Default What is this Hose to Front Strut in trunk ??

I found this while surfing das internet, and am wondering what it is...

maybe an insert with a remote reservoir in the trunk ??

I don't see the hose on Ground Control's website

Ground Control makes the adjustable camber plate. The strut insert with remote reservoir could be anybody's.

I dug deeper. I was close, but air shocks are to give you the slammed look.

Those are racing shocks with remote nitrogen reservoirs. Seem to be readily available for water-cooled 911s, but I'm sure someone must make a kit for the early cars too.
