Basically want peoples views on the above brands or any reputable coilover make, which have to be height adjustable Front & Rear and prefrably dampness adjustable.

Vehicle is PD150 Anniversary.

H&R and Bilstein (although popular and very good) seem to be overpriced in my view, unless people know where to get them extra cheap?

Not sure about whether you can control their 'dampness!'.. that's probably entirely to do with the inclement weather conditions!!! [:D][:D]

As for damping.... Sorry bud couldn't resist[:eek:)]

Personally of the 3 you mention go with the KW. They use koni dampers, and their aint much better than that.[:D]

KW's have the 4wd front mount on the strut so you can then use an R32/S3 front ARB to stop that nasty rubbing!

I have KW's and like them! Not harsh at all... rears are only off car adjustable though

Does anyone know how to adjust the Rears on the FK kit, is it also off cas adjustment like the KW's.

Cage will the H&R uprated anti roll also mount on the KW Strut?

I've got the FK's fitted to my R and love them. Not too crachy if you know what I mean.

To adjust the damping on the rears you need to remove the shock.

What is the difference between the FK Highsport Coilovers & the Konigsport Coilovers versions?. Which will go lower or are they both the same height?.

They both have the same massive height range.

The highsports are FK total units wheras Konigsports use the Koni shock

Highsports are only height adjustable - konigsports are height and damping adjustable

off the car adjustment.. for rear :(

KW variant 3's would have on-car adjustment would'nt they?

I think it's because the rears aren't struts so you can't get to the top from inside the car. I had the external adjuster knobs on the AVO's and they end up seized.

You can adjust the rears both sides in about 15mins once you have done it once.. don't know about the V3's... they are bump and rebound adjustable though.

H&R bar would fit the same way as the normal ARB with the hoops.
