Struts = Shocks / Shocks = Struts
Same difference:D
Don't worry we all say strut or we all say shock (depends how we feel)
If you bought koni's for a 91-95 legend then don't worry as there is ONLY 1 application for our car. Sedan or couple they are the same as long as they are from 91-95.

As for the Ground Control "coil over" make sure they have the Koni add on or you are going to have to buy them from Ground control or make your own. Basically Koni's are about .03inches smaller than stock struts(or shocks:p ) and they have to add a metal ring on the inside of the coil so that they fit properly on the koni with very little (probably none) movement.

Good Luck and enjoy that 3 inch "SLAM" on factorys - I know I am:cool: , but now my tires look like /-------\ :D :D
and I am too poor for a camber kit right now

Your koni's are a PAIN in the butt to adjust as you have to take them out completely and also remove the spring before you can adjust(soft or hard), so try to get it right the first time. I am going to try to adjust the perch hight with the struts still on the car this weekend as I made a mistake of putting the Ground controls on the middle koni perch instead of the bottom on, so now my rear is only dropped about 2-1/2 inches while the front can go down about 4 (3.9 according to the techs at ground control) (set at 3 inch drop with factory 15's)

As for the ground control you just have to get a 3/8 allan key and open the screw once the car is jacked up and either twist right or left to make the car go up or down. You just have to make sure that you jack up BOTH SIDES at the same time (both right and left front to adjust the front and both right and left rear to adjust the rear) It took me about 15minutes for front and another for rear a couple of days ago, because I washed all the salt and dirt from them and then adjusted it.

GOOD LUCK.

Thanks. Let us know how your perch adjustment goes. I have the same problem with the rear.
