fronts are real easy you just turn a dial, rears you have to take the bottom bolt off and remove the foam rubber stop , push all the way in and turn.

Don't think he was asking how to adjust Koni's rather - what setting (how much to twist dial) - since he is using Koni's in front and bilstein in rear. I had the same question about where to adjust my Koni's when I recieved them

not sure how they will match up the the bilstein's as i said the fronts are very easy, start at the softest setting and try them to the firmest till you feel they match.

If I missed that someone else already mentioned this excuse me as I am in Shenzen, China for a few weeks and the time difference always messes with me.

Unless you are upgrading the rear torsion bars or adding helper coil-overs in the rear, don't go over 200lbs for the front spring rate. These cars already understeer from the factory. More spring rate in the front without upping the rear REALLY makes that worse.

Just my two cents.
