    I'm relying on memory here, so somebody please correct me if I'm off...but I thought the "comfort kit" was hydropnuematic suspension, S trim.

    the comfort kit was probably a box of tissue, after you saw the price of the s options.

    thanks paul, i'll see whats hanging under the front. (i do have a front sway bar.)

    Many cars origianlly equipped with hydropnuemtic were converted back to torsion bars. But hydropnumatic cars usually did not have sway bars. Does your car have original wheels? 14" fuchs were also part of the "comfort package"...I believe. Keep in mind, this is all from memory, and that fades as the decades go by...

    the only items on the invoice that i thought would be possible comfort group items would be the tinted glass, rear defrost or 3 speed wipers.

    invoice lists 6jx15's as an option.

    i'll look at the struts. i'm sure you are correct, the front end is quite firm.

    thanks, tom

    Yup... 14" wheels. Taller sidewall gave a more "comfortable" ride. Many T's came with this option (S instrumentation, trim and comfort group)
