Hope this helps,
In the past several years that we've been using Koni's, both off the shelf parts
and those that we've had custom valved or custom built, there is always one thing
that holds true...
That is you never adjust them full stiff or full soft.
Full soft, adjustment turned all the way down, is NOT a setting. It is the end of
the adjusters travel. At this point, the valves are pretty much wide open so you
really don't have much damping to speak of.
Full hard, adjuster turned all the way up, will produce almost the exact opposite
effect. Again, it is NOT a setting, it is the end of the adjusters travel. On full
hard, the valves are pretty much closed so almost no oil will pass through and the
struts will act like bricks.

As far as this comment made in the previous post, If all the way down and all
the way up are not true adjustment points then Koni has not sold an adjustable
with a range that goes beyond normal operating parameters.
