In Reply to: 980 for 4 shocks and springs? posted by Dmitry on August 28, 2001 at 19:52:16:

My requirements were:

1) a 'tuned and matched' spring and shock set
2) minimal drop

For item number 1, you really only have a few choices - the sachs sporting kit, dinan and ???.

For item number two, Dinan is really the only game in town.

BTW, The bilstein's dinan sells are re-valved to match their springs.

Anyways, yes...they were not the cheapest but I can say I've been very happy with the setup and have not had any buyers remorse.

The car is used with the Dinan setup in our local chapters lapping days. The instructors all comment on how nicely balenced the car is. Runs through turn one at 120 very balanced and rock solid.

Idda know...you decide. I agonized for a long time before I decided on the Dinan setup.

Cheers!

Jeff
