LegendMs is sponsoring another group buy for Koni/HR/Eibach and one of the members asked about the KoniShock/Stock Spring setup. I think you mentioned you were familiar with this setup and possibly had some pics to share. Visit the forsale/market place and you should see the questions asked about this paticular setup. Thx.

That is the setup I have right now. I have the front on the low Koni perch setting and the rear in the middle Koni perch setting. I will try and get a picture soon. I just having taken one yet, but I sould be able to snap on with my digital camera fast. It is night time here already though.

These pics where converted to stills from my mini DV camera, so they might not be the best.

Over all look of stock springs and Koni shocks.


This is the front with stock springs and Koni on low pecrch set to full soft.


Here is the rear on stock springs and Koni shocks set to the middle perch and full soft. I had them st on the low perch before, and it was just a bit lower then this, but as soon as you start putting things in the trunk, it would sink lower, so I moved them to the middle perch. The look right now is about 1/4" lower than normal, as I have my golf clubs and some other things in the trunk. It usually sits about 1/2"-3/4" lower than stock, while the front sits about 1" lower than stock. The stock springs have about 80K miles on them, so the ride height may vary for others who try this set up.



Overall, the ride feels like stock, but it just has the lower look. Perfect for those who want the stock confort, but want to get rid of some of that fender gap.

Hey Chris,

Your Coupe looks great!!! Your idea of running Koni's with stock springs seems to be the right ticket. As you have the best of both worlds, a comfortable ride with a little attitude!!!

If I am able to convince my wife to buy a GS sedan, I certainly will copy your set-up.. (Hope you don't mind..):D

thanks alot Chris K. The word is that you need to get your car re-alligned with new springs, so does the same apply with new shocks (only) ? Fresh pics by the way. :)

Theoreticall No, but in reality yes. Even if you were to use new OEM shocks, there could have been enough of a difference as the old shock wore down that the alignment over time chaged dramatically. The new shocks might we very different. You should get an alignement once a year anyway, or at least every two years.

Anyone wanting to kno about Koni/Stock Springs needs to see this... EXCELLENT pics ChrisK...

BTW, I was wondering if the Coupe in the pics could be sitting lower because of your drivway incline...
