The Konis came!

Here they are:

I know the rear purchases are missing. IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE MISSING? like the little knobs with numbers on them to adjust dampening? And those hooks to spin them down when they are on the car?

The two styles that work with the coilovers have different center depths for the slot shown above. One is flat and one has an extended post where the strut adjuster goes in.

The rears are an Allen head used to hold the shaft while you take the top mount off. 5mm I think.


To adjust them you take the mount off, push the shaft ALL THE WAY DOWN and turn a 1/4 clockwise to engage the damping mech. To soften you turn slowly counter clockwise and to stiffen turn clockwise shaft has 4.5 turns I believe or that may be just the fronts and the rears are 2.5...

Either way, when they are fully soft/stiff it will stop you from turning the shaft. Then set where you want (I Rec full soft initially) when you have it set merely pull shaft straight up and the damping adjustment will disengage.


FYI- fronts are set opposite. Clockwise is soft/counter clockwise is stiff.

Wierd I know...
