These Koni shock have not been released yet but lets just say we have quite the large order already in with Koni for the fifth gen shocks so when they are available we will have them.

We sell a ton of Koni shock for the 4th gen f-body and the Mustang market so we have an awesome relationship with them. Their customer service is amazing and they arguably have some of the best shocks available. I am very excited about these shocks they are going to be releasing for the new Camaros.

I looking forward to these being released. I don't plan on going coilover for a while.

This. The Koni shocks for the Camaro have been vaporware since 2010. I can't believe they have waited so long but once they are released I think they will quickly become the universal option.

Just remember with the Koni Adjustables, they are only rebound adjustable, the compression is preset.

The OE struts for the Camaro are actually pretty good, and may be one of the reasons for the delay on the aftermarket struts.

They will be a nice affordable option between the factory struts/shocks and coil-overs. It will be nice to have another option available for the people that aren't interested in messing around with coil-overs.

Exactly! Coils are a little extreme for my needs at the moment and I'd like something better than OEM. It would be a nice medium.

When I get some more information on when these will be released and when we will be able to start shipping them I will let you guys know.
