Do Not, I Repeat Do Not Buy K-sports

I purchased the k-sports for my s14 about 3 months ago, I heard that they are to bouncy so I bought them anyways, I put less than 1000 miles on them, never tracked it and guess what they F!!CKIN' blew. I noticed fluid dripping from under my car and thought it was my brake line so I checked it out and my brake line was cool then I looked at my suspension, freakin caked with fluid from a seal breaking. So pass the word, I dont care how inexpensive they are....DO NOT BUY THIS CRAP!!!!!

Yeah they got 1 year warrenty I still got all the receipts. My homie got megans tracks and he had no prob yet but I say if your going to drift get inverted monotube. I am not going to trust anything under $1000 again. Wise man said "you get what you pay for"

i hear nothing bad about megans, but nothing great.

in my opinion, save up a little more and get KTS, stance or silkroad.

I would disagree with you there. Teins are mediocre at best and I have had gobs of experience with all different models. Yes, better than ksport by a long shot, but certainly nothing special and you pay a little extra for the name. For cheap stuff, I had good experience with BC Racing and KTS.

As for the K Sport....they are a cheapy brand. This is going to happen every once in a while, but it not the norm. The bigger issue with them is their performance. Can be better off with a good set of fixed perch dampers and springs. Megans are certainly better, but not steller either. BC and Stance are probably about even and about the cheapest coilovers I would every recomend.

That all said, I would agree with the posters original satement, but not for the same reasons.
