I haven't heard anything about the KYB's being different than
the Boge's. Totally different company's and the Boge's
definately tend to ride a little different.
THat said, I think both those shocks are to soft if you want
to run aftermarket spring. WIth Eibachs maybe but not H&R's
which tend to be stiffer off the bat. WIth 14" wheels maybe,
but with 15" or larger and stiffer springs, the Boge's tend to
have trouble controlling suspension movement. The Bilstein's
aren't much stiffer and do a much better Job.
BTW....Doesnt matter if you have HD's or Sports. THey are the
same strut. Same travel, etc. At least in back, not sure about
the front for a 4kq/90q. But in back its the same so just get
some Bilsteins. They last longer, aren't THAT much more
expensive, and work well.
