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.
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.
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?
I started noticing this intermittent creak/groan on the driver's side front suspension, every time I egress the car, after a spirited drive.
I have had some creaking due to the lubrication loss in the ball joint area from the rear and have used the hole-in-the-rubber-boot to inject grease to keep the noise from recurring. I did the same for the front, just to be sure.
This noise puzzles me.
Based on my research, it may be the front strut mount bearing but didn't want to go about replacing parts without your opinions.
It doesn't occur when the steering wheel is moved from corner to corner though or feel different during a drive.
Shows up only when there is downward pressure on the foot area in the driver side, during egress or when pressure is applied on the car side fender over/near the strut area.
Here is a video of the latter, for audio on two creak/groans between the spring movement.
Appreciate your insights on what this can be...
My car is clocking nearly 173K ...so wondering if this can be a simple DIY or figure out the need to have a complete strut bearing and/or strut replacement.
