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.
And unlike our previous setup where the springs didn't fit correctly, our OEM springs seat perfectly with the included hardware in the Koni Yellow Sports.
Here's how the rear shock compares to our stock assembly. After 25 years of use, the original foam bump stops were on its last legs.
These are going to need to be replaced...
Ahh the infamous Koni height adjustment perch - just one of the features that made these shocks a favorite among car enthusiasts. We'll be moving the perch in the "low" setting for a nice and subtle half in drop.
The metal perch takes a little bit of force to dislodge but all you really need are a pair of pliers.
We did the same for the rear, moving the ring from the middle to the bottom perch. We're also pretty impressed with the additional hardware that Koni supplied with each shock.
When compared side by side, it's clear the car will sit a tad lower than stock. We're super excited to get these on the car. Onwards!
