    Koni Shocks available in the UK.

    Well my old yellow Koni shocks are getting old, signs of rush, will be nice to stick a new set in there. As they are made in Holland, there is little point going to the US if i know the part numbers.

    Never brought from Demon tweaks before, but it appears they have them in stock.
    Fronts:- Koni Adjustable Front Sport Shock Absorbers | Demon Tweek

    Rears:- Koni Adjustable Rear Sport Shock Absorbers | Demon Tweek

    Sold individually, Almost £900 for a complete set. I need to get them, as my current ones show signs of rust, which got picked on as an advisory on the MOT. They have been on there for well over 10 years now.

    I plan on purchasing them over the xmas period. I know I need more bits.
    Dave I know you mentioned about the Watts links, so I'll try to find the thread and do more reading.Get a plan together on what to get and where from. I may need your expertise to set up once installed.

    The watts link will transform the handling. The panhard bar setup changes the alignment as the suspension compressed and releases.
    But................


    There is now an IRS conversion for 4th gen’s. I’ll dig up the details but suspect it will be pricey. I do believe it’s bolt-in though.

    Under $6K for the rear end. Should handle well.


    EDIT: that not including the diff, that's an extra $1500

    EDIT EDIT: Total of $8,746.00, probably more than what the car is worth, but I@m not planning on selling it, so perhaps a worthy project when the car is garaged and only driven in the dry.

    That’s the one. I suspect the watts link would be sufficient for the street though.
    With the mods I performed my 4th gen had enough to stick with a mk5 VW Golf and was equal to my Corvette C5 Z06.
    The Z06 was the first production car to break 10minutes on the ‘ring IIRC so that should help you decide if IRS is worth the extra?
