    +1, for sure!

    i believe that you adjust them by removing the shock tower mounts at the top of the wheel wells.

    haha...i believe 0 is the stiffist and 3 is the loosest. I am on 1's all around and i like it. I think 0 is not practical for general roads as pot holes feel like canyon dives allready. you might want setting 2

    4th Gen SA Koni's are like Eugenio said, with an allen key while on the car, all the way right for full hard (I run our front on four sweeps off of full hard). 3rd (Koni Generation not F-Body) Gen SA Koni's have to be dismounted to turn the collar while pressing the release button on the body of the shock. The 3rd Gens have 3-4 selections for adjustment.
