Do those lock, or can they be removed using a standard lug wrench?

They can be removed with a standard lug wrench. Only difference with these is that they are made out of aircraft grade aluminum. I had a set of cheap ones from AutoZone that locked but I didn't like them at all, and standard lugs don't fit in the Rotas

One of the two final pieces showed up today::


Can't wait to get them in! have to disassemble my current suspension in order to harvest the top mounts for the front. Other than that it should all go right in. And for anyone else considering these, the instructions are in 75% German, with no installation pics. I got most of the info I needed to get from one page of a list of crap.

Sweet deal bro! And BTW, my H&R's instructions were all in German as well, it makes it fun LOL! But with how many suspensions you've done it won't be that bad.

Yeah this is only the 4th kit going on the car lol. The only thing I'm a little puzzled about is the rear spring mounts. Everything else I think I can figure out.
As far as how many suspension set ups I went from Stock SVT suspension to Ksport Control Pro coilovers, to Saleen Racecraft, and now I'm switching to KW V3 coilovers lol.

Chaz and I got the KW V3s installed, I had to file down the bottoms of the front struts because the tig welds had a lip on them. From driving the short distance I have with them installed two things are clear.
1. These are super smooth with weight transfer in corners.
2. I have to get bushings for the rears.... all I heard on the way home was CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK.
