NC coilovers on a budget

Post by SimplyClean »

I've got a >1500$ budget and am looking for a set of reliable coilovers. I want a stiffer ride (I DO track the car, but it is my DD. Looking for pretty stiff at around 8k/6k range and a 90mm drop.) I noticed the ksport kontrol coilovers on this site for under a grand, what's wrong with them? Thanks!

Okay, but for that price range my first choice is our TEIN selections.

Are there any problems with the ksports? Or are the TEIN options just *better*, thanks!

Indeed I just think the latest TEIN product is more for your money.

I haven't heard of may NC owners running KSports...

Brian, how many sales of those do you receive?

Just a few per year so not a lot of feedback, versus a few TEIN kits per week including customer installs that I have driven for track and autocross. Thus, I am more comfortable suggesting the TEIN kits because we have many more in use by customers and I have driven some of the installs against the clock to fast times, etc.

Do you know the height adjustment on the ksports vs the street flexes?
