AC, have you figured out what the problem is?
The problem has to be the length of the main springs. I've tried installing the new warranty replacement set and I have the same problem. An entire wasted day just because I was told to "try them out" by Adam Tormey @ KW.

I told him before that the springs are of identical height, with the same number of coils in them as my originals. He probably still thinks that I somehow installed this suspension incorrectly, even when I've had them double checked by my mechanic that they're perfectly fine.


Everyone with this problem needs to call KW (1-800-445-3767) and talk to Adam Tormey. If nobody does this, our problem will get swept under the rug! Something is obviously wrong with a batch of these ST Coilovers.
(he already told me this is one of the most popular coilover kits, and they're flying off the shelves without customer complaints)

You're supposed to install the adjuster on the top, but many have put it the other way as well. I don't see an issue either way, and installing it on the bottom doesn't make it easier to adjust IMO. That's why I installed it according to instructions on top.
