I'm late to this rodeo, but I ran Koni Reds for 20 years and I liked them a lot. Softest setting up front, somewhere around mid-range out back. I got them because I occasionally tracked the car back then (nothing serious) and wanted something stiff and sure-footed. They were all of that plus a bag of chips and not really harsh riding.
Now that I'm becoming an auld phart, I've given up tracking the car, but I wanted something even softer so I went with a set of KYB's and I like them. Not as sure-footed as the Konis were, but fine for what I need now. I also could bump up the tire pressure a couple of pounds with the KYBs and still get a soft ride.
