    I have installed new Yellow Koni Sport SA's in three different E30's in the last few months. they ALL work the same way. pressurized to half their travel. I have also installed a set in a 2002. same characteristic. all of them were sourced from different vendors.

    the Red Koni Sport SA's I got from GC for the E36 M3 were pressurized to full extension, but at nowhere near force that the billy sports I took out were.

    the GC Koni DA's i have on my 2002/M2 also normalize at half extension.

    useless data point because the dampers totally suck, but the Koni STR-T's in my E46 also were pressurized to half extension.

    I have a lot of Koni's.
    That's weird. The one set I've had from GC are 'normal' in that they go to full extension sitting there. I've never seen a shock do that that didn't have something wrong with it. That's a lie, I've never had a shock do that. I've got the tools to work on and pressurize JRZs, which are twin tube- but other than the Ohlins TTX I don't like working on those type of shocks...

      Some Konis are made that way. I've never understood it.
