For those looking for an alternative to stock shocks or without spending the big $$$ for some other brands, the FSD's do a great job.

What adjustment is there for height or corner balancing on these shocks?

Mike - I believe the rears are fixed and the fronts have an adjustment collar. I've seen different answers on the warranty. Supposed to work with both stock and lowering springs. Several threads here in the last year or so. I'm on the fence, but the price is hard to beat for what I really need.

That is correct, only the front shocks have threads. Rears are fixed. They will work with lowering springs but Koni advises not to lower more than 30mm from ROW standard height as the FSD technogology might suffer from more lowering.

If you use M033/M030 or H&R springs you are within the 30mm limit.

All this info is straight from the R&D dept. of Koni headquarters in Holland.

That is quite limiting - why on earth would they do that? So you cannot do RS heights then?

Sure you can, but they do not guarantee that the FSD system will function as it was designed. I think that they are simply honest about their product, any shock will suffer from performance loss the more you operate outside of the design parameters.

But RS height is 40 mm below ROW height so only 10mm outside the limit that Koni advises.

Personally I would not choose a Koni FSD if you want RS height, I think the Bilstein HD is more suited to that kind of lowering.
