You do have to smoosh the KYB shocks closed to put them in but they're non-adjustable. I find them a bit too bouncy on my cars but everyone has their own preferences. Let us know how you like them.

Konis and GAZ and SPAX are the adjustable ones, Konis are no longer made but can occasionally be found used.

Hey, maybe we, as a club, should write Koni and see if they'd be willing to do another run? Hmmmm. Probably a minimum order of 1000 pairs though. :-)

If anyone has replace their rear shocks with KG5550 can you give me any tips.

Just bought them and all I have is a brocher with a diagram.

How do you adjust them? and why adjust them from the factory settings?

Any problems with the install? otther than the fact that the top end is not in

the boot.
