I currently live in Michigan and moving back home to Philly at the end of the year. Either way, the winters are horrible and salt is everywhere. I am pretty set on purchasing Koni's, but my only concern is rust and corrosion since they aren't SS. Any information on how to prevent corrosion and seizing? Will I have to constantly wash and clean them during the winter months? I read that many ppl grease the threads, but will this have to be done on a regular basis? Any info is appreciated!
Basically, these will work on any MKVI with IRS, and will not work on those with the twist beam (non-IRS) rear suspension.
Koni of North America may not have updated their fitment guide, but Koni worldwide has them listed for the MKVI (www.koni.com then click on worldwide)
The mounts/bearings depend on the mileage on your car. They are just standard replacements so if your car has a low mileage, then you wouldn't need to, if you have a decent amount of mileage on your car, then you may want to consider swapping them out when doing the suspension.
My coils came in 4 days at the slowest/cheapest rate. I was very pleased with whole transaction. WRD customer service is top notch. The Koni's are normally $1400 and I got them for $980. Really? This must be a dream.
Thanks WRD!! I will be buying from you again.
- What happens in Vegas, I brag about for years.
the wife called me and said my Koni's were waiting at the door when she got home, can't wait to get home and check them out,
Bump for fast shipping and great price!

I got my koni's on a few weeks ago. Absolutely love them! FTG 24 F and 24.25 R and they ride awesome. Now I want to go lower. It's very addicting! Once I get her washed I'll post pics. Anyway thanks to WRD for the fast shipment and great customer service.
Only question I have is...is the lifetime warranty through WRD or Koni? The only reason I ask is because I never received the warranty card with the coils?
