That's a huge difference in price. Do you need the height adjustment? If not, save your money and do the springs. I'd suggest doing a spring/shock replacement however as your factory shocks will not withstand the firmer spring rate for long.

I dont think I need to drop the back much at all. But the front needs a drop bad. I'm gunna roll the fenders in the rear, but I cant roll the front because they are plastic. So I'm worried that the springs would drop to much and cause the front to rub...

The KW's will let me adjust if it goes to low in the front. Thats why I'm going towards the KW's.

Seems like you are answering your own questions. If cost is an issue, then you can also look into the KWv1's.

I love my kw v2's so far. The adjustments are easy to make as well. Worth the cost, IMO.
