Default Are K sport users happy

I'm really considering getting a crosstour but only if lowering an awd isn't going to be a headache down the road . I have a BMW and its on bilstien coilovers and I've gone through warranty three times in a span of four years so I'm quite worried about using coilovers again . Any usefull comments and thoughts are very much appreciated . Thanks

As far as coilovers go I really wouldnt use them on a crosstour. There are not enough support mods for such a xtream mod. H&R lowering springs and some good shock and struts will work fine.

I've had the K Sport coilovers on for a couple months now and havn't had any issues yet? rides nice at the baseline setting.
i have my winters on right now with the stock rims, and ordered a set of Vossen 20" for the summer that i cant wait to put on.

Has anyone added coilovers and been able to have the camber corrected?

Seriously thinking about the Ingalls Alignment Kit (35623) for 2010/2011 crosstour. http://http://www.ingallseng.com/356...r-toe-kit.html

Anyone have any experience with this one?

ive had mine for over a year now, they are starting to rust a bit, so at this point i dont even care about mine anymore, but its because its a daily drive.

Get a fair bit of snow in Calgary, so the winters def wear on the coils. i was told to put something on it, but this wasnt till recently i was told. So i havent bothered, nor do i know what it is.

As for camber kits, i chose not to fix it. due to the fact that i didnt want to mess other things up in the car, rather spend the money on tires then to have something like my AWD messed.

Ive also swapped parts with TL for a few months... wasnt low enough for me, gave a raked look, which was okay.. but the wheel gap in the rear of the car made it look stupid.

I believe K-Sport only has 1 yr warranty..
