Hi List,

Anybody have any experience / comments to make on Koni Sports on a coupe
4 options listed for front shocks: externally adjustable or not, and suited
for lowered or standard springs...

I just got some B&G springs which will apparently lower it by 1.5"... so I
assume I should get the lower shocks...
It specifies 50mm rebound for these ones, which doesn't seem like a lot...
of course it may match the springs I have, but I won't know until I have
fitted them...

Is it worth getting the externally adjustables? Sounds like it would be
nice to be able to soften the ride up for gravel / loose metal roads, and
tighten it for the smooth stuff... but don't know how much effect this will
have given that the spring rate will obviously remain constant...?
What is the typical price difference?

Thanks for any feedback...
