This Koni suspension is totally dope - Sharing the DIY here. I hope I am not posting in the wrong area.

Anyway here is how to install the rear Ground Control/ Koni adjustable kit.

This kit is great because it offers the top performance of and it is
easily adjustable unlike the conventional Koni kits which are a major
PITA to adjust.

The installation involves

-removing the existing shock and reinstalling the empty rear shock mount
to use it as a template to drill a pilot hole in the wheel well to mark
the location where to drill a 1 1/4" hole

- removing the mount and using a 1 1/4" hole saw and drilling out the well

- widening the hole in the rear shock mount to 1/2" by drilling it out with a 1/2" bit

- reinstalling everything back like a normal rear suspension install

- cutting a small door in the side panel over the rear well to access
the location of hole where the adjustment screw protrudes to be able to
adjust the rears without taking them out of the car.

and now some photos

Sorry mate, I don't know what ARB's are? My kit is from Ground Control

They take a Koni Sport kit and they customize is w/ Eicbach springs and their own components. It's tops. Most race cars around here use their kits.

PS, If you mean RSB (rear sway bar), I am using a 28mm newspeed RSB.

Tnx for the compliment ..

Do you drill free hand ? I think a bench drill would be a lot better , and how about a nice tough of primer to the new hole and a rubber grommet to finish it off ?[H]

Drill press would certainly better if I had one but had to make do with a hand one cuz that's all I have... worked fine though... rubber grommet is a GREAT idea... tnx
