Koni raid shocks for the Xterra?? I see the Toyotas have those as an option. Haven't heard much about them though.

Can anyone find a listing for Koni shocks/struts for a Nissan Frontier or Xterra on their web site?

With only 3 employees I guess their talent pool is a little shallow. They should contract PR out to Sturmvoik - as that is the last video of theirs I will likely try to watch. I do need new front suspension though so I am looking forward to seeing what they have, price points, etc.

You can search Koni raid shocks and find the product lists.

Koni was my preferred on my mazdaspeed since I didn't want it to ride like shit on road and I have not seen a single set of coilovers that didn't jar your spine on ride. Serious complaint about having to remove the rears to adjust rebound. Other than that they were fantastic but I'd guess these will be very different then street use. No way they will be that stiff.

Also, I don't think anyone will really defend 5100s for the Xterra as being good riding. They are not valved correctly for our vehicle.

Exactly! What’s the point if you have to disassemble the suspension to adjust it. Maybe I’ll shoot them an email.
Disassemble the suspension? You remove the bottom shock mount bolt, swing the shock down, spin it a few times, rebolt it to the mount. Not sure what is hard about that, honestly :p You could do it on a trail with a hi-lift. The fact that you can do it at all is impressive. You can't adjust damping with 5100s, OMEs, Ranchos, etc.

According to ADO, they are exclusive dealers for these shocks for Xterras/Frontiers. Not sure if that means they are the ONLY dealers, but maybe that's why they aren't found on Koni's site at the moment? Or like Sturmvoik said, they just aren't up yet since they were just announced.

haha )))

yeah.. I in need to full suspension rebuild this year... hopefully.. not that I found out about those new shocks coming.. I am on hold.... thinking to wait and see with what kind of shocks/kit they will come out


and yeah guys ... let along they have to run their company and they have to shoot / edit videos.. and trust me.. edit videos takes time its not that easy at all and most of all it takes time and alot of it..


as to their stream.. I mean... its just like any stream... what do you want... ? some RGB lights ? 🤣

I've found these in the past browsing international eBay. A set of four would run me $900CAD, then I'd need another $170+ for lift coils. For that kind of money I'd be going with the Fox 2.0 setup.

That’s his opinion, so who cares?
Maybe your commentary should be left inside your head?
