Just a heads up for the people that are going to purchase KW Coils Over
 
As I mentioned before. A year ago I was debating between the Bilstein PSS9 and KW Var.2 Coilover suspension. And I heard there is leaking problem with the KW Coils over because of the Koni shocks. Therefore, I decided to go with the PSS9. Ok, I though they have fixed the problem. BUT, I talked to the Director of Operation of KW Suspension of North America at HIN last night. They told me that they haven't fix the problem, and they still have customer having leaking problem. Therefore, they are planning to change to AL-KO shocks after 6 months from now. So, if you plan to get the KW Var. 2 Coils, wait till they use the Al-KO shocks.

John, I don't know what your post really mean. But is that a best name shock company can't have faulty parts? Just like BMW have faulty sun roof button on the E46. (Having trouble open or close the sun roof) They still haven't fixed the problem. (At least my 1999, my friends 2000 ci and 2001 Indivual Ci still have the same problem) So, why can't Koni have leaking shock? If you don't believe me, call 1-800-530-1433 and talk to the guy at KW.
