    Feeler: Koni Sport shocks

    I recently ordered a set of the Koni Yellows, but the struts are unavailable until sometime in October. I'm considering trying to sell the rear shocks and getting a complete set of the Koni Specials as I'd rather not wait another month and a half, or have a mix-matched suspension.

    The model number is KONI 8040 1271SPORT. 2x rear shocks for the sport suspension.

    They have about 100 miles on them, looking for something around $200 for the pair.

    GLWS. If you get the Koni Special Active, I would to know your impression of them. Looking for a set that offers more comfort for daily driving.

    I'm running Bilstein B4. They are not uncomfortable but more firm than what I am accustomed to. I'm used to driving a Toyota.

    I'm attracted by the following claim: "The KONI Special Active shock combines excellent road holding and handling characteristics with no-compromise comfort levels."

    I'm thinking they my suit my needs better than the B4s.

    If it's comfort you're after, I have the king of comfort Koni FSD's coming off the car in the next month (replacing with Koni Sports for that adjustability). They're excellent for a daily driver and even performed well in a short track session, but I'm getting more and more into autocross where I need to be able to lock down the rebound for the insane transitions.

    That is why the Koni Special Active calls my attention as they are the next evolution of the Koni FSD. I am interested in knowing how many miles they have and how much you want for them.

    Hey, Rando. His asking price is $200. The thread title is misleading, this is not a feeler.
