Can anyone tell from the pictures what sort of strut this is, and whether it is a Boge leg or bilstein? I believe the car has sport suspension code 474 from the factory.
I have got the roll pin out from the bottom of the leg and got the green collar removed but the strut insert will still not remove. Any ideas?
Many thanks

From a dull memory Boge were painted black, and described as the the comfort option, usually with 15" cookie cutter wheels on the earlier 77-82 911 SC

Bilsteins were painted green and tended to be matched to 16" Fuchs. Being the sport set-up, and gave a firmer ride.

Both 15" and 16" wheels and tyre combos had the same overall rolling radius achieved by using higher profile tyres on the 15" wheels, which with the Boge "softer" shockers provided a more "comfortable" ride.

With the same rolling radius on the wheel/tyre combo, the wheels could be swapped around without upsetting speedo read out etc.

I think this set-up arrangement carried on to the 3.2 but not sure. :?:
