Putting together the Koni Rear Shocks

Time to put the rear shocks together.

First, I'll set the ride to soft because I'll be doing mostly street driving.

The 350 lb springs are what arrived in the kit.

Pushing the button hidden under the dust cap will alllow the setting of the ride.

Then slide coil sleeve over the shock body.  Be sure to have the threaded side of the sleeve towards the piston.  The other side is to rest against the retaining ring.

Slide the coil over the shock body.

The snap ring pliers are needed to fasten the coil spring hat to the shock end.

I then threaded adjustment ring down to the spring to hold it in place.
