Ksport Slide Kontrol Drift Coilover Kits provide the ultimate in suspension technology featuring 36 levels adjustable damping, inverted shock design on most applications, adjustable spring perch, adjustable body and Pillow-ball mounts. The Ksport Slide Kontrol Drift coilover kit has been designed to endure the extended abuse and extreme handling-load of drifting.
Pillowball Top Mounts
Pillow ball top mounts in the front and rear on some applications allow the vehicle to install and setup to OEM specifications. Ksport’s patented upper pillow ball mount offers the same level of adjustability and performance but allows for compliance that is often required from high-demand strut applications.
On applicable models, the pillowball upper mounts offer camber adjustment, saving the need for a special, separate camber kit. For enthusiasts seeking the ultimate in adjustability, Ksport’s advanced upper pillow ball mount is available on some applications, giving the option for separate camber and caster adjustment.
Adjustable Lower Mounts
Most applications utilize an adjustable lower mount, which means height adjustability without losing suspension travel—a problem found in many coilover systems available today. Since mounts and most pieces in the coilover system are designed from 6061 billet aluminum, the components are lightweight, durable, and rust resistant.
Protection Against Corrosion
Steel shock bodies are electroplated with zinc to resist rust and protect from the elements. The shock or strut valving for each piece is matched accordingly to the spring rate, giving superior ride quality and reliability.
Superior Ride Quality & Reliability
The Ksport system uses a Monotube design in which the oil and gas are separated within the cylinder. When compared to twin tube construction, the Monotube design dissipates heat faster and more evenly, allows finer damping adjustments, and requires more expensive design process. Aeration and cavitation issues are a lot less common in a Monotube design, which results in a more consistent ride quality.
Inverted Steel Shock Absorber for Increased Response and Heat Build-Up
Vehicles with McPherson suspension will come standard with inverted front shocks whereas wishbone/a-arm type vehicles will come with standard non-inverted type shocks. Inverted shocks move the gas/oil chamber farther away from the knuckle and braking kit reducing heat transfer. This design also reduces unsprung weight which helps improve handling and responsiveness. NOTE: on inverted shocks the damping knob is at the bottom of the shock. Each kit is supplied with a flexible damping adjustment knob for easier access.
Stiffer Spring Rates and Shock Damping
Slide Kontrol damper kits are configured with about 30-50% stiffer shock damping compared to the Kontrol Pro kit. Stiffer spring rates assist in better initiations while drifting. Helper springs are included in certain applications depending on spring length and shock stroke.
Large 55mm Shock Bodies
Slide Kontrol coilovers with inverted type shocks feature large 55mm shock bodies. This allows for added oil capacity for increased cooling efficiency. They also perform better under stress situations which make them perfect for track events.
Heavy Duty Steel Lower Mounts
McPherson suspension type vehicles feature increased strength steel lower mounts. Also, standard are brake line and sensor brackets. Steel is slightly heavier than aluminum but offers much stronger protection under stress situations.
All Metal Pillowball for Added Strength and Responsiveness
A step up from our Kontrol Pro coilovers, the heavy duty all steel pillowball adds more strength and better steering response. You may experience slightly more noise with this type of pillowball, which is completely normal when compared to OEM suspension where noise is reduced by using rubber parts. Our patented new top nut and bearing kit helps combat noise while turning at slow speeds unlike other coilovers on the market.
36-Way Adjustable Damping
All Ksport coilovers offer 36 levels of damping which allow you the ability to perfectly dial in your coilover kit. Set damping to full soft for a nice comfortable cruising setting for normal driving.
Collars and Upper Mounts Made from 6061 Aluminum with T6 for Increased Hardness
Our spring perches, locking collars, top mounts and some lower mounts are made from high quality 6061 aluminum. Benefits include excellent strength and aluminum helps reduce weight.
Adjustable Spring Perch for Height Adjustment
Some vehicles have a separate rear shock and spring. In the coilover industry we call this a “hi-low kit”. In this case you will adjust ride height via the spring. Adjustable lower mounts on the rear shock aid in setting the correct shock stroke. Vehicles with this type of set up can still go as low or lower than true coilovers.
Adjustable Lower Mount Allowing Maximum Suspension Travel
Most of our coilovers feature the ability to adjust your ride height without affecting the shock and spring travel. This way you can set your desired ride height without having to worry about bottoming out the shock.
Camber Adjustment on Many Models
Many of our applications that have pillowball upper mounts also have camber adjustability. This is extremely helpful when you need to dial in your camber for vehicle alignment purposes. This also eliminates the need for a separate camber kit. NOTE: Camber adjustment is not available on all models with pillowball upper mounts.
Monotube High Pressure Design Reduces Oil Leakage
All of our coilovers use Monotube shocks which dissipate heat better, allows finer damping adjustment and requires a more expensive design process compared to twin tube shocks.
Electroplated Body for Added Protection from Corrosion and Rust
To help prevent corrosion and rust from the elements of nature, all our coilovers are electroplated with zinc. We also include an anti-rust paste packet with our kits that can be applied to certain key areas of the coilover for added protection.
Dust Boot to Protect Damper Seal
Dust boots are standard on all coilovers. We also integrate the bump stop inside the dust boot. This is more efficient and is less likely to crumble to pieces and deteriorate like other company’s designs.
12 Month Limited Warranty
Slide Kontrol coilovers come standard with a 12-month warranty which covers manufacturer defects.
