KONI Yellow Front & Rear Shocks
Modification of the front stock strut required for installation of these shocks
Click here to download the installation instructions
The KONI Sport dampers are designed for aggressive driving or cars with suspension upgrades while continuing to offer comfort. If a KONI Sport is listed as an alternative to the KONI Special, choose Sport for aggressive handling characteristics. The KONI Sport (yellow) typically starts at a higher initial valving baseline to give a sportier feel and work on vehicles with higher performance parts.
In some instances, KONI will only offer a Special or Sport valving and not both. Some modern cars come from the factory with higher tech suspension systems and wheel/tire packages so they would move directly into the Sport range, however they are still valved to give a comfortable ride with very good handling capabilities.

Loving the ride quality.
Paired this with the Eibach prokit. I have them adjusted about 3/4s to full firm. Ride quality is great. My car is a dd and it's very comfortable. It's perfect for how I want it. Props to kseriesparts for exceptional service and fast shipping. I'll definitely be ordering from here again.......well I already have. Lol. Thanks for everything guys.

Great shocks, bad installation
So I really like the way these feel, I had stock suspension on eibach sportlines and as soon as I installed them I blew ny stock shocks. The ride was terrible and made a whole lot of unwanted noises. As soon as I installed these, all the noises were gone and the ride felt great! The only downside is like everyone else says, the instructions are poorly written and the modification to your stock assembly is kinda nerve racking because if you mess up, you will ruin your stock set up and the konis won't fit. But don't let that stop you from getting these, they are great shocks. Koni would make a lot more cash if they sold these specifically for the rsx. I believe many ppl turn away from these due to the hard install.

Koni yellows not great of uneven surfaces
I gone through the entire range of adjustments trying to find a setting for rough roads and I'm not successful. Its quite a rough ride on bumpy roads, compression damping pretty harsh and makes braking difficult.

The correct shocks for your lowering springs
these shocks are design for all of the lowering springs. I love them even we have to the mod for the front shocks on rsx. I would suggest these shocks for people who only have the lowering spring and don't have the koni yet. Great handling and comfort. Prebound is adjustable. By the way, the shipping package is missing the 2 plastic nuts that prevent from bottom out for the front shocks were missing. Other than that, i have nothing to downgrade for these shocks.

Great struts, difficult install
Overall happy with struts, but install is very difficult. Many shops are even reluctant to do it.

Koni yellows-great shocks-terrible installation mods!
If I were just rating the shocks, I would have given them a 5. I've owned many sets of Konis, but this was by far the worst installation! Why couldn't they have made the struts specifically for the RSX? These are generic shocks that need extensive modification for the car they are installed on. In this case, the original struts had to be modified by cutting off the top of the tube that is about 3/16" thick. In order to make it a straight cut, I started with a pipe cutter to make a line to follow with a hack saw. A hole had to be drilled in the bottom of the tube in order to insert a bolt into the bottom of the Koni shock. This locks the shock into the original strut tube. Instructions were also generic and poorly written. Its a good thing these are supposed to be lifetime shocks, I wouldn't want to try removing the strut inserts to replace them.

I purchased these along with the Einbach Pro-kit lowering springs. It gave a very nice drop that wasn't over the top. The adjustability feature on these shocks is very nice too.

Excellent shocks for a good price. Funny thing is I didn't know they were adjustable. Highly recommended.

Well Worth It
I was hesitant at first when I purchased these. I can now say that I am completely content with my purchase and I wish I had gotten them sooner. The only problem that I have with these is that there is modification to your stock pieces required for the 2 in the front. The instructions given with the shocks from Koni are very brief and are just pictures. With the help of the forums and other sources, these were installed problem free. A must have for anyone desiring a comfortable ride at a lower operation range. I personally have them paired with the Eibach pro kit and I love it.

Definately a must to complete your suspension. Although any modification to your suspension, you will feel more from the road with these shocks that I installed it really makes the ride alot more comfortable.
