JTS parts on Q2
A couple of days ago I took my GT JTDm Q2 to the garage due to weird noises coming from the suspension. They told me that front shock absorbers and front ARB were worn out and they had to change, so I left the car at the garage for a day. I took it the other day and the noises were gone, everything was perfect.
JTS is more common here than the JTDm, and all of the JTDm sold here were equipped with Q2. I guess there are less than 20 JTDm Q2s all around the country. So them being able to supply and change the parts in just one day got me thinking. Since Q2s are so rare in here, probably they are not aware that some suspension components are different in JTS and JTDm Q2. As a result, I believe that they used GT JTS parts they had in stock (I checked the invoice and the price of each individual item also matches with the prices of GT JTS parts.)
Frankly, I didn't feel anything negative in ride comfort or the handling even when I pushed the car to the limits, however I would like to know if using GT JTS shock absorbers and ARB on a Q2 is something which should make me uncomfortable.
