About Koni

KONI makes a broad range of product lines to deliver upgraded performance in handling and ride quality to cars and trucks driven on paved roads. Below is a list of the many world-class KONI products and features, including Koni sport shocks and suspension kits, so you can make the right choice for your vehicle.

About Koni

KONI has a long and colorful history starting in 1857 in the Netherlands and was not a shock absorber manufacturer at its onset but made leather equipment for horses and then prior to World War II it began designing and manufacturing a friction type shock absorber and finally after the war it initiated work on the telescopic shock absorber. Later, KONI began to view racing as an avenue that would advance the company’s presence in the automotive industry and consequently participated in an international rally and thus was the start of the KONI presence in the sport of racing until finally winning the World Championship with Tyrell Ford at the wheel winning the driver’s and construction championships and the rest is history. KONI has dedicated itself to the task of improving damping for racing purposes but it has not stopped there and has gone on to improve damping in commercial vehicles as well as things like bridges--no job is too big for KONI and its experts and now KONI has a presence in a potpourri of conveyances and industrial applications being used under the most extreme conditions and are touted to be first when it comes to the designing and manufacturing of shock absorbers and suspension systems.

As a testament to its success in 1972 it became part of the globally diversified industrial company ITT who has a customer base in about one hundred twenty-five countries around the world and is one of the leading manufacturers of energy, transportation and industrial solutions. When you purchase a KONI product you can be certain that a great deal of expertise has gone into the making of that product whether it be in design, manufacturing or testing because a company cannot exist in such a competitive marketplace without providing a quality product that satisfies their customer and they certainly can’t become one of the leaders in the industry. Whether you choose the Gold, Yellow, Orange or Red KONI shocks for sale on the LMPERFORMANCE web site ,know that the difference is not in the color but in the unique driving experience each is designed to provide because KONI makes every color of SANS PARIEL quality, they just want to give you the ability to choose the one that best suits your driving situation.

For over 150 years, KONI has been the premier manufacturer of performance and adjustable Koni sport shocks in the world. KONI shocks introduced the industry's very first adjustable shock absorber, electronic drag racing shocks and today's patented FSD (Frequency Selective Damping) street shocks. KONI suspension kits are made from the highest quality raw materials and machined to the highest tolerances. This quality is represented not only by KONI's long heritage in motorsports but has also afforded KONI shocks the ability to offer a limited lifetime warranty on many of its shocks.

Acura

These are some of the items you can find at LMPerformance for your Acura

If you are adding a body kit to your Acura CL Integra, NSX, RSX, TL OR TSX for aesthetic reasons only then you have a varied range of materials to choose from but if you are doing it to improve performance then aerodynamics is one of the most important deciding factors. Late Model Performance offers you body kits specific to your Acura CL, Integra, NSX, RSX, LT or TSX. The DURAFLEX brand by the transcendent manufacturer Extreme Dimensions took the fiberglass market by storm with the DURAFLEX aerodynamics by a marriage of fiberglass, plastic, and flex resins to obtain sui generis features allowing DURAFLEX aero parts a much higher durability rate than the average fiberglass product and the primer finish helps you get that paint job done faster and with outstanding results. We also can supply you with the DURAFLEX Bumper (Front), Bumper (Rear) and Side Skirts if you do not need a full body kit at this time.

Upgrading your shocks imparts a miscellany of advantages, ranging from better vehicle stability, to improved control, and in some cases, a smoother ride and a working set of shocks propitiously lessens the wear on your suspension, wheels and tires. The shocks on your Acura are formulated for improved drivability, control, and vehicle stability, but these conditions are terrain-dependent. KONI, the preeminent manufacturer of performance shocks in the world knows this and as a result developed a potpourri of shocks to meet your needs whether it be everyday driving or in situations requiring greater impact dampening - such as racing or off road driving. There are three choices for your Acura: the Street Orange Shock is totally new and is individually tailored and engineered to give your car that KONI sports feel with improved handling and less roll; the Sport Yellow Shock serves Sporting Drivers focusing on road holding and handling, h a reasonable level of driving comfort and usable with spring kits to lower a vehicle up to 35mm; and the FSD Gold shock absorbers; a smart suspension system adjusting automatically to road conditions as well as driving style. Learn which KONI shock is ideal for your model Acura and driving style by using the drop down lists on our web site.

A slipping, sticking or stiff clutch in your Acura or a slipping in your drag vehicle may mean it is time for a change to a Performance Clutch by the inimitable SPEC. Their street high performance and racing clutches and flywheels are manufactured in multitudinous Clutch Kits, from street kit Stage 1,2,2+, 3, and 3+ to Race Kits Stage 4 and 5 and the SPEC Super Twin with TQ ratings of over 1500 FT TQ! The Stage 1 is primo for Street, Drag, Drift, Road Race, Rally, Pulling, Autocross; the Stage 2, 2+, 3, 3+, 4 and 5 can be used for Street, Drag, Pulling, and Autocross; the Super Twin is beneficial in all types of driving; and the Mini Twin is serviceable in limited street, drag, drift, road racing, time attack, pulling and rally driving. Since performance clutches typically involve heavier springs and different disc materials they result in a clutch with more clamping force, meaning more torque can be transmitted without the clutch slipping, and the clutch will be much more likely to grab under aggressive shifting or clutch dumping - perfect for racing and off-road. Because SPEC billet flywheels are manufactured to .001 machine tolerance that, guaranteeing a flat seating surface for the clutch and smooth rotational qualities for perfect balance and extended engine life and they are constructed from only the highest quality steel and aluminum. Quicker revs, more horsepower and increased engine reliability are a result of installing stock appearing aluminum pressure plates. With the SPEC Super Clamp pressure plate, you can expect a 50-60% increase in clamp load above and beyond the increase offered by the standard high clamp pressure plate

Aftermarket performance exhausts create a quicker, more efficient path for exhaust gases to escape meaning your engine "breathes" better, so spent fuel and air exit the combustion chambers faster thus more fuel and air can be burned to create more power. The INVIDIA Exhaust for your Acura is a good balance of price and performance with a winning line-up of Exhaust Systems to choose from. Each INVIDIA Stainless Exhaust is constructed with high quality SUS304 Stainless Steel, CNC-machined flanges, and manufactured with a polished finish.
