KW Clubsports

Just got my KW Clubsports Installed with Macht Schnell 12mm front 10mm rear! These are some pictures I got after the install from the shop, but I haven't seen it in person/driven it yet Ill have to wait until Monday. I will be taking better pictures soon, and I am thinking about going lower. Opinions?





Updated with some new pictures! Thinking about either lowering the front slightly, or raising the rear slightly, as the rear is currently sitting lower. (proper shoot coming soon)

That's a nice height. Any lower and your rears would start rubbing and you would have too much rake.

The current height already looks fantastic. Lower=impractical. I ran my car at your approximate height and I was rubbing on driveways, speed bumps, etc. Test the current height before you go any lower.

That looks nice. Looks same height as mine with clubsports. These setting are actually pretty high. The rear is probably close to max height.

Take it back to get it looked at. I just had mine installed by MRF engineering 3 weeks ago. No noises at all. Just as quiet as stock.

I am going to check it. one of my friends thinks the shock is "bottoming" out under that load. I mean the rear is low but not THAT low...

Your height looks identical to mine both front and rear. I do not think you are bottoming out. My settings are midpoint front and 1/4" from max height on rears. My rears were actually lower than yours until i raised them for more rake. Never heard a peep.

However, looks great!

thanks! Yeah i do not think it is bottoming out either. hopefully someone else here may chime in knowing what specifically might cause the popping sound under that load. otherwise i am going back end of week to double check everything anyway.

I think the last page of installation manual clearly states that the lower rear spring support should be at the bottom end of the spring. I would check that out first. There must be a reason the mention that part at the end.
