After months of technical issues and back and forth with Koni, we were finally at the home stretch of the installation. Time to get these onto our CRX!
With our new Koni Sports unboxed, it was time to begin the installation process. Before assembly however, a few things needed to be done.
Fresh out of the box, we decided to compare our new Koni Yellows with our OEM struts. Notice that our brake line brackets fit nice and snug.
After a not-so-great experience with the Koni STR.T suspension kit, we decided to return the entire kit and replace it with Koni's top-of-the-line Yellow Sport Shocks. We'll be reutilizing our stock OE springs and using Koni's adjustable perches to lower the vehicle.
With our brake line brackets finally fitted to our new Koni struts, we were oh so close to getting the new suspension installed on the car. Koni just didn't want Nancy to get a new set of shocks =(
If you're wondering why we're dedicating an entire post on swapping over brake line brackets, it's because this part of the installation required the most amount of time. Allow us to share (or rather vent) our experience.
With the OEM front suspension off the car, we took the opportunity to take some photos comparing the two setups.
With the pre-inspection out of the way, it was time to remove our worn out OEM shocks and springs. Below is the list of tools used and the steps we took.
