Shock Absorbers

Looking at changing the shock absorbers on my 1988 3.2 Carrera.
I would welcome any recommendation. Car will be used for general road and touring.

I fitted Bilstein sports to my Targa. The original shocks were shot when I bought the car so I can't say how they compare to standard.  To me they felt pretty good on the goat tracks we call roads in South Wales. Firm without being crashy. I also replaced all of the bushes at the same time which helped.

Hi I fitted Spax adjustable to my 87 3.2  about 2 years ago  I also fitted Superpro bushes to the front  as you will find the rubber bushes  all seized up and reducing the suspension  travel it can all be done by any competent mechanic also up graded to turbo tie rods as well   I don't track my car just normal road use .
