Nice hardware. I was able to pick up a used set of these Ohlins DVFs for my 3rd gen Miata track toy, and they do live up. Run a Ohlins designed shock on my mountain bikes as well, and they have been trouble free, with extended service intervals, for 7+ years. You will be ready for some serious track day fun

Thanks!

I got the whole kit installed finally and may have a chance to test the car out today. The way these are set from OHLINS Japan (I didn't adjust the height or preload yet), the car is now siiting on stock height again. I will adjust it after taking it out for a drive.

I adjusted the height yesterday, slightly lower than the swift spring/factory shocks combo. My observations so far;
Car stays flatter (also installed hotchkis rear bar)
Less bounce, not that the swift and stock shock combo was, but I believe
that mainly it's because of the adjustable dampening. They're 36 way adjustable, I have the fronts at 25 and rears at 20. Where do you guys have yours at? Regardless of coilover brand of course.

Looks nice, I have my dampening 12F 14F counting from stiff to soft I love it. Once wheels arrive I will adjust 2 more turns towards stiff 10/12.

How do you like them seeing that you're a couple months in now? I'm thinking about getting a set.

You guys can also consider the SARD KW Suspension.
SARD Racing are using the KW hardware, and SARD have R/D for the ISF and set it up in the SARD Spec.
SARD are using different oil, damping, value and spring rate than the KW V3 or Club Sport.

I've a few customer using the SARD Spec KW Suspension on their Toyota 86 (Scion FRS), IS350 and everyone is very happy!! In Japan, Japanese have compare the SARD Spec V.S. the KW V3 and Club Sport and they are definitely not the same thing.
