I'm thinking about picking up a set of Highsport, Height Adjustable coilovers from somebody local to me. He is offering them at a very good price that is within my budget.
Now, the only thing im worried about is they (Highsport) use the Sach's structs/shocks. Does anybody have experience with them? I'm not sure how its going to handle; either too soft, or to stiff is NOT what I want. The Konigsport use Koni yellows, but those are way outta my budget.
These struts are TUV approved, as is the whole suspension kit, so it must be good, right?
Here is a quote from an importers site,
quote:[HR][/HR]FK Highsport coilovers use non adjustable Sachs shocks, shortened strut rods, double zinc plated coating on the body, anodized adjustment collars, and German TUV approval.
Highsport coilovers are height adjustable only[HR][/HR]​
They sound pretty good, so how do they actually ride? Who has the Highsport, what do you think about them?
Thanks a lot!

Re: FK Coilover Suspension Question(s). (stabb3d)

my buddy had them on his mkIII VR6 and they were pretty soft. he was dumped tho, so that has something to do with it. I'd imagine if u stay close to a 1.5-2" drop they should be good and firm, but not harsh. hopefully someone will have more concrete info for ya.

Yah? I'm not going anymore than 2", so that shouldn't be a problem. Thanks for the info!
Anyone else?

Go for the Konigsport if you can afford it... I heard the Highsport are on the soft side and not really worth getting it.
