Hello there!
Recently browsing online for aftermarket shocks/struts and saw the Corksport adjustable struts and shocks. Anyone already has it? Or anyone getting these? Feedbacks please. ??

Nice find! I'm curious how they compare to Koni yellows

I hadnt seen these until now and have a few quick thoughts. While Corksport makes some good items for our cars they do not specialize in suspensions. They will have these built by a manufacturer to their specs and resell them. Thats not bad, it just means that it is likely the same as a lot of other items you could find. As such, I would wonder why we should by these when Koni has struts for a similar price. If they offered something extra, like an adjustable perch, then it might edge out an existing brand. Right now its just a direct competitor to an established brand. Im surprised they didnt release a coil like JBR.

These might be great. They might be meh. I wouldnt take the risk for the same price as some Koni yellows.

I would argue the following setups as tried and true:

1. Corksport springs with Koni Yellows
2. H&R or Eibach springs with Bilstein B8 or Koni yellows
3. BC coils (preferably with the Swift springs)- This is what I plan to do
4. Bistein coils

I would not use them unless I knew a lot more about them. Right now they are an unknown quantity and the info on the website is not really much to go on. I can see however that having that block with the adjustment wheel located where it is almost certainly cuts into compression travel. Not exactly what you want, especially if you are lowered a couple inches. If the bump stop is relocated to inside the provided dust boot as it appears, that means even less compression travel and a lot of time hammering around on the bump stops.
