  1. Alignment done. Not the greatest result: What should I do next. Tech said that rear camber is at limiters. Thanks, Jake
  2. I just finished changing the rear springs, I have not done alignment YET. Rear dropped a WAY more than front: front 3/4", rear 1.5". Is that normal with Eibach Pro Kit? I try to get alignment done tomorrow or Tuesday.
  3. I have 01 S Tip and last weekend I changed front springs to Eibach Pro's. No problem there. This weekend is time to do same to the rear. I have a close situation at the rear. Clearance to the strut is about 2-3mm (~0.1") after using 7mm spacers. With a 1" lower spring this should not get worse?? Or am I wrong? I need the car on Monday for work, so all complications including rubbing will be "lethal" :oops: Help, please, Jake
  4. Insite: I have 01 S Tip and I heard that Tip cars already have M030 sways in the back? I'm currently in the middle installing Eibach Pro springs and I might have a possibility to get M030 S front sway, would that work? Do you think that I should change rear sway to non-S M030? Thanks, Jake
  5. If you read the whole long thing, you found out (it was somewhere in the beginning) that turbo one does not work. I don't recall the reason, but the gurus here probably will. Sorry, I cannot be more help. Jake P.S. Later I found this: http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?s...49&hl=turbo
  6. It worked. My fuel gauge is OK. E-brake is OK. Only thing is that I lost my cruise, I must forgot to code it somewhere. Back to the shop, some day... It is not that important to me.
  7. See my blog for my mods: http://www.myspace.com/porsche986s
  8. I use Mintex pads and I'm quite happy with price/dust.
  9. This is what I did: Then I wired the opener next to drivers side sun shade. It took less than an hour an switch was around $25 from Sunset. :D
  10. Glad it was relatively benign..... Happy Boxstering.... Mike For me it would rather be the tank or pump, because warranty woud have paid for those and it would have cost me less.... :D
  11. UPDATE: It was one water hose which had rubbed in to something solid. Shop said that they have never seen that water hose so close. So I must thank local stealership which repaired an oil leak just before I purchased the car 21mo and 12kmls ago. And of course my warranty don't cover the hose.
  12. Yeah, Autohauz. I ordered my rear brake rotors from them, because they were the cheapest. They cancelled the order for not in stock, but they already charged my carrd. It took forever to get them reverse the charge, they were firsrt saying that it will drop off after 3-5 business days. Nice, but I do not have extra $350 to play around with. It took me several calls to get this finally resolved so I was able to order them from Sunset. Bad taste, do NOT recommend Autohauz, Jake
  13. I had my low coolant warning come on and because temps were OK I kept driving because I was only few mile from home. When I stopped to a red light I saw some white steam on my mirror. I parked the car and steam continued. Temps never went past 0 on 180 on the gauge. I was only 2 miles from home, but I called my wife to pick me up. We returned 2 hrs later with water. Car had cooled down, so I added almost 1 gallon to get it to full mark and drove home. @ home I looked again and it was not visible @ the tank. So I filled up 1 gallon more and fired it up for a short period of time again. I checked the level, it was OK. My guess is either waterpump or hose? Any better ideas? Car runs fine.
  14. Update: I finally did re-code my cluster today and it looks like it worked! Of course I can not be sure before I put some miles on it, but I think gas gauge works better now. Also my e-brake light started working after re-code. Thanks Bill & Loren for all your help! :renntech: :renntech:
  15. I bought these 2.5 months ago and I have been very happy. (no affiliation) Rotors & pads Here is a link to my blog when I changed them (look for May 10, 2008): My Blog And one pic: I did my rear brakes on 4th of July. I still need to paint the calibers. G2 paint kit need less than 70F and I'm in Las Vegas.... :D
