I hate asking for this. but, I was going to pick up some H&R ultra's or ultra ultra lows, but they're back ordered untill late april, B&G's are also back ordered...so im looking at Koni's now. I've been searching around and i can't seem to find any pics of how low the Konis will actually bring you down.
anyone?

Re: Koni pic request (Full Collapse)

you could look up shawn raymond's old gti, wagonowner is his screenname. he was on 17's.
this is my car on 15's and 195/45's. pretty low but at the absolute last level of adjustment possible. the lower perch wasnt threaded on, only the top one and that was only about 1/2 to 1 full spin on. koni also offers different springs for their coils according to WRD, i have been trying to find out information on that but they have yet to respond to my email.
at that price range id personally wait for the H&R's. i want to grab a set myself.

Re: Koni pic request (rlsib16)

Thats what was making me rethink it, theyre almost $100 more than B&G's and only $100 less than H&R's. I talked to NGP and they told me H&R's are back ordered until late April at the earliest. And B&G's are always back ordered


i've also contemplated the weitec XS's...but i hear conflicting things about them. 2.0 guys seem to like them, while the VR dudes hate em.

I had Weitec GT coilovers and now have H&R Ultra Ultras, and the H&R ride quality is a HUGE improvement. It's like night and day, I just can't describe how much better it rides. Well worth the extra $200 and even 2 month wait. I believe Weitecs go lower than the Konis, but even the Weitecs won't touch the Ultra Ultra drop range unless you pull the helpers and trim the bumpstops.

weitecs do go lower than the konis, but ive been told by someone who has weitecs that the ride quality on the konis is better.

depends on your settings, too, i bet.
riding in your fully dumped car with the konis was totally different than riding in my car with my semi-low weitecs on fully-stiff

i have my konis set at full stiffy.
i have yet to hit my tire on the fender over a bump.. that's how tight the dampening is..

That's what I'm looking for. I want to dump it, with a decent ride..and I want a lifetime warrenty.
I have a weitec 80/60 and enjoy how it ride, then I got some FK coils off a friends corrado, hated how they rode and went back to the cup kit. I ust wanna do it right this time.
I'm just wondering for the price range if I should just wait out the backorders or just get konis

I have my Konis all the way down (well, 4 threads or 1/4" up, to keep the spring in at full travel). I have 3" at my sub frame (I was reading that tread about measuring...). I also ride with them full stiff. I can get bouncy at certain times, but I really like the ride.
