***UPDATED W/Photos*** Just ordered Ksport coil overs 2011 MZ3 2.5L..what to expect..

Well I've had it all in for about 2 weeks now...took about 1.75 inches (maybe slightly less) out of the ride height, ride is nice, not too firm for daily use but you can definately feel the stiffer dampening from the shock settings ...wheels are a 18x8.5 w/ 225/40/18 which some may feel conservative it again I daily the car and do the occasional spirited drive up a hill or through a canyon here in SoCal... I haven't really pushed this set up yet to see what it can really do...right off the bat the understeer and body roll is gone, I could easily take another .5 out of the ride height but I'd probably have to roll the fenders and deal with adjustable camber links which I didnt need to do with this ride height setting (yet...probably won't either)
