Any plans for new shocks n struts to go with these springs? Love the idea of keeping Edc. Is the handling going to be improved noticeably? I like the zcp ride height in the rear but would like a 1 or 2 mm drop in the front. How do you adjust? I saw the wrench, do you have to pull the wheels?

This sleeve-over kit was designed to work in conjunction with the OEM shocks with no detrimental effects. As such, replacing the shocks/struts is not necessary.

The handling will definitely be improved over stock due to a lower center of gravity, however...the ride comfort will be very close to stock due to the use of progressive rated springs.

The adjustment of this kit requires the removal of the wheels and and you simply adjust the height using the provided adjustment tools. The rear adjustment is a bit trickier and requires a spring compressor to adjust properly, we recommend a professional do this.

Here's some more pics from another install. This time on an E92 M3.

















The customer wanted 1.5 finger gap in the front, and 1 finger gap in the rear, so we adjusted it accordingly. To reiterate, after the springs have fully settled, there should be an additional 3mm of lowering.

We were able to measure the differences in the bump stops...here's some pics for your reference.

KW S/O kit was installed on our project MR E92 M3 and tracked at MFEST this past weekend. Darwin will post a detailed technical review of how it performed on and off the track.

In the meantime, here's some pics...



Height lowering adjustment is maxed out F/R. Suspension is fully settled in.

Maxed out lowering adjustment F/R. Suspension has been fully settled in on the drive down from Bay Area to Vegas.

We wanted to test out the max lowering on this KW S/O kit. Surprisingly even on max lowering adjustment, the ride is relatively comfortable for street driving.

The ride comfort should be very close to OEM and comparable to simple spring solutions such as the Eibach ProKits.

Doesn't look like you have enough posts for PM. Please email me at cal@sonicms.net for a price.

sorry for the dumb question but I remember reading that handling could be compromised if you lower coils to the max settings, is that true with this kit as well?
