Coilovers for the mk2

Not sure whether this should be in suspension or here, but I had to choose one. For 08+ what coilover kits are available? I've heard great reviews about the K-sports, but I can't find them for the second gen. Do I need to get the omni kit to fit these, or can I buy them for 08+?

There are a few kits for the 08+. I have a buddy running Ksports and he loves them. H&R also offers a kit. You won't need an omni kit.

Any chance you could link me to some K sports. I can't seem to find them for our gen.

as long as you have all the pieces (top hat and all) you should be able to use the 06-07 set from them with no problems

The MKII Focus was never sold in the US-C307 this iswhy you CANNOT say MKII

The cars you have are classified as MK1.5 as they are still called a C170 chassis, pull the wire harness under the front seat and it should be marked on there C170.

MKI-Global car
MKII-Was NOT sold in the US or Canada
MKIII-Global car

^correct.

As far as coilovers go, check out tirerack. They have some listed for the 08+. That will give you an idea of what you can use. FSWerks and Tirerack both sell the H&R kit for the 08+. As previously stated you can also get a set of Ksports.

If you want more suspension options, either buy an Massive Omni Kit or swap your front knuckles to '05 knuckles. This will allow you to run the earlier style suspensions giving you more options on kit.

for KSport they have the Kontrol Pro (road race) or the Rally Spec AR (asphalt rally racing). i just sent them an email to get some advice comparing the two. wondering which one will handle some racing (drag or autox) as well as doing well with the crappy roads that I have to drive on around the midwest. i'm wondering if the rally ar would be able to take more abuse on the roads around here and might be a better choice for all around use.

I'll let ya know what they say.

btw not much of a price difference between the two if you were wondering. $1365 for the rally spec ar vs. $1027.50 for the kontrol pro.

So you can not use the camber adjusting plate (pillow ball mount) that comes with them on the 09? You have to use the 08-11 top mounts?

Im trying to figure out if I want to get the H&R or the KSports.
If I was to get the H&R I would get the SPC front camber/caster plates.
I like how the KSports have adjustable damper.
