Bilsteins are mono tube dampers, have a read up on the dual tube dampers like the KW, they are on a different level completely
Mos, it's worth while remembering when you lower the car your wheels tuck, often a flush wheel at oem height will be sunk in the arch once lowered.
I wasn’t planning to lower much at all to be honest. One of the factors in deciding on the KW’s was the fact it can be set closest to stock height. My old si coupe I lowered, only on eibachs & scraped the fangs so often it just became unpleasant to drive.
I’m still really torn on whether to go for the KW’s & if it doesn’t fit without changing wheels, potentially have to sell the new wheels & tyres that I’ve just spent over £1500 on or just stick with stock & keep the wheels. I don’t completely hate the ride but it certainly leaves me wanting, especially coming from a 981. God I love & hate this car so much at the same time!
From the reading I’ve done, the change in handling & ride is night & day with the KW’s. So I’m leaning towards just biting the bullet, hope they fit & if they don’t, sacrifice the wheels. As much as I love them, if I’m going to keep this car as long as I hope to, having a better suspension setup is definitely more logical in the long run.
