The only thing close to that name I've heard of is RK Sport, and they make stuff for college girls' cars.

I've been researching this, and from what I've read Ksports are better than Omni's and Teins in terms of quality.

I'll post some secondhand knowledge about K-Sport vs. Tein. I've heard K-Sport coilover kits are better than the typical Ground Control style kits, but that they are lesser in quality than a Tein kit. Since I've never even used a lowering spring kit, I obviously have no experience. :1

i've never rode on any k-sports, but i've rode in plenty of cars with tein and omni's and tein's are a MUCH better ride than the omni's. i even know a couple people that bought omni's and took them off within a few weeks to put tein's on. i honestly don't see how it could get any better than the tein's, but like i said, i've never personally rode on the k-sports.

I like my Ksport coilovers. 9Kfront, 11krear spring rates.....whatever that translates to in lb./in. higher in the rear to overcome all that damn udnersteer

At first impression when I opened the box, craftsmanship was great, but not perfect. The ride is very tolerable at full soft or full stiff. I ride full stiff all the time becuase my hour drive to work has some very nice and entertaining twistys. This was the first modification I did to the car and quite honestly, I wouldnt have spent the $800 any other way. compared to entry/mid level teins, id say they are on par, but when you start spending bigger bux, hands down teins will blow these out of the water.

The problem with suspension products is....all people can give you is opinions. what i say rides nice, others will say is complete ----, and vice versa. I contacted a few vendors, and took several rides in vehicles with different setups before i made my decision.
