Koni's FSD installed

Koni's installed....Smooth very smooth compared to the Bil's that were on it...
No more jarring of the M.H. while traveling down the I-10 with every bump and ruff road here in the Coachela valley (Palm Springs).
Aint cheap ($370.00) but they work nice, On the front is KYB gas and they work perfectly also...

Dave, Just finding the parts can take longer then the install
Since there was two of us messing with the rig I decided to tear into the ignition system and this is what I found.....
Corrision found it's way into the internal parts especially the weights and the advance unit needed a good shot of "Berryman B-12 spray" to rid the stickyness of the operation, Took the weights into the shop and cranked up the buffing wheel....
The weights now look like chrome and just glide like new, Driving down the I-10 east and west bound and loving the way the coach responded to the new shocks my attention turned to the motor, With the ignition and the new stage 2 Sean Murphy quad the vacuum gauge jumped up by 2 inches and would hang around 15/16 inches on the west bound drive and on the east bound run (slightly down hill and with the slight wind at my back) the vacuum increased to 17-19 inches....
Either way indicates a huge increase in fuel mileage and I'll find out next month with another trip to Arizona.

Jim

Outlaw, Yes I left all 4 corners (airbags) on and the bonus item is the pressure has been dropped by 20 pounds which has made it smoother.
