The KW V3's are both dampening and rebound adjustable and might be a bit more than you really need or have the time and energy to set up properly. I would recommend the V2's which are rebound...

Yup!

I put BBS RGR's on my ride and they weigh 7lbs each less than my stock Type 96 7-spokes. With my KW's the ride and handling are awesome. Less unsprung weight is always good! :thumbup:
