Shot! Front right wheel bounces like a basket ball. Does any one have recomendations for an alternative replacement? This is the second Kbee to crap out on me.

you can get the replacement cartridge i have them or the kws have a lifetime warranty but then your stuck trying to sell a coilover set up which one is shot and seems you have the worst luck with them.

Why would I try selling a defective part to someone? I just want a reliable strut.

I guess my question should be what are the urban drivers running?

you had it in for 30k miles things wear out and no coilover last forever. You just replaced the last one few months ago its fine so it comes down to long term. You can replace the cartridge and are set to go or you can spend the loot for the kw front coilovers which have a lifetime warranty.

If somethign does go wrong with the kws you would have to send them to me and i would send them to kw they would visually see it and test it and then ship it to me for verifications then I would ship it back to you. The entire process from the time they get it to when I get it takes about 8-10 business days and then the time on shipping from you to me and me back to you about about another 5-7 business days. So you will be without a truck for 2 weeks at minimum unless you put a kbee back in to get you by.


Others here had the kbees in a few cases of 50-80k from my first gb in 06 and had no problems and I run 9 clicks on the street and 2 clicks at the track..

Tony when you say 9 click and 2 clicks, do you mean from the softest or most firm setting?
