greetings all

i am after some info on the Koni's that are in the back of my car & hope somebody hear can shed some light on them

as the car is at work & i am home or a couple of days i am unable to remove them the measure up what i alread have

i have the part numbers ect from the body of the shock but carnt seem to find any measurments of them on the net

the details that i know of that are on the body are as follows

8211 - 1126  

8703 SPA

1 ? 4-496


the 8211 i know is a steel-bodied, externally double-adjustable

as for the rest of the numbers i carnt find any info & am hopeing that somebody here may know or be able to point me in the general direction

I have an oppertunity to purchase a brand new pair of Koni Electric adjustable shock & if its a straight foward change i will buy them but if i have to make modifications to fit them well then i will stick with what i have

regards
rod

Rod I don't think they even make them anymore O:) ..I had a pair of them in my Vega and sent them back for a rebuild and they could not repair or rebuild them O:)  O:) ..That kind of pi$$ed me off as I had to pay for the shipping both ways for something they should have told me they can't rebuild anymore [-(  [-( ....SOOOOOOO Im done with them [-o<  =;

thanks for that Barry

it was only the measurements that i was looking for as i was to lazy to go into work & pull one from the car the measure it up

the weather has turned to $**t here so i may go in on the weekend & measure it up as i have an oppertunity to purchase an electric pair for the right money  ;-)  & if its a straight foward bolt in job then i will buy them but if i have to stuff around to make them fit then i will make do with what i have

thanks again

regards
rod

Rod,
I don't see alot of guys using Koni's anymore.  Guys with money use Strange and it you have alot of money then Stantuff is on there..
