No, we have tracked the KW S/O kit on max low and have no issues to report in regards to bottoming out or anything like that.

Question... what happens to the lower mount on the front shocks (where the spring sits). Is that removed/cut out before the custom spring perch is used? (This would mean the process is not reversible.

Thanks,
Pat

We simply remove that using a press, it is 100% reversible to stock.

Where I live, I usually drive on average 120mph and up when im on the highway. Will I feel any difference driving at these speeds on the highway with this modification? I dont want to be bouncing around at 130mph....

This kit utilizes progressive rated springs when coupled with the lower center of gravity, the car should remain even more stable at high speeds. Bounciness should be a non-issue.

I'm very VERY interested in this kit for my 2011 ZCP but the high speed bounce is also a big concern for me.

On my 2008 non-ZCP I had H&Rs with swapped out bump stops. Although cornering was tighter and overall the car felt good, the bounce was noticeable especially at high speeds. When switched to the 2011 ZCP, I noticed what a big difference stock was compared to H&Rs.

Is there any additional info or elements this KW kit has that the H&Rs don't which suggest the high speed bounce issue won't happen again?

If so, I really want a set of these so bad. Thanks!

If the car is equipped with EDC and the suspension is set to comfort, there should be minimal to virtually no issues with bounciness at high speeds on the highway.

I have 15mm/12mm F/R spacers on OEM 19's running B&G springs currently and get a slight bit of rubbing on my passenger front. Will these springs on the lowest setting increase the instance of rubbing, or be similar to the rubbing that I already have? FYI, the rubbing is on the inner fender lining behind the wheel (closer to the front door) and only on 85% + turn angle.

We've never made a direct comparison in regards to the drop between the B&G springs and the KW S/O kit at MAX LOW settings...but the beauty of the KW S/O kit is you can set the height optimally to the point where there will no longer be any rubbing whatsoever...
