Hey guys thinking of replacing my 6 year old koni yelloews with coilovers
has anyone had any experiance with pedders or WA Suspension coilovers i only want the frounts
but from what i can find pedders only offer them as a full kit ,but i do like the look of the WA suspesion coilover
or does anyone know where i can get my konis rebuilt

Pretty sure Pedders will sell you the front only, My local would of a few years back for my El but i decided against it.

I just sent some second hand Koni Yellow's to be rebuilt to Top Performance In Vic, Very helpful and explained what they should do all over the phone. I'm still waiting for them to come back (chrissy period) but price was good, $370 got me both front shocks completly rebuilt one shock got a complete housing replaced (second hand) and postage back to me.

Pedders do a conventional coil over for the front, the back uses a typical adjustable shock and a special adjustable spring base plate to alter ride hight.

Seems to be a good thing if you wish to change the hight at all.

Recieved shocks back today, they only cost $310 inc postage and to my surprise they had a fresh coat of paint and new stickers :D

If you only want the front, dont bother. Get some koni's or simmilar and enjoy a quality product that will last you years.

There is no point having front only hight adjustment, it would be useless as tits on a bull.

Koni's still have a form of damper (rebound to be exact) to satisfy the need of most to "tune" the ride.
