    The standard MK2/3 front and KYB w/sleeve rear is still a great setup, I still have the original setup I built when this was first posted and have done tons of autocross events and a couple of track events, plus around 80k street miles on them. I used basic Raceland front housings. You can rebuild Raceland housings with KYB inserts, I'd have to look up the part number again but it's posted in the original Advanced thread.

    Yeah, I gathered that Will and Charlie are the ones to talk to. Ive left 4-5 messages for Will in a few different places, with no reply. And Im not sure how to get a hold of Charlie. I did leave a message on his Instagram, but havent heard back.

Will over at the Festiva store is touting the Rev9 set-up (which is unavailable ATM) And there's a Godspeed set that does the same thing (separately adjustable spring and height, with multiple damping adjustments). Is there any advantage to this. Or am I good with the $200. plain Jane Mk 2 kit and KYBs? Thanks in advance,

    Will and Charlie are the dudes to talk to. Usually active on facebook. I can say going from these thread that the KYBs are decent and have held up during our escapades with Rally though.

    I received my springs from Southwest Speed but haven't replaced them yet.
    Maybe tomorrow?
    When I am finished, I will end up with an extra set of springs.

    Does anyone know what front coilovers would be good to get this low? I got everything in this thread and completed the build of fronts and rear. Rears are spot on, drives nice etc.
    The fronts however, I can’t get this low. The shocks bottom out before it gets anywhere near close enough. It’s currently on cut springs but doesn’t ride the nicest!

    The price has incresed a lot for some strange reason. The springs now cost $50 each at Southwest. I am going to take a long shower after placing my order. I feel violated.

    Yes, the sleeves make them height adjustable

    Do the front coilovers matter as to dpecs or brands,? Will they all just work?

    What brand do people recommend?

    They are too long, the springs are too stiff, and the spring diameter is larger which limits wheel/tire width.
