Pre-Sale! KONI Sport Adjustable Gas Strut, Front, 79-83 280ZX
|Quantity in Basket:none|
Motorsport has joined forces with KONI to create an exciting new product; one of the most requested upgrades for early Z-Cars. Completely new, constructed specifically for 70-83 240Z, 260Z, 280Z, & 280ZX, and available exclusively at Motorsport, these externally-rebound-adjustable, twin-tube low pressure gas-charged KONI Sport Yellow Spring Seats/Struts are designed for use on both stock & modified street cars as well as autocross & track day cars. Built to give a good balance of street ride quality and handling at the soft end of the adjustment range, the KONI Sports can easily be tuned up to nearly double the rebound damping force for more aggressive control needs: simply open the hood or rear hatch and turn the KONI adjuster knob shown above (see video below). Not only can you tailor the struts to your local driving conditions and to your taste, you can also quickly and easily change the settings and have a blast at a weekend autocross or mountain run, then easily re-set them for a relaxed ride home. Whatever suspension behavior you need is literally at your fingertips. If you race at different tracks and on differing conditions, the adjustable damping gives you an edge in setting up your car for a specific track or autocross course. The strut kits are sold individually (1 required per vehicle "corner", 4 total required per car). More images, data, road test results, and video to come soon.
Sold individually. Purchasing a quantity of 1 includes 1 Strut Cartridge, 1 Hardware Pack, 1 Adjuster Knob, and instructions. A quantity of 2 would be required to complete the front of your ZX. See Related Items below for the rear Spring Seats/Struts.
We were hopeful that the first shipment for 79-83 280ZX would arrive in the U.S. this May or June. Koni needed to invest a few extra weeks making sure that the unique 280ZX design was correct, and they have been delayed. We've been told they are in production now (as of August, 2019), and that they should hopefully make it to our shores sometime in September. Thank you for your patience. To reserve your Koni Sports from the first shipment, you can (pre) order them now. If you order using your credit card, we will not charge you until your struts arrive and are shipped to you. If you choose to pay with PayPal (not recommended for a pre-sale), know that PayPal will charge you the full amount up front immediately.
Renowned Artist & Z Race Car Owner/Driver Hector Cademartori was key in the initial testing of the Koni Sport Yellow Z Struts. Hector and a KONI development engineer used a street Z that was subjected to various trials, from relaxed street driving to all-out performance. See what Hector has to say here.
