For you current or previous Koni yellow adjustable shocks owners...
Hard easy or difficult is it to change the stiffness of the damper?
Like car you leave the wheels on and it take a few minutes?
Or do you have to elevate the car remove the wheels and play with the settings?
Thanks for your help and insight! Considering a set for my Jetta.

rear shocks require wheel removal. remove shock. unbolt the top mounting piece then adjust and put it all back together.
TIP full soft is way to soft. Start at least +2 turns

Actually you don't have to remove the rear wheels to get the shock out. Just jack up the car so the wheel is hanging and it will give you more than enough space to get the shock out. From there it's two bolts to release the top of the shock, one bolt on the bottom. You will then have to remove the shock mount so you can compress the shock and adjust it. To remove, adjust, and reinstall rear konis is about a 45 minute operation tops. Mine are set at 1/2 turn from full soft in the rear, and 1 turn from full soft in the front for daily driving.
