Grant,

I just ordered a set of Koni Yellows as you did. Pulled them out of the box today to make sure nothing was damaged and that everything was good to go. I checked the fronts and they compress and rebound completely on their own but the rears were a different story. The rear strut only rebounds a few inches and then stops. In fact, even though the rears are both set on full soft they rebound at different rates? There is no damage to the damper, no fluid is leaking so I'm not sure what's up? Will you give yours a try and see if the rears rebound completely or if they stop and if the rate at which they rebound is symmetrical between the two. Thanks in advance

Adam, that isn't right. It's not uncommon for a defective unit to slip out the door. Contact your seller to see about swapping out the bad shock. I know for a fact that Koni is very easy to work with from the dealer's standpoint so warranty issues are no big deal.

If they have been laying in their side for a bit. It may take a little time for the to cycle thru. They should stiffen up once on the car and driven for a little. You might even notice the rear being a little softer than you would think they should be. Mine felt and did the same as yours. After some mile the did get stiffer.
 
I just found a set of Koni sports at the sale price of $629.95 and ordered a set :D http://www.stage3motorsports.com/KONI1114-2011-2014-Mustang-Koni-Complete-Sport-Shock-Strut-Kit.html

No personal experience with both products, but if both parts are made for same year mustangs, i dont see why they wouldn't. I believe there were shock length differences between the years and required the use of spacers if parts were mis-matched.

Adam- Sorry I missed this post...did the issue resolve itself?

Does anybody know if the Koni's will fit J&M Camber plates ???

Pretty sure they will. The J&M are very similar in design to the MM plates and look like they have spacers to use with either 05-10 cars and 11-14.
