Koni shocks
#1
I want to order KONI shocks for my 72 Grandé, rear and front, but can't find the right references. It seems that they no longer exist for 71-73 Stangs Sad
Any idea ? Which KONIs do you guys use ?
Thanks a lot.

Koni reds for street, some autocross. If more serious, yellows or double adjustables.
I have a set of reds for my '73 CJ Mach I. Recently got a set for a '65 convertible I'm building.
Bought the most recent ones thru tirerack.com. They had a great price and even got them on sale.

It seems the rears are still available but not the front (Koni north america site). I would avoid using two different kinds of shock if possible. You might consider Edelbrock or KYB shocks. Chuck

I have a old set of the red/orange ones on my 72 Mach1. They are good for the track and autocrosses and okay for the street. The only downside is they are very expensive and the 71-73 fronts are obsolete.

If you want to burn some Tall dollars go with Bilstein.
I am not a professional driver so probably could not tell
the difference between Bilstein and KYB which is what I use
on my '71 M-code Grandé with toploader and competition
suspension package. The KYBs work great and are not that
expensive.

I put a set of KYB GR2's on mine. They were cheap from rock auto and ride nicer than worn out original shocks. Tongue

If you want koni's you could order them for a `70 and buy `70 shock tower mounts. I did this on a `66 comet and it worked well. I'm also doing this to my `73 mach but with bilsteins.

Just to say I finally ordered 65 to 70 Mustang Koni's with the matching shock tower caps and just mounted them, works great Smile
