My old dura ace 8 sp sti shifters are about to give up the ghost. My question: can I replace these with the new 9 sp sti shifters without having to make any other replacements or adjustments? I hate to replace a perfectly good cassette or chainring if I don't have to.

The cassette has got to go, you'll probably want to change the chain at the same time. The rest should be just fine. TTFN

9 speed dura ace STI's work fine with 8 speed Dura Ace components. My current set up is D/A 7400 series components with 7700 STI's. I have over 3000 miles on this setup. They shift fine with the 8 speed cassette.
