I haven't heard many reviews on this particular brand but have heard that they are manufactured by the same company that makes the Megan Racing, D2, and Apexi coilovers. They're all basically rebadges from what I understand. A couple of my friends have the D2s and love them for daily driving.
A friend of mine has them in her Sentra. She had Megan lowering springs which were too harsh for her so she decided to make the switch. I think they ride really nice. They absorb the bumps very well which the lowering springs had a hard time doing but they can be bouncy at times though.
Here is a picture of her car..it sits realll nice though..
I had them on my 2G, too stiff for daily driving. Handling was great, but bad roads here in Cali made me get rid of it. You can only change the spring rates to be stiffer in the rear, not softer. The OTS rear rate was 375 lbs/in I believe and it made the car bouncy on bad roads. Flat smooth roads are okay, rides like stock. I now have pro kit and illumina, a little soft but better for daily driving. If you don't have any other car, I'd find somebody with them on and get a ride with them so you know before hand. Goodluck.
Yes, they were a little stiff in the rear, but they are WORTH it. for daily driving I keep them a 1/2 turn from softest in the rear, and 1 turn from the softest in the front. I also have the rear springs pre-loaded 3 full turns, and 2 full turns on the front springs. Ride height is approximately a 1/2" gap (tire to fender gap).
I am happy with the coilovers, and look forward to more use with them next season. Handling is quite nice with them.
Negatives about the coilovers: No adjustable camber plates integrated into the pillow ball mounts, and the adjustment knobs are not really "36-way" since there is no real "click"-type of adjustment--you just have to match the number of turns between each coilover.

I have a customer of mine that has them on a 240sx. He has them set to the softest settings and it rides alot stiffer than any set of lowering springs, but it doesnt bottom out as easily. In my opinion, the stiffer ride is worth it. His car handles much better than his previous lowering spring/sport shock combo.

yeah i have the ksports on my talon and damn they are stiff. I feel like im in a gokart. I have them half way to prevent rubbing on the fenders. I live in ny and the streets are killer here but boy when i take turns i dont use brakes. no roll and very good handling on the highway. Its a give and take. this is how she sits
