I installed the Konis myself with no trouble. They ride like stock on the softer settings. I autocrossed with them last Sunday. I set the fronts on full firm and the rears about half way. They performed very well. They are an excellent investment.

Went from the stock shocks to these. The ride may be alittle stiffer, but these shocks were never meant for comfort. Car handles great.

The Koni sports I purchased for my BMW are one of the best upgrades I have done so far! I am what's called a spirited driver and avid autocrosser, these definitely improved the handling of my car and made it a joy to drive throught the hills.

koni yellows are great performers, especially for the price you pay. they will exceed you're expectation. even if full stiff, you can still use these as a dailydriver. put them on full stiff and you car's handling will improve dramatically. in full soft, they ride very very comfortably. i usually put them on full soft when i take my girlfriend. even when i forget to dial them full soft, my girlfriend doesn't even notice. i have these paired with eibach groundcontrols.

Best combo out there. Stiffens up your ride a bit. Paired with the sportlines its a great aggressive look. I put the front on the lowest perch setting and left the back where it is to avoid the famous "Boat Look" when lowered.

I've tried kyb, bilstien & koni struts/shocks and I am going back to Konis. The bilsteins are nice, but you can't beat the adjustability, performance and the life of Konis. If you are looking for an upgrade, they are well worth the price!

The good: Shocks are easily adjusted, fit well in OEM strut housing, dampening rate may be set similar to stock, or at mid point of adjustment similar to Bilstein HD (have not set on full firm yet,New England roads are very bumpy). The bad: "Instructions" are horrible, A Google search is the best way to get info re install details. The directions refer to several different shocks and include very little in the way of written instruction,(mostly symbols). Koni tech support is not very reliable as far as call-backs, they never returned my call. In the end they were installed with no problems,in my driveway.

I purchased these shocks after doing quite a bit of research. A vast improvement over the OEM Decarbon shocks that came on the Camaro SS. The shocks are firm even on the softest setting. However, the firmness should not be confused with harsh or rough. The car rides exactly the way a performance car should.

After much research on what shocks to get for my 2006 GTO, it seemed that the Koni shocks were the clear choice. They live up to there rep as being a high quality product. I would recommend these shock to anyone. I haven't messed with the adjustability of these yet, just set on the "softest" setting, which is a firm but smooth ride.

If you own a Mazda5, you already know that the rear dampers and not so great. I had mine replaced twice under warranty, third time going to come under my dime. I was determined not to have to replace them again. In step the Koni Sports. Fantastic damper, excellent warranty terms, and perfect fitment. I couldn't be happier. These even work great with the stock springs. Next purchase will be the front set to match.

I installed my Koni Yellow shocks and Eibach Sport springs a few weeks ago. I wanted to wait till I could evaluate everything before I made this review. The drop of the Eibachs for me was perfect, I like the look. I adjusted my shocks to +1 turn on fronts and +1/2 turn on rears, fantastic ride all around. I'm a pretty aggressive driver, I live in an mountainous area near Julian, CA. with a lot of "twisties" this combination definitely dialed in my Mazda 3. I have a 1976 BMW 2002 series rally car with a complete Bilstein handling package including 20mm sway bars, and my Mazda handles almost as well in the turns. Thanks Auto Anything for the great price and customer service on both purchases. I would recommend this set up to anyone who likes spirited driving that is tight as well as comfortable.

These were a great replacement for my worn out stock shocks and struts. Still working on dialing them into where I want them, but the adjustability is a nice feature. The only complaint I have is that the rears are not externally adjustable, and have to be removed from the car to change settings. Overall very happy with the purchase.

They do transmit more noise into the cabin of my 2007 Mazdaspeed 3, but the adjustable dampening is the best part. Removes some/most of the "floatiness" of the original suspension. Note however that the rears require REMOVAL to be adjusted. VERY VERY inconvenient. It takes an hour to remove-adjust-replace....at least! So its only useful if you have the tools and ability. Otherwise the rear adjustment is worthless, as paying someone will cost you $100s per adjustment. Also the adjustments on the rears are only made by vague TURNS of the shock. IF you dont CAREFULLY note how many turns you made you could re-adjust incorrectly and you wont know until you drive and test. The fronts are easy to adjust...10 seconds per side! But again, no # markings or clicks to know how far you have adjusted. If youre willing to remove and replace the rears each time you want to adjust, then I recommend them. Better than a nonadjustable shock that leave you zero ability to soften or harden ride quality.

Put a set on my Eclipse, for which there are few viable aftermarket alternatives. Koni doesn't make a dedicated strut for the front of this car. You have to saw the top off the old strut, remeove the guts, install the Koni insert and bolt it in. Great idea, if it works. Gutting and prepariing the old strut housings was not difficult. But due to certain quality control issues, getting the new inserts into them proved to be a real challenge. Took two weeks, an RMA and a second delivery to make it happen. Thanks for working with me on that, Auto Anything. The car feels great with them now. Vastly superior to OEM struts. Hope it lasts. I don't want to do that job again.

Needed to replace 1 Koni on my Z06 used for SCCA Solo events, so decided to put a new pair on the front. Got quick delivery on the shocks, then install went pretty quick as I've done this multiple times. The Koni's feel better than stock on the road to me, more positive responses. And on Solo courses and tracks they are a huge difference. Great shock for the money with the ability to adjust.

I love my Jetta TDI, and was hoping for ride improvement at 97k miles. Going from the original struts to Koni Sports, I thought I would notice some ride improvement. It appears that the Jetta needs more than just new struts. No difference in ride over my daily bumps. Only slight improvement in cornering and steering. Very disappointed. I'll try adjusting them and see if I notice any improvement, but so far, nothing has changed, and nothing warrants the additional expense of the Konis.
