 i to have encounter this problem in the past, and, kyb's seem to soften after a
few thousand miles ( acutally i was hoping they wouldn't, i like firm as a matter
of personal taste ). so if you keep your teeth together for a few months, i think
you'll be fine. the difference between koni, and, kyb, is in the
construction/design. they both will keep tires planted on the road to a similar
degree. the koni's do it with control, the kyb's do it with a high pressure gas
cartridge, and, restrictive valving. the cliche "you get what you pay for"
definitely applies here.
