I have the money and am all set to buy Koni Yellows, but first I have a few questions that should be pretty easy for anyone who has them.

Where did you get yours and how much where they? I haven't found any place that can beat Modacar's $499.

How does the height adjustabiliy feature work? Is it easy to adjust or does the whole strut have to be taken apart to do it?

And how easy is it to adjust the stiffness?

Thanks for any help,
Mike

500 bucks is about the lowest price these days.

I bought mine off groupbuycenter.com at about the same price.

The height adjustibilty gives you a plus or minus .25-.50 inch adjustment over stock. Your height setting must be set prior to installing the spring and shock. Where the spring sits on the mount around the shock, there are these selective perches for the mount. I believe the front has two settings, OEM and a notch lower. While the rear shocks have three, an OEM, one higher and one lower.

I heard people say Nuespeed has it's own line of Koni Yellos, which have five point adjustibility, however I don't know if the height adjustments go beyond the quarter to half inch.

To adjust for stiffness, the top of the shock looks like a flat head screw driver. Koni supplies a knob and you just rotate the flat tab. You do not know what setting the stiffness will be at, thus all four corners will probalby never be set at equal stiffness unless you set it to it's softest or stiffest.

I just count the number of turns I do, and do the same for the other shocks.

I got mine at RT Motorsport in Woodbridge for around $1100.00cdn, i use neuspeed sports springs along with the koni yellows and the performance is wicked!! To adjust the height you have to take apart everything, but to adjust the stiffness is simple, just put the knob on top of the shock and turn, the stiffest is one full turn to the right(360degrees).

Thanks for the replies. I plan to use them with Neuspeed Race springs so I guess I'll just leave the height where it is cause it will already be pretty low.

i too am looking at the yellows and was wondering how stiff they are? Is the softest setting as soft as stock? Thanks

I really don't think that konis give a bad ride at all. People don't notice it being too stiff, when they get in my car (ie mom and dad). Its not as soft as stock but IMO I think its pretty close, just don't go sailing over any huge bumps in the road :p Its stiffness will also depend on how much of a drop you do too.

The softest setting on the Koni Yellows are stiffer than stock, but then again, I am riding on Eibach Sportlines, so I don't even get much compression in the first place.

My brother tells me the Koni Yellows are rebound adjustable anyway, so is only when the suspension is moving up does the variable stiffness take into account.

on top of that, Koni Yellows can be taken apart and revalved to make them even stiffer for race purposes.

i really like my ride at the softest setting, on neuspeed sof-sports. i don't find it too much worse than stock, but yes, i agree, it is slightly stiffer than stock, when the yellows are on mushy. i think it probably has more to do with the spring rates than anything, and sofsports aren't that much more than the stock springs.
