Awesome Bob! I think I will go this route with the koup when I need to replace these. Did this make the ride noticeable firmer/harsher?


Firmer, yes. But less harsh than stock.

do you switch back and forth from the ksports to stock like I do for winter? Funny enough, it took longer to get the billy's put together with the mounts and springs than it did to jack the car up, remove the tires and swap the entire suspension!

yes yes i do. i did it early last month. put the snows on over a week ago.


ive got about 20K on my ksports i am going to send the front cartridges back to be rebuilt since the adjusters are frozen inside and i cant spin them. stupid mistake on me... the ksports have been wonderful. halfway through the season i had a few pros clue me in that my front end should be a little softer it will tune out the rest of my understeer. i was running 18F 26R . i want to run 10F 26R lol.

I sent mine in to FEAL for a rebuild/revalve. ( http://fealsuspensionstore.com/home/ ) Well worth the money. Where before I was running almost full soft up front, I know start in the middle of the 4,356 clicks and have better control. Still thinking about sending in the rear shocks to FEAL with the springs and corner weight of hte car to have them rebuild them, but I run them full stiff anyway so not sure it matters a whole lot.

This winter the car gets new filled engine mounts, poly compliance bushings up front, header, cat and tune. I'll be shooting for 170NA whp and I definitely want that extra 700 rpm. SHould put second gear topping out at just shy of 68mph if I did the math right. PErfect for Nationals length/size courses.

Speaking of... when you coning out to Nats?

170hp should be easy with the 2.4 .

wow for the price i will strongly consider FEAL instead of KSPORT! but i really need the piston assy replaced since its rusted inside. not just the gooey bits.


maybe 2017/18 laugh.gif getting married in the spring then a house after that.

First shipment of awesome just arrived. HEader has shipped from Korea and on it's way. Cat and tub of 80A goo for the mounts. STill to order are the control arm bushings from Whiteline and header wrap. Once installed I'll get an appointment with BTR to tune this puppy. That will be all available engine/power mods I am allowed per class rules. Intake, every bit of the exhaust and tune.

High flow cat.

So one of these days I want to talk with you about suspension options on the hd.

are you doing the two pair up front or just the fat LCA bushes? i'm going to get the caster correcting fat rear ones and maybe replace the smaller front ones down the road.

The forte has the compliance bushings up front (vertical bolt) and the swing arm bushing in the rear (horizontal bolt). I'm doing just the compliance bushings. I wouldnt touch them if the right one was 2/3's ripped through and the left about 1/2. couple hundred hard launches will do that I guess laugh.gif

Talked to a co-worker who is from Korea. She says coming post it typically takes a week to get stuff in. So excited!

I considered the caster correcting ones, but I can't say that I need them. With the combo K-sport + MEgan tophats the caster is pretty good.
