LOWERED!! KW Adjustable coil springs installed....

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...

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!

Maybe thats all you need to hit 200 so we don't have to say 199 anymore.;)

Updating this thread... Car has settled another .25", for a total of 1.25" lower than factory. I have yet to scrape or rub anything, including the splitter. Rides really nice, actually there really isnt any difference than factory besides sitting lower... View attachment 8941
Now that is a beautiful picture!;)
