  1. I have an 03 Boxster with 95k on the clock. When you first start driving the car, everything is tight and quiet. After about 25 - 30 miles, the front start to knock lightly and rumble. Most noticeable between 0 and 30mph in queuing traffic. You can feel the knocks on the steering wheel and brake pedal. The further you go the worse it gets. The sound is like a bolt being jarred in a plastic bottle. Up to now it has had new bake disks and pads. Track rod ends and wishbones replaced and something That looks like coffin struts changed. Wheels and tyres have been checked. When the knock
  2. Hi Guys, So for my car , 996 C2 , 2003 with 70 TMiles and M030 suspension . Im currently in process of purchasing several parts for suspension refresh , so to say . Whole process came to a corner , left or right , from perspective of refreshing it since rear shock absorbers , i have planned to purchase are not available , anywhere . At least not for reasonable/decent price Plan is to refresh my stock M030 shocks , front and rear , where Bilstein B4 is standard which came with car . Now , i have received front shocks but rea
  3. Pulling the front end on the GT3 to get at a dead horn... found the dust boot on the front strut torn. Has anyone replaced one of these? I had a competition suspension set up from Jae Lee at Mirage in San Diego and don't want to mess it up, but need to replace the boot. Can I just remove the mounting at the top and drop the suspension and replace the boot from the top? ANy help on this is greatly appreciated!
  4. I recently did a suspension overhaul when I replaced my inner CV joints out of necessity. Problem I am having is they cannot align it properly. Because of the lowered suspension and change in geometry the rear toe in is more than it should be. I have ordered a pair of rear control arms from TRS to allow for adjusting toe, hopefully. So now I am looking to replace the Meghan racing tie rods with something that will allow for greater adjustment for proper alignment of the front end. Does anyone have an experience/insight into this type of setup for the street? Can anyone recommend outer tie rod
  5. Folks, 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
  6. 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:
  7. 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
  8. 2000 986 Tiptronic, nearly 99k miles. I am getting an annoying popping/cracking sound coming from the left rear. While driving it sounds like it is high in the suspension, possibly related to the shock absorber, shock absorber mount, or spring. I only hear the noise at low speeds - going over speed bumps or backing out of my driveway in the morning. I know it is difficult to pinpoint what the issue could be by just my description, so I am hoping that someone else has heard this noise and it is obvious to someone who has experienced it before. It could be as simple as a bad shock/strut, bu
  9. Ok this post is NOT really about comparing the roads, it's more about my less then stellar experience with my recent purchase. I picked up the car in Stuttgart a beautiful 991 S silverGT, drove it around Europe and then waited for ever for it to get to the US. Immediately after getting it in the US I declared the roads in the US as ****. Nothing comparable to the great roads in Germany, Switzerland, Italy (yeah right!) and Austria. Long story short, Porsche Stevens Creek forgot to remove the suspension restraint on my car upon receiving it the US, the handed it over to me, I was extremely exc
  10. Just figured i would share. Christmas Day heading down to see the parents i had a loud BANG come from the front left. sounded like i had a rock kick up under the car or something. Completely flat, fresh pavement, so no bumps of any kind around. Anyways i didn't see anything come out the back of the car and no warning lights so i figured i'd keep driving. Got to my parents, and as i'm pulling in i get a suspension warning. Weird, still same ride height so enjoyed the day with my family. Coming home, the car was at the loading height in the front. definitely sitting on the bump sto
  11. Has anyone had any problems with the sport exhaust failing (without and indication lights)? Does tracking damage this temporarily? Brief history for my car for perspective: bought my 2007 C4S with sport exhaust and sport/chrono package as a CPO 2 years ago. The sport exhaust didn't work when I bought it so dealer tried to fix it but didn't work still so they fixed it again. Since then, it worked the vast majority of the time except after my first two track experiences (which by the way were incredible in this car!). I noticed that by the end of each track day I could not hear the sport exhaus
  12. Hi all, Does anyone have the torque settings for the suspension bits on the 997.2? Bits to carrier, bits to body, bits to cross member, bits to bits.. including the sway/stabilizer bars? I'm replacing stabilizer, control arms, tie rods, springs, toe arms etc and need to know how much muscle to put on them. Thanks!
  13. See broken part in this Front Left wheel well pic of my 04 996... assume it is a suspension stroke sensor, but what does it do, and more importantly, what is the consequence of driving it un-repaired? I wonder how the ECU uses the input if there is no electronic suspension on my car... hmmm. The part it mounts to is plastic so it must have struck road debris I am guessing... if anyone knows the Part number so I can order a replacement many thanks in advance! Thx!
