So one thing about the Koni shocks that confuses me is that when you're adjusting the dampening, there are no "clicks", just a turn of the knob (i.e., people will say "one complete turn", "two complete turns", etc...)... If there are no clicks, how are you supposed to know that one side is exactly equal to the other side when adjusting?

make a hash mark with a paint pen or file a small notch or something on each knob when maxed out counter clockwise and then count your turns and verify the hash marks point at the same clock position. For the rear I think you rotate the whole shock body, you can probably use the label as a visual reference or make a mark if you like that better.

Interesting. I wonder why Koni designed it like that as opposed to a more user-friendly design.

You simply cannot make a statement like that and not provide proof.

My car is all nice and clean. I washed it this morning.

And my suspension search continues... The HPA coils are wonderful, but for half the price, I can get Koni Yellows and H&R sport springs. It's something that I'm really considering now. The only thing that bothers me (somewhat) is that the H&R springs are not linear. After doing some research on linear vs. progressive springs, I really want to go with linear, but Harold from HPA tells me that the Swift springs are designed for coilover use. I don't know of any other linear springs that would work with the Koni Yellows.

Nope. Just tap power from the front reading light area. Takes about 30 minutes.
