what to order for KONI

Hello,

I need to replace my koni yellow shocks, and I am wondering what parts do I have to order to put a new koni.
My car came with koni, but one of them is blown so I need to order the new one, and when I check GS, they only have the shock itself, not other parts like bearing, top mount and stuff.

Can I just order OEM parts from eeuroparts.com and assemble together with koni???

Any advices??

Thank you

You do not need anything fancy when installing the koni inserts/shocks. Just get the other parts from eeuro.

I remember hearing that Koni would revalve their shocks for free if you sent them back. Are you sure you can't just get the old ones redone?

3 things..

We have all the parts. Typically they are not needed so they are not all on the catalog. We do local service so we stock all the wear items too.

Should be lifetime warranty, can you get original receipt?

It is no problem for custom valved konis but should not be needed for a normal spring car.

i do not have the original receipt since the car came with it,,,,
i will ask koni about the life time warranty...i hope they fix it for me, then it's cheaper for me
well if they do the life time warranty, i don't know why we need the receipt..

Nick, i didn't know that the shock came with every assembly lol. good to know...i always email to GS, but i have never gotten any replys though...
