Default Race valve Koni Yellows w/ springs

Up for sale is my suspension from last year.

RACE valved Koni Yellows. I will try to find the shock dyno pages, but they were just revalved last year and have aproximately 1000 miles on them. Yes, that is accurate, I did one 300 mile roundtrip to a track day in Michigan, and one 30 miles away... and a few around town drives. The car is never driven.

Springs are unknown and most of their coating is gone, so identifying this is not going to happen. But I believe this was a Koni Cupkit format setup. They are stiffer than stock, slight drop. I'll put up some pictures so you can see it.

I will not be including the NB tophats that came with this setup. So realize that all pictures have the NB tophat (supposed to be like a 1/2" drop?).

These are on the car, and I will remove them for the serious buyer. Car is just waiting for me to start wrenching on it and in the garage, no more miles are being put on them.

ON car:



Few car height shots.

On 225 toyo RA1s


Asking price is $500 OBO (please don't lowball me, but I will accept good offers)
Set of new sports is ~560 (best ebay price i found)
Each RACE valved Koni is 280 a piece (good-win-racing)

They may not look pretty (shock body and spring), but the shocks are basically new on this rebuild and the springs work fine.

Rust grows hair on your chest; puts lead in your pencil. Consider disregarding the condition of the springs and focusing more on the shocks you'd be purchasing.

The springs are basically being included btw, as I will have no use for them in my next suspension plans... which I'm still figuring out (all i've settled on is spring rates :P )

Being sold by buyer. Contact me and I'll put you in touch with him.

Buyer is actually putting them up for sale. He wanted a set with C-Clips and didn't see these are the other format.

Someone get these, they are awesome shocks with this revalve.

These shocks literally have a trip from chicago to Gingerman (340 round trip), 1 day on track, 1 day of a few laps in the wet and a trip to/from Autobahn (80 mile round trip) and 3 sessions on track. Thats their life after the revalve.
