So Konis and Bilstein/Boge are apples and oranges basically.  Hydraulic
vs. Gas, and if you go gas, might as well get Boges.  It seems like
everyone has already ruled out Konis for whatever reason (that I disagree
with).  But if you want to pay $$$ (which you will with Koni or bilstein),
might as well get the Konis.
