KONI's Adjustable Special D Shock Absorber offers the performance and handling of a nitrogen charged shock with the smooth ride of
an oil filled shock absorber. The KONI Shock fits the Link Pin Front Suspension of 1954 through 1965 Beetles, 1956 through 1965
Karmann Ghias and 1955 through 1967 Type 2 Bus Models as well as the Ball Joint front of 1962 through 1973 Type 3s. The KONI Special
D Shock Absorber is specifically valved for the VW front end and comes in KONI's Classic Red. The adjustable shock absorbers come
set to their softest setting typically but can be stiffened nearly 100% by collapsing and rotating the shock absorber.
The eyelets at the upper and lower ends of the shock have a 12mm (just under 1/2") inner diameter sleeve. The mount on the trailing
arm should measure about 11.9mm (just over 7/16").If the hole is "too small" to fit on the lower mount, then the old shock sleeve
has rusted in place and must be removed. Sometimes a pair of vice grips is all it takes, sometimes heat, a chisel or even a cut off
wheel have been needed.
