Default Koni Shocks -- Renounce the Bounce!

Koni shocks installed today, and bye-bye bounce!

Thanks to: Shox.com and Mallory-Kotzen Tire of New Rochelle, NY for great service.

I have them set on "1", which is just about the softest setting.

No other suspension mods for now, but definitely new wheels and tires and possibly sway bars are next.

Koni Sport shocks? At $758.80 they had better be good.

They don't make the ride too soft do they? I'd like to get rid of the bounce but not lose the cornering.

Driving over expansion joints on the 405 in Santa Monica could mix a Martini; the rear end hops so much!

I've had mine for about 7 months. Set at full soft. They make the 405 tolerable. Far less freeway bounce but I haven't noticed any reduction in lateral grip at all. Well worth the money!

Much better ride, no bounce at all. Rears are still on full soft, but I dialed the fronts up 50% to see what it might do WRT squat & nosedive. I'm liking it.

For day to day driving I run full soft all around. When its track time, I crank the fronts one full turn and the rears two clicks.
