I've only been able to find the Koni FSDs at Tirerack - is that where you bought yours from?

I got em directly from Koni USA. They had a set in stock which I bought, but they normally do not stick them and probably will need to special order them from the Netherlands. Note, they are about $ 1200 with shipping. I put on a new set of stock springs with the shocks, and you should check with Koni about use with lowering springs. IIRC, they work with some, but not springs with a big drop.

I also put on new Moog problem solver upper control arms, Movotech x-factor lower control arms, X-factor rear upper and lower control arms, Mevotech track bar and Moog inner and outer tie rods. All these are far better (i.e. thicker, better steel, better bushings, ball joints, all greasable) than OEM Mopar, and will last a lot longer. These all make a big improvement in ride, handling stability and steering response.
