Will these shocks fit my car?
They are suitable for all of the Range RoverP38's 1995 to 2002, both petrol and diesel.
Once driven on Koni, you could never live without them again.
If you are fed up with your Range Rover tilting heavy on slight and cornering at all speeds as well as its lack of stability under breaking and normal driving then I can certainly recommend Koni Shock absorbers for you.
I have personally used them for 20+ Years on all RPi Bespoke conversions and with over 400 sets sent out on mail order to date we have never had an unsatisfied customer, indeed the ones on my 130mph Range Rover have now done 100K miles in 8 years including much off-roading, river crossings and other unrelenting work and are still as good as the day I fitted them.
You and your passengers will appreciate the uncompromising body-roll control and improved ride for sure, and you won't find it a harsher ride either.
One of the most disappointing aspects of all used Range Rovers, Land Rovers & Discoveries is the excessive body roll, even at low-speed cornering & normal manoeuvring, especially if the shock absorbers fitted as standard are in less than perfect condition.
The prime reason for the excessive body roll is probably no more than the manufacturer's compromises, and most replacement shocks fare only marginally better or at worst transform the ride into a 'Concrete Ride' or Rally Spec. Hardly what you need for road and mild off-road use.
Many companies offer what they believe to be a solution to this problem by advising the fitments of the expensive anti-roll bar conversions and/or heavy duty shock absorbers which range from quite soft to very, very harsh. Making the shock absorbers much stiffer will of course help with the problem, but the trade-off is to make the ride of the vehicle very stodgy and harsh at lower speeds on minor roads. The anti-roll bar conversion can also help to improve the situation, but again can cause harshness of ride and it tends to be very expensive to buy and to fit.
The Koni Way.
Koni have, over the years, gained a substantial reputation for quality and excellence in the production of suspension units. Instead of supplying a shock absorber to fit a whole range of vehicles, Koni shocks are developed and valved for individual applications. To understand the main advantage of the Koni shocks when used on a Range Rover, it is necessary to understand what is happening when you are cornering. When cornering, the shock absorber on one side is being compressed and is trying to hold the weight forces of the vehicle. Heavily uprating the shock absorber will partially resist this, but when uprating is excessive it causes normal driving to be very harsh. The shock absorber on the other side, however, is being stretched, and standard shocks offer very little resistance to this.
Koni suspension units.
You would never believe it was possible to have handling as good as this, and what you gain on handling, you also gain in economy. Ever noticed how you need to slow so much to manoeuvre the roundabout, or for normal day-to-day cornering? With the stability offered by Konis fitted to your car, you will reduce deceleration and the need to re-accelerate, thus using less fuel, and without the feeling of tipping your passengers out of the other side!
