I have the Konis on all four corners of my car and along with other suspension upgrades it handles nicely. I really can't tell how much the Konis may have helped because I never drove the car before disassemble and rebuilding, but the car handles really well.

X33D80, Just curious did you go with the soft setting or did you make any revolutions in the shock to stiffen them? I'm thinking of going with a full 360 degree turn or approximately 1/5 up from the softest setting. I know Koni recommends experimenting, but I'd rather not take them off and on and just ballpark it the first go round.

I have run Koni's since day 2 on my Z, Several years ago after 25 years I removed them and replaced them with the KYB gas special,, boy could I tell the differance. Bonzzi clutch drops at hi rpm sent the rear end dancing. I found a site, Performance depot that sold pairs under a $90 each , got 4 and put back on. The ride was back. I have the front set on firm to keep nose down and high speeds and rear to keep rear wheel hop down. Only 3 setting on this valving.

I believe mine have three settings too and when mounting them I put them all on medium and have not yet experimented with changing them. The ride is now firm but not uncomfortably so, but going over railroad tracks is interesting.
zdld17 - Do you also have your rears set on firm? I'm not sure after reading your message.

All on firm. I have the orginal off road GM .750 wire 550# rate springs in front. I have always felt firm was the best there. I have always set rear to firm since day 2. The rears are not the drag shock , but the 80-1953 . Front are the 80-1914. All are fluid shocks.
