    Koni Install

    Sorry for the newby plea for help - but I am taking the SS to a road course on the 20th and I need to get all my mods done ASAP!!

    My Koni SA's are in - the Hotchkis springs should arrive any day - and I am in desperate need of some install help and cannot find anything on the Koni's and how to set them up and adjust them.

    Anyone know of a good site with install/adjustment tips for these Koni's??

    Thanks for the help.

    As far as the adjustments the shocks will come with instructions. usually 5-6 sweeps from full hard on the front is a good starting point and full soft in the back, but it all depends on the rest of your suspension setup.

    This is true. I currently run 4 sweeps from full hard in the front and 1/4 turn from full soft for the rear shocks.

    I really have it all now.

    I would h8 to have to create a list based on reciepts (ouch I can't go there)

    I am still considering changing the springs to Sams or coil overs I have not decided yet.

    A couple of pictures of my car with the front wheel off:

    Thanks for the pics!!

    These are really the first true mods on my 2002 (ordered and owned since new) - but after catching the Mod bug on prior cars I would recommend that you NEVER add up all the receipts!!! Takes all the fun out of it......

    I hear that there is a poll in the AAG where I answered I have spent too much!

    Oh well I love Road racing so it is just the price I have to pay!
