well you can ask around places. i think JBL has them for 835. you can ask or email them about it. higher springs rate then the stiffer it is. what suspension are u riding on right now?

ksports are really good but they are not meant fo DAILY.. this is cause they are very stiff compared to teins and that means u might have a rougher ride.. so if u are goin to be daily driving on them.. u might wanna stay with the teins..

Ksports... D2's... Megans... are all the same coilover. They may have a few different options but, still they are practically the same.. They are like the skittles of coilovers.. you pick a color.. and its almost the same taste.. ahhaha... I was in the market in ordering some D2's but later found out that they are made from the same manufactuer in china ( or taiwan i forget) that Ksport and all the other coilovers are from. Don't get me wrong they are a good setup to have, but like everyone else said they are a bit stiff. Also, if you really want the Ksport setup, then you can order custom spring rates. For the teins.. they used to be produced in japan, but now are produced in china... Teins will be a good DD setup. I have teins right now, cause of a good deal, they are very comfortable... you get an adjustable height plus the ride quality of almost stock. I ride on 18 BSA wheels with 225/40/18 rubbers and i cant really feel the difference in ride quality of the teins and stock.

BTW my buddies ITR has the Ksports right now and all i can say is that you will feel every bump n twig on the road.. hahah

lilfotoman, how are you dealing with dd the car,, and would you say the performance of the ksports is worth the stiff ride?

fyi, right now i have neuspeed race springs with koni yellows on full stiff.. it's a pretty stiff setup than most people want to deal with but i kinda want stiffer and easier height adjustability what would you recommend?

i like the stiff ride actually, so imo its worth it. its just all personal preferences. i actually like feeling the bumps and whatnot and like the stiff ride thats why i got it in the first place. some ppl want a comfortable ride, so in that case i would go with the basics or the ss. but if u want stiff go KSPORT

i wondering that if u slamm it on ksports.. how would the ridebe.. cause i like mine slammed. right now i am on tein and rides sweet.. for a daily.. but ksports being more stiff as well as not a lot of people recommending on daily cars makes me wanna think twice about them as i dont wanna hear every single squeak in the car

becuase ksports have adjustable shock body they should feel the same no matter what height...unlike teins where they dont have adjustable shock body so the lower u go the less the shock has to travel....which can lead to premature blowing and a harsh ride.

ksports ftw! hahaha
