RE:Suspension.... BOOiinnnggg...

In a note dated 11/13/96 KURT HUFFMAN asked with regards to 4kq struts:

>1 are BOGE the best for stiff ride and control. ?
Not sure, I was told these were the O.E. struts used in my 87 "commerative
build" 4kcsq with "sports suspension". I bought that car new back then and,
after putting RE-71's on, it handled amazingly good...sold me on q's and I
sold my last 911 soon after. Eric prolly knows best on this one...I defer to
his wisdom.
>2 Are KYB worth saving 15$ per strut?
I'm reluctant to admit to this list that I "cheaped out" this way on my
current q...I did all at once; control arm bushings, strut bearings, wheel
bearings, and brakes, along with KYB's (I had used them in the past on a 911
after being told they are "poor man's bilsteins" which I'm not so sure
of...). This 4ksq (with KYB's) is the third of this type of q I have owned. I
did not do springs and was just trying to regain stock handling traights (on
a low post-divorce budget and all). I am pleased to say that the KYB's work
great. This car at 154k handles exactly like my 87 did when new...no ill
traights and not too harsh a ride which I was warned might be the case with
KYB's...They work really good for me. HTH...
