I might be rebuilding my suspension this winter and I have a question regarding this.

There seems to be two different types of KONI shocks. Yellow and Red. From what Iīve heard, the yellow ones are stiffer than the red ones. Is this true, and if so, which ones handle better on a normal road.

Thanks in advance!

To my knowledge, only the Koni Reds are available for the Fiero, so it doesn't matter which is better.

If my info is inaccurate, someone please provide a vendor for both Konis! That would rock!

I've never seen (or heard of) Koni Yellows installed on a Fiero... I have a set of Red ones installed on my GT - at full soft, the front is great for street driving, but the rear is too soft and needs to be tightened a bit (but with a couple of turns in the shock, it's great too).

Looking for Fiero posters?

I have a set of red Koni's in the front. Actually they're from my old crashed GT, but they still work great.
Although I heard some people have (adjustable) yellow Koni's in the back around here?!

While we are on the subject, I was thinking about going Eibach/Koni in front and stock spring/Koni in back. Reason, I want to give the car a forward lean. Any opinions on how this would handle?

There's no difference between "red" and "yellow" in general.

The difference is when they offer a "yellow" version for a car. That means it has firmer valving and usually is externally adjustable.

The fiero already has stiff valving and is externally adjustable in the rear. The front, even if externally adjustable, you'd need to take out to adjust so why have the additional cost?

Reds are fine. You'll be happy.
