It's one of the main reasons that I avoided KW (and ACS rebranded) and looked at Bilstein and Ohlins - adjuster(s) are at the bottom of the damper body.
I agree. As much as I like KW SC coilovers, I wish KW were to move adjustment controls to the bottom.
Well KW does have controls on the bottom, it's the bump control. Their rebound is on the top. It would be easier for us if the rear shocks had rebound elsewhere, but it may be a packaging or design issue for KW that keeps that from happening.
