Shocks for a 1986.5 928s was created by babromovage
Does anyone have any shock recommendations for me? I am looking for a touring ride close to factory stock. Also, any ideas of what brand would have been on the car originally?

My vin - WP0JB0929GS861856

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You,

Brian

I gather there are not many choices still available for the 928 - so best to phone Roger as Brad says to get the latest available

To some extent, depends on what is on the car.

Bilsteins or Sachs Boge. The latter being more common- you can get replacement Boges. They are near factory but longevity is not known to be great. Years ago they were made in Germany, but much of the manufacturing is now in Mexico and when I was researching the story was that initial build quality was not as good, perhaps some other cost savings in addition to the outsourcing. Or, maybe rumors and figments...Now a part of the 'ZF' corporate family...makers of our stellar power steering racks and select other items....

Otherwise, your are probably angling for Koni "classic" reds. They are adjustable but require removal to do so. Their softest setting is supposed to be near-stock.

If you have Bilsteins, you car replace with same, get spring perches and replace with the other two-- or send them to Bilstein for a rebuild which I think is $49 per-- a great way to go IMHO.
