those are for
78-82 Ford Fairmont, incl. wagon
79-82 Ford Mustang
79-82 Mercury Capri
79-82 Mercury Zephyr

These are not for the SVO, hence the low price. SVO strut is PN 8741-1054

Konis for the SVO are adjustable, front and rear, with the exception of the quadshock (angled ones). You will have slapper bars (traction bars) if your car is an early production '84. Quad shocks came out on the late '84 models.


The fronts are adjusted clockwise to increase rebound, and counter-clockwise to increase rebound. Adjustment is make on he top of the valve rod (in the engine compartment). If it is an original style, the adjuster looks like a "D" shape The newer ones are a blade type....sort of like a thick screwdriver end.

To adjust the rears, unbolt them from the bottom, compress them all the way, and turn the lower part of the shock. Clockwise to lighten rebound, counter-clockwise to increase rebound.

I was having so much trouble finding some origional KONI adjustables for my SVO I called my pals over at Maximum Motorsports and got some Bilsteins instead, they aren't adjustable, but they are lifetime warrantied and they ride and handle better than the KONI's. The Bilsteins were about the same price as the KONI's but were not on never-ending back-order.

Additionally, you can send the old Konis back to the OEM and they will rebuild them for you.

Konis have a lifetime warrantee fior the original purchaser as well.
