Koni's For Cheap??

Hey guys

found a site that sells Koni sport shocks for the tbird at a lower price than shox.com

i emailed them to doublecheck part numbers, and Koni says all their shocks are adjustable..

i also asked if they would do a discount on a group order, so lets see what they say

Current price at xshocks.com is $425 + $35 shipping = $460 for those that can't add

Shox.com is approx $504, free shipping usually, doesn't count member discount if applicable, or if applied depending who you talk to apparently..

I'll keep ya updated, and if they say yes, i'll contact keith to see about setting up a GP

according to koni... all their shocks feature adjustability

but i asked him just to check..

if we can get 10 i think he will probably go for it.. but this is speculation, nothing official till i run it by keith after this guy says yes/no

I'm also in line for a set of Bilsteins, but I've thrown around this idea too....

Yup! I'd be interested, I've been down this road before, it seems to me Koni has a road block on pricing...but if someone can get around it...I'm in!!! They do have an awsome shock!! PZ

Yeah, yeah I know, I'm resurrecting this thread... just wondering if this is still in the work.. I'm looking at Koni's in the next few weeks and I'd be interested. If not, well the xshocks.com price is still pretty good.

I called out to Xshocks to see if they had them in stock (because Shox.com, the more reputable company, would match that price if I could give them a phone number of someone who had them in stock at a lower price)......and they didn't have them in stock. Just the quick question for the guy over the phone, not sure I'd send my money out there or not.

I also called Xshocks about them. He told me that they have had them on order for quite awhile now, and could not give me a date as to when they would be in.
