B14 KSport Coilover Set

I've got a used set of K-Sport coilovers that I bought here on this forum a few months ago. I bought them from jer_760. AFter I got them on I find out that the rear shocks are blown. I am selling them for half of what I got in them. They are being sold with the knowledge that the rears are not suited for any high performance use. The front's seem fine and that's really what you're buying with these.


I am asking $300 for the complete set.


Below you can see a video I just took yesterday of the condition of these.

If you still need coilovers then why not buy new shocks from Ksport for the rears? They are less than $200 each, and you are done.

BTW, I have a B14 race car, and have been using Megans and for the most part been happy. I upped the rear spring rate some to help the car turn and it's been working pretty well. Ksports are almost identical to Megans so I would expect that might help yours too.

The only issue I had was the shocks in the front seem to loosen in the front if I don't put a little lock-tite on the threads of the shock and jam nut.

Also, upping spring preload isn't the way to adjust these shocks. As a matter of fact, it's a bad thing. Get heaver springs if you need more spring rate.

Enjoy,

Thanks Bill. I got a great deal on a set of BC coil overs. I jacked up the rear preload to try to combat the shocks not working while I was at the track. I just want to sell these now. As you said the rears will be easy for someone to put new shocks into.

It does if you're east of the Mississippi, and it looks like you are. So, yes.
