KONI SHOCKS....... adjustable???

Hey fellow Ford Freaks! :)
Ive just purchased Low-riding KiNG springs and im considering buying Koni adjustable shocks for my EF Fairmont... but i was wondering, to what extent are the shocks adjustable? Can it be adjusted in a short matter of time? Is it really worth it?

Response from anyone would be great.
Thnx

Hi,

They are really easy to adjust. (I will get really technical here...) there is a little knobby thing at the top, and you get a tool to turn it with.

One direction for firmer, the other direction for softer.

It takes longer to check your oil than it does to adjust the shocks...

Hi
The front are easy as the adjuster is located within quick reach but you have to fold the rear seat down and remove the panel or whatever you want to call it that separates the boot from the interior to get to the rears.
Not too much of a hassle but justs takes a little longer.

Having had these babies for months now, I can say nothing except to recommend them!!! The rears take a little longer to get to as mentioned, but the fronts, as Kell said checking the oil takes longer! It's also good fun to wow the mates by saying "hang on a sec, just gotta stiffen up the dampers" :)

Good fun and great performance. Two thumbs up!
