Koni's or Ksport?

Hey so question, i have ground control coils w/stock struts. and i'm curious if it would be worth it to pick up a set of the Ksport "Kontrol Pro Damper System"(can get them for like 900 or so) or if i'd be better off just keeping my ground controls and getting a set of koni yellows to go with them??

its mainly a DD but i do some weekend autoX..

Re: Koni's or Ksport?

Well 90% of the Preludes on the autoX circuit use an adjustable strut (usually a Koni Yellow or KYB AGX) with a GC coilover spring instead of what's referred to as a "true coilover" system, such as Teins or KSports.

I don't know why this is the case, but it's been the case for a long time.

Re: Koni's or Ksport?

ya i know the adjustable strut/ground control spring combo is supposed to be pretty damn good. i'm just curious if i'd be getting a better setup with a "true coilover" system. like the Ksports ones(not the best of wording but ya)

Re: Koni's or Ksport?

My Bad, i know better isnt really the right word for that. Like i said its a DD, but i do some track, and a lot of "spirited" driving. :)
like would it be worth it to buy the true coilover setup? or better off buying a set of koni's and using the extra money towards like a sway bar?
I know a lot of this is gonna opinionated.. but ya i'm curious

This is the crux of the matter. Some claim that the best handling cars have fully adjustable coilovers all round. My opinion is that a full setup (springs, shocks, swaybars, bushes) all working in harmony (read: not just bolted on, actually set the fkers up properly) will always be better.
