I went w/Koni FSDs about a year ago. Yes they cost more, ride and handling w/Helwig sway bar is phenomenal. Big improvement and when towing the Konis really standout. Konis also carry lifetime replacement warranty. Yes the do cost more, but believe well worth it.

front & rear?

I' about ready to do the same. Did you put them (Koni FSD's) front & rear only. I'm thinking rear only?

The valuing on a Koni shock is "harder" then most if not all Bilstenins so if you are looking for a smother ride Konis are not the way to go.

All shocks are not created equal, Konis are built for handling so they are going to be a stiffer shock, Bilsteins are built for all around and they have a patent on their valving so it gives you a smother ride. But some applications only have one or the other or neither, so you will need to look at that first.

That is just not true, there is a lot more to shock valving that just harder or softer. I have used both and the Koni is much smoother for small irregularities such as expansion strips, even if they are fimer for large movement. You would need to see the damping curve for each to know for sure.
