Suspension for my vert" what should I get?
 
I wanted to buy the KSPORTS coilovers but I can't find any feedback on them...

I have Koni FSDs with my stock sport suspension springs. I didn't want to go too firm or want to deal with rattles on rough pavement. I'd say I accomplished both; forgiving ride on rough pavement plus it firms up nicely when I step on it.

Were you able to install those on your own? If so, was it difficult?

It's not too difficult, you will need a spring compressor. There are a number of posts in the general section, just search. I found that compressing the springs while under the car helped the shock top to clear the fender. Also, the passenger side front is a little more tricky due to the headlight control lever (I have Xenons). I did it last Spring so I am a little foggy on the details. If you are careful, you won't need a re-alignment (I didn't). I also suggest replacing all the shock mounts.

Thanks, I was curious if anyone was running PSS 10's. I've been leaning towards those myself.
