      Yeah would also love to hear how these do on the track. Heard many good things about how these coils are dampening wise. But those were on a mk4 gli and mk6 gti. Different cars I know. I want to know how stiff these can get when I want to ttake my car to the track. I'm torn between these and h&r clubsports and streets

      We have a lot of customers running these on track days, so hopefully some will post up. They do quite well though.

      Unfortunately I've never personally tracked an R, so I can only give the same feedback you've seen, as I've tracked MK4's with Koni's, and they performed very well. If you decide to go with H&R we can also hook you up there. Keep in mind though the H&R's are not dampening adjustable, though they are a very good coilover as well. Personally I like to be able to change the handling balance of the car with the dampening.

      I have a question:

      Everytime u raise and lower your Coilovers, Im thinking It would be wise to adjust your Camber as well? Thanks.

      Any time you adjust the height it is smart to get an alignment. Camber will change, but toe can change as well, which will tear up your tires a lot faster than camber.

      How do u adjust the rear shock dampening? Take off the car and rotate the bottom part?

      You remove them from the car, then compress the shaft into the housing until it clicks into the internal adjuster (you should feel this), then turn the shaft to adjust.

      Just curious, does removing the rear spring perch to achieve more lows compromise performance of the coilover in any way. Is there any real down side to doing this?

      While this is not something officially approved by Koni, We have had a lot of customers do this and I have not heard of any issues or problems.

      can you post some instructions for the rear shocks?
      the instructions they come with are not the easiest to understand.

      fronts are typical knob on top, thats easy. rears not so much.


      thanks!

      thanks!

      Basically, with the rear shock removed from the car, you want to fully compress it. You should hear/feel it click into the internal adjuster. Then you turn the shaft of the shock to adjust. Once you have adjusted it where you want, you pull the shock back out (you will notice a difference in how difficult it is to expand the shock depending on how the dampening is set).

      Let me know if you need any further clarification

      What kind of spring rates are we talking about with these Koni's?

      I must say that I'm quite tempted by these. Sounds like a good combination of performance/comfort/quality/price.

      So far super happy with my Koni purchase, my fav setup of all the suspensions I've run thus far.

      OEM
      HPA SHS
      KW V3s (will be FS soon)


      I was not able to figure out how to adjust the rear shocks. I compressed them all the way and did not hear or feel any clicking no matter how many times I or others tried.

      as far as the fronts. 18turns from bottom seems to be a good height for crappy LA roads.
      still fine tuning the firmness settings.


      also upgraded the front control arm bushings to Super Pro bushings and strut bushing/mounts to UM derlrin.

      Sometimes you have to turn it a little to get it to pop into the adjuster, it's extremely subtle, so you may be in it without realizing. You will, however, be able to tell the difference when you go to extend the shock again. Also, if you are in the adjuster, it will only turn so far each way (for the min and max dampening settings)

      I don't believe I have the rates for this kit, I"ll see if I can get that information

      Got mine installed...Love the ride so far. It's my dd, so I doubt I'll be going any lower. I'll wait till they settle and see.

      I'll just leave these here

      Car enthusiasts -- that vocal crowd who light up Internet forums with vitriolic rants about minor content changes -- or worse, demanding hard-core models that wouldn't sell in big numbers if they came with a trunk full of free money....
