I knew someone had made this comparison. Thanks Ed.
It seems unlikely the Audi Gods would have used a generic part where it affects
handling so much. The weight and tires on the Fox vs the V8 are very different.
As I said, my old damper was completly dead (as in kazu like), and after
replacing it the difference in handling was dramatic. Before, I was ready to
replace all kinds of front end parts to solve the tracking problem, but now it
drives "good enough". At 150K+ miles on the OEM parts, I am probably due for
lots of parts though.
Now at least I can put it off untill I get through dumping money on my Vespa.
What was I thinking there anyway :-)
