Hi Warren, I have the same problem with my 1995 (461) 290GD-T. I've just replaced the standard oil shocks with the Bilstein gas shocks (B4). It feels a little bit better but on the winding road, I am still not satisfy with the handling. I am thinking of replacing the whole set of coil springs with the springs from G500. But I still doubt that they will fit with my G without any modification. Please advise.
