Glad you called SRP.

I did feel the ride quality was better with the Fox units. However, I wasn't comparing apples to apples, per se.

I had the 23/31 torsions and revalved B's on an 87 Carrera. It was taut, handled well, but very sensitive/harsh over bumps.

Sold it and went to an 87 930 with a mixed torsion/coil setup and replaced it with 400/550 coils and revalved RSR Bilsteins. Then went 600/750 coils with Fox. I notice a difference in the Fox from softest to a firmer setting - both in terms of comfort for street, and handling for the track.

If you keep yours mostly on the street, I'd probably recommend softer torsions or coils, or going back to rubber bushings. Your setup is the standard one for track, and not for comfort. It's a hard balance. I'm willing to sacrifice some road comfort as I don't do long trips. I'd rather it transition on the track. Hope that helps.
