Rear Koni's in and on

Have had the rears on for a week now.

Main impression is that while they are okay at the softest setting using the stock fronts - the car really needs all four corners with Koni's. If you dial in any firmness to the rears - the front stockers seem to get stressed. Not an issue at the track - but not good on a NJ highway. The fronts really get pushed on going over bumps.

Just my .02

Front are now on order - should be here in a few days. Wifey is a bit pissed to say the least. O'h well I like the couch

i was looking into the Koni's as well...was it worth the money, do you feel the difference? is there still bad wheel hop? and did it change the ride height at all?

I think they are definitely worth the money - if you like a tighter shock. The ride height staid the same - from what I can see.

I like them - just not set up as rears only.
