Im running the Megan racing springs with kyb gr2 struts, which is basically stock struts. I also have the 17in Mazda 6 wheels. And to me it rides fantastic and has plenty of wheel gap for normal suspension operation.

Depends on how much you want to spend on going low, ksport/d2 same thing, have pillow ball mounts for all the cambers and 32 flavers of adjustability, yonaka uses stock strut mounts and less flavor for adjustability but also cost less. Yonaka coilovers + escort strut mounts would get you the hella flush Jdm yo awesomeness, might have to remove a collar or two though.

i had ksport on my mx6, i'll just give you an idea of what it's like. i didn't get it to be as low as possible. I got them because I wanted a ride that could turn like hell. and that was exactly what i got.

but first the bad....
the adjustability is moot, because once you get it to your desired height you'll want it to stay there. if u adjust anything you have to do full alignment.

the dampening setting is pretty useless too. you can only go either hardest or max 4 clicks from hard. any softer you'll blow the shocks the first bump you go over. I've replaced 2 shocks over 2 years of ownership of my ksports.

The threads on coilovers are also a maintenance item to keep them from rusting and seizing your spring perches in place. i had to periodically jack the car up and make sure the rings are still tight and re-tighten them if need be.

And the fond memories...
i never regretted lowering my car on ksports... actually maybe i did a little bit when i had to redo everything to replace the shocks. but it was one hell of a ride in the mountains. my Audi A4 quattro on ST coilovers and 22mm rear sway bar definitely wasn't as tight as my old mx6 with the ksports and 22mm rear sway bar in the twisties. the car can turn like hell and i had all sorts of confidence to take banking turns and corners.

if you're just going for the low rider look, and do it cheap, just cut 2 rungs out of your stock springs. (OMG... did i just type that?)

but if you want a car that gets the lowered look and rule the twisties (with a bit of work), do it with ksport coilovers.

Honestly, I went with the illuminas and megan springs, sticky tires (currently slicks lulz) and a 626 rear sway. This car is absolutely amazing at handling now. Its better than my miata, but the miata is on stock suspension too

KW Variant 3. Solves 2 out of 3 problems that ghost described for the ksports. Dampening functioning actually works all across the range. Threads don't need maintaining as much as the shocks are made out of stainless steel; no rust. Very very very high quality coilover, but you'll have to pay for them. They're about twice the cost of the ksports :)

you do pay for KWs... i looked at them before i got the ST coilovers for my Audi. couldn't bring myself to pay that much for a part that goes into a 10+ year old car.

This is my set up with kyb gr2 struts and megan racing springs.


The rear sits higher than the front and I'm not sure how to make it sit level. I don't want to cut the springs because I would probably mess it all up. Any ideas?

Ok, this may sound like a noob question, so I apologize. Is the Megan racing springs applicable to both FS and LS? Every item I found for sale says 2.0 (FS) only, however every other brand would have 2.5 and 2.0 listed, unlike the Megan. I was thinking of doing tokico/Megan, but have been unable to find a place that list the LS as being compatible.
