    Value of used Koni yellows?

    What's a reasonable price on a set of used koni yellows? I'm new to vw and i'm looking to get a set but have no idea what a reasonable price would be. This is for an mk4 btw

    Thanks!

    Depends on how old, but I'm thinking anywhere from $200-$500 depending on the shape. BTW, they run about $800-1000 brand new depending where you get them from. At least that's how much I paid for mine brand new.

    I paid $499 U.S for the shocks. By the time I got them, it was about $700 CAD. This was back in 2006 when I didn't know where to get deals and whatnot.

    Koni yellows are probably the best all around shock for most people, and are definitely worth the money. They're valved for higher spring rates, and are rebound adjustable externally(don't have to remove the shocks to adjust them)

    A really good set of coilovers is $2500+, so ~$800 for good struts is still a good buy.

    Value of used Koni yellows

    rnHello Chaps,
    rn
    rnIve picked up a cheap set of Bilstein and Koni shocks second hand.
    rn
    rnWho would be the best to send these off to get tested/rebuilt, and what sort of costs am I looking at?
    rn
    rnSomeone in Perth would be ideal.
    rn
    rnThanks guysrn
