Also, at this point you'll feel the suspension tramp pretty harshly on normal streets, also something I did not like. Funny thing is, I'm thinking of putting on Eibach Pro Kits on the new M vs. Sleeves.

Are they becoming too soft for you and is the Eibach height not low enough? I see you have the Pro Kit.
Thanks for the input. No, I don't think the Pro-kit is too soft. The ride quality is very similar to OEM without the high speed bounce seen with other lowering springs. Yes, the Pro-kit could be about 10mm lower IMO. And the ability to counter balance and adj ride height would be even better. Which shocks were you using the KW's with (EDC or non-EDC)?
