I am planning to replace mine with Koni when my stock shocks eventually go out, I think the perches are adjustable so maybe you could "lower" your car a little. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

The perches are part of the shocks. They're basically those circular grooves on the shock itself.



Nowadays most konis come with 2-3 perches. My older SP3's have 5 perches.

how do the front connect into the lower perch? you know the upside down U looking thing the strut slides into that goes over the cv shaft, or is that part of the strut? Im worried about that piece being seized to the strut
