    Sorry you are correct....but they are using koni gc setup.
    The top guys are using the race valved ones good for 1000lbs but alot are still using standard konis as Muzz said they are good for 600lbs.

    nice write up muzz...
    i am in the process of installing my setup atm too..
    have the same rates but DC2R konis and gc top hats..

    Just wondering if your spring moves around at all when the sussy is at full stroke? To me the springs seem fairly short.

    Also when adjusting, are the dampers click adjustable, or just a linear progressive feel (i dont get any clicks)

    yeah
    just got them in..
    well if i want to lower it
    the spring will be loose @ full stroke
    like fly over a bump type thing.. but doesnt seem like a real problem


    it is good sussy when u dial the dampers half way or so.. real good (i have driven like 5 different setups in the same type car to compare)

    I've noticed that the metal tube from the old suspension was not reinstalled onto the konis... A diagram I got from another forum shows this...



    Anyway I've since installed the shocks without the metal tubing illustrated in the diagram... Does anyone know if its potentially life-threatening to do so ? My shocks ain't brand new so i'm not sure if koni supplied their own metal tubes for the installation..

    the 'metal tube' is the stock dust boot, it won't fit over the ground control sleeves
    hence why the original poster used steer rack boots
    without it, it allows dust to get in/on the shock piston and cause premature wear

    sorry vinny .. but i was talking about the "Metal Cylinder Tube" The piece of metal tube roughly 2" long that comes with your stock rubber bushing that sits on the top hat of the suspension.. Its a small metal tube that sticks through a rubber bushing.. its 10mm that cannot fit onto konis that have a 12mm shaft..

    we're talking about the exact same thing mate

    as stated before, if you weren't using ground control sleeves you could just bore it out to 12mm and slip it on

    otherwise my first post about it not fitting over sleeves and either seizing over sleeves or damaging it in one way or another still applies

    8 years too long, just realised i wasn't talking about the right thing
    iirc the koni's came with a little replacement metal tube which slots through the top hat bushings
    if they don't though, a 12mm drill bit would solve the problem(although a pain in the butt)
