Koni STR.T shocks available for 93-02 fbody!

For those who are looking for good shocks for their 4th gen fbodies that plan on lowering their vehicle. Koni has somewhat recently released non-adjustable shocks for the 4th gens. They're suitable for lowering springs, unlike bilsteins. This is a great alternative if you want koni's, but do not want to spend about a grand on shocks. Front ones are $100 a piece and rear ones are $94 a piece. Sam Strano is carrying them also. Figured I would post this up since I don't believe it has been mentioned here before. http://www.koni-na.com/uploads/KONI%...0MSRP%20PR.pdf

Took them long enough... They used to have a lot of interest but everybody gave up on them like 4 years ago when they never got released or even an ETA, just a vague "coming soon" note and an unobtainable part number.

Yeah, just back in July this year, I saw Sam Strano post saying that they weren't released. So they're pretty new now.

Mine is. I hear a lot of complaints that Bilsteins wont work well when lowered but other than Konis they one of the best and those who actually have them rarely complain.

That's what I'm getting at. If his car isn't lowered then it's comparing apples and oranges.

The Bilstein's do fine for a while....but they will break down faster with the higher spring rate of lowering springs.

Well yeah, eibach prokit and the slp billstiens in all three cars. They have seen daily driving use for about 3 years now and have been in two car wrecks and still work fine.

Got mine for $384.99 from strano performance, I think they are even cheaper through them now
