Is anyone using Koni springs? My Koni Sport kit with Koni Yellows and Koni springs is scheduled for delivery tomorrow. I have not been able to find spring rates, though I have requested them from Koni. They're supposed to lower the car ~40mm.

To the best of my knowledge, Koni makes one set of springs for each application. Are you thinking of Neuspeed? I used Neuspeed springs with Koni shocks on several Honda's I owned.

Funny how Koni chose Eibach Pro-kits to go with their FSDs, yet Koni has "somebody" make them springs?

Do you think Eibach makes Koni Springs? Or does Koni? hmmmm

I'm sure they dont make them. I'm wondering if they are rebadged pro kit springs or if they are made to Koni's specs.

Ooops. I was missing a picture. They are matched springs and shocks, not coilovers.

When you need help putting them in ?

Wowo - How much did those cost, if you don't mind me asking. I'm craving a suspension/brake overhaul this year.

~$675. I'll have a set available if my buddy doesn't buy them. I waited about 8 weeks to get these. Koni North America said they are the first sets in the US. I feel so special. :D

That's a compliment I have to use on a girl one of these days...

"Damn girl, you look so linear!"

I wish you lived closer i would love to compare those to my h&r coilovers. see how both feel on the road and track. for daily driving and also racing. from the size of your springs im willing to bet mine are stiffer though.

I have the Koni yellows on my car with my Tein H-techs. I still have things set from the factory which I believe is full soft. I really like the ride now. Stiffer than stock but still not bouncy. Let us know how this combo works out for you.

people should meet up at the track one day with different springs and shocks and coilover set ups and everyone use the same tires and see which company produces the best suspension products. we could post lap times salom speeds and differences in braking distance if any that would be great would could produce are own article.
