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. We also have Bilstein Sport Shocks here for another reputable company providing quality performance parts.

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.

Newest Koni Car Parts for Your Merkur

Merkur

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

The MERKUR, though short-lived (from 1985 to 1989), has its own club, The MERKUR Club of America, for those who have an affinity for the car and are anxious to improve it for racing or street use and LMPERFORMANCE wants to help you get the parts you need for a better performing MERKUR whether it be a Scorpio or XR4Ti to upgrade your clutch and shocks.

When the power levels or temperatures experienced by your MERKUR Scorpio and your MERKUR XR4Ti clutch system exceed the levels at which the stock clutch disc can operate you need a performance clutch and this can occur when your clutch is getting excessive use and too much heat that over time will begin to fail to grab resulting in it only getting warmer. As the disc temperature rises, it works less and less, until finally failing. SPEC, the eminent manufacturer of street high performance and racing clutches and flywheels designs kits in Stage 1,2,2+, 3, and 3+ to Race Kits Stage 4 and 5 for different driving conditions whether it be every day driving or racing and there is one designed specifically for your MERKUR car. The materials in the SPEC clutch will outperform the material in your factory clutch because they use high quality materials like molded carbon KEVLAR based high performance lining or KEVLAR discs with steel backing for strength and durability. The clutch pressure plate will have a greater clamping force so that it generates more torque capacity than your stock pressure plates. The SPEC flywheel and flywheel friction plate for your MERKUR XR4Ti are designed for specific driving environments and your car's reaction to changing in rotational mass so they can be used for a variety of driving situations. The SPEC flywheel is manufactured from only the highest quality steel and aluminum and to a remarkable .001 machine tolerance for a flat seating surface, balance and optimal engine life and the Aluminum Flywheels are usually half the weight of stock steel flywheels enabling faster revving, less drag on the engine, and quicker response.

A working set of shocks successfully lessens the wear of your suspension, wheels, and tires and in situations -- such as racing or off road driving -- your MERKUR XR4Ti requires shocks that are built for significantly greater impact dampening. Upgrading your shocks can provide a variety of benefits, ranging from better vehicle stability, to improved control, and in some cases, a smoother ride. The KONI MERKUR XR4Ti Sport Yellow Shock is one of their specialties and this product focuses on exceptional road holding and handling besides giving a reasonable level of driving comfort and they can also be used with spring kits to lower a vehicle up to 35mm. The Koni Sport Yellow Shock has external rebound adjustment on most cars to offer you the ability to adjust the shocks to suit your driving pleasures and they can be rebuilt for custom vehicle setups. They come with a lifetime warranty because Koni knows they have manufactured a product you can trust.
