A set of hopefully still fresh Koni Yellows in a few days, at any rate.

A question for those that already have them: What should I be looking for/what should be included? Is it anything beyond the 4 shocks themselves?

I don't know a thing about them, so any info or general advice would be most helpful.

go new. you never know what shape they are in. its like ~500ish new. you pay 3-400 used, one blows, you could have had a new set....

They shouldn't be that old - just a year/20k km on them, and the seller is reputable enough not to lie about that.

New parts are great, but this stuff is a bit cheaper than new :p

buy shocks new... i got screwed over not to long ago, buying KYB AGX that were hardly used..

lets just say my stock shocks with 140k on them, retracted a hell of a lot faster then the AGX's i recieved, and this was from a "good reputable seller"

I'll definitely keep you guys in mind when one of the shocks does blow so you can rightfully gloat that you warned me. :)

I'll probably still pick em up though. I'd be looking at C$800 for a new set, so I'm saving a decent bit of money here...until they blow up, of course.
