Browse around but a quick Google-fu revealed https://www.lmperformance.com/ sells the following:Where are people purchasing their Koni Yellow's from? FCP Euro has them for $693 but it seems Koni has a 20% sale but I can't seem a place that has their sale and the Koni Yellow's available. Probably because they aren't on sale...Lol
TireRack has them for a hair under $600. Thanks for this!Where are people purchasing their Koni Yellow's from? FCP Euro has them for $693 but it seems Koni has a 20% sale but I can't seem a place that has their sale and the Koni Yellow's available. Probably because they aren't on sale...Lol
Thanks, I’m normally good with Google but I was looking for the part number that was on FCP’s site.
I got my yellows installed to pair with my Eibach Sportlines and they feel fantastic. I started them out at a half turn from full soft, a little too stiff for my daily commute with the Sportlines, but they still soaked up a lot of the minor road imperfections. I have since softened up the fronts to about 10% off full and will change the rears when I do a rear sway bar.
Now onto the rear sway bar. Softening up shocks has definitely added some body roll, but the ride is buttery smooth up front. I assume that when I soften up the rears it will add a bit more roll, so I'm wondering if there's a certain size RSB I should go with. 22-23mm or a 24-25mm bar. I will more than likely be adding Superpro rear links, though I've heard good things about the Moog links too. Any advice on the right size bar to reduce the body roll added from softening the shocks?

True, I like oversteer, so don't mind the larger bars, but it's probably a good idea to gravitate a little smaller if you're not good with the back end coming out to say hi fairly often.@bentin 's response is on the right path. I'd suggest something in the 24-25mm range. The bigger bars can be a bit much for many drivers. They can provoke oversteer pretty easily.
There's a significant difference in stiffness with an increase on diameter of just 1mm. I'd look up the formula, but I'm feeling lazy at the moment. Trust me on this.
if it's for street only and you don't disable ESC, stiffer bars should be fine since the ESC should correct bad things....but take it easy in the rain.BUMP!!! Anyone have some advice on which rear sway bar to go with? See below
I did APR springs with stock struts. Had ssme issue. Mount/ bearing weren't seated correctly.I'm having a big problem with mine now. Lots of squeaks and at work (VW dealer) we put the car on the alignment rack to take a look. With the suspension unloaded we can grab the spring, slightly compress it by hand and spin it freely. Techs are saying the factory lower spring seats do not fit in the Koni lower mount. They're too short (?) so there's not enough tension on the spring and it's moving.
Have you guys heard of this? The springs are Eibach Sportlines. I've never head of this before. Going to reach out to both Eibach and Koni to see if they make bigger spring seats.
Edit: Could this possibly be if the strut is too low in the knuckle? I had one of our techs do the install so I didn't watch him
Edit 2: Just spoke to one of the master techs at Eibach and he said he thinks the new mount/bearing were not seated properly. Thoughts??????
