ok, i got my k-sports in the mail a few weeks ago. havnt had time to install them but i can give you pics and show you my impressions of the suspension

this is everything that came with the package deal. the 4 shcok/coil assemblys, the 4 brake line mounts, the 2 cressent wrenches, 2 end links for the rear sway bar, and 4 long allen keys for the shock adjustments.

that is the camber plate/pillow ball mount for the front

finally we have a pic of the very stout shock! i didnt think it was going to be this heavy duty. that white tube is a BIC pen.....thats a big ass piston!

The piston "Rod(??") is the same size as the stock Nissan "rods". But those look nice as hell and I bet they are gonna handle nice also!

are you positive? i have a set of stock shocks back home and they seem to be far larger. granted i havnt held them up against the stockers. buts its a very wide piston.

Nice! Looks like they are for a B14 application?
What did they set you back, and what spring rates are you running?
nope, b13 setup.

they were $740. and the spring rates are 7/5. i beleive this is 390/240? or something like that. if its to hard im going to get 300/250 but thats what they came with mounted on it.

did it come with the adjustable sway bar links? if so, DAMN. before you install, make sure you move the inner bolt for the camber adjuster up.

ill do my best to describe the handling. i have never ridin in another b13 with aftermarket suspension. i know fonge has agx+hyper co and if he comes to help with the install ill let him drive my car and let him give the impressions.


side note: how far should i lower my car? imthinking 2 inches to start then im gona raise it up. but i wana try the nice low look for awhile. im not going lower than 2 inches. i was thinking 1.5 but my friends at school have pushed me down to 2. :biggthump

that looks to be a quality set up. only thing left to do know is put them threw the test. give us feed back and if possible let some one who owns a d2 set up give your car a spin. looks like you may have gotten a great deal/set up.

I drive mine from Germantown to Silver Spring everyday with the Progress rear, and I love it. It's about 23 1/2" high up front, 23 3/4" in the rear, about half stiff all around and the Progress is set the Med. not harsh at all even on bumps.

BTW, got mine for under $700



here's mine, that's the highest it can go, I'll take better pics tommarow

after about 1 month it fells way better
