@evilchargerfan thank you! This makes it much much easier. Do you by any chance also have the procedure and torque specs for the front struts? Looks like you and I are going down the same road.

On a random note, based on your username, are you from SD?




Compared to OE (worn ones), would these be more for performance or comfort? As this is my DD, I'm looking for more comfort than performance
Monroe will be stiffer, real rubber. If you using non-RFT, go Monroe. If you still using RFT, go OE.

Just finished installing Koni in the rear. Some things that I didn't notice until install:

1) The shocks are longer than OEM

2) The nut that holds the bushings all together is M12 1.25, not the OEM M12 1.5. Don't force it and accidentally cross thread it.

It's past midnight here but I'll post again for a first impression after driving. This might just be a trick of the mind, but already the rear seems more "supported" and "dampened" in a good way compared to before when I try bouncing the rear.
