Is anyone familiar with K2 coilovers for the xB?? I ordered a set cause they seem to have a lot of cool features like 36 way adjustability and front camber plates.......and it was a great deal:eek: :D

I'm wondering how much adjustability in the ride height there will be and how they ride, etc. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

Ah, Sh!T !!! Man, I saw them yesterday, it was a good price (now I know why) and I jumped on the deal....Too late to back out now cause they're on their way....Oh well, I'll pray that the workmanship is good....I read that they were identical to D2s which I thought was made in Japan....BOO ME!!!

Yeah alot of compaies today are trying to be JDM but are made else where. For example, Drag wheels Say they are enginieered in Japan and made in Taiwan. Some people think they are JDM but they arnt. I hope the ride will be cool. 36 way adjustable is gonna take a while to get dialed in. Probably start at 12 and work your way softer or stiffer. If you need them installed hit up my work for cheap price. Well make your shizz slamed like mine!

I had D2s, and if they're knockoffs or something, you can go as low as you want up front and adjust the spring rates seperate. The 36 way adjustable is really infinately adjustable and I found that two turns away from full stiff was the best ride for me :)

Cool, it sounds like you enjoyed your D2s? Ok, 2 turns from full stiff, that'll definitely help in trying to dial them in, thanks superjeer.

Cutting involved?? I hope not cause the word is that they will be at my door on either Friday or Saturday. I really wanted to have them installed for the big Willow Springs event this Sunday so I'm hoping it's an easy install cause I've never installed coilovers before...

my D2 should be in today, and hopefully installed by friday.
i'll have jason aka "scvscions" install the setup at his shop, and while he's at it, we may just install the new slotted drilled rotor.

i p/u my set @ NLMOTORING
i believe the price was about the same.

once i get it all set, i'll post pics.

eric, if you're in da hood, stop by. i gotta check it out yo!

Daaamn!! Dumping the GS!! I didn't see you out there but that Lex is looking right man. If I knew you were there, I woulda stopped by, damn...Island MS is supposed to do the install but if I get the coilovers on late Friday or Saturday, I'll probably be in the garage trying to figure that shizz out so I'll keep my eyes open for your box. Thanks man, I just might hit you up for some help on them.
