Subaru WRX 2004, Slide Kontrol Coilover Kit with 0.5"-2.5" Front and Rear Body Drop by KSport®. Spring Rate: 672 lb/in (Front), 487 lb/in (Rear). With Front and Rear Camber Plates. This is a set of 4 coilovers with stiffer spring rates (and helper springs on some applications) and shock valving designed to make drifting launches easy. Lower mounts allow ride height drops without compromising suspension travel, and 36 levels of damping make it easy to simultaneously adjust compression and rebound rates to suit your driving style. Patented upper mounts allow easy adjustment of camber without the need for spacer kits, and monotube shock design prevents fluid aeration and improves handling under all conditions. Mounts and other coilover pieces are crafted from aircraft grade aluminum for light weight and freedom from corrosion. Heavy gauge steel shock absorber bodies are electroplated with zinc to resist corrosion.

KSport offers Slide Kontrol coilovers that are designed with optimal shock valving and spring rates that you need to initiate and maintain vehicle drift. First, the shock absorber element is mounted in an inverted position to ensure the fluid in the oil chamber is further away from the intense level of brake system heat buildup that occurs during drifting and aggressive driving. This design also reduces unsprung weight for improved responsiveness. Second, the shock bodies themselves feature a larger 55mm diameter in order to hold more fluid so that any heat that does build up is dispersed faster. Third, lower mounts on Slide Kontrol coilovers are crafted from steel rather than aluminum in order to provide serious strength. Like all KSport coilovers, the lower mounts allow height adjustability further down at a point which does not compromise suspension travel. So it’s easy to lower your ride height and center of gravity without the pounding that normally comes with it.
36 levels of dampening adjustment allow a wealth of choices to adjust both compression and rebound rates simultaneously. Dial in the amount of firmness you need for hard cornering or select more give for everyday driving. While most KSport coilovers feature the adjustable knob at the top of the shock, Slide Kontrol knobs are at the bottom because of upside-down placement. KSport coilovers for McPherson strut applications feature an advanced upper pillow ball mount at the top. This mount gives you the rare ability to loosen and slide the top of your strut to adjust wheel camber – without requiring a separate spacer kit the way some coilovers do. While most KSport coilovers have a rubber bushing around the pillow ball mount for vibration damping, Slide Kontrol kits substitute a steel collar in its place. A minor amount of noise may result, but you’ll benefit on the track from added strength and greater steering predictability due to the elimination of rubber squish.
Mono-tube shock absorber elements feature hydraulic oil and nitrogen in separate chambers separated by a floating piston. Because there’s no aerating of fluid within the shock body, there is no wasted time adapting to irregular surfaces – a factor that creates optimum performance under all conditions. KSport proudly backs all coilover components against failure due to manufacturing defects for a period of 18 months.
