Valving noise from KW is almost a hit and miss. Some kits have them and some don't.

Quieter twin tube dampers would be Koni's.

I have heard the squeaking noise from my KW when going over bumps. It like gas dispersing or something. Read around and people say that it is normal.

Don't hear it all the time, only when I go over a hard bump.

It's simply the fluid getting displaced.

So to bring up a question that was asked earlier in this thread...what is the difference with the Koni whites vs. yellows? Or are the whites just the "newer" version?

Koni Whites are exclusively from TC Kline Racing and any of their authorized dealers. We are one of them.

Koni White struts are fully threaded body front struts for a coil over type setup and better valving than just the typical off of the shelf yellows.

The rear white dampers have better valving and a shorter body for more compression travel(better for lowered cars).
