Koni Yellows will be a nice upgrade for you.

I have koni yellows and ground control coilover and Hate them. They are to bouncy. I had sportline kit like you and it was awesome but to much sway. My 240 has tein basics and i love them. Why does everyone love the koni yellow setup?

If you think they're bouncy it's because:

A.) You have the wrong rates.
B.) You have the dampening wrong.
C.) You don't know what you're talking about or what you are in for.

The lower you are, the stiffer the springs have to be and the more aggressive the valving on the shocks is. People love them because the tolerances of the shocks themselves are much higher than others, they're made of steel (not crappy aluminum), and they have a LIFETIME WARRANTY. Konis are valved VERY well for the price so if you're complaining about them sell them to someone else because you probably don't deserve them.

^^^^BlaHHHHHHHHHH... is all i heard.

i guess i am just picky. 6thaccord98 i am just telling you what i feel about them so dont let that keep you from buying them. I have had many suspension setups and this is the worst for me. They do handle amazing in the cornering though and obviously my car is a daily driver so i am not going around corners at warp speed on the way to work. Lots of people love the yellows and lots of people say stay away from skunk 2

hope this helps
