For what it's worth, this is a patently horrible idea. The Koni adjusters are designed to fail before the damper does if overtightened. Having a solid knob could lead to premature failure of the damper because you're making the J hook the weak part of the equation rather than the adjuster. Don't prove PT Barnum right on this one.

Then again...

it is fairly obvious when you have reached full tight. It should not be that difficult to adjust without the kind of shock damaging force you are talking about.

I am including a discloser with all knobs I send out. I am not responsible for damage to any and all shocks because of overtightening and stress to the internals of the shock. I understand that the plastic knobs are designed to fail b4 the shock does. These are more designed for the "hard to reach" rear adjuster flanges on the rear shocks. AND they look good enough for the people who are in car shows to put on your shocks under the hood to show them off. I agree 100% - JOE

Any chance of another batch? I need to check this forum a bit more often.

If they aren't available now, can you put my name in a safe place to contact me 1s t if nother batch happens to pop-up somewhere?

Or hell, I'll even put myself in a stand-by position so when the usual CEG memebr fails to come through with the $$, I am there.

I will keep your info for the unexpected "drop out" in the group buy. As of now, this is the only batch. BUT, I will work on getting more. - JOE

Hey Joe... you can change me to just 1. That'll free up 1 knob for someone else.
