Imagine the Koni Yellow adjustables, oh boy. Hopefully Koni will get a hold of clips like this and add more of their good stuff to the table. If only Eibach would make sportline springs for our cars to pair up with Koni yellows for true track duty.

Also guys you can use Camber plates with stock style struts all you need is a tall ERS style Eibach spring along with a Coilover spring perch adapter on the strut base like BMW guys used when doing coilover perch conversions with their stock struts/shocks.

The orange do great. Unless the yellow are externally adjustable I wouldn't mess with them. You have to take the lca down from one side to gey the bottom of the shock out. Its too much of a pain to do track side. Coil overs would be best but overall it did great on worn out nt05 and a rusty driver
