finally got my koni coils on, heres the before and after pic.
i think there all the way down, handling is great but feels bouncy when i hit small bumps on the road. i may need to adjust the firmness and there is sum rubbing in the front only on uneven surfaces though.

Re: (CarNut84GTi)

how do i adjust the firmness in the rear? kinda confused too on how much to adjust on the front, i turned it 1 full circle on both sides, but still feels a bit bouncy at times. any thoughts?

To adjust the rear, the shock must be removed. Once out fully compress the shock, you'll hear it click once fully compressed. Then turn the shaft to adjust the firmness.
On the front, did you firm them up or soften them? if it feels a bit bouncy you may want to firm them up a lil.

so for the rear take out the shock and push it all the way down right then turn?

Correct, completely compress the shaft in the housing. You should hear it click. You'll know if you adjusted it or not as it will feel either easier or harder to pull back out
