    Can I replace just the rear shocks on my 2002 330i with Koni Yellow adjustable dampers? I’d like to do all four corners but I have two older BMWs and I’ve already spent far more on preventative maintenance this year than I’d planned. The fronts will probably have to wait until the spring and...

    Hi everyone! I've been looking for the perfect for me suspension set up for the past 8 months and finally found a set - Bilstein B14 PSS. Unfortunately, there seems to be a world-wide backorder, and won't be available until mid-July. Since I want to get at least one auto-x/track-day in this...

    I need to replace my front struts, and I was wondering what everybody thinks of Bilstein vs Koni struts. Most people I've seen on the forum recommend Bilstein, but is that because it's just the best for the money, or because it's the best period? Konis are sometimes twice as expensive (the ones...

    Hey everyone! So I finally got around to overhauling my suspension this past weekend - cracked right rear spring (surprise surprise!). I ended up putting in Koni Yellow Sports with Eibach Prokit springs, and also replaced my tie rods (talk about tight quarters with that pesky subframe in the...

    Hi all, Now that coilovers are in, the koni/ eibach combo is out. This has served me well for the past 30k km but its time to get something more focused. This is an excellent upgrade for anyone looking to improve on the factory suspension without making compromises. Together with a 30mm...
  7. DIY: Do It Yourself
    Hi fanatics, I am installing a set of Koni Sports this weekend and I am stumped as to where a particular washer is supposed to go. The washers in question came packaged with the front struts along with the white plastic spacer/vent and the top lock nut. It is the split metal washer at the top...

    Hi Bimmers: I just got a leak of my factory build rear shocks so I want to to some upgrade on them. By the way, it is a 06 325Ci convertible (E46). I do look up the orange shock on their website, they said this item fit all 99-05 3 series except M3, Xi and Wagon. The 06 convertible is also an...

    Hello, Today I noticed that the right-rear side of my car sits lower than the opposite side. Upon closer inspection it seems as though one shock was replaced while the other side wasn't. :banghead: I'm now out to fix this and I was wondering if I should do all 4 corners, or just the rear. If I...

    Hello all, I have a 05 ZHP vert and I am doing a complete suspension refresh. I have already decided I am replacing my shocks and struts with Koni yellow sports and know that I want some amount more of drop then my current set up (zhp suspension) so I am deciding on springs now. The problem is...

    Koni Str.t + Eibach Sportlines combo Maybe it's just me but this doesn't look like it fits/lines up correctly... Am I missing something? or does the rubber insulator (pictured with yellow arrow) provide the stopper needed? I know I should have gone with different struts but I got a good deal...

    The Specifics: 2002 330Ci Sport Package Upgraded to M3 Wheels - Staggered I am now officially replacing my shocks. I have 2 questions: 1. How will the Koni STR.T shocks compare to the factory stock sport suspension? 2. Will the Koni STR.T shocks even work with my current stock sport suspension...

    Got an alignment and the numbers speak for themselves... What am I going to do to fix this insanity? I will be removing my stock 130k+ mile struts (I don't know how they've lasted this long, and still don't feel AWFUL) and I will be replacing them with these...

    Hey guys, So just hit 125k and figured its time for a suspension refresh. i've been researching and found the Koni STR.T for a decent price. I have searched and found many reviews on them, but not many when compared to OEM sport suspension. So how do these compare with stock sports suspension...

    Has anyone run Koni adjustable (yellow) Sport shocks/ struts with the OEM ZHP / Sport package springs? - Intersested in feedback on this set-up - Any impact to ride height (believe there should be none)? - Recommended settings for street application? Thanks! :thumbsup:

    I've been browsing for the better part of an hour and I can't find anybody (XI or otherwise) who's using stock springs with Koni Yellows! Mine has 87,000 miles and the suspension feels pretty rough. I like the stock ride height and comfort, but being able to increase dampening for "spirited...

    About to purchase a pair of used Koni shocks, what kind of mileage/life expectancy can you get out of them? :hmm: I do understand this is based on how hard the previous owner pushed them to. Just looking for a general ballpark on when I should expect to replace them again.

    Posting same question I asked over at bf.com. Planning to put Koni yellows on my ZHP, want to know which rear shock to use because Koni recommends two different models, the 8040-1250 and 8040-1271. Is the difference in length, valving or both? Can the Koni 8040-1250Sport rear shocks be used...

    Alright guys. I just purchased an '02 325ci and it is very low. I love how it looks and rides, but it's just not practical. I want to keep the firmness, but I'd like to have it higher. The car has these shocks: Click Here. I suppose the springs came with the shocks? I do not know much about...