  14. I have a 99 Carrera Cab and want to upgrade to the ROW M030 (sport) suspension. Anyone know dealers who will handle the transaction, which involves ordering the package of components from Germany? Thanx
  15. With my Boxster S, it was the lateral arms... the ones that goes front to back. In the 197K miles of ownership, I think I replaced at least all of them twice and a few three times. My 2009 C2S has a clunking/rattle in the right rear. I had it up on jacks and could not find it. I checked the three bolts on the top of the struts, I put a tire iron in there and twisted and wedged and no joint/bushing moved more than the others. I am very sure it is a control arm. So, unless someone in Philly has some chassis ears they can lend me for a day, I want to just replace the most common offender.
  16. Hi everyone, i have replaced the front suspension top mounts on my 2000my C4 with monoballs as the factory rubber bushes were split. I cant stand the noise and harshness on the road and want to change back to the rubber bushes. The car has standard suspension which i thought was the same setup as the C4S and turbo (with different damping / springs). So the question is why cant i fit the sports suspension top mounts which are cheaper? (IX73 / IX74) The have a different part number but are they really any different? Thanks in advance.
  17. Hello, took my 2005 Cayenne to the mechanic due to tires not uniform wear. They said I need new control arms and replace the steering bushing. We can't find the part number for just the steering bushing. So I need help locating the part or where can I buy it, I just don't want to buy a new steering rack when just the bushing needs replacement. The SUV only has 63000 miles on it. Thanks for your response.
  18. Didn't find any TT or awd specific posts regarding this, so I was hoping I could get a quick walk through of the front control arm replacement procedure. My car is an '01 996TT. I found this, and the control arm and track arm look very similar in the picture so I am guessing it is closely resembling ours? ( http://kevingosselin.blogspot.com/2009/08/boxster-control-arm-replacment-in-total.html ) But that link doesn't deal with any front half shafts. Do I need to remove the hub assembly to do my front control arms? Should I have new CV boots/clamps standing by? Thanks for any pointers! -Conn
  19. Putting in an order for some front suspension parts today, and I just want to make sure I have the correct sway bar bushings. I believe it is these, but since GT2 is in parenthises I'm not sure if they actually mean it is for a turbo or not. Can anyone tell for sure? http://www.pelicanparts.com/cgi-bin/smart/more_info.cgi?pn=996-343-792-16-M100&catalog_description=&Front%2520Sway%2520Bar%2520Bushing%252C%2520Stock%2520Rubber%2520%2528%2532%2520per%2520car%252C%2520sold%2520individually%2529%252C%2520%2539%2539%2536%2520GT%2533%2520%2528%2531%2539%2539%2539%252D%2530%2535%2529%252C%252
  20. Just wondering if anyone has experienced a light dull knocking noise from their front end at low / manouvering type speeds. The car has recently been at the dealers for a different fault... but on the complimentary health check they spotted that the n/s/f shock absorber bump stop is broken, would this cause the noise? They didn't give me a price for this... wondered if its something i can do myself?
  21. I've got a 98 Boxster completely stock. I'm trying to decide if I put in a limited slip differential or upgrade to the M030 suspension first. I'm pretty much looking for improvement in autocross. Any thoughts?
  22. Hey all, New the forum so hello there! Rebuilding a Carrera two and pulling some mangled-a$$ control arms off the front. They are stamped with "996.341.341.05" When I google this number all I get is european eBay listings and some random russian website. Anybody have any idea what this is? Cheap chinese knockoff control arms? I have a 99634105316 to replace it which is clearly a slightly different casting but appears dimensionally similar. I would share a photo but I am in the shop (read- my garage) right now. Cheers! Gabe J
  23. Hi Guys, my 97 box has got around 230,000 miiles on it and the suspension has decided to call it a day. It has the Tech Sport Package and H&R Springs. I'm going to be pulling it all apart and taking a deep look into what i need to replace on all four corners. I already know that the struts need replaced as well some serious clunk issues at the passenger front corner. If anybody has any tips, tricks, pitfalls, recommendations, modest upgrades, etc, they would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Ked
  24. Hi guys just registered, great site and clearly a great resource for owners. I am looking for some advice. I have a 2008 Boxster, owned for 2 years with 34k. Since I bought the car it has had a rattling noise, which seems to have worsened The noise is like a loose rattle coming from the front of the car, both sides. The noise actually sounds like something loose, not an overly loud thump, but a definite rattle, almost like some loose trim (which it isnt). The noise only happens over small bumps, cobbles etc when traveling straight ahead, or turning left and right, ie all the time. Ove
  25. MY 99 C2 sits over 3/4 inch lower in the rear than front when measured from level ground to top of wheel well with consistent tire pressure. Assuming this is the correct way to measure, is this an indication that the rear springs are tired and need replaced? I presume the car should sit level with new springs?. Car appears to be aligned properly although I have not had it aligned in the 2 years I've owned the vehicle.
