I recently did a suspension overhaul when I replaced my inner CV joints out of necessity.  Problem I am having is they cannot align it properly. Because of the lowered suspension and change in geometry the rear toe in is more than it should be. I have ordered a pair of rear control arms from TRS to allow for adjusting toe, hopefully. So now I am looking to replace the Meghan racing tie rods with something that will allow for greater adjustment for proper alignment of the front end. Does anyone have an experience/insight into this type of setup for the street? Can anyone recommend outer tie rods? Will stock factory ones work?

 

 

 

List of what was replaced:

All wheel bearings with *** units repacked with Hi Temp synthetic grease

All 4 struts/shocks with Bilstein B8's along with upper bearings/caps, bump stops, dust boots

All 4 springs with H&R 29779 Lowering springs (Blue)

All 4 lower coffin bars/ball joints with Meyle units

2 rear track arms with units from Vertex auto.

2 rear control arm/ball joint Meyle units.

2 front track arms not sure if Meyle or vertex auto.

2 Inner tie rods

2 outer tie rods with Meghan racing units, adjustable blue color

4 Drop links with Tarrett adjustable units

Eibach 26mm front swaybar along with bushings

factory 19.6 rear swaybar along with bushings

      Pulling the front end on the GT3 to get at a dead horn... found the dust boot on the front strut torn.  Has anyone replaced one of these?  I had a competition suspension set up from Jae Lee at Mirage in San Diego and don't want to mess it up, but need to replace the boot.  Can I just remove the mounting at the top and drop the suspension and replace the boot from the top?  ANy help on this is greatly appreciated!

      Hi all, 
       
      Recently purchased a used 2000 boxster S. Its almost 100% stock apart from being on H&R lowering springs (photos).
       
      The height is a bit annoying seeing as my driveway is akin to Mt Everest and as a result of the lower height the camber on the back is slightly out (and camber wear on tires).
       
      Are the non S model springs the same? or close enough? Im sure they're not, but someone is selling a complete 1998 set on the New Zealand version of eBay (trademe) for the equivalent of about $70 so its hard to pass up.
       
      Any info would be great.
       
      Cheers!

      I currently have a 2002 Porsche Boxster S with 86k miles on it.  I drive it spirited and do some autocross.  I noticed that my right strut started to make some noise and the ride does not seem as firm as it once was.  I am thinking about upgrading my suspension with the ROW M030 kit.  I am interested in adding a bit more handling while maintaining everyday comfort and drivability.  I have read a bunch of articles in regards to all the other parts you should replace when you do the ROW M030 swap.  Upon pricing all the parts they are almost 3k!!  Here are the parts and pricing I have so far:
       
      202                99734301800 2 - Front Strut Mounts 175.5                98633305906 2 - Rear Strut Mounts 74                99634351505 2 - Strut Bearings (front only) 1795
                     ROW M030 European Sport Suspension Kit 170                986DLINKF Front Drop Links 170                986DLINKR Rear Drop Links 13                986FRCOMP front compensation plates(size? 3mm or 6.5mm) 13                986RRCOMP rear compensation plates(size? 3mm or 6.5mm) 38                99634350500 Front Shock Bellows 38                98633350501 Rear Shock Bellows 35                99634330102 Front Bump Stops 50                98633330101 Rear Bump Stops
       
      Can you experts please help me determine if I am missing anything else or are there some parts that I just dont need.....
       
      Also any tutorials/advice that anyone can give me would be great.
       
      THANK  YOU!

      hey guys , past couple months my cayenne s 04 air suspension warning light has been on, after a minute of driving. when i try lowing or raising the vehicle, the front end works fine but the rear suspension stay stationery in raise mode. even when using the diagnostic to force the rear to lower nothing happens .fault codes in the level control system was for rear suspension holding valve . so i went ahead and replaced both rear holding valve and recalibrate the suspension. it worked fine for two months .now the warning light is back the rear suspension is stuck in high and not lowing.
      new fault codes p1780 , 1400 
      im unsure what to do. do i replace the valve again or is there some else wrong 
       
      what do you guys think?

      Hi all,
      I am curious about the estimated cost of a 4 wheel alignment on my 2003 cab. Any info would be appreciated. Also, is this something that can be done by most tire dealers, or only by P car garages?
