hey everyone, im glad that your taking a look at this.

im deciding on getting some coilover for my car... reason i want em is becuase of the height adjustment. im going to need em.

anyways, i was looking at 2 types....

D2 RS racing...


The D2 Racing Sports (RS) coilover system gives car enthusiasts the ability to fully customize their suspension system. These coilover systems come with a fully adjustable 36-way monotube dampening system and custom spring rates ranging from 3 to 22 kg/mm. Ride height adjustments can be made easily with the incorporated Teflon coated spring perch and allows for vehicle drop of up to 120mm on most applications. In addition, D2 Racing Sports coilover systems also allow users to make camber adjustments with the included 6061 powder coated aluminum camber plates and upper pillow ball mounts.

All D2 Racing Sports coilover systems are CNC machined to meet high quality standards and are fully rebuildable and serviceable in the United States. With the D2 Racing Sports Coilovers, all suspension components are included in the coilover kit. Suspension components don’t have to be purchased separately, eliminating compatibility issues between spring and shock. Every D2 Racing Sports coilover system comes with a limited 1 year warranty.


This D2 Racing RS Coilover Damper Kit Ford Focus 2000-UP features:

- 36-Way adjustable rebound and dampening
- Monotube high pressure design for fade free performance
- Custom spring rates from 3 to 22 kg/mm
- Teflon coated spring perch
- Vehicle drops of up to 120mm, 90-100mm on some applications
- 6061 powder coated aluminum camber plates and upper pillow ball mounts
- Includes keys for ride height adjustment
- CNC machined
- Fully rebuildable and serviceable in the United States

Ksport Kontrol Pro



The Ksport Kontrol Pro Coilover Damper System is Ksport’s basic coilover system. It features a monotube design, 36 levels of adjustable dampening, adjustable spring perch, adjustable body, and pillow-ball mounts where applicable. With 36 levels of dampening adjustment, the Ksport Kontrol Pro Coilover Damper system delivers performance in a variety of driving condition.

All Ksport Coilover Damper systems use a monotube design in which oil and gas are separated within the same cylinder. The monotube design allows finer dampening adjustments and disperses heat better. With Ksport’s monotube design, aeration and cavitation are a lot less common, which results in a better ride.

The Ksport Kontrol Pro Coilover Damper System has designed their mounts and most pieces out of 6061 billet aluminum, allowing the kit to be lightweight, durable, and rust resistant. The steel shock body is electroplated with zinc to resist rust and the elements. The valving of each set is matched to the spring rates installed for excellent ride quality and reliability.

Front and rear pillow ball top mounts are included in some car applications as indicated, providing more responsive handling. In addition, camber adjustability is designed right onto most Ksport pillow ball top mounts, allowing you to adjust camber directly on the coilover system itself instead of using a separate camber kit.

Ksport Kontrol Pro Coilover Damper System Feature Summary:
- 36 levels of dampening adjustment
- Monotube high pressure design reduces oil leakage
- Pillow ball top mounts included for some applications
- Camber adjustability is included on pillow ball top mounts
- Made from high quality 6061 aluminum with T6 for increased hardness
- Valving of each set is matched to the springs for ride quality and reliability
- Electroplated body for protection from corrosion and rust
- One year limited warranty through Ksport

I haven't heard anything good about the D2s from someone that doesn't have a Honduh. If you are wanting something adjustable, you should look at Koni's coilovers. If adjustable dampers aren't something you need though, I would take a look at H&R's coilovers. I have had the H&Rs on two cars now, and I am always amazed how well they ride AND how flat they corner. On my Focus, I almost tucking 18x7.5s and I never rubbed on the fender (only the fender liner). On my Rabbit, about the same situation except I am riding on 18x8.5s now.

d2 and Ksport are outsourced to the same manufacturer, and both are garbage in the long run because they dont have a warrantee like the competitor's do (most are 100,000 mile or something crazy)....

I have been shopping around myself because I want adjustable ride height that goes lower than 2.2" all around, so far the only option I have found for that are the Tein coilovers for $1400....which is a bit steep for me. I am looking into SPAX though through BATinc, however I REALLY want to get a set that has the spring OVER the strut in the rear, none of that separated nonsense

[scratch] ???

Spring over the damper, maybe?

Considering my tires rub on rear damper, and the damper is close to the body, I think its a packaging thing. Not really doable.

H&R, Bilstein, and KW are the only kits that will ever touch a car I own.

Not really, a strut implies that the damper also doubles as a link in the suspension. So only a Macphearson Strut suspension has "Struts".

I have not seen a kit with "true" coilovers in the rear that I would EVER put near my...They are all poorly designed at best. Don't look at just the numbers on the coilover kits for the drops either. The H&Rs on my Focus put me at about a 3" drop front and rear.

F2 has a kit that puts a coil spring over the shock body on the rear that fits most applications, so I'll most likely be going H&R or something of the like and getting the f2 kit for the extra $225 to get what I want.
