  1. How can i test if these coilovers are still good? Car feels fine and does not bounce. Do these require some special maintenance?
  2. Also one side the thread is a few mm higher than the other
  3. Thanks for all suggestions and great feedback. Today was my first trip to work and that was fun.. While i dont drive like a maniac, i do like the punch when i floor it.. I will dd this car to work, 4 days a week and its around 45 miles round trip. So that means around 9k / year..
  4. Is your car dropped? any aftermarket suspension? I have H&R coilovers and the rear's have some camber and I am noticing that my rear passenger side also has less thread than my driver side but its not as major as yours... My car is equiped with an LSD so I dont think the rear passenger tire gets more power than the rear driver... Check the height from the ground to the border of the 1/4 pannel on both rear sides to see if maybe the car is more inclined on one side.
  5. I did not get any documentation transfered from owner 1 but I will probably call that place on the carfax and see if they still have the service history.. Hopefully they installed the LN bearing solution and the RMS while they had the tranny out.
  6. Thanks for the suggestion, I think I read it on the forums one time, usually people cut the two ends of the filter and expand it to see if there are any metal pieces.. A magnetic plug is a must in my book for my next oil change. I am planning on doing 0W40 Mobile 1.. How often do you guys change the oil on these cars? The maintenance book says 15k miles? but I think that is wayy too long. My wife's audi Q7 is every 10k miles so I though that was a good number?
  7. Thanks guys! I forgot to mention, I am the 3rd owner of this car (bought it from a PCA member).., carfax history says its clean but only a few maintenance records from the first owner. One thing that caught my attention was that the carfax says that the "flywheel serviced", "transmission checked" & "front crankshaft seal replaced".. I assume that for all this they had to take the engine out... What would a carfax say if the IMS was replaced? I assume if they removed the flywheel, then they checked the IMS but who knows....
  8. Hey Guys! After a some months of research for a 996 that would met my expectations I finally found it last week! I was trying to find a car that had a factory aero kit, and its exterior color to be guards red or speed yellow... So I was fortunate enough to find a mint Speed Yellow 1999 Coupe with 51k miles at a very good price!! The car has so mane factory & aftermarket options such as Aero kit, 18" wheels, LSD, H&R coilovers, Fabspeed exhaust & cargraphic headers.. The car has no leaks around the IMS bearing and I believe 1999 where double row so they have a less % of IMS fail
