KW suspension

How many people have a KW suspension system fitted?
How much difference did it make to handling and which version did you get? Is the vehicle used on the street or track/both.
Is the ride better than previous. Currently my car has H & R springs but I will swap all springs and shocks.
I am considering version 2 or 3 but I think 3 may be overkill for my current use. Should I just bite the bullet and get three anyway. The price difference is about $500.
Thanks.

Pinarelloman,

I have the KW-V3's and I love them..!

They can be tightly adjusted for the track ( & get the car corner balanced), mine also has the H&R sway bars.

Also, on the street you will have a ride better than the OEM struts.

A happy customer indeed, however it took me a hole day to install them..


PS; Edited for a more appropriate English language... sorry

The short answer is - a set of high quality aftermarket coilovers that are properly dialed in will give your vehicle a sense of balance and poise that is otherwise lacking in the oem suspension . Go for it !
