Default How to (Make) Active Tuning Custom Koni Adjustable Struts

Courtesy of

We’ve recently stated that we will no longer be offering the custom Koni adjustable strut solution for the Altima/Maxima. We wanted to at least provide a fairly basic guide for anybody that wanted to actually take on the project themselves, or even sell them modified. This guide is for the adjustable struts, expect the shocks to be online soon.

Parts Needed:
  • 4th gen. Maxima (1995-1999) Koni Sport (yellow) strut inserts.
  • PL Urethane adhesive
  • Loctite 271
  • 12mm serrated lock washers (2)
  • 12 x 1.25mm nylon insert locknut
  1. Install the Koni inserts into your strut bodies per the Koni instructions provided. Use the Loctite on the lower bolt, and a 1/4 bead of urethane adhesive around the top of the shock at the protrusions on the Koni insert bodies.
  2. Modify the upper strut mount (insulator) by removing the flat spot from the bore with a die grinder or drill bit.
  3. Reduce the height of the mount by 8mm with a saw/grinder/mill by removing the material from the bottom. When completed the bottom of the center bore will be approximately level with the three raised areas of the rubber portion.
  4. Assemble and install the struts using the serrated washer and Koni-provided nuts on the upper mount center bolt.
  5. Tighten to 40 ft. lbs.
