I just had a set of Boge Turbo Gas installed in Angela's 90Q20V.
The fronts needed struts, too. Total cost was about $500 + 2 hours

I've used the TG before, and like them a lot. Almost as good as
Bilstein (with a better ride) for a lot less $$$.

I have the Koni reds in my 100Q, and am underwhelmed. Gonna replace
them with Boges when the war chest is replenished.
