They are not available.
My rear left strut is broken and it locks my EDC at the firm setting g for a bone jarring ride.

I think it has been about 5 months now.

There are none available is the USA or Europe distribution channels. Unbelievable.

To confirm, do you have the B16 Damptronic coilovers?

Thanks L4ces.

I'm sorry to hear the dampers are causing you issue, though.

Well, other than the right rear issue I've been happy with them. The problem is availability :-( for a replacement.

They're just a tad stiffer than stock in comfort mode. Nothing too noticeable.

Yes please do share back, curious to hear how it varies between comfort mode on street and normal/sport on track. Especially given that you've had a more track oriented setup already.

Grayblack do you have a picture of your car to share as another ride height example?

ebisu8 some folks are concerned this kit might put them lower than they'd like, for the photo you shared was that at max ride height with this kit or is there more room to adjust?

Dave07997S Don't give up quite yet!

I don't think it's the same thing due to rebuilds

The Ohlins has to be rebuilt around 30k miles from what I've read here

The B16 probably will go 100k without rebuilds. At least their other stuff does that

Good point. Wonder how much "Performance Shock" shop at Sonoma Raceway charges for rebuilds for Ohlins and/or Bilsteins.
