I'm a little confused here....What exactly are you trying to do since they are the same thing? Best bet is to paint the KYB's yellow. Then you have KYB Yellow's lol.

I thinking you meant springs?

Yellows

According to their website, they don't make anything for a Maxima. That would be a no for that question.

Why would anyone want to?

I can understand if anyone is trying to make ksports coilovers ride like Teins without paying the ticket for Teins, but ate Konis really that much better than KYB? KYB is the closest ride to stock. Even dealers sell KYB as replacement to OEM.

Koni's are adjustables,

I had Konis on my 93 RX7 , total adjustable,

Active had the Koni's in the front and AGX rears to make them adjustables.

this is how they use to replace them in the old VW golf , This is where active tuning got this idea from.

Koni's are decent , I would rather go with Bilstein

But I cant complain on my adjustable.

good luck finding the Koni's inserts
