Is this for AutoX?
The older type of Koni's adjust by turning the damper rod in the strut body. They look like a regular OEM damper. But the newer type has a little adjuster at the end of the rod which is easily recognisable. If you can get some of the older type that are like new they will be a big help. But I believe they have "Koni" stamped into the strut body so even if you paint them black, with a thorough inspection it'd be obvious.
You can only adjust rebound on them. If you're doing AutoX I'd recommend setting the rear significantly firmer than the front.
Also a firmer rear anti-roll bar will help a lot. If you pain it black and use black bushings it would probly pass as standard (depending on the design).
With dampers and the rear bar it will push a lot less but the most important thing is practicing to set the car up for each corner so you aren't overloading the front tyres on turn in.
Just my $.02! *smiley face*

|Schroeder02||May want to try the h&t race springs with a 24 or 25mm bar to start with the race springs are 325 front and 375 rear so with a bigger bar you be able to losen the back up.|

|super-ken||ya i have to stick with stock looking springs so ill investigate the h and r springs.... did you change the sway bars at all or stick with whats in it|

If you can fabricate and can use any spring I would make something like the old ground control coil over set up http://images.search.yahoo.com/image...fr=yfp-t-900-sfor the front and rear. It will allow you to use an Eiback slandered English race springs. Youíll also need a better shock such as konie yellow.
If you have to stay with a stock looking spring probably the H&R race springs I think they have the stiffiest rear spring around.
I would try going with a springs thatís about 40%stiffer than you have in the front. The way I have my road racing car set up is my rear spring it 25% stiffer then my front my fronts are 450ibs/in and the rears are 575lbs/in. my car is not quite neutral so you may want a bit more spring In the back. Also canber bolts in the rear may help.
