    Koni Struts and Stock Springs

    I just bought a really clean well taken care of 2015 500 Abarth locally. I love the car, but unfortunately it came with this Air Lift Performance 3P suspension that I can't stand. I owned a 2013 before and ran OEM springs, OEM front struts and KYB's in the rear. I really enjoyed the way the car handled and how comfortable it was as a daily. The current set up is nice in a sense, but not for me. I just got back from the dealer and ordered OEM springs and Koni shocks for all four corners from tire rack. From what I have read when set to their softest setting they ride like OEM shocks/struts. The dealer wanted $600 for the front struts, so I opted for all four Koni's @ $580. If anyone is riding on Koni's with stock springs? I would love to hear how they compare to stock comfort wise.

    I have Koni's and H&R and the ride is comfortable. Doesn't feel much different than when it was stock except it's a little lower.

    I replaced my fronts with Konis awhile ago. The installer set it for position "3." When I first drove it, I thought it was too firm. After some miles, they're fine at that position.

    The main advantage over the stock ones is the damping and body control at higher speeds. Even north of 80 miles an hour, the front is stable and well controlled.

    I never wanted to mess with the springs. Some people lower them for a cosmetic look, but the stock spring rates are about as firm as I would want to go.

    Lowering a FIAT 500 isn't just a cosmetic mod... you are lowering the center of gravity which transforms the handling.

    I agree lowering springs will always make the ride firmer which I do not want. The Abarth is my daily. I also have a 17 miata on coilovers if I feel like driving something low and firm. The point of my Abarth is to take a break from that. I'll post some pics of what I am about to pull off.

    I have no idea what a setup like this goes for used. I actually have the original invoice from last owner. It was installed on 06/29/20 at 25,467 miles the car now has 32k miles.

    Love the O.Z. Anniversary 45’s! I’ve never understood why they weren’t more popular on Fiats. But it adds to the rareness of having a set.

    I run stock springs on my 2014 Abarth, and KONI yellows at +1 full turn setting. Nice handling.

    But the biggest difference was the NEU-F front swaybar 25mm adjustable, middle setting. Absolutely transforms the car!!!

    The front sway bar is so underrated.

    I'll bet it does. Changing to a stiffer front anti-sway bar is a good way to change a car from mild understeer to significant understeer.
