K-Sport Coilovers are INSTALLED!

My truck has been at Bwoody since Wednesday getting parts installed and one of those parts is the K-Sport Coilovers! Since I am not home to take pics of everything I took the pics from T-time's thread on the red site to give you guys on this site a glimpse of how they look.












Again these pics were not taken by me, they were taken by Jeff(T-Time) and I am just sharing the photos with the site that made the GB happen.


I am gonna call Mike at Bwoody and see if he can take some installed pics and send them to me or post them here. He said they went on easy and when they first put them on the front tires were tucked all the way under the fender all you could see was the rim. I can't wait to drive my truck with these installed! At the latest I will get some pics up on Thursday. Sorry for the lack of info, just wanted to help the community out.

Well Rob, I sure do appreciate it and am fairly certain that George has other sets that people need sold since they want their refunds. I will keep you up to date with reviews on them....If you answer my calls! LOL!

Re: K-Sport Coilovers are INSTALLED!

Please give details on how it rides...I'm mostly interested if it can be dialed in to be plush!

I want to hear about ride as well as from my experience, the bwoodys on the factory bilsteins givde it a sick stance, so i dont see where that could really be improved upon unless these can go LOWER

Ride is a bit stiff but what do you expect from a performance suspension setup? I hope to hear that the adjustability is good so you can have smooth or stiff when you want pending situation

You get to do whatever you want is the advantage. You can make both sides even. Being able to raise and lower them depending on the weather will also be nice. I am starting a coil over thread with before and after measurements.
