    Default Fuego Koni

    Got my shocks back after being re-re-valved,and i think I'm in the right ballpark now.I've no experience in describing suspension, but on a well known corner that used to have me squeeling and in danger of a neg driving ticket at 45 km, was a sinch at 60,with no tyre squeel,and no rubbing and no effort.Traveling along Pittwatter road, made up of mis-aligned concrete slabs, the tyre slapping and dash rattling is worse than with the OE.Overall the comfort is acceptable over cracks, excellent over longer bumps, and I'll have to wait until a trip around Akuna bay to report how it goes at speed over deformed road surfaces that have had me airbourn and nose scraping before.If I can work out the scanner, I'll post the dyno charts for the fuego OE,and the re-valved koni front/rear.
