    Default Koni yellow's and Eibach sportline springs question

    hello to everyone who reads this!!!!

    I was lucky enough to get Koni yellow shocks for the front and back. I read up that Koni yellow work grate with Eibach Springs and I got them too. The question is, does anyone else has this setup and could tell me which is the best stiffness setting for the shocks? its just pain to take them rear shocks out in order to adjust them...

    well, thanks a ton

    somewhere in the middle will be ok for the street depending on the springs rates you got. if they are the pro kits.. stick with the middle as a general rule of thumb.

    You can adjust the rear shocks without taking them out, you just have to pull back some of the trunk liner to get access to them. I would set them at the stiffest setting, then go back until the ride gets bouncy.

    actually you cant, they are ajusted only when you compress them all the way down. Otherwise you ill just turn the knob with out any results.

    ^^^ well, i know for a fact you do not need to compress the rears for dampening adjustment; however, the fronts do need to be compressed. I had this set up on my b14 paired w/ 450/400 spring rates. Like the man said, turn them to the stiffest setting and go from there as far as tuning the dampener.

    no fronts don't need to be compressed rears do. fronts can be adjusted on the fly where as the rears have to be taken apart. unless you have some new version that are different than mine...
