I noticed that they had a spary called PSK that reduces the corrosion. I was thinking about coilovers but heard about people ending up with jammed coilovers. Has anyone evertried the PSK or any similar spray to keep the coilovers from seizing due to salt and other outside elements?

I'd rather use a light coat of anti-seize compound instead. :thumbup:

Yeah, I've installed a few suspensions over the past year or so.

Hrmm...

1. I'd highly recommend using airtools on the spring compressors so you don't wear yourself out taking off the front springs.

2. It's helpful and safer to have a partner helping you during the install.

3. The KW's are pretty easy to install since you really do not need spring compressors to get the front springs on.

4. Take your time. Don't rush and don't force anything. If you feel like your are pushing, pulling, yanking, or banging too hard on something...there's a good chance you are.

5. Make sure you disconnect the xenon autoleveling servo arm before you begin the front suspension work.

6. Having some heavy duty plastic tie-wraps will come in handy when the front brake assembly is free from the front strut. You can tie it to the brake line bracket so you have your hands free to work. You'll know what I'm talking about when you get to this point.


That's what I can think of off the top of my head. Just use your head and common sense and you'll be fine. Suspension work isn't that difficult.

Good luck :D
