  • Koni also had to contend with the higher spring rates that are common to IRS vehicles. Higher rates are often needed because of the different motion ratios that come into play in comparison to solid axle Mustangs. The rear spring rates on the S550 are 600 percent stiffer or more compared to previous Mustang rear spring rates. Such high spring rates makes engineering valving that will appropriately dampen the spring motion while maintaining ride quality much more difficult. Koni chose the valving for its shocks accounting for various spring rates and tried to build something that would work well with the factory spring rates, all the way to the stiffest streetable lowering springs. Koni Sport Yellows are a great option for street performance enthusiasts that also spend some time on track.

    Koni Sport Shocks, also known as Koni "Yellow" shocks are a substantial upgrade to the stock shocks or even over other performance aftermarket shocks. Koni makes it easy for you to adjust the damper. With an external damper adjustment knob, you do not need to remove the shocks in order to adjust them. Koni Yellow Shocks perform best on vehicles that are lowered less than 35mm, or 1.378"). Koni Sport Shocks have long been known to be one of the best performance shocks on the market. Many customers use these shocks with lowering springs or sleeve over coilovers. For aftermarket shocks that are race ready, these shocks offer an excellent ride that many customers enjoy on their daily drivers.

    Why? In a word? Pricepoint.

    You can actually send your Koni Yellows back to Truchoice, and they'll make em double adjustable for you... but it'll cost you. Most all true double adjustable shocks cost more. Like Tokico, Koni was trying to offer the most needed features, while eliminating others and keeping them sited to the way most people will use them (as a stock replacement with either stock or aftermarket lowering springs), to keep 'em around $125/shock.

    koni yellow twintubes adjust rebound in the piston using orifice which can be accessed using the shaft, comrpession damping is adjusted through the footvalve located at the bottom of the shock, to adjust compression they have to modify it to allow access to the footvalve.

    I think it's a bad idea to adjust comp and rebound together, sometimes you need to adjust the rebound and compression in the opposite direction. But the kyb and tokicos have so little adjustment range, it doesn't really matter anyhow.
     

    Manual transmission. Needs water pump and head gasket. Package comes with new water pump/timing belt kit, and head gasket. These parts are valued between 800 - 1000. New Koni yellow racing suspension installed last year. In-dash monitor/radio. Make me an offer.
