Installed my new Km V3 today
I wish I could express the dramatic change in my lil ol 12 2.5 cvt scoob with the install of my new coilovers. Of all the suspensions I have installed on bikes and cars, these are the best I've seen. There is a subtle but distinct tell that these are indeed linear rate springs but not anywhere near what I expected. The cornering is phenominal and the addition of the rsb 22" set to the stiffest setting has really set the suspension well. The setup is much smoother than my wife's Honda.... Eibach pro kit with Tokico Illuminas. It was the best $1900 I've ever spent on a car. :spin:

Sorry that was supposed to be KW coil overs.

So what did you set them at?

Set comp to 12 from full hard in front, 14 from full hard rear, and set front and rear rebound at 7 clicks. The ride is on the mild side of stiff but I'm sure as they break in the ride will change a little...

I am also gonna do a write up on my KW V3 with Swifts but so far they are about a half inch higher than my car on just Mann's Swifts. Now I have some extra ground clearance to install the front lip.
