RE: Shock Recommendations

It is whatever you have the money for................
Currently I am using Koni yellows, Bogue Gas (yellow), and Bogue (black) oil
in my two cars and I will be "mighty pressed" to tell you which is best!
They are all performing very well.............

So what recommendations WILL people make regarding aftermarket shocks?  I
hear a couple votes for Koni Reds, one blast on Koni Yellows, another blast
on Blisteins...

I'm going to be in the market for shocks/struts in my Audi 90 in the near
future, and would like a little less roll and dive (my 2 wheel drive 90 has
quite a bit of both).  I don't want a jarring, bumpy ride though - you know,
all the advantages none of the disadvantages!:)  Any recommendations and
info on how they compare to stock would be helpful.

Can't speak for the yellow ones, but the red ones in my 100Q
are doing just fine after about 80K HARD driving miles.
