Red Konis on XK150 - what setting?

I’d like to know what anyone has experienced with red Konis on a 150. Do you have them soft? One turn toward firm?

The E-Type folks seem to like them as soft as they will go. What setting for street driving an XK150S OTS?

I’ve used Konis on all sorts of cars over the last four decades, and have them on my Mustang, Mini and XK140 currently. Many years ago Koni tech told me that their adjustability is intended to account for wear, so a new set should be set to full soft until further adjustment is necessary. This has worked well for me.


Thanks for the tip! I saw the E-Type owners all say soft setting, too, so that’s what I’m doing.
