Koni Yellow Help. Blown, Worn, or Perfectly Fine? Bought used.

I bought a set of used Koni Yellows for my focus hatch. Something that i would normally never do. Buy used street suspension. However i couldn't pass the deal. i paid 650 for koni yellows, h&r race springs, LCR camber plates, eibach sways(fr/rr), 2 VF poly mounts, and a msd coil. It was on ebay. He claimed the setup had 20k on it and everything in perfect working order minus some paint flaws due to midwest salt. came from a performance shop. Of course the lcr's were over tightened and have bends.

The adjusters all seem to work perfectly turning left to right. Im a seasoned technician and normally i would say there is something wrong with them but my knowledge on Konis are absolutely zero. My only other experience with adjustables are DMS rally struts on my old impreza but they are way out of the koni league and incomparable.

Turning the adjuster fully left which i believe is the stiffest? i press the rears down its fairly easy without too much effort, not blown but almost feels weak. They retract equally at the same time but very very slow, all the way to the right they retract faster but still retain the same feeling pressing them down. This may be completely normal. But for instance if you take a normal strut or shock out of the box off a ford, toyota, honda, etc. its somewhat stiff feeling. IDK i might be paranoid. I haven't tried the fronts for the fact they are fully assembled with top hats.

Any opinions are appreciated. Sooner the better so i can contact the guy about the struts. nonetheless i still got a good deal however the deal goes south if the struts are in poor internal shape.
