Shock Questions

Hello All,
I am putting the finishing touches on the restoration of my 1987 ex-Mod D90 and I am running into some "conflicting" information regarding the selection of my new shocks. After some research, I have selected a set of Koni shocks and the part numbers that the Koni NA site suggests are:
8240-1181SPX - Front
8240-1182SPX - Rear


The distributor in the UK contacted Koni - Holland and received confirmation that the fitment for "my vehicle" would be:
8240-1181SPX - Front
8240-1190SPX - Rear


When I look at the 8240-1190SPX on the Koni site, this shock comes back for fitment for a 110.
The distributor commented that:
"This uses the same fitting at the bottom pin as the 90 model"


I was hoping that some members have run into these same issues and could confirm which shock would work for my application.
Thanks again,
Darrell

Fitment is the same but load for the shock may be different.

IIRC, the 1190 have a bit longer travel and they told me the valving was similar to the 1182. I unfortunately lost the email with the information. see if the distributor can tell you. I'm running the 1190 on my 90 and they are fabulous.

Hello All,
I received an update from the distributor in the UK who stated: "I have checked the bump and rebound rates between the two and although they are different its marginal and would not transfer into how the vehicle rides." So it sound like the distributor is confirming that the differences between these two shocks are small and would not affect the ride/handling on my D90. So with that said, I am confirming my order "over the Pond"...I appreciate all for your thoughts and input....Darrell
