I've used the Leatherique oil on the dash and door panels with no adverse effects. I think some on the board are worried that soaking these panels in oil will affect the glue bond and cause the...

If your use is all street driving, what benefit would non-stock mounts provide? Especially since you will experience increased NVH.

I don't see the benefit.

Ha! I already said I was a cheap bastard. If I bought one of these cars with 100k miles I’d probably drive it until one of the shocks started leaking or the ride just got so bad that I couldn’t stand...

You may need to have sport chrono to have that option, I'm not sure.

That's called a "support". Looks like PN 997-537-331-01-01C. It mounts to the door as you suspect. Not the car.

I'm not sure how it mounts. Online parts diagrams don't show any separate mounting...

Good Lord! I can't think of many cars that would be worse to buy as a project than a 928.

MOST worn out shocks never leak.
