I have the Koni Classic adjustible shocks controling my Hotchkis springs and find the ride and handling excellent for the street. They are set to the lightest setting, I tried adjusting them firmer and the ride got harsh on the typical crappy streets here. If used for open track or autocross I can see adjusting them firmer. That's the one big plus over the Bilstien IMO.Isn't there a big price diffrence between the two?
Great...you will like them..Here is something to put on your screen saver until they arrive.I have the Koni from Detroit speed ordered and should arive this Wed!:hurray: Hope to staert this project tomorrow so expect more question.
Think of the top half of the shock as a spanner wrench or as a socket wrench, you collapse the shock then push down and turn the top and it will seat into place. Now you can turn counter-clockwise for less firm and clockwise for more firm.Koni's came in today and I'm very happy, but even after looking at the instructions I'm still not sure how to adjust these front shocks, can anyone out there help me?
More than strong enough. You can use a piece of rope if you want. You just want to stop it from flying across the room in case the jack comes loose or the car moves. I doubt it's going to go flying out anyway.Also will a 3/16 chain with a 700 lbs rating work to secure the spring when I remove them?
