    Ive had them on my car 7-8 months and got it quite low and there not to stiff, I have it on the ramp all the time, had it up last weekend, and no leaks at all, no knocks when driving at all either, the rears still look like new but the fronts have started to corrode, (disscoulor)abit but can easily be polished off,
    You do get what u pay for tho, a good mate or mine (Aaron) has kw v 1s on his s3 and there great, if my budget could reach I'd defoo get some
    And after my ko4 build there next o
    The list but my FKs are fine for now, I had to get them for a MOT so if they only last a year I'll still be happy,
    Hope this helps a little

    As with most things you get what you pay for. What budget did you have in mind?

    I've also got the FK adjustables and found them to be fine. ride is quite hard but not unbearable and handling was improved over the stock items. for the money they seem pretty good to me. if money was no issue then of course i'd have the best! But I'd say they seem pretty good. Vrbob on here went with AP shocks and springs for similar money and i've been in his car and they seem good too. and isn't ap just a rebranded version of weitec or something anyway so the quality will be good also..?

    I agree with this. For the money I can't fault them, I don't doubt KWs or whatever are better but they're far more expensive...
