KONI 2816 Shock Absorber

KONI are not your average shock absorbers. They feature a number of standards that make them unique:

They can be set to your personal preference (adjustable to your own level of road comfort).

A set of KONI shock absorbers will usually outlive the life of your car.

A KONI is not a copy of the original. It is designed for specific car or specific conditions.

Each KONI is individually tested until the optimum in handling & comfort is reached.

The handling of your car is a major issue four your own safety.

KONI test drivers are dedicated car enthusiasts themselves.


Parts and a full back-up Service, including custom-building, is readily available in NZ.

To suit European, American, Australian or Japanese vehicles, plus Classics.

Racing Strut and Cartridge

Developed specifically for production-based race cars with strut suspensions, the 2816 and 2817 Series share their internal components with the very successful 2812 racing damper.

The 2816 is the universal tool for the professional O.E.M. customer who wishes to (re)design a McPherson suspension from scratch. As a bare insert, it offers maximum freedom to the suspension designer. Available with either a pin or eye upper attachment and stroke ranging from 119 (4.685”) to 199 (7.835”) mm.

The 2817 is the cost-effective strut solution for the professional or club racer. It is a semi-finished aluminium McPherson strut without brackets, containing a 2816 type insert. It also offers stroke ranges from 119 to 199 mm. Steel brackets can be welded onto the housing by the customer.

The 2816 and 2817 are modular systems, meaning all 2816 and 2817 shock cartridges share the same basic dimensions and features. The stroke lengths and valving characteristics will be custom-built to suit the specific application.

Drivers like the 28 Series because they feel a real difference between adjustment steps. Mechanics and race engineers appreciate the user friendliness and apparent ”simplicity” of the dampers that make them so easy to work with.
