Replacing front dampers 1973 2.4S

Hi all,
 
I need to replace the front Bilsteins on my 1973 2.4S.
 
Design 911 have two types available. ‘Heavy Duty’ or ‘Sport’.
 
I‘m inclined towards the Sport version but wondered if anyone has any experience with either type? 
 
thanks in advance 
 
Graham

    what type struts do you have ?  Assume Bilstein .  I've always the softer 'green'  bilstein upfront before with the 'yellow' in the rear ( although confusingly the yellows were refered to as sport many years ago & the green as standard ) .  Currently running a slightly custom valved set up as recommended years ago by tuthills

    Hi James,
     
    yes, it has Bilstein’s fitted.
    I think I’ll consider a custom set up further down the line. 
    Only just got the car so want to get used to it before making too many adjustments.
     
    thanks for the input.
