How do you adjust the damping to make them stiffer? I've got the koni adjustable struts with perrin springs and i want to make the front end a little more stiff to reduce the body roll during turn in. Does it have anything to do with the bolt on top of the strut tower?????


K THANKS BYE!

I have rear koni yellow inserts. They're adjustable from the top of the strut. There should be this flat pin on top and from that, you use the koni plastic thing or some pliers to turn it from stiff to soft.

Do you have the inserts? I think they only made the inserts for our car.

umm.....honestly i don't know. i bought the car with the struts and springs on. but the housing is red. and the bolt on the strut top has four sections that go from 1-4 and are different colors so i'm guessing there's something to do with that for adjusting?

i think you've got KYB AGX's... mine are red too, and the fronts have coloured numbers 1-4 on the top of the strut. from what i know of koni's they only come in yellow.

Koni "classic" can come in red....but I don't think they have an application for Subaru in that model. You probably have the AGX but were told it has Koni.

To adjust the AGX, use a small screwdriver to press down and turn the pointer toward 4. You'll know it's in position when it pops back up flush with the top.

and make absolutely sure you push down, then turn and not just try to turn the dial. if you dont push down and turn you can ruin your struts.

for reference, 1 is the softest, 4 is the hardest.

there are two koni models, koni red and koni yellow. red being the entry level strut and yellow the premium. the red is only adjustable off the car in a vise, and the yellow is adjustable at the strut tower top.

im not sure if there is a red for imprezas. anyway, sounds like you have KYB AGX.
