Which do you prefer or do you combine to get the best feel?
This.HD and Sport are the same valving. The Sport has a shorter shaft and an internal bump stop for lowered applications. I have HDs on the front of both my wagons. Good stuff.
I would not. If you have the compressor I would go ahead and lop off some coild if you reaaaalllly want to do the shocks now. You could always look in the junkyards for some shock to hold you over.Thanks for the replies. Now, I can install sports on stock springs for the time being, until I pick up some lowering springs, correct? My shocks front and rear are absolute sh!t right now.
check out this super old post from 2001 where a user called Bilstein to confirm this fact:Are you sure about this? I was very much under the impression that the sports were 3 valves and HD were 2. Comfort was one.
If you are lowering, use the Sports (or B8s). But fit the shorter springs at the same time.Which do you prefer or do you combine to get the best feel?
Ah, yup. I always love being proved wrong, it means next time I know I am right . I googled around and this seems to be the case. I have HD on my W123 and sports on my W124. The stroke on the sports is MUCH shorter.check out this super old post from 2001 where a user called Bilstein to confirm this fact:
"Same-Same"...side by side in the below pic.Are you sure about this? I was very much under the impression that the sports were 3 valves and HD were 2. Comfort was one.
