I thought K sports had two adjustments 1) the shock body could be lengthened or shortened by adjusting the lower portion of the shock/strut body and 2) spring compression (although a poor way to raise or lower a car as it impacts suspension travel). That said, I believe the K Sports are good at lowering but little else.
That's what I found out after having to raise it so much so the fender didn't sit on the tire. Still tucking about 1/4 of the sidewall almost.

Anyone have any other ideas on how to fix it so I don't rub as much? Would like to still save my tires lol. And also looking to fix this before I get an alignment.
