I just bought a set of these and wanted to post a few observations:
My set came with zinc planting instead of powdercoating on the front tubes. This still needs to be removed before welding because the fumes are toxic.
The front coilovers are 12.3 lbs and the rear are 12.25 lbs. This is without the spindles which after being cut for me were 6.6 lbs.
The spring rates out of the box appear to be 8kg/mm and 6kg/mm although they don't have any documentation. The front springs have 11.5-180 written on them which is the wire diameter x the free length of the spring. The rear spring is 10.5-205. (these numbers are from memory)
I see that someone said their set came with dyno plots, mine did not. They came set to full hard.
I went to disassemble them and actually broke my 5mm hex socket, so the installation torque on the front camber plates appears to be fairly high. I was able to remove the rears. I weighed everything I could individually to estimate sprung versus unsprung mass but have it on my other computer so if someone actually wants to see that post here and I'll try and remember to dig it up.
My initial calculations indicate for what I'm going for I need 11kg/mm front springs and 9kg/mm rear springs however I'll get some more data from the car and revise these numbers accordingly. The challenge will be finding swaybar options.
