I purchased some Koni (red, i think) adjustable shocks, and I am unsure how to adjust the ride stiffness setting...

Any help would be much appreciated. I know you press down on the shock until it's all the way down...but I dont know if I turn clockwise or counterclockwise or what end I turn...etc.

Also. i want a SLIGHTLY stiffer than stock setting...

Thanks,

Well, how much are you lowering it? That is a big part of it..... Let me know what kinda springs and perches you plan on using then I can help you with stiffness since I have just gone through all this very recently, and still am in the process.

Well, there are only two setting for the perch on the shocks I have...stock and lowered I believe...

I think the lowered setting will lower it just over an inch right?

Oh, I also plan on keeping the stock springs.

Ok, so you plan on using the lowered setting, correct?

If this is the case and you have stock springs then just leave it on full soft (same setting that they come at). This is slightly firmer than stock. If you want even a little bit firmer go to 1/2 from full soft, but after that I'm not sure. I currently have mine on 1/2 and I have eibachs and like the stiffness but then again the eibachs stiffen it up a bit too. The Konis even on full soft are stiffer than stock, but full stiff is incredibly way way to stiff. If you plan on lowering with the Konis I would also cut 1/4 of the bump stop. It couldn't hurt really. I cut off half with my eibachs as well and it helped massively.

Ok, thanks a bunch. I was going to put them on my old Legend before the accident...and I had tinkered with them at that point...

To adjust...which portion do I turn...and in what direction?

I am going to use the lowered setting, and adjust it to 1/2 soft. How many turns would this be?

Many thanks,
