Default Koni FSD/Swift?

Just curious if anyone is running this combo and thoughts on it. I've read that some are running FSD/Cobb with no problems. I figure that swift springs with the genwon is a similar drop to cobb it would work.

Sounds like you've already got this one all figured out then...I think Yellows would work better though.

Swift is stiffer and lower. FSDs need travel to work right. I'm sure it can be done but you're not going to get the benefit of the trick valving. Koni Yellow might be a better solution if you're looking for more conservative damping.

If OP had read he would already know that FSD and anything but the Cobb springs will NOT work properly. Go yellows or bilsteins.
