these are the cheapest set of koni's i found online, with koni springs aswell, id ring and check details first if u were going to order as its a generic advert.

the konis are 130 each nowadays so considering it comes with springs its not a bad price, but the olins will only be about £660 with the price gedis put up
if i was in the market for a new set of dampers i would defo pay the xtra for them
but when you factor in springs (i would recomend whiteline flatout, the rears are the stiffest iv found) thats nearly a grand, if you paying that then you might aswell go for a set of gaz fully adjust coilovers allround

what are you using the swift for?
if its just a road/track toy then you will be using the same springs so if you do end up with konis once you found the damping that you like its there for good, its only the fronts that are annoying, the rears can be done in 15mins

send him a pm on here, teamswift or the 4u site
im sure he`l be able to point you in the right direction

i would not use gaz !!! they are not good in my opinon , if you can get ohlins for that price i would have them over any other shocks .........i have a custom set of BC fully ajustible on myin they do work very well but cost me about £1000 well worth the money thoge http://www.bc-racing.co.uk/ if i know i could have ohlins i would of all day ohlins is the best on the market along with proflex

I have a set, fitted a year ago or more... and mate, I will recommend you to change all your silentblocks (I mean rubbers of suspension arms) maybe upgrade with powerflex/poly...

I'm bored cos ohlins are so stiff that hurts in back when you drive in motorway Twisted Evil anb literally f*ck all the old rubber in suspension area...
