Konis at the front - what to do with the rear?
I recently installed 2 new Konis adjustables at the front of my car with 2 new lower control arms. Everything else is OEM including original springs all round. Now I find that the front is nice and firm and handles well but the back is too soft.
When I turn into a corner the front will sit down nicely turn the corner but then the back will start to roll the body over slightly pushing the front off course pushing it out making it understerry. The front will try and hang on but the back keeps trying to push it off course.
What I wanted to do naturally was just get 2 Konis for the back and make the back firm as well. But other people such as Storm say you dont need rear konis but just powerflex the back and it will be hard enough.
Im wondering if other people have other solutions to improve the back. I know everyone says koni eichbach front and rear but I dont want to lower the car as its not covered on my insurance also I dont want to spend too much money on the car.
I also tried increasing the tyre pressures in the back to make them very hard but that just made them crashy and bouncy.
Also Im wondering why everyone uses only 50% hardness on their Konis ? I put them on quiet hard. There on 3/4 turn from hard although everyone seems to use 50% hardness on this site I dont know why. In fact I could use full on hard and it wouldnt be too much of a problem but the backs are so soft it feels like 2 differnt cars front and back.
So if anyone has any other solutions to firm up the back can you let me know ?
Either Konis or powerflex or maybe ARB ?
