A Brand New Shock

6/26/00 A Brand New Shock

I got my shock in the mail from Koni today. It looks great, with not a leak to be found. Paul from Koni included the old shock body in the shipment so I could keep the stamped numbers as a reference for the future. I can also see how he tried to weld the leaking hole shut without success. I’m glad Paul took the time and patience to reconstruct a new shock.

There are subtle differences in the old construction of the shock compared to the new shock Koni fabricated, but if you don’t have the original to compare, one would never know this shock was remade. Once refitted with a spring, and installed in the car, no one will know except you and me. Hopefully, this ends the worry of another area in my car for the next thirty years!
