Got the Koni Yellows yesterday, but I realized I need to take my car to be inspected for the subframe recall before I modify it. That sucks. I will have to wait a couple days before I can install my suspension.

i got it installed, and the drop is pretty low but i don't know how it compares to H&R race.

I installed these with KONI STR.T shocks too with RE RSMs and the ride is pretty good

pics? a few of us are trying to find a good deal on several sets of the koni str.t struts/shocks
Are there any differences between sport and non sport suspensions when ordering the koni's? Mine is sport and my friend has two sith non sport factory setups. Thinking of pairing these at first with my stock sport springs and eventually trying out some h&r sports.

Why didn't you purchase the Turnermotorsports sway bars. They are Hotchis (spelled wrong?) with Teflon bushings, which require no lube...just wondering.

No TMS are H&R bars rebranded. Not the Hotchkis. Unless something has changed.

bumping an old thread. OP how do you like the setup?

I am considering these and re-using my bilstein sport shocks. My hr's are made for a non-sport and they barley dropped my car. I'm looking for the lowest but softest spring out there..

Thanks! - Jordan
