V1s are only height adjustable...Im mostly concerned with dampening, but I would like both....back up plan is Konis + aggressive spring if I can't find anything in my price range.

Yeah they definitely have to be "show suspension". I'll wait for the two year review.

attempted to take off the front wheel, with the jack in the center, jack stand next to it...as soon as i inserted the 4way lug wrench I noticed the car moving away from me. BOOM! on the ground and also on my leg but luckily the jack stand was under the car still...(sideways but still saving my leg from being crushed by 4,800lbs).

I would love a set of KWv2s or v3s... the deciding factor will really be $ and availability.

I was going to go raceland, but that's serious stuff! Too hardcore for me!
