Planning a small overhaul of my 996 C2 Mk1 suspension/wheel/tires Current: Suspension: stock Wheels: OEM Sport Design 2 (bbs 2pc- wheels)(mk1 gt3 wheels) 18x7.5 et50 18x10 et65 Tires: Sumitomo HTR Z III (225/40/18- 285/30/18) Plan: Suspension: H&R Street Performance Coilovers + H&R Sway Bars (front and rear) Wheels: OZ Ultraleggera 19x8.5 et53 19x11 et65 Tire: Hankook Ventus V12 235/35/19 295/30/19 Any thoughts on the new set-up, issues i may have? experiences with the coilovers,wheels, tires? With the increased wheel width I think the wheels will be flush with the fenders but if not are spacers even an option?- does anyone have this set up? need to roll fenders? pics? thanks for your feedback
Just bought a '98 Boxster. Car has H&R Coil overs that feel like four pieces of metal instead of a suspension kit. Is this normal? Of course on a smooth street you can corner as if you were playing a Tron Lightcycle video game but any bumps are far from comfortable. Considering selling them and going with M030. Anyone want a set of low mileage coil overs? I know they're low mileage because I bought the car from an employee of mine who only put 15K miles on the car since he got it and he had the coil overs installed.
If you've had your car aligned on a computer, what did you tell the shop the car was most setup like? GT2, Turbo? I'm assuming the alignment computer is going to crash if you tell it that it's a stock 996. I'm going in for an alignment tomorrow, just for toe, camber and caster. I mistakenly installed a steering wheel one spline off, and had a cheapy alignment done, now that I've corrected the wheel it's off. It's also off because I had my engine out and also removed many suspenion components during the restoration (both front and rear). I removed one of my coilovers to repair a broken bolt, so I'm sure that is contributing to the bad alignment. I wasn't happy with the front ride height so I setup the car at 26" from ground to wheel well on all 4's (yes I know CB would change that). I would go in for a CB but can't make it to a good shop in the bay area right now, have to settle on just an alignment. The last good alignment I had done included a corner balance (ALL done by hand) and the car was 100% perfect. I'm taking it to the dealer and am wondering what I should be telling them as far as specs (or what car to mimic).
