The drive is smooth, almost no body roll, and they are just awesome! although I did have to install rear camber arms, toe links, and front tubular control arms to get it aligned properly. No need to look like a honda with horrible camber.


So how much did everything else cost? I'm looking into ksport coilovers, should have the money in a few weeks. But I want to do this right, so how much are all the addons?

Get BC instead. That is what I have. They have adjustable camber plates built in up front. I tuck a 45 series on a 16 inch wheel. No camber/toe arms and no tubular control arms. Only after market suspension parts are coilovers and wheels.

Moved to Brakes, Suspension & Chassis so this can be searched easier.

How are your alignment specs? Pretty much any time I mess with my ride height my toe goes out and I am glad I have adjustable rear toe arms. Keeps my tires from getting worn too fast, rear camber doesn't seem to cause any issues.

jsquared, also check out ST coilovers, they are made by KW and have been one of the lowered priced options.
For rear camber, you can try camber bolts first for +/-1 degree ~$25) or adjustable camber arms ($120-170/pair, depending on how much camber you want/need.)
Adjustable rear toe arms will probably cost you around $150-170.

Adjustable front parts can be a little trickier to install, either adding camber plates or adjustable tubular control arms.


Link below is for CFM but plenty of other places sell them, will give a starting point.

Get a different set of coilovers. A little over a year and all they do is make horrible spring binding noises among other issues.

The st coilover setup is a great option, installed mine November of 2012 and they still feel like new. 800 shipped on eBay was a great deal (90310 was the part number if I remember correctly).

$760 here, even better. I bought my ksports from them, shipping was slow but also was free. My K-sports are doing fine, no issues however, ST's are less expensive now.
