Yeah, I don’t really understand how people could have such dramatically different experiences with Konis. If someone said they didn’t like how they perform, I get that... they are on the budget end of performance struts.Having had a lot of Konis, and also installed for lots of other people, I've never had these issues as that member did.
Use the correct parts and it's all good.
If the ride quality is excessively harsh or there’s a rake issue there’s something else going on. When installed and adjusted correctly the ride should be smooth and the rake should be set by the coil springs.
