    Default Ordering Koni Yellows & Prokits?

    Hi guys,

    I'm planning of purchasing Koni Yellows and Prokits for my setup, and I'm wondering where I can order them?

    I've looked at Garage16, and it comes out to just under 950$ for the Konis alone while the Koni website comes out to around 850$ CAD.

    I'm wondering how you guys have shopped for your setup?

    Thanks

    You could try Tire Rack, too. Don't know how that will work out with Shipping + Exch though

    Have you asked @Nextmod ? They are a sponsor on the forum and are typically competitive with pricing.

    Coilover isn't always better. They are time consuming to setup properly. As well if you do not effort into maintenance they can seize over the winter.

    One more thought @KevinM3 will you take advantage of the koni yellow adjustability? If not perhaps worth looking at koni Orange.

    It'll just be for Daily Driving, and no tracking in mind nor planned.

    This might help - http://www.turnology.com/news/choosi...-your-vehicle/ . I think the Koni Orange/STR.T maybe a less expensive solution for you.

    I had the Koni oranges and prokits on for a couple years and really enjoyed the setup. No problems in the winter at all but then I decided to go coilovers just for the adjustability. If you just want a mild drop and don't plan on going lower then it is a great setup.

    Thanks for the input! I saw your sale post on the setup and I thought that wouldve been a steal!

    If budget is not a problem, consider getting coilovers instead.

    I just paid $694 tax included for koni oranges from tdot performance not exactly cheap but I wont go coilovers here last time they seized solid from the salt koni yellows were 975+ tax but like someone said above if you wont take advantage of the adjustable dampening don't even bother with the yellows pot hole central around here and I don't track my car so I went with orange.

    Just to update my thread - and probably so late since summer season is over but hey its building season - I just grabbed a pair front oranges for $100 new in box from Garage16. They posted a special clearance on their IG page yesterday and grabbed the only set they had today. Such a steal!
