If you check with Koni, they will tell you that the red shocks, set in the soft position, are identical to the stock Alfa shocks in compression and rebound. They are however adjustable in rebound.
So, one can stiffen up the rear in rebound, (which will "lift" the inside rear tire), and get some oversteer from the rear end. Of course this "kills" the rear to help the front (understeer). Not a good idea.
And one can stiffen up the front in rebound, and get a feel like you went to stiffer springs, but then you would loose compliance on rough roads.
I would use the stock shocks. Alfa knew what they were doing.
By the way: The Koni yellows are stiffer in both compression and rebound than stock Alfa or red Konis.
