Yes Koni shocks would be OK on stock springs. If you think M-sport springs are pretty firm, stay away from Swift. I know people on forums say Swift springs are so great but I've spent time in a car with Swift springs and I thought they were WAY too firm for daily driving.
Thanks for the heads up. I was afraid of that.
Would shocks alone address the problem Im trying to solve though (reduce plowing and outside tire wear)?
