If you switch to a "better" coilover set, you will likely end up with a higher spring rate, and will be over sprung when you have them set to the soft settings, which could be reason for the bounce. And the reports of the bounce in the kw v3 previously noted. As the spring rates will be more appropriate for the stiffer settings.

Anyway it's worth a call to bilstein to discuss. As it may get you what you want, and save you a few thousand in the process.
That makes sense, thanks for taking the time to explain. I also found this thread which describes exactly what your talking about.

This is a good point Ė you may consider just replacing the springs with a lower rate to match the damper settings that you prefer.

This thread got me on the ball to adjust my compression and rebound settings today. I had gone almost full soft for the winter. And i also had a little bounce - kwv3 -

Fwiw, bounciness can so be a problem when your front and rear settings are mismatched.

I run same settings front and rear. And i tend to keep things simple since most of my driving is street, and if i do get to a track, it's not like i have a lot of time to play with settings to work on better laps times...

So here is where i am- just to throw it out there. Compression +5 clicks from full soft. And rebound +8 clicks from full soft. Bounce is gone and the ride is still compliant for the street, but feels like a sports car again.

I know this has little to do with this thread, but since the kw had been mentioned, figured I'd toss it out there.

These are two good threads on setup.

And even if you don't have kwv3, it's a good read to have a basic understanding of how all this stuff works.

Now back to our originally scheduled program....

Fwiw- on the 3.9 liter monster that Peter Dawe is building us...(read- "for John"), Peter bought new springs and sent the bilstein b6 John already had, to bilstein for revalving. So just putting that out there, as it's not "a lesser" version of a strut to go that direction, when even legends in the world of performance do the same. The question really is - who is the guide to what valving for your spring rates and setup...so I'm curious to hear if you call bilstein, what help they are in that process.

My 964 is on KW3 with a lot of Elephant Racing components. I have no bounce, the ride is perfect in my opinion. It’s currently right around RS ride height.

But, the race shop I use set it up for me knowing how I like my cars to handle.

I like it better than PSS10s I had on another 993.

Good feedback, thanks. Your 964 looks great with the LMís.

Amazing stable of cars in the background too!

Seems like a whole lotta effort and money for a street car. I'd get some matched shocks and springs and set it and forget it.
