'03 Boxster Shocks, Suspension?


Recommended Posts

This has been happening for quite a while, so I finally decided to post it. As I make right turns on city streets and accelerate, the car feels like if the rear tires are bouncing off the pavement, I thought maybe it was the tires but I recently replaced them and it is still happening. Somebody mentioned that it could be the shocks. Any ideas? has this happened to anybody?

Thanks.

Only right turns? Is the bouncing accompanied by any noises?

Thanks for replying, but no noise just the car skipping or bouncing on the pavement. I notice it more on right turns but will keep an eye on left turns. Maybe since right turns are sharper than left. By the way, this happens on dry pavement.

Check around the rear shocks where the shaft exits and look for dampness. If a seal has blown, you should see evidence of oil around the shock body.

Is the car still under warranty? If so, have you approached the dealer and asked their opinion?

Well, I finally took it to the dealer today to have the problem looked at.

However, the dealer said that it could be the tires even though they are brand new Pirelli P-zeros. He also said that if the tires are not Porsche certified (or something like that) and it is in fact the tires, it is not covered under the warranty and they will charge me $120.00 for the inspection. I told him that I thought it was BS but left the car there anyways.

Is there a list of tires that Porsche certifies? And if there is, where can I find it.

Thanks
