The KYBs are way too stiff, IMHO. I'd like to yank them from my car and
replace them with hydraulics. The Konis are adjustable; you have to
fully depress them, then twist the top and bottom halves to set the
adjustment. They are lifetime warranty, and can be rebuilt by Koni if
you can wait. I would heartily recommend the Konis over the KYBs any
