KSport or Function & form?

So I have been wanting to upgrade my suspension and want some good coil-overs and have the chance to buy some K sport with about 3k miles( I was told) and or some Function & form type 1. Which one you guys think is better? Let me know and also I don`t want to have camber wear. So what camber kit do you guys think is good and relatively not 2 expensive? Ingalls or what else? Thank you

F&F for sure. I have an SPC front/rear camber kit... love it. Get your alignment and camber/toe setup by a reputable shop after you install the coilovers. Install time in your home garage with basic tools is about three hours.

Re: KSport or Function & form?

Ksports go lower. For F&Fs you'd have to switch to OEM tophats for more low, therefore voiding any warranty.

Not sure if that matters to you or not.

Also, natural camber will be fine. It's TOE that causes bad tire wear.

Make sure you get it aligned after installing whichever set you get. Tell them to do their best to get it as close to stock specs as they can because the natural camber will not be able to be completely corrected without a camber kit. But, again, camber does not cause uneven tire wear.

They should be able to get the TOE to OEM spec regardless.

Do your research.

BC Racing are among the top brands, if not the best but you will be paying quality prices for quality parts.

that`s right.

Thanks to everyone. Yeah I know I have been looking at the function and forms but a deal came up and I`m thinking about it... KSports go for 900 when function and form go for 650. The K Sports will run me $$$450 with the box it came in and everything with warranty the seller said. SO what you guys think for that price? He said low mileage about 6 months/3k miles on them.

Re: KSport or Function & form?

it's up to your man. the only things you really have to worry about is if they were installed/removed properly before and if the previous owner beat the living piss out of them

Yeah make sure he sends you new, dated detailed pictures so you can see what condition they're in. Otherwise, that's a great deal.
