KW Coilovers

Don't think was mentioned before but if it was this thread can be deleted. KW has released coilovers for our cars which I found out looking through tirerack.com. Couldn't find it on KW's website though.

Never heard of KW, but I would stick with name brands when it comes to suspension products.

KW is well known actually, so I don't understand what you mean by you would stick with name brands. They are more common with European cars. I would also say that I don't think Tire Rack would sell crap, too much of a risk.

KW is actually an extremely good coilover. I posted a while back that KW made coils for the tsx wagon and at the time i thought it was for the crosstour. Might end up working. I dont think this is actually for our cars maybe the 7.5gens. I dont know for sure though, best bet is to contact kw.

If you go to KW's website and enter the model number from Tire Rack, it comes up with nothing. Maybe it is for the 7.5 gens but that's a pretty big screw up but things happen.

KWs are awesome but i would be surprised if they actually made them for our cars since they usually go on higher euro cars

LOL wow... KW is one of the best in the market right now...

I would rock this brand over any other coilovers out there on the market anyday.

After researching, the part number is the 7th Gen part #. I don't know if I trust this working on our cars.

This variant 1 has only rear dampening adjustment. I'm assuming variant 2 has the front dampening adjustment as well, if they come out with a variant 2. If the 8th gen version comes out, I would get KW over anything else out.

Would you pick KW or BC coilovers, Schu? Or would you lay down a good bit and get custom built suspension?

I doubt he'd go any pre-built mass-produced way of suspension, but that'd be a hard decision for me. BC would probably win for the $300 price difference.

I've had friend's with some bad experiences with KW's, but heard good ones all over the forums. Throw Tein into the mix and see where you end up
