    Strano springs and Koni shocks

    Hey not to take over the thread but one of my QA1 rear shocks decided to go out. I was wondering since the koni's can be adjusted for a 3/4" drop can you just forget the strano springs and get a 3/4" drop for the front/rear?

    Only front Koni's offer the ride height drop. To get it in the rear, you do the isolator mod. And fwiw, drops vary, I tell my customers they are looking on average @ 1/2-3/4" using stock springs, lower perch on front Koni's and the isolator mod.

    Shipment in transit from Germany... None here, but there will be shortly. Already about 20 sets of the 100 spoken for. Don't wait too long to get an order it, they go really fast.

    FWIW, no reason not to order as I there is NO CHARGE until the springs are ready to ship.

    Happy to tell you that, but I can't do it publicly anymore. Trusting folks and giving out proprietary info has burned me way too often. Again, privately I'm willing to tell you what you want to know--only ask you don't share the information since others seem to prone to wanting me to do the work and they can ride my coat-tails.
