You know from work I previously did for you that I encourage people to make their best deal on parts, and I will give you the best deal on installation. I don't sell parts, so I have no particular brand to push. .........and when someone quotes you an "installed price" always ask how much less would the price be if they don't install the item.

I looked over these more than once. I can give you some opinions, and you might have to call the mfg's to get a couple specs...............that way you can compare each feature equally across each mfg................or someone else who reads this
can call and ask......
---------------------------------------------------------------
The things I like about K-sports for your car is that they have a dial on top of the center shock bolt that allows fine adjustment (36 settings!) to soften/harden the dampening .........Buddy Club actually tells you how much the damper rate adjustment is (4km per mm either harder or softer),

The pillow ball on top allows a lot less friction as the spring rotates slightly under compression/extension.........that's a lot smoother action than the friction created when a spring doesn't rotate as it compresses/extends. The adjustable camber plates at the shock top are easier to get to, and are my favorite way of camber adjustment compared to sliding a ball joint back and forth in the a-arm while tightening some screws. I know someone who does track days in his Mazda and he says Ksports are VERY tunable to the track and resetable for the street................If the mfg doesn't include the actual coil spring (ask if they do), we can use the coils that you are currently running. Call Neuspeed and ask what the spring rates are for what you currently have to compare with 660front/440rear that is stated with Skunk2.
