That's interesting to hear about other cars having problems due to stiff coil springs.

Now regarding our cars I think more loads are transfered to the shock towers than one may realize. Since, there are no stop bumpers except on the shocks lots of loads gets transfered to the shock towers when one bottoms out. So, perhaps it's a mute point when comparing torsion bars to coil overs in regard to loads on the shock towers. Yes, more loads from the coil overs are acting on the shock towers up to point of bottoming. But I'm sure cracks have formed around shock towers on old 911's with torsion bars especially those that were "abused". Does anyone agree with my thinking or am I way off base?
