How does your Koni shocks compare to the shocks from your coilover kit? Do the Konis have any advantage over the coilover shocks?

The V-Maxx coilover shocks differ from Koni shocks in that the coilover shocks are specifically manufactured to work in conjunction with the springs that comprise the coilover kit for the 124. The Koni's on the other hand are adjustable in their rebound to work with most any lowering spring that you may want to run.

As far as advantages are concerned it really depends on what you want to do with your 124. The coilovers offer a very affordable way to lower the car AND have adjustability to raise and lower the car to dial in the height as needed. These kits are mean to sit the car nice and low. What that means is that they might not be ideal for someone that wants a mild drop.

That is where the Koni's come into play. If you want a mild drop and/or have a set of springs in mind that you want to run pairing them with the Koni's is a no brainer! The ability to adjust the rebound of the struts to match the springs allows you to dial in the ride comfort and performance in a way that you cannot do with the stock struts. The only feature lacking is the ability to adjust the ride-height of the vehicle (which only coilovers can do.)

So, when it all boils down to it if you know where you want the car to sit and want great shocks to pair with your lowering springs the Koni/Lowering Spring route is the way to go. If you want to drop the car low and have the adjustability to raise and lower at-will then the coilovers are the better option.

As always we are here to help. Most times it is best to call in and speak to our knowledgeable reps to discuss the finer points of your install and the direction you want to take your 124 so that we can bounce some ideas, pro's/cons off of each so that you can feel comfortable no matter the route you choose!
