Best place to buy KONI shocks

Hey guys,
I want to purchase some KONI yellow shocks for my ride.
If you know of a retailer that carries them for a good price please let me know.

I believe these are the ones I need:

Front :
Left: 8741 1390LSport
Right: 8741 1390RSport

Rear:
8040 1271Sport

Thanks in advance!

Your best choice is....Bilstein...lol
Konis are ok but Bilsteins are way better.
Keep in mind though if you have Konis now that they are repairable up to 3 times.

I'm looking for 2 fronts as well - I haven't found anything cheaper than shox.com so far except for some shop in New Jersey here.

Has anyone noticed almost noone is selling Koni's now?

I know that but from my experience ( and i am talking about the yellow ones) once you have adjusted them a couple of times they stop being adjustable!
Saying that they are good performing as dampers. But if you are paying for adjustability that only works a certain time you might as well get a better shock absorber that aint adjustable!
Thats just the way i see it!

Thanks for the input.

I found these on eBay: http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...=STRK:MEWAX:IT
I want to know if the guy is willing to ship these from a residential address so that I could save on duties…

You can try www.shox.com. They're pricing is quite good and the shipping is VERY quick via DHL.
