Racing Beat Fitting Notes:
KONI certainly did make their shock offerings for the 2008-2011 RX-8 a bit confusing! To clear any confusion we contacted Koni directly for clarification regarding the intended fitting of these shocks. First, there a series of errors in the 2010-11 Koni printed catalog, the part number listed for the 03-08 front shocks is incorrect, the 09-11 rear shocks are NOT externally adjustable as indicated, and the 09-11 rear shocks (8240-1280 Sport) are NOT intended for use on Bilstein equipped cars.
KONI confirms the 8240-1280 Sport as the correct shock for the 2008 Bilstein equipped RX-8. Per KONI, these shocks feature a perch setting that is 15mm higher and a 10mm longer shock body than the non-Blistein equipped RX-8 Koni shock (PN 8240-1227 Sport). At this time KONI does not list a separate part number for 09-11 RX-8s that came equipped with Bilstein shocks.
Constructed using a Twin Tube Low Pressure gas design, these shocks are ideally suited for use with Racing Beat suspension springs! Unlike the externally adjustable front units, these shocks feature KONI's "standard" adjustment design. This design requires the shock to be adjusted before installation, or once installed the shock can be removed from the car, adjusted, then re-installed.
KONI warrants all new shocks to the original retail purchaser against defects in material and workmanship when used under normal operating conditions for as long as the purchaser owns the vehicle. (For specific warranty information, visit
