any feed back on Koni RSK Suspension Kit ?

i saw this in GB and i want to drop my car real soon and have been looking everywhere on what to get. first i wanted tokico illuminas/gcs. then that was too expensive for me so i wanted illuminas/h&rs. then after a while that was a bit $$ for me because i am getting impatient to drop my car! so i thought about koni reds and H&R but now i've stumbled upon these koni rsk kit. whats the difference between the shocks on this kit and the koni reds? anybody with any experiences with these? adjustability wise? i heard you can change the ride height but do i have to take it off to adjust the height? something else was adjustable but i can't think of it on the top of my head right now. any input would be greatly appreciated.

it depends how much do you want to spend-
go to the stores and start looking around- read the tread on tein coilovers- for info on stiffness and springs- other then that buy it test it and if you dont like it get a new one next year. I wanted a coilover so I can adjust the hight of the car when I get the wheels on - just for looks- other then that if you are not planning to change your wheel sizes the coilovers are useless- not like you are going to take the civic keep lowering and raising it - its pointless and everytime you adjust it you will need to do alignment.

thats my experiance- if I knew what I know now - I would just buy some good struts then buy springs and be set

I've done a little research into the RSK Kit and this is what I've found...

The RSK Kit is based around the Koni Red shocks. The Reds are rebound adjustable to 3 settings prior to being installed. You compress and turn them a certain way to select each rebound rate. I have found a special tool on Ebay which I ordered that allows you to adjust them while still on the car. I have yet to try it though (stay tuned). There is also 4 new bump stops included so you don't have to cut and re-use your stock ones.

The shocks are also ride height adjustable by moving the clips that the spring perches sit on. The height can be adjusted from 45-65 mm up front and 40-60 mm in the rear (96-00 Civic).

The springs are made by Vogtland, a German company that has been around for almost 100 years. I'm sure Koni wouldn't cut corners on the springs.

I have the Reds on my car and I'm totally happy with them. Lifetime warranty and Koni quality. Unless you absolutely need fully adjustable shocks, the Reds are perfect. I'm considering the RSK Kit for my 03 Civic.

i've read that thread before. i'm seeing how these koni's are. tokico kit is not an option because the drop is only 1.5 and in most cases it doesn't even drop that much and seems like stock. i don't want to mix and match each other because they give u bs about the warranty saying how ur car is too low. besides these springs are already perfectly matched with the struts.
