These struts basically performed as I had hoped. They replaced a set of Tokico non-adjustables, which were also good, but had worn out. -- Review submitted: 2013-08-23

The Koni Streets replaced some worn out Tokicos which had lost their dampening. The new Konis (front and rear) seem to be a good match for my Ford Motorsport "C" springs and the Eibach rear sway bar. My car is lowered about 1.5" Front and 0.75" Rear. The bad bounce and rebound which had crept in with my old Tokicos has been remedied, and the handling is more predictable now. (The Tokicos were also good; but they had just worn out.) Overall, I like the new Konis and thought the pricing was reasonable. -- Review submitted: 2012-10-22

From Eibach Pro Damper to Koni Street.t, same result... Good ride for 6 months and then the ride starts to deteriorate to riding on the springs at the end with no more than 12000 miles (ridiculuous). What s next? Maybe I ll try the Bilstein HD. I already tried Tokico, AGX, KYG... I learned my lesson, on my next car I won t mess with the suspension. -- Review submitted: 2012-04-18

I purchased these from Tire Rack for my girlfriend s 330i sport sedan as a OE replacememnt. Partly because of the cost and mostly the brand. I have been nicely surprised on the ride quality and performance. Everday driveing is excellent and even ran the car at Friday night drags at Atlanta Motor Speedway. They do an 1/8 mile run pinks style on pit road. So squat was definitley reduced on those runs and dive while under hard braking. Also I was able to do the long course at Sebring while at a Porsche club event with a friend. They let you do some pace laps but everyone fades back so can see what their car has and these shocks were very good especially if you know Sebring, its bumby in many spots but these did a great job on both the smooth and the rough stuff. I just purchased a 2004 330i ZHP performance package and these are going on it. They are a great value and more than good for track. If you can afford to do alot of track and have a second car then you can opt for a more aggressive package. -- Review submitted: 2012-02-18

Absolutely disappointed!!!

I installed these 2 yrs ago and the rear has already failed.

They are fully compressed and have zero return.

Even when they were functional, the slightest crack on the road was felt.

Spend the extra $10 and get a far better product.

My original struts were worn out. Since it was time to replace them, I wanted a sportier set-up without the "slammed" look. Also, since the streets fill with water when it rains hard, the last thing I need is to have the car much lower. This combination is a vast improvement- even over the as-new original setup. Cornering is much flatter, wallowing is non-existant, nose-dive and rear-squat have been drastically reduced - all while keeping a decent ride and plently of suspension travel for large bumps/potholes or when the car/trunk is full of people/stuff. Since my Civic is the LX, there is no rear anti-sway bar so I don''t think I''d see the benefit from going lower without making the control arm swap necessary to install a rear sway bar anyway. Overall, I am very pleased with the ride/handling tradeoff this suspension setup provides me for my daily driver. If I was into racing/auto-crossing, then that would be different, but then again, I''d modify a different car if that was the case.... -- Review submitted: 2009-10-07
