Koni Red Shocks



  • ok went to get mine lowered and my shocks are wrecked….been looking around for sum new shoxks and the only ones i can rly find are koni red ones... are these any good lookingat about 400 for the set... has anyone found n e better?



  • Bilsteins from proven products, currently in my red mx3. Got it dropped -40mm, handles great, looks sweet, comes as a complete strut - not an insert like koni.

    Cost me 320 or something for struts n springs, but they're oem replacement. Koni are designed for lowering I believe. So I would say koni better, but bilstein easier! Other options are importing kyb or tokico from US, think someone did that from here for a good price? Have a search ;)



  • if Koni are designed for lowering id suspect they pay less attention to handling? :?



  • how about these…there kyb...work out to be 232 delivered

    Sorry let me rephrase that! Koni reds are adjustable and are intended for use with lowering springs, and are often used by the yanks with coilovers sleeves. Think tommy d had that set up. So better handling ;)

    KYB sounds reasonable, think the gr2s are pretty much oem style, but should survive a 40mm or less drop for a few years. Maybe could be cheaper to import? But I read they don't have ABS clips, so you would need to cable tie your wires on. Probably not a major issue though. Have a read on mx-3.com forum, I'm sure there's loads on there!
