Chappy Posted April 4, 2006 Share Posted April 4, 2006 After a couple of weeks of tweaking and adjusting I think I finally have my KW V2's where I want em. Kelly was great with me from Racecomp Engineering in getting these very quickly and answering all my questions and addressing my concerns. My intial impression of them was that they were firm but not stiff which I liked. After a couple of weeks of settling they still feel the same. They are huge improvement over stock in terms of body roll and confidence in taking turns at speeds that I wouldnt have thought of before. Heavy bumps hit hard but they are not jolting. The KW's absorb very well. I have the preload set to 1.5 turns and that seems perfect. The rear end it very stable and planted. It does not get loose very easily. I had TDC Tuning do the install and it did not take very long. They used my stock tophats. Install maybe took 2 hours. I had a DP done as well so everything was done in about 3. I would definately recommend these for someone looking for a very firm ride. They are great on the highway and give a very stable feel up past 100. They are not floaty and will not give you a Cadillac type ride. They are very quiet. Overall no complaints at all. Racecomp was great to deal with and the KW brand seems to be well established and they make a very impressive product. I would no hesitate buying these again. Here are some before and after pics. My wheels are SSR 17x7.5 with 225/45's.
