The struts on the gen1's commonly go bad. The gen2's have different manufacture from Germany I believe. And just under the strut mount there are some differences as well, gen1 looks like a flat "top hat" and gen2 is more of a cone looking "top hat". The good thing is that when you buy replacement struts they only sell the v2's...$110/strut.
lol It is alot O cash but for the adjustability and quality it's not too bad. The Tokico Iluuminas are $153ea...of course you can run springs or coilovers on the Tokico's. The cool thing about the Ksports is that you adjust the height by turning the very bottom and you leave the spring uncompressed, just tight enough so it doesn't flop around... if you want to slam it then you would probably have to compress the spring some.
Sooooooo, are you getting a klde? why not just slap that bitch in there now, and build up your fs how you want, then roll with the fs for a while [fizzle] around with the tune and what not, then mess around with a de, you will have two shells shouldn't take much to straighten out that green shell.
Sounds good...the earlier the better. Deedz...just got home from work...I might try to get my lazy ass up early tomorrow and see if I can swap out in a couple hours before I have to leave to go up North. I'll let you know if I can bring the Tokico's or not.
