Adjusting the rear Konis

Is there a way to get easy access to the adjustment for the Koni Sports on the rear without doing Stock Class illegal interior modifications/removal? How have others handled this?

You pop off the covers, adjust the shocks and snap the covers back into place. Only way I know.

ARGH! I oversimplified my question when I revised my first rambling version.. I guess the sticky whicket for me is, don't the AAS and/or the speaker get in the way?

Nope. At least not on the FD's. Or unless you've got some fancy stereo stuff that's been custom-built into the rear divider.

AND if you've got Konis the AAS is out in the woods somewhere.
At least that's where mine went when I took that system off.
You DO have to take the speakers out to access the top of the struts and that's the only bummer. I have a friend who's been autocrossing his 86 sport for years. He has one of those little power screwdrivers in his kit that he uses to get all the screws out and in. It's no big deal though as long as you're not fiddling with them every day.
