FK makes some good mechanical parts (coilovers, strut braces, ect), but their body accessories (tail lights, mirrors, etc) are like most aftermarket things, not always the greatest quality.

There are two different spring/strut kits from FK. 40mm and 60mm. I got the 40mm. The drop it nice, not too much but looks good. I have never bottomed out or spraped any drive way. It's kinda stiff but you get use to it and it handle amazing. I did 120 km/h through the 403/City Centre exit when you going east bound no problem
