Sounds great, thanks for the feedback. Ok so I'll go with position no.2 for the front and rear Koni shocks.
I'll update when I get the install done in early Jan.

Brian, one more quick question, gathering information before the kit gets installed in early Jan.

Are there spring isolators (that spiral rubber stuff) that need to be transferred from the stock springs to the new Goodwin ones ?

Asking now just that I know with certainty so not to have any potential rattling later. Thanks.

If there are spring isolators on your stock springs you indeed transfer them.

Hey Brian,

Is there a remote damper adjuster available for the Koni rear shocks ? It would be nice to adjust the rear dampers with the trunk trim installed.

I see that there is a Ohlin one, something similar that would work on the Koni's ?

Nothing available for the KONI that I know of. But I have all the trunk stuff installed and I still adjust my Koni Sport shocks. At autocross practice today and I adjusted the rears at least 5 times trying to get a handle on the new surface we will be running this year for our local SCCA events. I skipped putting back one or two plastic tabs but all the plastic trunk liner is there and skipping a tab or two allows me to quickly push past the liner and make the adjustment.

Sorry to resurrect this thread. My brother is finally going to attempt this install, along with the Roadstersport springs. By the fault, both front and rears came setup on top perches (number one). Any reason the the rear shocks are setup one position lower? For example, Front perch: 2, Rear perch :3; What will an all arount perch 1 will do for the four shocks? Thanks!

I am really not clear why Koni made the decision they did with perch positions, they have explained it to me, and I really still don't get why they did it the way they did.
