Youll be fine with the setup it comes with. I like the ksports also for the adjustabkle damper, but moreso for the fact that the ride height is not based off the spring perch but the base is adjustable. So you still get full damper travel and are not shortening the stroke to go lower like some do. Very ingenius design.

I just got a set of DGR coil overs from a member on here, they work great but the owner isn't answering people very often so take it with a grain of salt.

I can go lower but I scrape muffler at the moment.

Looks good. How does it ride? Does DGR use the adjusting style of K sport where you do not loose strut travel? I cant quite tell from their website.

I didn't even notice the adjustable base on the Ksports. That's very appealing. I don't understand why companies don't just say 06-11 if the 06-07 fit the 08-11.

Here is the reply I got from them regarding the difference between kontrol pro and rally spec ar. Called him after as well and def reccomended the kontrol pro. He did also tell me the the chrome and orange version hasn't been made since 2008 so anything you buy new should be the black and orange ones.


Thanks for contacting us here at Ksport.

The Asphalt Rally setup has stiffer springs on it and the kontrol pro is actually the street setup. I would recommend the kontrol pro setup for the car as it is 36 way adjustable dampening and I used it on my street car for both auto x and nasa DE events up through time trials.

I can help you get a set on order for you car. The Asphalt Rally setup is more in the middle of the road in regards to spring stiffness. The street kit is the kontrol pro, then the stiffer asphalt rally, then the RR version (road race) which I would not recommend be driven on a street.


Give me a call to discuss or order.
