SS #670 Modifications:
Shocks and struts
I ordered SS #670 with the Bilstein Y2Y suspension package but after about 50K miles I decided it was time for an upgrade and bought a set of Koni Sport dual adjustable struts and shocks. The part numbers are 8242-1005 SP1 for the front and 8242-1006 SP1 for the rear.
|Koni vs. Bilstein||Rear Koni installed|
The front struts are a pain in the ass to install because you have to pop the upper steering knuckle loose, remove the strut assembly and use a spring compressor. The rears are totally easy and can probably be swapped without even jacking the car up!
The first set of rear shocks I received was defective; they would puke oil whenever the rebound was adjusted. Koni warranted them no problem but I did have to pay return shipping for the defective units.
