Anyone having Koni Yellows set at full soft ?

Hi,

I will install a set of Koni Sports on my car along with Eibach Pro-Kit springs and I would like to know if anyone has them set at full soft and how does the "full soft" setting compare to the stock M-sport dampers ? I am looking to a bit more hardness over M-Sport but not much, we have quite bad roads here and I don't track my car.

I have Koni Yellow's on H&R sport springs.

I ran the Koni's at variable positions, from soft to hard and settled on 15% from the firmest option, per my preference.

While adjusting, the softer end of these Koni's emulated my stock sport suspension. It has hard to even tell I had upgrade shocks/struts.

If comfort is a concern, it should not be. You won't have any problems on these in the softer settings. Hell, even the firmest setting leaves me begging for more.

You should never run an adjustable damper at full soft, especially with uprated springs as the rebound damping will not be adequate. I found a 50% setting from full hard was like a limousine compared to the M-sport suspension.
