    Wait until someone sells their used Koni Sa shocks, seriously. You'll have to check the boards at least once a day, they go fast.

    Just a reminder.... Koni's go up in price about 10% at the end of the day on Friday. Also a reminder, used shocks are not covered under warranty (original purchaser only).

    If you can't swing Koni's, you have options. But I'd have to discuss them with you and will not recommend anything by way of e-mail, forums or PM. Phone call is needed here.

    I've posted the price increase in various places including my website. I don't want it to be a surprise....

    As for the e-mail. I've always said that I don't like to make recommendations without talking to the person first. And fwiw, I didn't see an e-mail from anyone named Bill in the last two days anyway. Which is another reason I don't trust of rely on e-mail....

    I sent it from work, so it is 'official' looking, wnorthup at DOT.STATE etc-
    I could re-send, but why bother- I will tie you up on the phone for ten minutes discussing my driving style and what I am looking for- planning on my next mod-

    Employee Discount

    You could "stretch the truth" and see if you can get an employee discount for them. I ordered a set of Koni Yellow Sport shocks and received wholesale pricing (about 20% off the retail price) when I called Koni and told the salesperson I worked for ITT Industries (the corporation that owns Koni). At the time, I actually worked for ITT, but the salesperson never asked me to verify my employment with them.

    Aside from the fact it's not honest to try and take Koni or ITT (or anyone else) for a ride, 20% of retail cost is above Jobber pricing levels, and in fact I sell for 30% off of retail (which is under jobber pricing).
