Great review, Doyle!

I'm trying to decide between the TC Kline's or a Bilstein/H&R Sport Spring setup. I don't plan on tracking my car, I just want to have a sportier feel driving around town that isn't too harsh and lower the ride height.

Can you adjust the ride height of the TC Kline's while they are still on the car? Or would I have to take it to the shop? I live in Minneapolis and may want to raise it up a little bit during the winter, which is why a coilover setup is appealing. I'm trying to decide if the ~$850 more for the TC Kline's is worth it.

I just installed the TC Klines on my car they ride awesome, I think there worth the extra money. You can adjust them yourself, they come with wrenchs all you need to do is jack the car one wheel at a time. The front can be done with out removing the wheel, the back may be easier by removing the wheel HTH.

Just installed, went with recomended springs, etc from Harold at HP Autowerks. Weather is keeping me from really testing this out yet, but vehicle feels very tight so far. Also did m3 rear subframe bushings. Instal went well per mechanics.

Really wanted to say that Harold's customer service throughout this project has been awesome!!!! Harold is knowledgeable, and has been quick to respond to my questions even through the holidays when he was on vacation. I highly recomend purchasing, and if in the area, installing through him.
