Don't touch the Koni fronts
I bought a pair - lasted 6 months before one side leaked at the top. Koni replaced under guarantee (after a long argument) but I still had to pay re-fitting labour.
Took the car to a well-known Alfa mechanic who sets-up UK AROC racecars and he was astonished how soft they've become after 5k miles of road use - not track use. I know I live in a town full of speed-bumps but this is taking the xxxx
He also said the camber is set wrong - no wonder my car doesn't handle too well (check my earlier post on this subject). He reckons they were made wrong so he's going to have to remove and re-drill now they're out of guarantee
Rear shock are still stiff enough, and are 6 months older. But I'll never touch over-priced Koni again.
