For what you are after if it were me I'd go TCK. I had a set (I replaced them with Ohlins because I'm a track rat) but they ride great, can be lowered, and will last a good long time. The base shock is a Koni and they have a lifetime warranty if I remember right. I've seen a fair number of V3 shocks that are blown out and in need of rebuild with not a lot of mileage on them.

How long did your Clubsports last?
If twin tube, TC Kline Koni based coilovers is one of the best if not the best out there. Very rarely you will experience any issues and reliability is better than other twin tubes out there. Performance and ride quality is also second to none. TC takes time developing his kits and everything is custom valved to his specs. The precision in damping far exceeds the V-series.

Yes, the lifetime warranty applies to vehicles registered for street use.

Another vote for TCK DA over KW V3. When KW first started out they got caught using Koni internals - why not go with the direct source? TCK custom-valved Konis

I have a set of Ohlins R&T i got from HPautosport and GC camber plates, i love em.

Just FYI stay away from TCKline camber plates, they only come with spherical bearings where the best camber plates like Vorshlag, GC come with both spherical and radial bearings!
I talked to TC about it,he thinks you dont need radial bearings, i experienced spring binding back when i had his camber plates back when i had my e92 M3.

I had to redo the install over $50 missing parts that are needed! TC thinks you should use use locktite on the top nut, if you're running radial bearings, there no need to worry about the top nut coming loose.

His konis and spring rates are spot on though!

TC Kline's don't always stand by their warranty based on my experience with the 335 back in the day. Also the Konis they came with back then weren't SS material and rusted right thru after the first winter.

Yes, usually you need revalving for higher spring rates.
