    Hi,

    Do I go Koni FSD & Koni Springs?
    OR
    H&R Sport Kit?

    To be honest I'm leaning more toward the H&R Kit as it suits what I'm looking for.

    Whats the general feedback on this? Koni VS H&R

    I've just purchased FSD's and will be using them with std springs. I get them fitted on Thurs - hoping this combo will work really well along with H&R ARB's. I will give a full write up then.

    Aky I would be interested to know what you think as I have H&R ARB's on standard suspension. I plan to change to FSD's but unsure of which springs to get.

    Can you measure height before, after and a few weeks later as I have heard ride height goes up after?

    Is the ride much harder than standard with H&R?

    It is stiffer but it's not stupidly stiff or bouncey!

    Well Peeps,

    FSD's arrived today with Koni 30mm springs.
    LARKSPEED had the best deal!

    Should have them fitted by next week.
    I also have to replace both sets of front & rear bushes as there screwed.

    The car currently bounces like I'm on water and each arch/wheel/floor measurement is all over the shop!

    Once its all sorted I will post a write up.

    Well the Koni's are on and it feels so much better.
    Still unsure if there is something else not quite right on the suspension.
    I know I need the bushes sorted but like I say its loads better.
