Anyone riding on ST coilovers? Ride quality?

http://www.stsuspensions.com/product...kit-14429.html

They are suppose to be same valving/springs as V1 and made by KW. Only thing is its galvanized zinc instead of Stainless steel body.

Priced very well.

I would be if they actually fit the sway bar link of my 2014. All i can say right now is they look nice in the box and say kw right on them.

The front endlink you mean? Why doesn't it fit?

It's only big enough for the old smaller one to pass through. they changed the front sway bar when they switched to the electric rack.

I have a 2010 with the FE4 conversion and BMR sway bars. Would these fit?

Did you take pics of them making contact?

I don't even need to. I recently needed to drill an older set of struts (2010) in order for them to fit my 2014 sways. Its a significantly larger hole, i think they went from a 14mm to an 18mm. I could take a pic of the difference between the two since both are off my car. I would be interested to know if i could run smaller links. Not ideal but might be better than drilling.

Thinking out loud but what if if grabbed these?:

They look like they come with a washer that would allow them to work with the larger bar? I'm not sure.

Went for 10mm stud to 12mm stud. Looks a lot bigger but it is only 2mm. I have drilled out a few struts to accommodate the newer sway bars with no issues.

Yes, exactly. I'm working with kw right now and I'm waiting to see what they officially recommend. Odd thing is they sent me install instructions that originally planned on utilizing a bushing to accommodate both 10 and 12mm setups but mine doesn't have that design.

Any chance you could post a pic of the coilover set? Can't find any real images online. Thanks man
