    Took the time to install my KW springs today... Install wasnt too bad. It took me about 4 hours crawling aroung by myself. A lot of that time was taking the wheels on and off to make height adjustments.. And another 1/2 hour was needed to run to the store to buy 2 set screws that were needed and some crazy German neglected to include....

    The spings are fully adjustable height wise. I ended up adjusting the car down 1" all the way around. I measured from the ground to the front and rear wheel lips, and also the front splitter to gauge the difference... I will give the car few hundred miles to "settle", as they mention the car may settle another .2"-.3".... Then I will have the alignment checked..

    Ride quality, honestly, has not been affected AT ALL... rides quality is exactly the same in all 3 Suspension Modes, but is definetly less "floaty" when in "Street" mode, which is what I use on our wonderful Wisconsin roadways...

    Before and after pics... thoughts? I am VERY happy with the look...

    Looks very nice at that height. Did you measure the difference when it was stock and in track mode? Let's hope you did it in a warm garage. Those days working on the car outside in the winter really stink.

    Close to 50* today.. I was actually sweating a bit. It felt good.

    99% sure that the height doesnt change between suspension modes.. just the rate of dampening of the shocks or whatever you want to call them..

    Full coilovers? My KWs are fully adjustable. I could go another 1.5"-2" easy with just the turn of a wrench..

    I like it, its just a bit%^ now dealing with the ride height. Its good though you can crank the wrench if you have to get a lift under it etc.
    Good job!

    Cool I may do this when my car comes to a point that they need replacing. Being German I assume they are of excellent quality. Did your camber visually look different? Thanks for the pictures too.
