Coil overs

Is there anyone out there with a coil over system on their 15? I blew a stock strut after 10,000 miles and I'm contemplating getting coil overs instead of having ford replace the strut. I'm looking at KW variant v1 and the bc coil over kit. I like the bc kit because it comes with caster/camber adjustment and compression /rebound adjustment and they're about $500 cheaper. However...I wouldn't really use the compression/rebound adjustment.

So here are my questions...

1.What c/c plates are compatible with the KW coil overs.

2. Is the bc set up hard to get dialed in with all the adjustments

3. What are your thoughts on the two choices

Sorry have nothing for you on your question.

Lol I know. There would be 50 posts and 5 arguments and it would have been closed by a moderator 20 minutes ago. And someone would have asked about it voiding their warranty.

I have BC's on my 2011 and they're really easy to dial in. It's a bit rougher then stock but stock on the S197 feels like your floating it was horrible. All in all the BC's are very user friendly for sure.

You should get one with switches bro. Like hydraulics.That way you don't have to worry about changing the height manually. If you corner balance, make sure you do it with you sitting in the drivers seat. I learned this the hard way on my 05 neon. It really effect turn in if you don't. You should check out tein coil overs.
