Evening gents,

Has anyone checked this out yet? https://www.porsche.com/international/accessoriesandservice/classic/genuineparts/producthighlights/shockabsorber993/

Bilstein appear to have been Porsche’s manufacturer of choice. I dare say these have got OPC tax added though - anyone know if they’re similar to any of Bilstein’s other offerings? Anyone tried it?

I was looking for Konis with M033 springs but wouldn’t mind more info re this if anyone has gone that way?

Cheers,

Pierre

I went the B8 route. Firm, planted and very confidence inspiring on the fast North Yorkshire roads I drive frequently but not ideal on potholed town roads... your fillings may fall out. Wink

1997 Porsche 993 Targa

I have the Classic suspension on my car. More than happy with it. I am not a driving God, so can't compare and contrast with other options.
