well we test fitted it before cutting and there was no other way. the C2 metal bumper is much longer than the 2 radiator colling ducts and the metal touches the grill and there was a lot of fitting gaps. so we ended up cutting it, but it was worth it.
Thanks for the info.
bump for some answers...
Hi, I just replaced my 2003 C2 front bumper to a Turbo front bumper. The bumper was a straight bolt on as far as all screws and side markers, but we had to cut the front aluminum “crash beam” down to the 2 bolts that hold it to the body. I realize the safety compromise, was there another way to do it? Did I need to replace the front beam to a Turbo beam? I made some other cosmetic changes you can see it here.
menash23 replied to maci911's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)did the front bumper fit on the existing bumper attachments? or u needed to buy a kit to fit it?
My wheels are 19x10 and I guess spacers will not work in this case since the outer lip also rubs. But anyone has an idea about the OEM springs; will it help to go back to OEM? It will increase my ride by 1" It’s about $1000 to install them and I want to make sure before I spend the cash...
19x10 offset 36 I believe your offset is wrong. For the rears, I think the correct offset is 65. the site shows only 19x11 for the 996 with 68 offset, I looked at the Cayman 19x10 offset and its 36. so what do i need to do? is there a way to change the offset? will OEM springs make the ride high enough to avoid the rubbing? BTW, the rubbing is in the inside of the wheels and very little on the outside.

menash23 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Hi, I have a 2003 996 C2, I bought it with Eibach springs 7213.002 (couldn’t fins the exact lowering rate but I think its 1” F/R). The car has 19 champion rims and I just installed Michelin Pilot sports 295/30/19 in the rear and now every time I hit a small bump or entering a drive way the tires rub. I had Dunlops 285/30/19 before and never had this issue. My option are to go back to OEM springs, will it resolve the rubbing? I don't mid the ride height as long as its not rubbing. Are there any other solutions out there? Thank you, Jacob
what are the benifits of the EVO Shift Link, i only use the car as a daily driver. do i need it with the B&M short shifter? thanks, Jacob
