Yes, we make it very easy to buy and install Koni
"inserts" because you don't have to do any fabrication work at all,
if you don't want to! We will do it all for you. In
order for us to do the fabrication, we have to have struts in hand;
so we offer a strut "core" service. This way, you can receive
your Koni shocks, already inserted into strut housings, ready for
easy installation on your car!
2 options are available:
1) NEW STRUTS - We can start with brand new
struts, and you will receive all brand new parts, including the
strut housings used. No strut refund available on new strut
housings. And that is that... no need to read on except for
pricing at the very bottom.
OR YOU CAN CHOOSE
2) PRE-OWNED STRUTS - We build your Koni
struts with pre-owned struts we have here, ship them to you, you
install them, and then ship the stock struts you have on our car
back to us for a full refund!!! So, it costs you only the
shipping of your struts back to us.
HOWEVER WHEN CHOSING PRE-OWNED STRUTS.....
In order to ensure all future customer receive
pre-owned struts in good condition (because you expect
yours to be in good condition), there are some rules about what
pre-owned struts we will accept for refund. And these rules
1) No significant rust - any strut more
than 5 years old probably has too much rust on it for us to
accept... unless you are in a warm, dry part of the world. If
you see only very slight rust (like total rust per strut is less
than 1 finger print), then that is ok. If you are not sure,
please send us pics.
2) No bent, broken, or significant scaring
accepted (this is self explanatory) - like if they have been in
an accident or otherwise hit with BFH's.
3) If camber bolts have been used, you MUST TELL
US IN ADVANCE. Sometimes we have struts here with the normal
scarring of aftermarket camber bolts, and that is ok as long as the
scarring is normal....we are happy to provide core service with
similar "camber bolt scarred" strut cores in stock. HOWEVER,
sometimes camber bolts are installed incorrectly, and they can
damage the struts. If you have damaged your strut from camber
bolts (like in the pics below), we will NOT accept them.
Examples of cores not
accepted for refund:
line.... if we cannot clean and send your struts to someone else, we
will not accept them as cores to be refunded!
REFUSED STRUTS WILL BE RETURNED TO CUSTOMER AT CUSTOMER'S EXPENSE OR
CONTACT US IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS!
WE WANT TO WORK WITH YOU IF WE CAN.
