    Koni Yellows. Anyone ever buy/install them?

    Here they are I bought them used, but listed as BNIB. They do indeed look to be brand new and never installed. My question, is if this is everything the kit is supposed to come with.

    The simple instructions show that a piece needs to be replaced, a piece that is not in my packages



    This is what I have:

    These are adjustable right? I heard you have to remove the rears ones just to adjust them? WTF?

    That's all you need. Everything else gets transferred over from the original strut. The rears you have to take out, compress fully then turn. I do it in a vice before installing them.

    It's all there. It's just stating that the "new" is the new strut with all the old stuff transferred over. It also shows that you do not want to reuse worn out bump stops. If they're anything like the Koni Yellows that I put on my GTI, then you have to set the rear's damping before installing. You have to compress them all of the way and turn them to either soft or hard then assemble the struts. I set them in between soft and hard and let they were decent enough not to mess with again. The fronts were much easier to set, since you just had to put the tool on the top and turn it. Let me know how the car feels when you are done. Also, did you have the sport suspension to begin with?

    Yeah should be rebound only. The fronts would have a threaded section at the top and the rears would adjustable perches.

    The struts are fixed, ride height wise, and the rear struts do not have adjustable perches.

    I will dial in the rears before installing them, it takes a little bit of figuring it out to realize when you are adjusting them and just turning them...usually takes me putting it in a vise, compressing the shaft and turning the shock body.

    Usually 1 turn from full soft is more than enough for most people.
