else...

As far as adjust-ability, I pretty much leave them alone, they are not quite dropped as low as they can go. And although the ride sucks (as with most coils) it handles like a go kart!

No I had my stock suspension done in march 09 and the replaced everything for like 1100!!! So now the stock strut mounts went so I ordered the ksports to get installed this weekend. I'm hoping they are going to work out better than the junk that they put in from monroe!!! And I'm not sure how to post pics of my car on this forum either!

I could be wrong bc I dont know how jsmith and blazen drive for sure, but it seems like they are both more show than go and prob just cruise.

Everyone I know that races or goes to the track with ksport had issues every week.

I don't race every weekend but I definitely don't just cruise either. I'm not necessarily track hard on them but I push them. My big little go kart loves to slam some corners!!!
