K springs

I got around to installing my k springs, panhard bar, koni's and strut mounts today. Next week I'm going to install metco lca's/relo bracket and a metco uca. The metco uca is one seriously tough piece!

It's stiffer, but paired with the koni's it's not harsh at all. I haven't really driven it all that much though. I'm going to wait a couple of days before I get it aligned incase it drops a little more..

Looks great. Did the springs come with the iso's or did you go without them? Did you put the notches in or out on your mounts?

They came with the isos, and I put the arrows towards the motor. If I need camber bolts. I'm going to install some 2010 mm cc plates I have, but I figured I would try the gt500 mounts first because the mm's are a little noisy.

I can't believe how great these koni's feel. My suspension stuff actually got rid of my front lower control arm squeak. These shocks really soak up bumps much better than the factory shocks and struts.

Yeah, it's a great choice for sure. I've had k springs with other shocks and struts and it wasn't even close to this.

Looks great!! I wish I would've known about the Koni's when I lowered mine 2 yrs ago... There wasnt enough feedback on shocks and struts for 2011+ at the time... Ill have to wait for my Eibachs to wear out b4 I jump to Koni's

+1. Great dampeners. Cant beat them for the price IMO.
