I don't know when Koni started manufacturing the 7120 10XX XX series electronic controlled shocks, but I do know they quit in 2004 manufacturing these units. I can tell you these were used on Lamborghini and Maserati plus some other cars. What I need and am looking for is the small electric 12V stepper motor that is used inside the shocks main shaft. The whole devise for it's time is/ was very good I think for a production electrically controlled adjusting suspension devise. Problem I'm having is the electric motor goes bad after time and wear and finding a replacement is up until now impossible to find. I've looked all over the internet for electric core assemblies or parts, manufactures of said parts even E mailing many companies in China. I track down two different companies in Holland who either assembled or manufactured these core assemblies but both have gone out of business. Needless to say Koni will not give me any information about these shocks or tell me who made these motors for them. One company in China said they would re manufacture these for me if I ordered about 100 life time supplies. I have looked into RC small motors and even robot electric motors but so far no luck in finding something for a replacement motor. These are installed inside the shocks main shaft with a electric cord coming out the top. This motor changes the shocks valving by an ECU in the car somewhere and senses several pieces of data to control the shock.
Can anyone out there help me with this project?
